COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
330ml bottles and Keg. Formerly known as Meantime Vienna. Also includes Cascade hops as well as those mentioned below.
100 years ago Pilseners, Müncheners and Viennese lagers formed a trio of major lager styles brewed in central Europe. Gradually the lighter Pilseners swept all before them and Vienna style beers fell into an undeserved decline.
Traditional Bavarian Perle and Spalter hops and delicately coloured malts produce a deep copper coloured beer with a firm fruity caramel aroma, a smooth complex malt character and a long crisp clean finish. This beer is slow fermented and cold-matured over long periods to ensure perfect balance and gentle natural carbonation. Union goes with bread and wheat based foods such as pizza and pasta or more mid-weight dishes like duck or noodle stir-fry.

Bottled 330ml (BZ, no BB found)
Deep ruby color, decent beige head. Cardboardish, a bit vegetably aroma with light caramelly notes. Light to medium-bodied. Light malty-nutty flavor with light hoppy finish. Bready, slightly caramelly, Easy going amber lager, probably works best with greasy food.

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2011
330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika. ABV is 4.9%. Amber colour, large head, slightly off-white. Strong sweetish aroma of malts and stale orange marmalade. The flavour is not too sweet, biscuity and hoppy notes, hints of caramel and some fruit. Not too bad, but I think Meantime preferably should stick to ales.

Bottle 33cl, a clear amber beer with good creamy head. Nose is very malty, toasted with acrid notes. Aroma is caramel like, dry, malty, quite hopy for the style, lot of vienna malt a bit acrid notes, not bad but less round to be really great.
