Warrior (Elgood's)

Warrior (Elgood's)
Name: Warrior
Label: "Tenax Propositi - Gold award SIBA East bottled beer competition"
Brewery: Elgood's
ABV: 5.5%

Rating: "A truly traditional English Bitter Ale, a blend of finest Pale Ale, Amber and Crystal malt is used for the fruity malty flavour and generous portions of English Hop varities (Challenger, Goldings and Fuggles) to give a well developed hop character.This beer is brewed by Elgood's & Sons at the North Brink brewery, a 5th generation family firm, still fighting to keep the business thriving! Warrior is an expression of the independence that has kept this brewery in solely private hands since 1795."

Game: I was really tempted to go for the staff writer job at the awesome X360 Magazine. This is one of my favourite ever magazines. Imagine having a job at your favourite magazine! The only drawbacks to applying that I can see are; not being able to write very well, living about 500 miles away, no applicable qualifications and a host of other reasons too numerous to mention. Maybe if I was younger and not tied down I'd give it a whirl. It's times like these that this tweet from @MrMichaelSpicer particularly resonates with me: "Don't you hate it when you put the dishwasher on and then find some dirty cups elsewhere and then regret the decisions you made in your 20s?"

:( that's profound and so true... I certainly wouldn't be wearing this warrior outfit that's for sure...

On the positive side, just how much can anybody write about staffs...

But that warrior outfit is amazing! You know you've made it when you can wear a warrior outfit with pride!

And heck yeah staffs are a veritable gold mine of interesting prose. Have you never seen this site:

My personal favourite is the decorated staff, "Beautifully decorated staffs ideal for practice and daytime spinning." It wouldn't be daytime without a good spin of my staff. Great for keeping annoying colleagues away from your desk too.

Thank you Bickle, thought the outfit was a tad OTT... and as for the introduction to staffs, I hold you in very high esteem....

Particularily found of these fire staffs, which If I've read the instructions correctly should go...
