This beer was first brewed in 1978 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our brewery. It has a golden-yellow color with a slightly flowery yeast, honey-ish aroma, tastes a little spicy and is full-bodied in initial taste, mild before swallowing and soft with a refined sparkle and fades with a well-balanced hint of bitterness. It is an especially drinkable and harmonious beer. Conrad Seidl, known as the Austrian “Pope of Beers”, on the Jahrhundert-Bier: “It is a malty beer that pronounces the precious earthy quality of malted barley.”

yespr (33547) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2010
50 cL bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a dense and white head. Aroma is slight grassy and cornish. Crisp. Bitter, slight metallic and malty flavoured. Clean and crisp at first with a vague diacetyl note (very vague). Bitter and cleansing dry grassy finish.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2005
A light orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flaovr is sweet malty and hoppy with a slightly bitter end. A cleanly made beer - just not too exciting.

oh6gdx (21535) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2007
Bottled. Yellowish colour with mediumsized white bubbly head, leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet grassyness along with a bit bready hints. Flavour is bready, earthy, slightly acidic hoppy and caramellish. Ok balanced, but I got bored quite fast. Long straw-hayish aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 Bottled. Pale golden, hazy, firm head. Papery malty nose. Buttery and dry with rounded toffee maltiness and some grassy hops in the finish. Top quality malt accented beer.

yngwie (14669) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2008
Bottle. A clear, pale golden beer with a decent white head. Pale malt and fruits in the aroma. A vague hint of anise as well? Sweet and slightly grainy in the mouth, quite fruity and with some hops. Would like more, but it’s appropriate for the style. It almost feel a bit candy-like. Medium body and pleasant carbonation. Short finish with fruityness and a candy-like sweetness. A decent beer, but also rather boring. Quaffable though. (080829)

harrisoni (14460) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
500ml bottle from Bottle Shop Canterbury. Cant believe i have not had this and perhaps i should put on my rates from bamberg and munich so i am up to date. Cos i liked the ayinger bar in munich. Anyway here i am drinking this beer on a train on my way home to pizza and football. So i am in a happy place except i have just had a pint of girardin kriekenlambic and any beer after that is going to suffer. Looks clear from the bottle. Noble hop aroma. Its a half decent beer to be honest . Finish is particularly good. Its rather good. Dec12 on bottle so fresh but not super fresh but tastes pretty good. Wow shockingly good. Thats a good pager. Noble hops are good. Proves you dont have to overly do things just do them well. Mouthfeel is clean as anything. Just so damn drinkable. Surprise of the day for me.
