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.”

Coloração bem clara, passa ideia de uma cerveja leve, mas surpreende no paladar. Bem maltada, com aroma floral e persistente dulçor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (1160) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle. A- Grains, corn, A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Corn, grains, malty. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, bland finish. O- I’m sure this will offend some, but I’d just as well be drinking a Coors Light as this would seem about the same to me in a blind test. Boring, bland, and full of all the things I wouldn’t want in a beer.

jamaty (1545) - 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 (155) - 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.

Wombata (567) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle from The Beer Shoppe, Yakima. Aroma: Floral, grain, bread, yeast, light lemon and earthy, floral hops Palate: Soft mouth feel and soft bittering. Flavor: Grain, light bread, yeast, citrus. Comment: Lovely styled lager without sharp bitterness. Subtle aromas and flavors.
