Pumpkin Ale (Saranac, Matt Brewing)

Pumpkin Ale (Saranac, Matt Brewing)
Name: Pumpkin Ale
Label: "The spirits of the Adirondacks - Ale brewed with pumpkin spices and other natural flavours"
Brewery: Saranac, Matt Brewing Company
ABV: 5.0%

Rating: "In celebration of the fall harvest, here's an autumn favourite that's as enjoyable as pumpkin pie. This hearty ale is brewed with cinnamon all spice, cloves and vanilla. Look for a full body and amber color. We're sure you'll enjoy this special brew!"  I've never had pumpkin pie. If it's anything like the beer though I'm sure it's positively ace.

Game: Finally got round to finishing Portal 2... with zero help from the Internet. Ok it's not that great an achievement I guess, it's not like rocket science or brain surgery or anything. It's more like creating portals to hard to reach places and then walking through them. But as far as puzzle games go, it's been the best one I've ever played. It definitely had me stumped for periods of time too which makes beating the game all the more satisfying. My rating: 8 out of 10.

Congratulations! *Cuts Cake*

I felt like a genius come the end and more so for the lack of help.

We should give co-op a try sometime. It says you can only play with people on your friends list.

yeah co-op would be cool, 'specially with free dlc! But will we be able to put Batman and Skyrim down for any meaningful length of time??

James Sterling said...

Ah yeah, good point. Think I'm nearing the end of Batman now (sadly) and for some reason just bought limbo! Can't resist a bargain.

Maybe after Skyrim, and Assassins Creed, oh and Halo. Shall we say 2013??

Bickle77 said...

Arghhh! Forgot about Halo! And Mass Effect 3! And with Silent Hill being one of my fave series I'll be getting that too! I'm sure we can squeeze a bout of portal 2 co-op in there at some point tho!

James Sterling said...

Yeah, think we owe it to our brains! :)
