... 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.

pkbites (774) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Clear yellow pour with grainy nose. Little hops/malt. Some light bitterness but smooth and thirst quenching. Good with food as it doesn’t dominate the pallet. Nothing outstanding but I’d take this over an American macro any time.

Slightly papery malty taste with traces of brewing mash, accompanied by grassy and slightly herbal hops; slim, moderately dry and slightly bitter finish. A bland international Lager. 17.IV.12

Brau-Union. Anton Dreher. Verwaltung gegen Idee. Status Quo gegen Innovation. Tja gegen Aha. Liebl gegen Liebe. Lassen wir das... Tatsächlich vergeht keine Woche, in der dieses Bier nicht irgendwo in Österreich in Aktion ist. Und das mag einen dazu verleiten, es nicht als das zu sehen, was es ist. Als ein gutes, fehlerloses Bier zum alltäglichen Hausgebrauch. Nicht mehr, aber beileibe nicht weniger. Und das ist schon mehr, als man heutzutage gewohnt ist zu verlangen. Der hölzerne (Nach-)Geschmack kann manchmal als störend empfunden werden, dennoch in dieser Kategorie in diesem Land ganz vorne dabei. Middle of the road, aber sehr auf der richtigen Seite...
