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.”

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of bready and toasty malt and some spicy noble hops. Flavor is toasty malt with a light hop bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a clean, dry finish. Great beer, light and flavorful with great drinkability.

jamaty (1433) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 2, 2015
Pajiza, casi limpia, burbujeante. Bonita espuma blanca. Escaso aroma, agradablemente dulce. Entrada agradable, buen punto de gas, que le da un punto picante. Sabor equilibrado y tono seco. Muy bebible. Muy agradable.

Pours clear golden colour with tiny white head. Aroma is weak, with malty - caramel notes and with some hoppy hints of flowers. Flavor is similar: malty sweet, with notes of caramel and with hints of flowers. Finish is slightly bitter and dry. Dody is soft, malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also. Very drinkable beer.

migwell (131) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Poured into a Stella Artois glass. Looks like pee with the slightest retained head, smells like hay and malt. Helles is a style I’ve had a lot of in the past, and this is a fine example. But I rarely drink it these days, preferring stronger and more flavorful ales. Bought this because of good experiences with Ayinger wheat beers, but this is pretty ordinary.

Capa (2358) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Very pale golden with a white head. Slight grass and a light bit of toasted malt in the aroma. Rather thin body. Flavor is similar with a large sweet backbone. Too fruity sweet. Not something I’d get again.

coldbrewky (1521) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2015
.5L bottle. Pale pour yields minimal head. Malt nose. Light upfront with malt and hop profile building in that order. A nice one before much needed sleep beer.
