Town Crier (Hobsons)
Label: "The natural choice - Crisp golden ale - Newhouse Farm - Cleobury Mortimer"
Rating: "No. 4 - Series 1. A beer with a big voice. In days of yore, only personages of standing could become a Town Crier. Being able to read was key but another characteristic was the ability to stand by your beliefs - unpopular announcements resulted in torrents of abuse from disgruntled by-standers. A beer with uncompromising integrity. A little like Hobsons really." I really liked this beer and I also really like to think that gruntled by-standers gave beer to Town Criers.
Game: Today I decided I had to play something else instead of The Witcher 2. I've played it so much recently that I got to a point where I was guiding our hero through a purple forest of huge mushrooms whilst trying to avoid making eye contact with a fifty-foot chicken. So, I've taken the opportunity to finish my first PS Vita game, Uncharted: Golden Abyss. A game I'm genuinely disappointed to get to the end of. Great tomb-raiding action with sublime voice acting and dialogue make this a solid 8/10. Having never played any previous games from the Uncharted series, Golden Abyss makes me want to buy a PS3!
