COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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!

armando629 (2404) - 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.

heavy (2116) - 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.

Frothmeister (544) - 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"?
