Cheeky Pheasant (George Wright Brewing Company)

Cheeky Pheasant (George Wright Brewing Company)
Name: Cheeky Pheasant
Label: "Premium Ale"
Brewery: George Wright Brewing Company
ABV: 4.7%

Rating: "Cheeky Pheasant is a classic deep golden premium ale with a gentle taste of raisin and berry fruits, combined with the richness of malty toffee. Balanced throughout by a dry hoppy fulfilling bitterness."

Game: Far Cry 4 is pretty awesome and pretty and awesome. I went hang gliding for the first time and recorded it for posterity.  This is definitely what would happen to me in real life if I ever tried hang gliding - I also used to think it was called hand gliding but that must be something else:

Corby Ale (Cumberland Breweries)

Corby Ale (Cumberland Breweries)
Name: Corby Ale
Label: "An amber coloured ale. A moreish ale with malt character and a refreshing citrus after-taste."
Brewery: Cumberland Breweries
ABV: 3.8%

Rating: So good it was almost sexy.

Game: So Ubisoft made good on their offer for a free game for AC:Unity season pass purchasers. Currently getting my ass handed to me in Far Cry 4 on a regular basis. Must buy a gun, this bow and arrow just ain't gonna cut it! Incredible looking game too.  All hail Ubisoft! No really... Get hailing them right now! Hail like you've never hailed before!

Amber (McEwan's)

Amber (McEwans)
Name: Amber
Label: "Light and Refreshing - Amber Ale"
Brewery: McEwan's
ABV: 4.2%

Rating: "McEwan's have been brewing since 1856, and here's evidence that we haven't lost our touch. Whether shared among friends at the weekend or enjoyed in peace and quiet after a hard day's work, McEwan's Amber is the ale for any occasion. Light in colour, with the gentle aroma of Maris Otter malted barley, it offers a delightful floral, citrus finish. It makes for perfect refreshment, all year round."

Game: Being a massive Assassin's Creed fan and a fool I was easily parted with a further £23.99 to purchase the AC: Unity season pass. Then Ubisoft's Yannis Mallat (brother of Timmy) said that because Assassin's Creed was so glitchy, all season pass owners would be eligible for a free game from the following: The Crew, Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Rayman Legends, Just Dance 2015!  Is this Ubisoft attempting to salvage what's left of it's tattered brand? Or are they just genuinely a great company wanting to give us fans free stuff?  I think the latter because Ubisoft are ace and they make ace games. Everything is awesome :)
