Privat Brauerei Franz Inselkammer Ayinger Jahrhundert Bier (5.5%)

It’s Saturday lunchtime and for me that means a cold bottle of, generally, lagered beer.
And after trying Celebrator from this brewery the other day I’ve been looking forward to opening this.
And what a lovely fresh beer it is.
Positively bursting with orchard fruit and spice aromas, Jahrhundert Bier is a shining sunny straw coloured lager.
I’m drinking it whilst finishing off the kids’ lunch of homemade salmon fish fingers and the clear, clean crispness cuts through the fish beautifully.
A big kick of All Spice laced honey starts things off, sweet and warming and pricked with crackiling spices and a good pinch of sea salt.
There’s also a rather good chest warming alcohol sitting deep down in the middle of this beer, which is a pleasant surprise from a beer of this type.
The hops here are pretty upfront with big daisy petal, mown lawn pithiness, like sucking grass (no, not that kind of grass, man), alongside a good twist of lemon, some rustic apple juice, and then a very long and satisfyingly sharp and dry finish.
