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: MAR 27, 2006 25 oz. bottle into glass. Thick head, but most impressesd with the taste and long, strong finish.

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.

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" !

Yellow colour with a nice creamy white head. Aroma and taste of malts and hops. Medium body. Dry finish.

Draugt in ceramic mug at Ayinger Speiss und Trank. Creamy white mostly lasting head. Difficult to rate colour. Pleasent but week aroma. Very nice hoppy flavor. Long finish and creamy palae. I like this beer.

This brew completely baffled me. This is supposed to be a Dortmunder export,the aroma was banana, yeasty estery, and bubble gum,small head, and a very pale yellow color. The taste was the same profile as the aroma. It was like 99% of the ingredients here were the same as thier very famous weiss beers. I actually liked it , but now I’m confused about the Dortmunder style

Bottle. Poured a very pale foggy yellow with a thick and frothy white head that left some lacing. A sweet aroma, wheaty dough and some faint hoppiness. Tastes sweet at first and finishes with a tartness that has very little lingering bitterness. Very faintly sour with malty richness dominating throughout. Not very complex but refreshing smooth crisp lightly carbonated feel. A nice summer drinker.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Poured from bottle into shaker glass. I was a little disappointed in this one. Off-white head, moderate retention and a straw colored body. Aroma was of grainy cereal-like malt. The flavor produced some crisp grassy hops, but finished metallic. Body was thin.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Nothing that special here. Light yellow color, generic pilsner-esque taste with a mild hoppy bite. Not a bad beer, but in no way worth the price of admission, especially considering the other beers Ayinger offers.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A fluffy head laces complacently over the lightly fogged-up sunrays.
-A gentle aroma of doughy malts is subtle and unidimensional.
-Bready, doughy malts take a lot of room in the flavor profile.
-The mouthfeel is well-rounded by these malts, and is carbonated by fat but spaced bubbles.

What if you dig deeper?
-The aftertaste is too shy for my tastes.
-Feeble citrus fruit are dissolved within the nourishing doughy malt sweetness.
-Blades of straw and drops of milk are found when nitpicking.
-Immensely drinkable while giving the feeling of being fed, but too one-directional for my pleasure. It’s quality cannot be avoided though.

Bottle; no date.
