Thin Ice (Sadler's)

Thin Ice (Sadlers)
Name: Thin Ice
Label: "Extra Pale Ale - An extremely pale beer finished with a hint of citrus orange hops - Brewed in the Black Country"
Brewery: Sadler's
ABV: 4.5%

Rating: "Uplifting aromas of zesty orange, melon and kiwi lead to a refreshing tart citrus sensation. A delicate sweet malt character softens the citrus burst and leads to a distinctive bitter finish.  Brewed with the finest English Maris Otter barley and Green Bullet hops from New Zealand."

Game: I don't understand a lot of the reviews I'm reading about Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.  It's a 2D platformer. No wait, it's a GREAT 2D platformer and yet reviewers are begrudgingly admitting its great but in the same breath bemoaning the lack of 'innovation' and mark it down. Seriously, what do these people want from a Donkey Kong game? Augmented Reality? Snow in your living room for extra immersion? Monkeys lobbing bananas (or worse) out of the telly at you? Multiplayer deathmatches? I don't want any of that. I want an HD Donkey Kong adventure and that's what this game delivers. Splendiferous graphics, exquisite soundtrack and lots of platforming action! If you have a Wii U get Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. If you don't have a Wii U, get a Wii U and then get Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Rating: 9/10
