COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
... 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.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2006
Canned, bought in Vienna. On the sweet side. Malty, but with a pricly dry finish. Not well balanced.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pilsener golden with a nice, white head - that collapses rather fast though. Weak aroma of malt. Very thin-bodied and watery with some sweet malt and a rather crude bitterness in the finish. Some notes of cardboard. 260805

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2005
Can (BB 11/2005)
Typical lager-outlook: pale yellow, decent white head. Light nose: rubber and malts. Clean malty beer with some sweetness and bitterness but totally uninteresting. Propably good served ice cold in the hot summer day.

Dorqui (2094) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 22, 2004
Discreet with a yellow color gold. Scent pleasant but deprives of characteristics of particular relief.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 20, 2004
In the 0.5L bottle. Was ist ein wiglwogl? Thanks to Lyle for bringing this back to me from Vienna. Highly carbonated yellow pour with a moderate poofy white head. Nice lacing in a lager schooner. Not quite the quality of the Bavarian lagers, but a very drinkable potion with mild wheat (?) flavor and possibly hersbrucker hops. Little bit of a sweet palate. It’ll do in a pinch.

jde123 (763) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Golden in color, pours with a lacey white head, aroma is sour and pungent lots of grain. The flavor is slightly bitter, this seems to weaken throughout the experience. Aftertaste is slightly metallic, Overall this is a slightly bad beer.

shrubber85 (7381) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Nice hops/grain aroma. Crisp flavor - some bitterness and only slight malt flavor. Like most Austrian brews, not too strong - a good ski-brew.

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2004
Clear-gold; slim white head. Vanilla, sweet grain, faint hoparoma in the nose. First grain, then hopbitter, but very metallic. Bitter fades somewhat, leaving sticky sweet mouthfeel. Rest of texture is empty. Metallic taint remains in the aftertaste. Bweugh. Swill.
