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.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2008
500 ml bottle. Amber with a weak haze. Medium-sized white fluffy head that clings to the glass. Light cidic biscuity aroma. Soft carbonation. Powdery nutty flavours with hints of dark chocolate. Cacao powder texture. Peppery. Watery mouthfeel, but quite a few things are happening on the palate, so it’s quite nice afterall. Lingering earthy hop biterness that lasts all the way through.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2008
JDW @ Victoria Station. Amber with an off white foam, obviously sparkled. Sweet and malty with some slightly metallic, grassy hops that linger in the finish. Not so bad really.

bobinlondon (1288) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Light brown with good white head. Some vanilla notes leading to a fruity bitter finnish. Nothing to write home about but drinkable and refreshing.

(Cask at St. Urho’s on 2008-07-18) Amber and clear. Quite long-lasting medium-sized bubbly white head. Medium to full palate with little carbonation. Roasted malts, bread and bitterness in taste. Quite strong-bodied for a real ale which is good.
