Cask at Swan, Farnborough. 06/04/17. A soapy floral aroma. Chestnut. Good creamy off-white head. Light bitter. Hoppy. Floral. Gets more bitter in to the finish but never overly so. Watery and soft. OK. My colleagues loved it. It was somewhat inoffensive, I guess.

Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall as Hogs Back Hogswallop. Dark amber orange-brown, foamy light brown head dies to a scum after a few minutes, leaves thick lacing. Aroma is airy up front, like sniffing water. As it drains there is some faint toffee and fruit salad. Very muted. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is gummy bears and snakes up front, probably other gummy animals too, building drying floral hops, some tangy fruit and papery dryness in the finish. Pretty decent.
