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.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2010
Pours dark copper to brown, almost no head. Taste is malty, sweet, some caramel and a moderated herbal hoppiness in the finish. Quite light and restrained but pleasant enough.

martjoobolut (356) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2014
Tap @ Drink Baar as Union Lager. Pours copper with white head. The head stays. Aroma is caramel, malt, metallic, and cherries. Taste is malt, caramel, metallic, watery, mild bitterness and sweetness. Taste gets better as it warms up. Overall: this must be one of the most non-offending beers I have ever tasted, it is very easy to drink.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 9, 2007
Draft at Brew Wharf. Weak aroma of caramel. Brown/amber color with very little head. Caramel flavors, overly sweet. The mouthfeel was over carbonated. An ok, but not a great beer.

Satyroneto (60) - - MAR 10, 2014
Cor âmbar, cristalina, com espuma quase branca de média formação e baixa persistência; sem lacing. Aroma de malte (pão); Sabor de início de biscoito evoluindo para um final de leve amargor e picardia ainda mais leve; retrogosto de adstringência leve; Corpo leve e média carbonatação; Tb um lixo! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very tasty beer. Perfect for drinking in the summer while it’s cold. Appearance is a dark orange, although it is very refreshing
