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.

500 ml bottle. Has a crystal clear, light-straw color that reminds me of champagne ... except champagne doesn’t have a snow-white, frothy head like this does. Aroma is subtle with notes of honey and sweet flowers. Taste is sweet at first, and the there is a slight bitterness on the backend. The flavor of honey is very pronounced, but not overpowering like mead. It has a medium-body with lively carbonation. The finish fades quickly, but smoothly. Overall, a very nice beer that I am enjoying more and more as I sip it. :)

AndresTM (338) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2015
The aroma is delicate floral hops, grain, malts, polen, and honey. Very sweet and natural. The palate is medium to thin, with a slightly oily body and medium effervescence. The taste is moderately bitter, with the subtlest touch of sweet, for a tasty dry finish. A spicy hop and barley character persists. Delicious, refreshing, and surprisingly intricate.

Fantomasus (254) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw with a white head of tightly packed bubbles. Clean fresh simple aroma: hay, floral, and cheese. Not a tone of flavor but what there is, is nice. Light body, average carbonation, short bitter finish. Has to be my favorite lager.

Senka (800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2015
50cl bottle. Pours pale yellow with thinhead. Aroma of yeast, sour apples, sugar and spring flowers. Mildly sweet, gently dry and pleasantly bitter brew. Not as simple as most helles arround here. Reminded me how lager beer should taste like - as I remembere them to be 15 years ago. Medium bodied for its type. Pleasant carbonation and a slightly rough texture. Definitely one of the positive rediscoveries this month.

Very light straw-yellow, almost green. Thick long-lasting head. Smell is yeasty, some hops, cloves, spice. Taste is just a little sweet with honey and flower notes. Soft body, touch of hops, yeasty finish.

ttoadee (787) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pale yellow pour, big white head. Nose is malt, very lightly kilned, hint flowers. Bittersweet. Middle is crisp apple and bread, medium mouthfeel. Finish is dry and carbonated. Not bad.
