... 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°

1.5l PET bottle. Pours a thin head. Colour is light gold. Aroma is of pine and light citrus. Taste is rather oily with a thin body and a heavy bitterness. Carbonation medium. Finish is long and sour. Very dull. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33 l twist-off bottle, Különleges Sörök Boltja, Budapest.
Pale yellow appearance, small lacing white head. Malt, sourish yeast and some herbal hops in the aroma. Easy drinkable one with some sweet malt, light carbonation, easy grassy-herbal hops. Not bad, not good, in the middle of the style.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 5, 2012
Appears like a standard Eurolager with a golden body and a voluminous fluffy white head. Aromas of coppery malt and metallic hops. I wasn’t expecting the world from this beer and duly, the beer delivered the minimum flavour it was designed to give. A good afternoon beer if you don’t fancy seeing in the evening.

pkbites (858) - 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.

MoritzF (9286) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 30, 2012
(can) Slightly unclear, pale golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Slightly grainy and mashy malty nose. Slightly bitter flavour, quite slim bodied with an almost fizzy carbonation. 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
