Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned as On The Tiles.
The first beer brewed on the new site with the new plant. The name comes from Paul Davey M.D. and Graham Dunbavan Brewer and the Steam as we now had a steam boiler to heat the copper. This complex multi layered ale has a floral hop aroma with medium bodied hop, bitter taste with some fruit and sweetness.

berkshirejohn (6065) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
50cl bottle from Tesco’s, Wokingham. Bottle-conditioned, so a slightly hazy chestnut pour with a billowing, creamy head; rich, complex malty aroma, with some floral notes; buttery, caramel malt taste, with some berry fruit; and an elegant spritzy finish. A well-made, farmhouse-style bitter.

Vermeerbrewery (2) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2013 does not count
Bitter and dry but very malty flavour. Not so much a floral aroma, in fact tastes like most if not all of its complexity must originate from the choice of grains and fermentables, not a variety of hops. Takes a while to unfold in its full complexity. Due to the high bitterness it takes some effort to get through all if the layers.

Bottle. Hazy mid-tan. Thought it might have been called a steam beer because of the steaming head it created, thick and frothy. Aroma is biscuit and farmyard. Flavour is malted milk biscuits and resinous bitter finish. I liked it.

Beer5000 (5938) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 24, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009 as On the Tiles. Golden body with a big, dense off-whiter head. A bit weak aroma of malt, caramel and toast. Flavor is light malty, caramel and moderate bitter. A bit watery body and short aftertaste, Drinkable, but rather boring and uninspired.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2013
Pleasantly flowery aroma with a little bit of malt sweetness, Flavour is gently bitter with a mild biscuity maltiness. Over all a pleasant but not remarkable beer.
