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.

Bottle @Haket Göteborg: Clear deep red colour, nice head. Aroma: Malty, fruity,citric nose. Flavor is almost the same, creamy mouth feeling, thin body, and a bit too short fruity finish.

First time I tried this it was quite badly skunked but this one looked a lot better. Classic appearance; darkish brown but with a cola-like clean appearance. Nose shows a nice elegant light chocolate note, maybe a touch of caramel, but definitely not much in the way of hops. Flavours are more more dry, and perhaps there is the mildest astringent hint from some roasted malt. Some bitter chocolate to finish.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2006
Draught, Brew Wharf. Amber beer with a fine carbonation and a tan head. Malty, fruity aroma. Malty taste with some caramel, background fruit and little bitterness. OK.

2.8
kwik-lime (2042) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Nice balance of hops and malt but a somewhat watery palate. Inoffensive but hardly living up to the hype of the rather overpriced cocktail bar I had this in.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2006
Tap @ Greenwich Union: Ruby in colour with a short beige head. Sweetish clean malty notes. Dry biscuits. Ok, but nothing special.

Lunkie (1958) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2008
Sweet malt chocolate aroma. Dark brown colour with good head and lacing thit dissapears. Smooth malt chocolate flavour with bitter aftertaste. Fizzy palate.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2010
[330ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Pours highly carbonated, swiftly dispersing head with a regular rising carbonation. Clear caramel brown copper colour, little hop aroma. Gentle, subdued flavour - very dry, little hops but some malt to balance out. A smooth easy drinker. The prime character is malt, with a caramel flavour that peters out very quickly indeed and finishes quite thin. It’s a good approximation of a style, but not a great style. Interesting Ray Richardson label. [14062010]

rand (1820) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Very nice copper reddish, small and fleeting collar white-cream, average crackling. Aromas of malt-toffy, stone fruits and kernels. The taste is malty caramel and toasted, rather round, hints of bitterness, nuts and tart tips.
