... recht hat er. Seit 1632 steht Schwechat für Pionierleistungen in der Braukunst. Anton Dreher stellte 1841 das erste untergärige Lagerbier der Braugeschichte her und machte damit das Schwechater Bier weltberühmt.

Das Schwechater Bier ist ein klassisches Lagerbier und Österreichs meistverkauftes Dosenbier. Es ist kristallklar und in der Farbe goldgelb. Im Duft malzaromatisch mit anregender Hopfennase. Im Antrunk präsentiert es sich frisch, harmonisch herb mit zarter Hopfenbittere am Gaumen, langsam ausklingend. 11.5°

ippopotamo36 (1612) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2015
0,5 can courtesy of Lela and Milos, consumed in Serbia. Pours golden clear, white foam which lowers in a blink. Nose: grains, some spicy notes, not that bad but definitely a thin nose. Mouth: bad! Sink water, unpleasantly sweet. Bleh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wässriges Lager mit ein bisschen Reis und Malz im Aroma. Recht einffach zu trinken mit Momenten von Karamell. Wie ein Lager meist so ist, wenn auch die Perlung hier etwas geringen ist. Ganz ok.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2014
Can from local Spar in Austria. The beer pours out in a light golden colour with low head and thin body. Aroma of cheap hops and grass. Taste of hops, bread, hay, straw, malt and old fruits. Metallic finish. Drinkable, yet nothing nice.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Straightforward pilsner with a nice sharp aftertaste and a cheap, yet decent sweetness in the main taste. "Cheap, yet decent" is the overall impression I am left with.

bhensonb (13998) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from Merkur Hoher Markt in Vienna. Pours gold with a fizzy/foamy white head. Aroma seems to have a hint of skunk. Near med body. No skunk in the flavor, but hardly any hop either. Just grainy/bready. Ok, maybe a touch of hop, but it’s far from bitter.

mile (3787) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Can. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light corn and cardboard. Body is light, malty and lightly sweetish, light cardboard. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light sharp metal and alcohol, faint hoppyness. Generic lager with notes of alcohol and metal - not good.
