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.”

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of bready and toasty malt and some spicy noble hops. Flavor is toasty malt with a light hop bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a clean, dry finish. Great beer, light and flavorful with great drinkability.

Dogbrick (12939) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Clear yellow color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of floral hops, malt and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of mild hops, bready malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

17Beer (343) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Malt andyeast smells of sourgrass. Pours a cloudy bubbly pale gold with a bright white head with microscopic bubbles. Light and clean flavored with an astringent finish that sings to why lager beer overtook the world. This is what it’s supposed to be. Crisp and drinkable without being simple or weak.

2.8
Towey1989 (2720) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, some bready malts, slight honey and subtle grassy hops. Taste of grain, bready malts, subtle honey and some grassy hops. Light bodoed and moderate carbonation. A dry, subtly sulphuric, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A good lager, typical German malts with lots of grassy hops. Good.

3.5
YantarCoast (1341) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 3, 2017
500ml bottle from Pinta's in Moscow. Pours clear light yellow with a large white head. Aroma is pale malt, bread, grass. Taste is slightly sweet, malt, dough, followed by light bitterness.

Grumbo (2856) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle from a now unrecalled source. Poured clear golden/yellow with a moderate sized frothy white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, yeast and grass. Medium plus sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, average to soft carbonation.

2.8
Kampfar (252) - Osnabrück, 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 that’s an average Helles.

3.5
vinivini (2266) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 9, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 3, 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 evidence that a good beer is not obligatory a hoppy beer.

JuanCC (110) - Valencia, SPAIN - MAY 2, 2017
Grifo en 99Cervezas. Precioso color dorado brillante, perfectamente transparente. Espuma blanca extraordinariamente cremosa y aún más extraordinariamente persistente, de burbuja media, que deja un bonito encaje de Bruselas. Fantástica carbonatación, con multitud de hilos de burbujas subiendo a la superficie incluso muchos minutos después de haberla servido. Inmejorable a la vista. De intensidad media en nariz, da notas suaves de plátano y de manzana (tipo Reineta). También notas de malta y de pan blanco fresco, así como notas de frescor. Complejidad media, aunque sorprendente para ser una Lager. De entre los sabores básicos 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 plátano (muy suaves, insisto) y manzana. A pesar de que el aspecto y el aroma sugieren una cerveza ligera en boca, es más bien de peso medio, quizá por la sensación acumulada que el dulce deja en la lengua. Textura vivaz y carácter 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, así como para los veteranos con gusto por la buena cerveza alemana. Para repetir.
