BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Privatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer KG / Brauerei Aying
Germany
ayinger-bier.de

Style: European Export / Dortmunder

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / 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.”

Clear light yellow color with World Class white cap and lacing.

Aroma of mild malt with floral, spicy hops.

Taste on entry is mildly malty with hops arriving early and staying for the duration. Conceptually this is a European Lager brewed on the milder side yet nicely hopped in a clean, bittering way. A rich nuttiness emerges in the aftertastes and I get nothing but goodness from this cup.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

A very pleasing traditional Lager with Dortmunder style hopping that comes across as floral and spicy with a definite bitter kick at the finish. Well, a kick in the tasting sense, physically it's more of a slight nudge.

This is a typical Bavarian lager with a little too much bitterness in the end which is unfortunate for the drinkability. This is probably a bit too much hopped for a Helles and a little too much alcohol. not bad though.

Unlike other reviewers, my brew poured a pale hazy yellow, certainly not crystal. One finger white head with lots of lacing. Aroma was almost non-existent herbs and grass. Initial taste of grass, corn, and malt followed by juicy grass, malt, biscuit tastes. The feel is crisp with a light to moderate body and carbonation. This has a very refreshing taste and feel. Very enjoyable!
