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.”

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 The aroma is hopped well with herbal and floral hops. It is also grainy with faint but detectable cardboard and yeast elements. The appearance is nice with a large foamy head and somewhat hazy gold color. The flavor is complex but not with flavors that compliment each other. It has soap, grass, paper, citrus, yeast, cereal, and bitter hops. The palate is average and the aftertaste is bitter citrus. I know this is a quality beer but there is just something about the taste that could be better.

This beer pours a foggy straw color, and leaves a very sticky white lace that sticks to the side of the glass. The appearance is foggy with some golden hues throughout. As I taste this beer the grass, malt, lemon, honey, and the very slightest taste of grapefruit bitterness. The mouthfeel is malty the beer just cleanses the palate with crisp carbonation and the finish is semi-sweet with a honey lemon finish. This is a great style my first time trying it, and one I will go back to.

white beer with a huge creamy head that doesn’t move when i tilt the glass. cereal malts, bread, and a quick sugary citrus finish. mild and light bodied.

balesjas (41) - Huntington Woods, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2006
A nice bitterness that lingers a bit -- a good finish to the beer. Had a nice head that dissipated fairly quickily. Sweet on the attack and the nose, dry on the finish.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Pours cloudy gold with a one-finger white head. Sweet, honeyish aroma, with nutty and malty notes. Some citrus. Flavor is much like the aroma, with more of the citrus. Dry, nutty finish.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Nuts & honey on the nose. Feel like I’m in the park. Not quite translucent pale yellow body. Sophisticated malt flavor, like a eurpean triangle piece of seedy crusty bread. sweet, carbonated, would compliment a good home cooked germanic spring meal perfectly.

demitriustown (1191) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Pours semi cloudy straw color with a foamy white head. Aroma’s of dried fruit, malts, and sugar are all prevalent. Sharp bite, faint hints of lemon, mildly malty, and a texture of plain doughnuts. Palate is clean and watery. Nice Dortmunder nothing over the top, and nothing exceptionally delightful. But decent and worth a try.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - DEC 3, 2005
(500 ml bottle from http://hitimewine.com) This poured a cloudy pale yellow with a rocky white head. Aroma: some hay, sweet maltiness, hint of sour. Sloppy foam lacing. Mouthfeel slightly fizzy. Taste: mild citrus bite, faintly doughy, finishes slightly sour. Not real impressed, wonder if this is an older bottle. My 100th rating - "Jahrhundert"...get it?...clever, huh?!

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Sparkling gold that has a fat head on top. Aroma is both grainy and grassy with sign of malt. Flavor is bitter and organic with light sweet undertone. Has considerable amount of grain in the flavor that adds some character and distinguishes this dortmunder from the rest.
