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.”

A really, really nice Bavarian lager. Has one of the best mouth-feels for a lager. Dry but not parching. I think the breadiness is key for this style.

corkyrory66 (2416) - BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2018
Dortmunder de 5,5 % abv en format 50 cl. Mon exemplaire était à 1 mois avant sa date. Couleur jaune très pâle, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, partout, vives. Mousse blanche, épaisse, structure plus ferme en haut, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de beau malt, houblon, pointe de genièvre. 1ère bouche souple, à la belle entame fine, précise. Arrière-bouche à l'amertume un rien fleurie. 2ème très belle bouche, au grand équilibre. Arrière-bouche avec fleurs et petites épices. 3ème équilibrée, avec de belles saveurs. Arrière-bouche légèrement épicée. La longueur ne peut tenir ce bon rythme, elle est moins harmonieuse et l'ensemble est plus faible. Jambes lisses, longues. Levure fine, belle ligne. Alcool correct pour le genre, mais il peine largement sur la longueur. Finale faible. CONCLUSION : si Ayinger ne peut faire une grande dormunder, personne n'y arrivera. Un style donc à abandonner, en tout cas pendant un siècle … après on verra !

Pours clear golden with thick, foamy, durable head. Aroma is caramel, honey and floral. Taste is sweet caramel and light citrus, warming to a floral, zesty spice. Finish is ultra-smooth and slightly sweet. A really easy drinking lager. Very nice.

Nische (2668) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2018
Bottle from SinH4, many thanks! Pours yellow with a creamy, white head. Fresh grass, some hay, floral hops and a bit of grain. Highly drinkable and great mouthfeel.

MaltoseForever2 (11) - Traben-Trarbach, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2017
Half litre bottle from local store. Not much of an aroma, hints (no more than hints) of cereal, spruce, leather, raisin, soy sauce; looks like a lightweight: pale, clear, white foam; but this has plenty of good taste and at 5.5% packs a reasonable punch. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness; full body, creamy, average carbonation; after taste at first seemed minimal but then a lasting taste at the back of the mouth drifts in. This is a very drinkable bottle of beer that would sit well in the pumps of a good pub.

adamnase (1000) - Kronoby, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Pietarsaari. Pours yellowish coloured with an mediumsized white head, lacing. Aroma is sweet grassyness along with a bit bready hints. Flavour is bready, earthy, slightly acidic hoppy and caramellish.

Daboch (250) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 29, 2017
Złoto żółte piwo z ładną białą pianą. Aromat głównie słodowy, trochę miodu. W smaku podobnie dominują akcenty słodowe, w tle lekka goryczka, finisz wytrawny. Fajne piwo

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2017
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Grass and grain, light sweetness faint yeasty spice. Mild hops. Simple, but nicely done.

FireGlider (717) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 30, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 On tap at Ayingers Speis & Trank, Munich. Clear color with big white head. Floral and hay aroma with light malt notes in aftertaste. Light bitter, quite pleasant.
