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.”

Draft on tap at Bavarian Lodge (Lisle, IL). Pours a transparent lively golden straw, well carbonated with a decent foamy offwhite head that laces pretty well. Aromas are a light noble hop aroma, florals and fresh cut grass with a touch of spice, cereal malts and a mellow sweetness, grains. Initial is a fuller Helles feel with cereal malts and grain, a decent noble hop bittering, florals and freshcut grass, a faint spiciness in the finish which coats a bit. A light and easy drinker with fuller flavors for the style and a lovely flavor profile, balanced and easy drinking. Bready malts, grassy hops, and a fuller body for the style. Tasty and refreshing.

0.5l bottle. Golden color with white head. Aroma is malty and herbal. Taste is sweet with light bitterness. Medium body and average to lively carbonation. Overall it’s good beer, but it’s somehow one-dimensional.

Pint 9 bottle shared. Poured a bright yellow with white foamy head. Lacing disappears quickly. Aroma is mild bready malt and honey. The flavor is bright and crisp and flavorful. Nice malt with honey notes. Excellent example of the style. You could drink a lot of this.

KyotoLefty (7192) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 2, 2015
Von Holzfass at the Trunk in Munich. Creamy malt nose, bready, light hops. Lovely palate, full and smooth, low carbonation. Creamy biscuit sweetness, light lemon and orange. A bit sweet but well put together. The difference between the bottom of one barrel and the top of another was quite interesting and evident.

ScottWallace82 (80) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle into a glass. Pleasant straw gold color with a thick white head. Very little aroma. Good pilsner flavor with a crisp finish. No off-flavors to speak of.

On tap. Clear straw yellow with one finger head. Malty aroma, nothing too much. Very easy drinking, malty and a little sweet.

Pours yellow golden from bottle with generous white head. Aroma is subtle but includes honey and malt. Very malty with noticeable sweetness up front and nearly absent hoppy bitterness on the back end. Is that cinnamon? Mouthfeel is light, low carbonation, appropriate for style. Overall superb beer, very balanced and sweet though not for hop lovers.

Very light piss yellow pour with low white soapy head. Nose is honey and red hots ( corn syrup and simple fake cinnamon. Light and drinkable and no spice. Taste all red hots minus the heat and honey. Weird that it tastes like cinnamon candy with not common spice. Interesting

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. :)
