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.

RichTheVillan (6792) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Cask at Arthur Robertson (JDW); Uninspiring English bitter, brown, feint hops, slight malt , watery texture and taste, why did I buy a full pint of this.

stravale (2834) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 24, 2012
Cask @ JDW Muckle Cross, Elgin 230912
Amber, thin bubbly head, some lacing
Aroma - light fruity pale malts, soft spicy hops, soft yeast
Taste - fruity pale malts, quite spicy hops, pale caramel malts, touch peppery, hint of background honey, touch herbal, slightly aromatic, bit unusual, quite nice
Palate - soft carb, thinnish body, bit oily, spicy bitter. Finish - dry as main flavour with more cereal malts, very lingering bit peppery aromatic dryness
Overall - Quite a spicy beer, more flavour than usual for 3.9%

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Cask @ The Willow Walk. Pours medium amber with a tiny white head. The aroma’s pretty standard brown bread with hints of toffee. Not much of a nose, really. The taste is crystal malt, toffee, hints of peppery meadow. Dry finish. Light body. Overall - fine. There’s not much to this. OK, I guess.

tombyars (1595) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2012
First tasted this in the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh in February 2000. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear reddish amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Dusty hops present in the short aroma. Resiny thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with marmalade fruit notes evident. Strong quota of hops come through in the dry, resiny, bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty with vinous fruit coming through. An ok session bitter but outclassed by East Street Cream though.

hawthorne00 (3537) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. Amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of lemon and flowers, light biscuit. Sweet with peaches and a little caramel, lemon and a little pepper. Thinnish mouthfeel, a little overcarbonated. Solid bitter finish. A decent bitter in good nick.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2011
On cask at The Haymarket. Pours a copper colour with a thin white head. Aroma of Weetabix malt, caramel and barley. Malty flavour upfront and nicely bitter with grassy hops, mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. OK.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2011
Hand pulled at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Gnawing, boring bitter, with sour tea bag and honeyed cardboard. A hector of UK hop to finish, with a ribbon of caramel. Bland.
