rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2011
Cask at the Folly Bridge, Oxford, England.greenmanalishi (547) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Clear deep golden colour with small white head.
Weak aroma. Flavour is mild. Some nuts, wood, malt and fruits.
Very ordinary and average English Bitter. Doesn’t stand out in any way.
Oats, malt, perhaps a little liquorice to the flavour. Palate and overall balance a bit disappointing. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
[3177-20100728] Cask. Grainy wet brewery floor aroma with a little steam room sweat. Clear, medium orange amber body with quick foamy off-white bubbles. Grainy malt continues in the flavour. Medium body. Nice for a punt and a pint but an average beer.

(@ Victoria Arms, Oxford, England)
Draught at The Cellar, Highworth - 25/9/10. Dark amber coloured with a thin head. Fruity taste and a decent beer. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Nice balance of malt and hops. A nice reddish color. Pleasant bitter. Serving: Cask
Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
@ Royal Oak, Widcombe. Dark golden-amber. Caramelly-toasty aroma with light yeast fruitiness, but also hints of pedio. Toasty character, with light, fruity tartness. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
@ the "other" Royal Oak" in Bath on Pultney Rd. Red/amber/copper. Scant lace. Aroma is slightly flawed with a possible infection, smells sour and metallic. Some acetone in the flavors too. But, has a very good malt character similar to the Bass Ale profile. Should revisit. RuneStumo (2673) - Haugesund, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2010
11.01.2008, 0,5l on tap at The Nags Head, Covent Garden London. Brown colour, malty and fruity with balancing hop character. jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
2010-07-28. Dark amber with a small frothy white head. Flavour is malty, sweet with caramel accents and tangy notes, bit of an odd melange and a rough finish. Mild aroma, toasty character. Average palate. Meh. Cask at Victoria Arms, Oxford
dynamiteninja (1863) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2010
Cask, Eldon Arms, Reading. Thin white head, clear copper body. Branded glass. Sulphur dominates the aroma. Plenty of sweet biscuity malt character, with hops also. Sweet and bitter to taste. Dry clean finish. Not exactly my cup of tea.
