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.”

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Pours a surprisingly pale hazy straw yellow. A good solid head of white foam but no lacing. Mild malty and somewhat floral aroma. Surprisingly malty flavor. Heck, you could call it bold. Nice follow up of tangy and spicy hops keeps the maltiness in balance. Smooth full body, nicely carbonated. This beer stays nice, natural, full, and clean just where a Beck’s runs out of gas.

Doesn’t smell good at all, but I needed to raise that category’s score because otherwise it wouldn’t get it’s full score, since it is very tasty. Looks nice. The head is also not tasty, but the beer itself is one worth enjoying. Very smooth.

Very nice, indeed. One can definately taste the ’Becks’ in it. A little watered down for my taste, however, it still maintains a fuller bodied balance. Nothing too special here, but worth a once over.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy bright yellow with a fair white head. The aroma is zest, some sweet sugary notes, and slight corn. The flavor is zest with lots of fruity sweetness, kinda like the syrup in canned pears. There is some hay in there, and a slightly floral finish with a faintly dry aftertaste.

homosaur (7) - USA - DEC 3, 2006 does not count
Ayinger is one of the most undercarried brands in the United States. The Jahrhundert is my favorite of all their brews. Mild golden brew with silky smooth aftertaste. I wish I could find this more often.

Mirage52 (147) - New Market, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2006
From the bottle at Brewer’s Art in Baltimore, MD. Poured from the bottle a light golden color, not much different than many mass produced beers. But the difference was in the taste. Upfront the taste is sweet and buttery, almost like buttered toast, and the finish contains a mild bitterness that equals out the sweetness. Damn good Helles.

3.8
Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 17, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 Clear golden colur, very big head. The aroma and flavour are on the malty side, with sweet notes o bread, but the hop bitterness gives a good balance. Good body.

Bottle. Actually not bad. This beer looks like honey in a glass with a creamy, pearly white head. Very natural / hefen flavor without the the traditional hefen bite. I thought this beer to be very smooth and balanced. Sweet, earthy flavor. Easy finish. Give this one a try. Ayinger is making a bid for one my favorite Euro breweries - good stuff.

2.1
nimbleprop (8924) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2006
This beer was not very good. Straw colored orange, slightly malty aroma. Flavor was not appealing, yeasty and strangely smokey. I did not enjoy this as much as some of the other Ayingers.
