Seit Jahrzehnten wird an den Wiener Würstelständen davon gesprochen. Und jetzt gibt’s das Ottakringer "16er-Blech" wirklich und leibhaftig. Gebraut wird das original "16er" (aus dem 16. Bezirk) nach alter Wiener Rezeptur. Vollmundige 5,4 % Alkoholgehalt und süffige 12,8 Prozent Stammwürze wurden ins Blech verpackt, begleitet von einer feinen Karamellnote.

Mild boring easy drinkable lager.
Clear golden color with an ok white head. Moderate intensity in the aroma. A bit sweet actually. Medium body and an average carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. A bit sweet malty and mild herbal flavor.
[Can from a local grocery store in Wien, Austria]

Transferring old Data - This is a slightly above average lager - some grass notes, some caramel, lively carbonation.

kevnic2008 (11414) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2012
Pale golden colour with long white head. It’s hard to establish the aroma. Light body and a bitter finish. I’m not impressed.

Frothmeister (733) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
500ml can. Pours a clear pale yellow, with an off-white head that diminished quickly. The nose is very faint, but notes of malt, straw, apple juice, and a little bit of caramel and metallic hop are evident. The taste is pretty inoffensive, with some sweet malt balanced out with some metallic hops, and grass and straw in the finish. Seriously though, "Blech"? Isn’t that like calling a beer "Ewww"?

Can. A golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread and malt as well as lighter notes of caramel.

shrubber85 (10762) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Can courtesy of ogivlado/doggythedog - thanks guys. Slight sweet berry malt and light grass hops aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Sweet (on the edge of cloying) barley malt and lightly bitter hay hops flavor. Not bad for a pale lager - a favorite of Alfred E. Neuman (for those Mad magazine readers out there).

Cuso (7828) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 8, 2010
Can. Dark golden color with thiny white head .Grainy aroma. Sweet taste with malty tones. Design of can is much better than beer itself.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 28, 2009
0,5 l can, bought in a Billa near Stiegl-Ambulanz, Vienna.
Golden beer with a froathy medium white head what diminishes to a small lacing one. Bready malt, some fruity but sourish bottom-fermentation character, moderated grassy hop. Medium bodied beer with fruity flavor, malt and sourish yeast character, Grassy hop in the finish. Interesting fruity character.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2009
silver bullet can, train rating. so happy to get another rate! i love me some rates. weak lemon and metallic honey malt nose. lively carbonation, some sweetened floral notes resembling belgian yeast, so this comes across somewhat like a bad belgian single or wit... light clove, lemon zest and potpourri. carbonation is high and body is light to medium-light, so it’s actually refreshing thanks to a bit of sweetness. nothing spectacular, mind you, but simple and drinkable. was expecting something godawful from the bumped metal can design.

Bottle 50cl.
Clear medium yellow orange color with a small to average, frothy, good - fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, hay, straw, toasted, dusty, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20090404]
