... 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°

pkbites (938) - 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 (9851) - 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

pivnizub (10563) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 20, 2012
Can: Nearly clear, greenish-golden coloured, small and stable bleached loose head, watery grainy-metallic nose; light sweet-bitter flavour; metallic and vegetabley finish with a slight alcohol-burn in the aftertaste. Tu felix austria nube…

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...

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 27, 2011
.5l can from Vienna grocery store. Pours a clear gold color with fine bubbles and lasting white head. Light body with slight hop flavor up front, Interesting hop over malt flavor balance. Clean finish. OK beer.

Henti (244) - Dunaszekcső, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2011
Can and bottle. Had it in Austria, a few months ago. Poured golden colour, with a medium white head. Nice, but not so characteristic aroma. decent body. Good for everydays.

Borup (14270) - Albertslund, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2011
Can. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops and with a bitter finish.

Psytron (2238) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
Malty. (This beer rating was imported from FB and unfortunately lacks any further comments.)

ganache (5848) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2011
From the can on 6 June 2011, best by 02.2012. Sweet, lightly corny nose, touch of malt, a little dust. sickly pale yellow body with a dish soap head. Surprisingly malty taste with a little harsh grain grit and mild astringency almost on par with the mild bittersweetness. Resolves to a nice bready aftertaste but shortly thereafter relapses. Not the cleanest feel, a touch of industry and dirt in with the medium, soft feel. Pass on this one.
