COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

Un-impressive for the most part. For some reason i think if you got this in a keg - even die hard Bud only drinkers would like it. Not that im comparing this to Bud, because this is way better.

Pours clear pale yellow with medium white head. Nose is slightly fruity. Aromas are sweet malts and grass. Average carbonation, light body. Short grassy finish. Don’t get the wow factor here...

JRisWasted (10) - La Palma, California, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Pours a golden yellowish color with incredible fluffy head. Grassy, herbal, spicy aromas come through. Taste follows the aroma closely. Sweet biscuit followed by the nice herbal bitterness. This one does an excellent job of maintaining head throughout. Great helles lager.

Cristobal37 (660) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 21, 2016
Golden slightly hazy. Really sweet helles. Sugary like honey, malty beer. Nice table beer. No bitterness, really sweet and smooth. Nice but I kinda like when these kinds of beers have a slight bitterness in the finish. This one is all about malts.

tekstr1der (340) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2016
Pours near-clear light golden with a lasting, clingy pillow of whitest head lacing the glass nicely. Aroma is nice with light honey, bread/biscuit and slight grass. Flavor is similarly pleasant - malty and semisweet bread dominate with only a touch of hop to balance. Delicious, and best lager I’ve had.

Bottle, thanks Tuomas. Pours a dark yellow with a good, white head. Aroma is strawy, some hay, grass. Taste follows along the same lines, strong grain.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2016 I bought this beer at the Orterer Getränk Markt in Munich. It is a classical one. The color is yellow lager, thin white foam, average carbonation. The taste in the mouth is really malty, sweet malt, few hop, well-balanced. I drank it again on the moutains in the Valais and it is a really refreshing beer and the final note of malt in the mouth is well balanced, great for the style.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo ma spora i naprawdę bardzo, bardzo stabilna piane, niemal złocisty kolor, spore nagazowanie, delikatny slodowy smak z lekka goryczka. W zapachu wyczulem cos co mnie zdziwilo kojarzylo mi się z puchem gęsim?? nie wiem czemu takie skojerzenia mi naszly. Piwo naprawdę w swoim gatunku wypada bardzo dobrze

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.
