The beer pours amber and light brown in color. There is a half-inch of off-white head. The aroma is malty, nutty, caramel, toffee. The taste follows the aromas and adds in a grassy bitterness. The finish is quite dry. The beer drinks smooth, with a moderate carbonation. If you like a malty, but dry beer, with a bitter finish, then I hope you got to try this limited edition. Not a lot to say about it, the beer speaks for itself, and is another great beer from this Union Series.
