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.

argo0 (13581) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 17, 2005
(cask) Rocky off-white head that leaves beautiful lacing atop a hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange peel, lemongrass, some floral, light caramel. Taste is same as aroma. Watery light-medium body. Nice session beer.

RichardGretton (4697) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is fairly dry with a toffee finish and the flavour is refreshing, slightly watery but with a long bitter and toffee/caramel finish. Overall an average beer, nice though.

imdownthepub (13715) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2005
Bottle conditioned as On the Tiles, 500ml. Orange amber beer with slight head. Thin dull flavour, little richness to the body nor finishing notes, just a basic pale ale really. Sharp acidity on the tongue.

Ungstrup (35695) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 4, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF, 2004] A dark amber beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is of roasted malt - very nice. The flavor is primarily roasted, but also with a tone of sweet malt. The end is quite dry.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2004
Pale copper. Grassy hoppy aroma with a light notes of butter. Aromatic but a bit unclean flavour grassy hops and butter. Long grassy aftertaste.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Hazy golden color, enormous fluffy white head, softly, slowly shifting down. Nose is nothing much. I cant find a thing, but...at least its not bad. Bitter citric taste up front,freshly hoppy. Lemon zest and yeast, rides long on the tongue and in the mouth. Taste...well...there it is...not very "rebellious", just a decent bitter, smooth, slightly fruity, with that lightly lingering hoppiness, easy drinking all the way, creamy and quaffable. Yadda, yadda.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 29, 2004
(Cask conditioned) Clear amber color with small head. Oaky, hoppy aroma. Very bitter flavor with oak barrel - and hops completely stealing the show. A decent, but slightly watery bitter that is very close to RCH Pitchfork.

SilkTork (5610) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2004
UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 Crown & Thistle Amber with bubble head. Softly dry palate. Initial orange sweetness gradually fades into a tight bitterness. Spanking balance. An exciting, delicate, fresh and fragrant session bitter. Very good! [3.6]
Bottle Conditioned as On The Tiles. Surprisingly good for a low abv bottled session bitter. The colour of cat's pee, but a pleasantly fragrant aroma. Crisp and clean and very refreshing. [3.1}

leaparsons (10137) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2004
Pale orange in colour. The aromas are, er, cardboard with some citrus notes. Flavours are equally thin. Buttery malts with citrus tang and a dulling mellowness. Not the best of RCH.
