Double Dropped Bitter (Brakspear)
Label: "Craft brewed in Oxfordshire using the unique 'Double Dropped' fermentation system"
Rating: "Brewed as it always has been, with Maris Otter barley, English Goldings & Fuggles hops using the unique Brakspear 'Double Drop' system, that provides a robust second fermentation stage to produce a remarkably drinkable ale with complex, fragrant, mouthwatering characteristics." A complex and long-winded description on the back of the bottle there, yet mouthwateringly accurate.
Game: A lull in new releases does have its benefits. I've managed to finish Catherine, Clone Wars and I Am Alive recently. I Am Alive is probably one of the most atmospheric games I've played for a long time. Its oppressively bleak post-apocalyptic take on running and climbing with limited resources is a unique experience and the clogging stamina-sapping dust at ground-level is almost palpable. Coupled with the haunting soundtrack this makes it one of the best downloadable games on offer so far. 7/10.
