Blandford Flyer (Badger)

Blandford Flyer (Badger)
Name: Blandford Flyer
Label: "A bite of spicy ginger"
Brewery: Badger
ABV: 5.2%

Rating: "With the hot summer sun beating down, the patient fly-fisherman of the Dorset Stour await their catch. These 'Flyers' are celebrated in this warming ale with ginger overtones, rumoured to be originally included to remedy the bites of the infamous Blandford Fly. The rounded sweetness of this medium-bodied brew makes it an ideal and refreshing accompaniment to a hot lamb biryani or spicy crispy chilli beef."

Game: Crikey, Mass Effect 3 has caused some controversy! Now it's all about the 'rubbish' endings, which I actually happen to quite like. I didn't really understand what was going on but there was explosions and stuff which looked ace. Anyway, there's been a petition to get the endings changed and now Bioware are releasing DLC to make it happen. An horrific turn of events, I'd sooner have the Reapers destroy Earth than let mob rule choose the endings of the games I buy. Fans are fans, not writers, writers are writers and that's why they write games. Hopefully you can see the logic there.

I'm just about to finally give it to them reapers, Me (Shepard) Ashley, and the Prothean.

Could do with a Blandford Flyer about now, first time in London though! :)

As for the ending... haven't seen it yet! but see your point, I can imagine the look of horror on J.K. Rowling's face changing the ending on Harry Potter.

But if we get extra content for nought, well I'm up for that... if it's quality, though to be honest I'm more concerned about getting my Shepard face repaired.... I had a pretty impressive Starbuck face on 1 and 2, which for the life of me I can't recreate in 3

Mind you if this was EA we'd have a new ending every year..... :(

"banditer ishat" I'm sure that's Quarian!!!

No spoilers here! I kicked ass with the Prothean too. I made Ash stay at home tho in case she got hurt on the missions. Oh lovely Ash... sigh... wipes away tear...

Ahem, anyway, yeah good point re: free content. At least we'll have even more endings! Woo hoo! And I wont forget the ending I got. You never forget your first ending!

I like your quote btw, it's definitely Quarian, it means "Can someone pass the toilet roll please..."

First play thru .....

And I'm drained after it... ending was as it should be, superb!

Now off to dust the first game..

I'm drained after it, and the ending is as it should be... Superb!! I'm seriously at at a loss to understand what all the clamour was about.

Now off to dust off the first game, hope they have this in the nursing home when I retire....

Oops almost forgot... The quote was from you highly interactive human or robot comment checker :)

(hands Bickle the toilet paper)

Of course yes, the quote was the robot checker thing speaking Quarian again. Sorry, I wasn't concentrating, was thinking of Ash again... *wipes teary eye with bog roll*
