... 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.

Can with a big thanks to Alex. Pours out a crisp light straw topped with a long lasting white head. Nose is grain grass and sweet malt. Taste is as the nose sweet and grains.

Nice hops/grain aroma. Crisp flavor - some bitterness and only slight malt flavor. Like most Austrian brews, not too strong - a good ski-brew.

armando629 (2447) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 17, 2012
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.

tkrjukoff (4169) - SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2010
Can 500 ml. Pours clear pale golden with shortlived white head. Fruity, acidy dry aroma almodt like champagne. Well carbonated. Slightly honey sweet, malty and hoppy flavor. Acidy crisp on palate. Finishes first with sweet perry turning into acidy bitter hoppy.

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.

Can, Bottle. Pale golden color, nice white head, some hoppy aroma and low bitterness. Cerveja dourada com boa espuma, aroma com nota de lúpulo e baixo amargor.

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...
