... 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°

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.

Near-nonexistent aroma, good thick foamy head, astringent grass-malt taste. Meh but drinkable PL from the region, and another check on the list, basically. (Note; not brewed in Schwechat but in Union’s other facility in Linz)

In my opinion, it is not the best Austrian beer. One good point is the smelling at the noise:malty. The color is a classical yellow lager, carbonation is a bit low for a lager and watery. We can notice the malt but there is no hop and the taste in the mouth is weak. It is the typical beer for the gardeners like me during a hot summer.

Bottle 500ml @ Bus to Sölden
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, bread, caramel and hint of hay. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long bready and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
