2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml can served in a pint glass. Pale gold, perfectly clear, with an average frothy head which dissipated quickly. Grainy, metallic and slightly malty nose. Perhaps some light wet hay and grass in the far background. Mild bitterness upfront, quite artificial tasting, followed by a grainy, malty and slightly lactic sweetness. Light paper/cardboard notes in the aftertaste. Average carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Not really offensive, but honestly it’s just a new country tick.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden like apple juice, quickly disappearing irregular white head. An aroma that smells sweet and instantly odder than I normally expect--a little fruity like it could be interesting (vaguely Belgian) and a little artificial/chemical. Nothing so promising about the flavor, which has a hint of astringency after some unremarkable and thin flavors disintegrate. Not very good. Cool can for the EuroBasket 2013 competition in Slovenia, but you can’t judge a beer by its can.

Smell of straw, sugar. Pale golden colour, white consistent crown. Aroma of hay, starch, malt. I suppose not noticing metal or rubber here is a plus. Medium sweet, medium carbon.

Good beer, with a good balance of sweetness and bitterness and a little smoke aroma. Altough a bit thick.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2015 A night out almost always includes a beer, this time Union.
It comes with a clear, golden color and a semi-generous white head that settles down relatively fast. The aroma is mostly grainy and malty, perhaps slight smell of hops (although somewhat dusty). The taste is nothing special: sweet at first, followed by a grainy body and finishing with a nicely bitter finish. But don’t let it stay out too long, because if not ice cold, the bitterness becomes slightly unpleasant. A nice, average beer for everyday’s drink.
