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

500 ml bottle, as RCH On The Tiles, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Bottle conditioned. ABV is 4.0%. Deep golden to orange coloured beer, slightly hazy, low off-white head. Very nice hoppy aroma, notes of tropical fruits. The flavour has a nice balance between the malts (with a hint of caramel) and the distinct and grapefruity hops throughout. Hoppy finish and aftertaste, but not too bitter. Possibly inspired by American pale ales? Anyhow, I like it!

Cask/GBBF06 staff bar: copper/brown, deep citric flavour with outstanding bittering hops which last and last in the mouth long after I finished the beer. Easily the best British ale I sampled at the GB. I thought it was outstanding.

ladnewton (2069) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2009
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London on 7th October 2009. Amber with small white head that laces well initially. Grassy hop aromas; good hoppy bitter focus in main kick and a dry, hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is slightly textured and all in all this is a good, refreshing session ale.

SilkTork (5919) - 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}

harrisoni (19529) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2007
Cask gravity at Kent BF 07. Copper, lasting bubbly beige head. Actually a great session bitter, good malt/hop combo, hop on end was very good. Balanced and drinkable. I liked it.

davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 9, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle 500ml, tasting at Atticus Finch. Nice beer. Aromas of burnt caramel, cola, and liquorice. Taste is sweet, with average duration. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Brown, with a thin head.

Ungstrup (38860) - 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.
