Up And Under Ale (Shepherd Neame)

Up And Under Ale (Shepherd Neame)
Name: Up And Under Ale
Label: "What a BOOTiful Ale - Master Brewer's Choice"
Brewery: Shepherd Neame
ABV: 3.8%

Rating: "Deeply coloured, rich and full bodied, this sporty ale has been brewed with a ruck of the finest roasted malts and a triple crown of the choicest hops resulting in a grand slam of a beer you will want to tackle. Try a fly half to ensure conversion."  I might be mistaken but I think there's a rugby theme going on with this beer...  I'm more of a football fan myself but the ale is top notch.

Game: It's official, Dead Space 3 is (still) amazing. A quick word on micro-transactions... you can spend real money / Microsoft points in-game to buy crafting materials and weapons. I'm not against micro-transactions per se, if the game is free. Having paid the best part of £40 for the game though, I'm totally against it in this case. Similar with DLC in general, it should be included with a full price retail game in my opinion.  So until the games are free they can stick their micro-transactions up their micro-arseholes. Luckily I'm progressing through the game quite nicely, without the slightest feeling of being hamstrung by my unwillingness to fork out extra cash for content. Still giving it 9/10.

EA gave me an extra suit (already on disc) for playing Dead Space 2 and the N7 armour for playing Mass Effect 3 (already on disc).

...makes me wonder what the hell else is on the disc I don't get access to...

maybe I should charge them for storing their software modules in my home.....

Like you I haven't found the need to purchase any equipment yet... win win!!! :)

Hello there, welcome back traveller! Thought you'd got lost in space or something!

I liked the N7 suit. Have you tried the co op option yet? I've not but there's apparently different missions and cutscenes to marvel at.
