... 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°

Papsoe (25063) - 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

Canned. Pale yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is hops and saltwater. Flavour is saltwater and grassy hops, in a not too good mix. Cheap-o supermarket beer most likely.

Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Das Bier ist leicht herb, eher fällt aber der ebenfalls nur leichte Hopfen Geschmack auf. Zum Ende hin ein leichter Malzhauch, wiederrum nur leicht. Soll heißen: Das ganze Bier ist sehr (zu) mild, dafür allerdings erfrischend. Test vom 4.9.2006, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 6,6,6,6,8,6 - 6,10

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2009
Can. A clear, slightly pale golden beer with a finger-thick white head. Nice lacings. Mostly grainy nose, but supported by a pleasant fruity hoppyness. Some hay too. The flavor follows the same pattern, with pale malts up front, soon followed by fruits and some hay. Quite dry, but some residual sugars with a balancing bitterness. Thin to medium body. The finish gives a sweet impression and rounds of with a medium lenght bitterness. Far from impressing, but I guess it would quench the thirst easily in the summer heat. (090111)
