At brew wharf. Ruby body with small rocky head. Malty nose with wheat notes. Taste of malts, roasty and a bit oliy. Bitter with some hops in the finish. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2008
Gravity cask in the brewery sample room. Red/brown with a good off white head. Typical mild, malty, light with very little hops. Refreshing. KnutAlbert (6791) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2008
Cask at the Royal Oak.
Lovely dark ruby beer, but the flavour and aroma is like a loaf of bread. This style, as ever, fails to impress me. It does not surprise me that the style is almost gone. Lawnmower beer. HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
Cask. At Royal Oak (Borough). Deep ruby brown with a very small off-white frothy head. Mild oily roast aroma, surprisingly bitter and dry - a weak generic lightly resiny bitterness. The taste isn’t bad, oily roast, dry, the bitterness seems a bit harsh in the finish. Has a light, oily mouthfeel and a slightly harsh aftertaste - not bad, per se, but not quite there.

The Garland, Redhill. Pale ruby exuding a stagnant watery dankness. Sodden with canal and beansprout. Lick of carp. Big hop bitterness but no roast, chocolate, dark fruit or anything I associate with a mild, even at 3%. Wet biscuity afters. Doesn’t work for me at all.

Cask (Royal Oak,London) - Brown in colour with some red tinges. Sweet and malty aroma with some roasted notes. Slightly sour and malty taste. Not bad. Skinnyviking (9717) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2008
Cask. Low fluffy yello and quickly disappearing head. Dar red brown body. Roasted malt aroma, nothing else. Mild berries flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short aftertaste. Boring. downender (8882) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Royal Oak, SE1 1/8/08. Dark brown in coloured with a slight, off-white head. Slight aroma of fruit and caramel. Sweet malt aroma with more fruit and a short, dry finish. Good. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2008
Cask at The Royal Oak, Borough. Dark copper colour with a small froth. Fruity aroma and flavours, a touch of caramel towards the finish. Light-bodied. Not the most exciting mild around. Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Cask at the Royal Oak with Mes and reakt, 2nd Sept 2007. Clear dark brown with a slight nutty aroma. Flavour of chocolate and bitter hops. Palate is light but flavoursome. Just right for a mild.
