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.”

Ratman197 (14664) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2006
500 ml bottle poured a clear bright yellow with a small white head. Aromas of bread dough, yeast, and some fruity notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of citrus, honey, bread and yeast with a crisp sweet finish.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2006
500ml Bottle into glass. Pours a a bright, thin yellow with a foamy white head that sticks around for a bit. The aroma fainitly gives a lemony citrus smell, while also a hint of yeast. The flavor comes off very rich in malt and yeasty flavors with a sweet hint of honey mixed in there somewhere. Hops are just barely involved, while also a small hint of fruit near the mildly bitter finish. Another great Ayinger brew!

DuffMan (10267) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Pale golden yellow, dense white pad leaving lots of lace. Faintly lemony aroma, sweet. Rich malt palate, vaguely fruity with a pleasant bitter finish. Tasty and drinkable.

thegreenrooster (4364) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2006
Pour is a bright yellow lemonaid lookalike. Aroma is bready and yeasty. Flavor is dusty and malty. Hops are in there somewhere but don’t stand out. Overall pretty tasty for a lager and prob one of the better helles i have had.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - APR 13, 2006
Nice malty and bready aroma follows a pour that is a light clear yellowish golden. The head is of decent size but short lasting. The malty flavor comes through at the forefront along with a hoppish finish on the palate.

3.4
TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2006
malty bread aroma, floral notes. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow, thin head. Flavour is light and crisp, grassy. Finish is clean. Light bitter finish. Nice summer drinking beer.

MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 10, 2006
(bottle from joss – thanks !) Clear golden colour with a fluffy stable white head with nice lace. Slightly dusty and moderately sweet bready aroma with hay, floral hops in the background and a touch of honey. Balanced sweetbitter flavour, medium body, well carbonated slightly crispy mouthfeel. Malty and grainy start with balanced hops; dry and gentle bitter lasting finish with distinctive but not intrusive hoppiness. Very good and subtle Helles, fits perfectly to accompany (not only) a Bavarian meal.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2006 25 oz. bottle into glass. Thick head, but most impressesd with the taste and long, strong finish.

3.5
winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Poured a pale golden with a light fluffy white head. This bear is all about malt. A light sweetness with a full malt body. Not much hops going on here, but not needed. This beer is not cloyingly sweet, it has a nice refreshing quality to it. When held up to light, I can see light specks in the beer as if wheat was used. MIght explain the crisp nature with such small amounts of hops.

pivnizub (10563) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2006
Bottle (donated by joss): Pale golden, huge fluffy white head, rather quickly diminishing; sweetish-grainy nose; sweet and distinctive bitter flavour; shorter sweet and well hopped finish. Pleasant, but not a "century-brew" !
