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.

Christian (12885) - 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.

kevnic2008 (11359) - 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.

shrubber85 (10675) - 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).

gnoff (9569) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2007
(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.

3fourths (9137) - 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.
