4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 Aug, 2003: Gravity Cask, Chelmsford Beer Festival. Egg, acid and soap on the nose. Creamy impression. Big head. Wild raspberries. Perfume-free soap. Touch of wet leather. Clinging wet finish. [2.9]
Dec, 2004: Royal Oak, London. Beautiful ruby colour. Sulphur aroma. [2.9]
Nov, 2005 George V, Brompton. Refreshing and tasty. Sulphur and chocolate and roasted barley and that characteristic and very unique Harvey’s oaky wild sour yeast that really lifts their beers to world class status. Takes a while to get used to the taste and the unusual character. [4.2]

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Cask at the Royal Oak, London
Dark amber color to brown, thin persistent head. Light aroma, malt and wood. Very round mouthfeel for a Mild, malty, with a fair amount of caramel, and a very balanced final. Good.

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.

GBBF 2003, tap: Slightly toaste nose, dark brown color, low frothy head. Slow start of toasted malt, late arriving light woody dryness. Thin, watery. The over profile is like a wedge - a crescendo of flavors. Very good mild.
