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.

Marko (4989) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 27, 2008
0.5ll can brought from Austria by a friend (thanks Ivana!)
Slightly darker golden body, thick medium sized white head that went away at a medium pace. Grainy malt in the nose, light honey. Malty taste, grainy and fruity (going orange), kinda likable, at least to me. Not much hop, very light lemony acidity. I usually like pale lagers that taste like this but this isn’t one of the more quality specimens. Ok enough!

Canned(500ml). -On gas station near Salzburg. Golden coloured, small airy white head that went away fast leaving no lace, grainy lemony nose. Slightly malty, grainy and grassy with notes of cardboard. Short bitterish finish, low carbonation.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 10, 2008
08/08 Directly from a 0.5 l can on a gas station near Wien. Famous boring pale lager aroma with even some corn. Flavor isn’t much better, first impression is nothing but watery, slightly sweet in it with even some wood. Somehow oily on palate, with lot of carbonation. Strange, but it had a bit bitter finish. Everything here is completely drinkable, but it’s so boring and pretty tasteless I couldn’t enjoy it anyhow.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 29, 2008
Can 500 ml
Appearance: Standard pale gold with its average mid white head. 3-
Nose lts with its unusual nutty, woody character.
Flavor/Palate : Cut above carbonation but still drinkable. Unusual aroma carried trough. Malts with its nutty accents. Neat brew with funky can suggesting poor brew.

Christian (12955) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2008
Yellow with a lasting white head. Grain and grass aroma with a note of cooked vegetables. Sweet, bready malt flavour, thin, could use some hops.

(50 cl can at a hotel outside of Vienna) Clear pale golden color, fluffy white head. Sweet acidic and vegetable scent topped with apples. Grainy malty taste, also corn and a harsh bitterness. Thin mouthfeel, strange bitterness.
