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.”

50 cl bottle. Light brown pale color with medium head. Aroma is quite dull, but taste strikes with acid and some bitterness. It is quite full bodied for a lager like beer and has long after taste for its kind. All in all a good one.

nephirem (53) - CROATIA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours a clear golden color with medium, creamy looking white head. Smell of malts, yeast and grass. Thin body with medium to high carbonation. Taste of malts, yeast, grass. A bit of hops and caramel notes present. Nicely balanced and very smooth. Overall, pretty good and highly drinkable. Nice one.

Bottle, as pictured. Had no idea what this was but went for it. A nice Ayinger beer as always. Very clean, crisp. Golden pour, minimal white head. Just extremely clean is the best way to describe it. A little light straw, a little light flowery feel. Very nice beer.

biir (453) - Berlin, - JAN 6, 2016
Flasche - Goldgelb mit gute Schaumkrone. Das Bier ist weich, geradezu samtig. Der Körper sehr voll. Aromen von Honig, aber auch Flüssigkleber. Karamell, Brot. Mir ein wenig zu süßlich.

Saeglopur (1434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 23, 2015
Tapped from wooden barrel at Ayingers Speis und Trank, Munich.
Dark yellow body, moderately hazy body, with a big, frothy, rocky, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of bread, flowers, honey, grass, some earth.
Tastes of grains, flowers, grass, bread, earth, wood, some citric hopa, some honey.
Light, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, floral, grassy, a bit citric, even a bit zesty/piney, also a bit sweet.

Really nice. Very easy and quaffable, with lovely floral and earthy notes, especially in the taste. Perfect balance between drinkability and flavour. Top style example, propably the best I’ve had so far.

Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer, nose is crisp and caramel like. Aroma is grainy, dry, medium hopy on grassy and peppery side, vegetable touch, bit thin body, not the best of this brewery.
