That’ll be pigswill then….

In a funny way this sort of name which seems to be a weird aberration  in a seemingly normal range of beers is more distressing than a whole collection devoted to tortured puns and or random badly drawn single entendres, it’s like seeing a wart on Winoa Ryder/George Clooney’s face.
I found this porcine “gem” via the excellent Royal Albert pub down in New Cross, so it may well be a nice drop of ale but the asssociations with boiled up school dinners and 10 day old cabbage kinda puts me off trying it sadly.

  1. I had this in The Two Pigs in Corsham last June. I think it might be the house beer there, perhaps accounting for the name. Sadly the half I tried was pretty awful. They also had some local Box Steam Brewery beers though, which were lovely as well as having classy pumpclips.

  2. erm it’s called “pig swill” which last time I checked wasn’t a cheery term of endearment. “How’s the tea in canteen today?” “Oh the usual pig swill”…
    Although maybe Beerprole reviews shows it’s well truthfully named .

  3. Unfortunately it’s a bit of an insipid beer – with a name like that I’d have expected something a bit more down and dirty, with a bit of thickness to the body. Its actually a very tame amber ale, especially for 4%. If you’ve ever fed pigs its a bit like mushed up weetabix.
