COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Golden with a small white head. Floral aroma. The taste begins with an intense caramel maltiness which leads into a wonderful, profound earthy, grainy centre that lingers in the mouth, alternating between sweetness and dryness, leaving a strong bitter aftertaste at the back of the throat. Just 3.9%: a beer to savour all evening. Delightful. Not so impressed with its bottled alter ego, On the Tiles, 4.0%, which was hazy copper with a nasty salty aroma and none of the sweetness in the taste. Just a flat dreary, washed out staleness. Can this really be the same beer? Also it had another of those disagreeable labels which feature a cartoon of a drunken animal, in this case a top-hatted cat. Rating 4,2,4,3,9,2.2
