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.

11.2 oz bottle: Aroma is slightly malty. Not an overwelming smell. Pours golden with a white head. Taste is a bit higher carbonation than Id like, with a good mouth feel. Not what Id expect from a 100 year beer. That said, it has a decently fruity if not slightly malty flavor. Overall not bad.

gripweed57 (1773) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2017
500 ml bottle. Clear brassy gold color is topped by a firm frothy beige head. Soft honeyish malt aroma has a slightly bready note. The first sip yields more honey like malt flavor with a creamy mouthfeel. Crisp, spicy and clean malt in middle. Grassy hops come through in finish. Smooth and flavorful with a earthy nuance. Very good.

Jabic (500) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Ar: Mild fresh noble hops, mossy, floral, grassy, and a bit waxy; some cracker malt, very delicate; chalk. Ap: Pale yellow and crystal clear; huge white head with amazing retention, airy body, and a beautiful trail of lacing as it slowly subsides. T: Grassy and lightly sweet pils malt up front; fairly clean yeast profile, a tough of pear; low but firm bitterness, with sweet biscuits and saltines; a bit chalky; finish is grassy pils malt and peppery noble hops. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: This is a beautiful lager; great pils malt and noble hop character; fermentation profile is delicate and nuanced; other little aspects really make this beer great, like the perfect level of sweetness and the light chalky note throughout.

kepano (277) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Clear gold color with a frothy head that sticks. This smells like nothing Ive had before. It starts with a bright, sweet bouquet of spring flowers, honeysuckle, rose, lavender, and herbaceous notes including thyme and bay leaf. Wet hay and dark honey lend contrast to the fresh floral nose. The first sip is mineral with sharp, tingly carbonation a bright bitter hit of floral hops. A burst of wildflowers and herbs on the tongue that ends on a delicious long aftertaste of malt and honey. Not exactly my cup of tea but I love the unique and refreshing qualities of this brew.

Are u guys nuts this is an epic beer! Simply brilliant with a sweet and soft malty taste that is rounded up by a crispy fizz. Easy to drink yet very tasty. This is as good as a helles or lagerbeer gets.
