Ayinger Jahrhundert Bier

The last beer from my run of beers that I haven’t had before. For some reason, I tend to ignore German beers, and I don’t know why. Almost every time that I have one, I really enjoy them. I have to start forcing myself to get out of my “hoppy” comfort zone. This beer is a dortmunder/export lager, which should be a pale golden beer that is crisp with some biscuity malts. Let’s pop it open.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: Dortmunder/Export Lager

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “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.'”

Random: The Rangers look nasty. Darvish is absolutely sick and the rest of their lineup is really impressive. I think they may be one of the nastier teams in the American League. I love watching their games.

This brew poured with a three finger white head that was incredibly thick and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy golden color with significant visible carbonation visible through the cloudiness. The nose was…interesting. There was a floral characteristic to it with pronounced biscuit. The taste was almost exactly what was on the nose. It had the interesting floral characteristic and biscuit. After a few sips, I couldn’t figure out if I liked it or not. It was definitely weird. The body was on the thicker side with moderate carbonation. The finish lingered with the floral notes. Although the brew was definitely different, I’m not sure that I liked it. I wouldn’t rush back to have it again.
