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.”

A really, really nice Bavarian lager. Has one of the best mouth-feels for a lager. Dry but not parching. I think the breadiness is key for this style.

JorgeLee (1793) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
On tap at Ayinger, Munich, from the wood. Light golden colour, white foam. Soft carbonation. Wonderful stuff, hint of sweetish malt, lovely tantalising hop bitterness, tastes really fresh. Drinks amazingly easily, superb session beer. A toss up between this and the Andechs Hell for beer of trip.

anstei (1229) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Tap at Ayingers am Platzl, from wooden barrel. Balanced and tasty as fuck. I wouldn’t mind drinking more bottom-fermented beer if all of them were juicy, sweet and well done like this. Low carbonation and almost a bit stale, but I don’t mind with this beer. It does everything right. I heard the bottle is a bit weaker, but the wooden barrel is just great.
