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.

Aroma is a bit bland, grassy hops and caramel are the main attractions. Taste is similar with a bit more going on however alround a bit unintresting.

Cask at White Cross Beer festival 2014. Copper ale with a massssssive white head. Nose is floral, lemony hops. Light and breezy in the mouth imparting some lemon, tasty light biscuits, touch of toffee. Sweet, bitter, balanced.

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.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - AUG 11, 2013
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.

Beer4000 (4476) - 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.

RichTheVillan (2911) - 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.

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%
