sm89walt (1947) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2011
Cask - The Royal Oak, Borough, London. Poured a hazy, deep ruddy brown with a fine though lasting tan head leaving a moderate, soapy lace. Mild sweet roasty, fruity notes on the aroma. Delicate roast on the tongue, a hint of chocolate, nutty, house yeast and a finishing berry tang. Dry medium length bitterness, light body with softish carbonation.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2011
Cask at the Lord Nelson, Brighton. Pours amber-brown with a filmy, off-white head. Some light toasted malts and ripe fruit in the nose. Flavor is lightly sweet with hints of toffee, some bread and faint, ripe dark fruits. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finish is lightly dry with dark fruit. Alright, nothing special.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2010
Cask. The Royal Oak, London. Brown colour. A bit odd aroma. Slightly sweet and malty, lightly roasted, some fruit. Watery mouthfeel. Maybe a bit too thin and anonymous, but very drinkable.

Mildatheart (2) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2010 does not count
Royal Oak Tabard Street. Fabulous pints of Harvey’s dark mild. Caramel with hardly any hop taste, slightly sweet with a velvet texture. Certainly went down well. As much as anything it is the pub that keeps it in this condtion as they have the turnover to keep it in top form.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2009
Cask in the Royal Oak, Borough. Alround rating: Thin, but a mix of the minerally water, just the right amount of roasty sweetness, small peppery hop all accounts to this balancing very nicly indeed. Had to stay for a pint and a half as i enjoyed it to much.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2009
Cask at Royal Oak, London. September 08. Poured brown with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of chocolate and fruit. A light bitterness is evident in the finish. My least preferred of the Harveys brews I’ve had there.
