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.”

Kampfar (266) - Osnabrück, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017
From 0.5 L bottle; pours clear, yellow with a white head. Aroma malty with light bread and slightly hoppy with grassy hints. Taste is light bread, malty with a low bitterness. Light to medium body, average carbonation. OK, for me that’s an average Helles.

vinivini (2425) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 9, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2017 Brilliant gold pouring. Perfect white head. Malty aroma. Additional spicy hop. Very clean. Medium body. Solid malts dominate the taste. These malts are noble. Low to light bitterness. This is the evidence that a good beer is not obligatory a hoppy beer.

JuanCC (118) - Valencia, SPAIN - MAY 2, 2017
Grifo en 99Cervezas. Precioso color dorado brillante, perfectamente transparente. Espuma blanca extraordinariamente cremosa y aún más extraordinariamente persistente, de burbuja media, que deja un bonito encaje de Bruselas. Fantástica carbonatación, con multitud de hilos de burbujas subiendo a la superficie incluso muchos minutos después de haberla servido. Inmejorable a la vista. De intensidad media en nariz, da notas suaves de plátano y de manzana (tipo Reineta). También notas de malta y de pan blanco fresco, así como notas de frescor. Complejidad media, aunque sorprendente para ser una Lager. De entre los sabores básicos destaca el dulce, bastante suave y en absoluto empalagoso. Es un dulce como de malta o de pan blanco. De fondo se deja sentir el amargo, dando un buen equilibrio al dulce preponderante. En el retro-gusto vienen de nuevo las notas de plátano (muy suaves, insisto) y manzana. A pesar de que el aspecto y el aroma sugieren una cerveza ligera en boca, es más bien de peso medio, quizá por la sensación acumulada que el dulce deja en la lengua. Textura vivaz y carácter refrescante. Persistencia muy considerable para ser una Lager. Una cerveza muy agradable de beber por su aspecto, aroma y textura en boca. Muy refrescante e indudablemente de trago largo. Especialmente recomendable para aquellos que se inician en el mundo de la cerveza artesana, así como para los veteranos con gusto por la buena cerveza alemana. Para repetir.

Iphonephan (6988) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2017
From a 33 cl bottle in Munich. Pours a clear pale old with a massive white head. Aroma of white bread. Flavors of toast. Crisp finish.

gripweed57 (2462) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2017
500 ml bottle. Clear brassy gold color is topped by a firm frothy beige head. Soft honeyish malt aroma has a slightly bready note. The first sip yields more honey like malt flavor with a creamy mouthfeel. Crisp, spicy and clean malt in middle. Grassy hops come through in finish. Smooth and flavorful with a earthy nuance. Very good.

drfabulous (7946) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 22, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours a clean clear yellow and then there is a floral nose, bit of honey, wheat, hop. Nice.

melush (4105) - SPAIN - APR 1, 2017
50cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain. Golden colour with white head. Aroma is wheat, straw, slightly hoppy. Taste is wheat, bread, corn, sweet. Medium to light body, moderate carbonation.

Jabic (589) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Ar: Mild fresh noble hops, mossy, floral, grassy, and a bit waxy; some cracker malt, very delicate; chalk. Ap: Pale yellow and crystal clear; huge white head with amazing retention, airy body, and a beautiful trail of lacing as it slowly subsides. T: Grassy and lightly sweet pils malt up front; fairly clean yeast profile, a tough of pear; low but firm bitterness, with sweet biscuits and saltines; a bit chalky; finish is grassy pils malt and peppery noble hops. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: This is a beautiful lager; great pils malt and noble hop character; fermentation profile is delicate and nuanced; other little aspects really make this beer great, like the perfect level of sweetness and the light chalky note throughout.

Torrefacto (1675) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 25, 2017
Pan, cereal, notas florales y suave sulfuroso. Ligera en boca aunque con textura oleosa y final seco largo.

axl (876) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear golden with tall, two plus fingers, white head. Aroma is white bread, slightly dry malts, light hay, light grass and slightly sweet citrus. Taste is sweet and malty with bread, slightly dry malts, light hay and slight soft grass and citrus bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and soft, light bitter yet sweet, aftertaste.
