3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Greenwich Union Pub. Has a little bit of red body in this drop but more tawny brown. Malt characters in the taste that last but little else. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 33cl. Purchased in Drinks of the World in Zürich. It pours a clear amber beer with a smallish decently lacing head. Raisin, diacetyl, DMS and some caramel underneath in the nose. I can hardly find any Cascade reminiscence in the taste. I don’t like the malt profile. Nutty. Buttery finish which is surprisingly short. I am not a big fan of the style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with Daje
Copper clear, thin head. Smells of hay, malts and burned. Taste is medium malty, some sweetness, dry feel. Good bitter finish. Just a little boring that’s all

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle at the Greenwich Union, 24th July 2010. Russet colour with a fast vanishing white head. Light, with the weight of a lager, but malty and fruity on the tongue. Some hints of red fruits on the nose. Dry finish with even a hint of tobacco. Goes down surprisingly well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Complex Vienna style lager. Have to be honest that this style is not one I’ve generally been keen on. Colour is an inviting copper light brown. Aroma is toasty malt. Taste is sweet malt and grassy hops and finish has nuttiness to it. A flavoursome lager but probably not to everyone’s taste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, at the Greenwich Union, London.
Amber, nectar coloured body with a fine, almost creamy head, that faded away before really appreciating it. Good malty notes on the nose. Well round flavour, that covers all the bases. Good, medium and well balance palate. Despite SilkT's comments this was the best on the day for me (a different session mind).

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half pint poured at the Greenwich Union in Greenwich (London), a clear dark amber with a light tan bubby head. Too cold to note any aromas, maybe some light caramal. Chocolately flavours abound, combining with a hoppy bitterness, followed by a clean finish. Nice.
