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.

Davin (48) - Vermont, USA - APR 25, 2008
Very smooth and drinkable beer. Has a mineral and yeast aroma. Small amount of yeast spiciness. The best things about this beer are the jacked up body and the bread/malt flavor. A little too sweet to be a thirst quencher beer.

Kampfar (227) - Osnabrck, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017
From 0.5 L bottle; pours clear, yellow with a white head. Aroma malty with light bread and slightly hoppy with grassy hints. Taste is light bread, malty with a low bitterness. Light to medium body, average carbonation. OK, for me thats an average Helles.

vinivini (2052) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 9, 2017
Brilliant gold pouring. Perfect white head. Malty aroma. Additional spicy hop. Very clean. Medium body. Solid malts dominate the taste. These malts are noble. Low to light bitterness. This is the prove that a good beer is not obligatory a hoppy beer.

Grifo en 99Cervezas. Precioso color dorado brillante, perfectamente transparente. Espuma blanca extraordinariamente cremosa y an ms extraordinariamente persistente, de burbuja media, que deja un bonito encaje de Bruselas. Fantstica carbonatacin, con multitud de hilos de burbujas subiendo a la superficie incluso muchos minutos despus de haberla servido. Inmejorable a la vista. De intensidad media en nariz, da notas suaves de pltano y de manzana (tipo Reineta). Tambin notas de malta y de pan blanco fresco, as como notas de frescor. Complejidad media, aunque sorprendente para ser una Lager. De entre los sabores bsicos destaca el dulce, bastante suave y en absoluto empalagoso. Es un dulce como de malta o de pan blanco. De fondo se deja sentir el amargo, dando un buen equilibrio al dulce preponderante. En el retro-gusto vienen de nuevo las notas de pltano (muy suaves, insisto) y manzana. A pesar de que el aspecto y el aroma sugieren una cerveza ligera en boca, es ms bien de peso medio, quiz por la sensacin acumulada que el dulce deja en la lengua. Textura vivaz y carcter refrescante. Persistencia muy considerable para ser una Lager. Una cerveza muy agradable de beber por su aspecto, aroma y textura en boca. Muy refrescante e indudablemente de trago largo. Especialmente recomendable para aquellos que se inician en el mundo de la cerveza artesana, as como para los veteranos con gusto por la buena cerveza alemana. Para repetir.

gripweed57 (2134) - 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 (531) - 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.
