sm89walt (1992) - 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.

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 Harveys 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.
