IPA Reserve (Greene King)
Label: "Brewing in Bury St Edmunds since 1799"
Brewery: Greene King
Rating: "A warming, full-bodied ale with a reassuringly rich appearance that belies its mellow fruit aroma. Grapefruit and Orange citrus tones combine with the floral and herbal Styrian Goldings hop variety to deliver a reserve ale of exceptional quality with a dry bitter finish." Another one to add to my favourite top five beers. My top five now contains more than five though.
Game: It got quite poor reviews but thought I'd give Ninja Gaiden 3 a go. I've played the others in the series so why not! So far it's great! If you're ever after a one dimensional, linear, repetitive button-masher then this is the game for you. It's completely brainless but totally action-packed fun and, although I detest the term I'll say it anyway, a guilty pleasure. No levelling up, no upgrades, no shops, no hundreds of moves and combos to learn, only two weapons and one Ninpo attack, and lots of bad guys. It's simple and uncomplicated. Like a really ace arcade game. 7.5/10.
