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.

Slight hazy gold color with arom of hopcit and honey. Tastes creamy malty, with hopcit, honey, and slight apricot in the finish. Solid palate and good complexity. At this point in my life, I place Ayinger up there in the top 25 brewers of all time.....bar none.

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Lemony-wheat color, golden and hazy with a small white head that reduced quickly to a scummy film. Aroma of ketchup to start: lemony-tomato. Some malts follow, and doughy yeast. Buttery mouthfeel with a sour citrus flavor leading to sweet malts to finish. Gave me a headache. Twice.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Aroma is malty, bready, with an undertone of fresh hops. The appearance is a bright, clear yellow. The flavor is just as the description says: fresh clean malt, bready and earthy, and a little citrus in the finish. An exceptionally crisp lager. The palate is full, and the carbonation is as well, but it is not injected carbonation, its natural, tiny bubbles of CO2 that help the flavor fill your entire mouth. This is a delicious lager that would make an awesone everyday beer, the adjective "clean" being a perfect summation.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
Crystal clear bright gold. Nice white head. Aroma of bread, cookies and fallen leaves. Crisp malty beer like a restrained pilsener. A bit of wet wood in the taste. Foamy on the tongue.

This is my first beer from this catagory ... and I think its ok... but I feel like there is a cardboard aroma and taste. This beer in particular was almost overpoweringly apple/pear flavored/scented. IUt pours a nice straw gold color and with a pretty large, but breif head.

Pours a light slightly hazy yellow color. Aroma is sweet and malty. A little bit of graininess as well. A little spice. Nice malty flavor up front. Has a bit of a yeasty spicy flavor as well.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2005
Gracias Clark! Nicely hazy yet shining golden hue wears a gentle, slowly fading white head, well-laced and gracious. Strong malt nose, slightly grainy, lightly buttery. Big clean malt profile, highly bready. Finish is just dry enough, finely balanced at that, may just be a bit too grainy in its maltiness rather than pure biscuity like I seem to prefer. As malty as it is, Im hard-pressed to name anything besides "light/ floral aspects, "light" herbal tones, "light" earthiness etc. Still, surprisingly crisp for a beer that full and eminently drinkable. Good stuff.
