Build a rocket boys! (Robinsons)

Build a rocket boys! (Robinsons)
Name: 'build a rocket boys!'
Label: "...a new beer created by elbow and brewed by Robinsons. Named after their album, the band designed the beer after a series of tastings at Robinsons Unicorn Brewery in Stockport."
Brewery: Robinsons
ABV: 4.0%

Rating: "A golden ale with a rich balanced body, smooth bitterness, subtle tang of malt and fruity aroma."  I've not listened to Elbow's music much as I've always assumed it may not be my cup of tea, but that doesn't matter as this beer is certainly, er.. my cup of tea... My wife loves the band so I'm off to search for her Elbow CDs for a sneaky listen.

Game: The last post was all about what you couldn't do during Space Marines. Red Faction: Armageddon is all about what you can do. Want to get in that mech and drive it? Sure. Want to drive that Crawler? Sure. Want to fly that flyable thing? Hell yeah, get in there and do it bro!  Red Faction is essentially an over-the-shoulder third person corridor shooter but with great destructible environments. As mentioned there are some surprisingly great mech/vehicle driving sequences which contain some beefy and satisfyingly punchy weaponry at your disposal. A disintegratingly good 7.5 / 10.

Hm RF seems to have sold out in a lot of places. It did go sub - £5 (probably not what you want to hear lol) which is when I got it.

No fair! I want my own beer!

Last and best price I saw was €12.99, no competition here, Game are still charging fulll release day price for Red Dead Redemption, undead. Maddening
