A-hop-alypse Now (Camerons)

A-hop-alypse Now (Camerons)
Name: A-hop-alypse Now Golden Ale
Label: "I love the smell of hops in the morning"
Brewery: Camerons
ABV: 4.3%

Tasting notes: "ATTEN HUT!! Your Mission: You require delicious hoppy goodness with a satisfying bitter finish. The Target: Your taste buds. Inventory Required: 1 Glass (preferably pint), 1 Bottle Opener, 1 Chilled Bottle of A-Hop-Alypse Now (loaded with Chinook, Cascade & Fuggles hops). Complete your mission for full flavour satisfaction. Good luck soldier!" Great name, great taste!

Game: After the abomination of the Doom multiplayer beta, it's time to try the single player campaign instead. Well blimey, it's great! No sprint button, no reloading, no health regeneration, just straight forward legging it around really fast killing demons constantly. Oh and Mars and Hell never looked so good. Double Oh and, the doors sound the same as on the original Doom! Rating: 9 Hells out of 10

MPA (JW Lees)

MPA (JW Lees)
Name: MPA
Label: "Manchester Pale Ale - Refreshing golden ale"
Brewery: JW Lees
ABV: 4.1%

Tasting notes: "MPA is a golden ale made from all British malt, Liberty and Mount Hood hops. It's brewed especially for bottle to capture the full, hoppy character of our cask beer - it's the perfect alternative to draught MPA."

Game: Only a few days until the final Witcher 3 DLC lands. Blood and Wine.  I was hoping for Blood and Ale, or even just Lager, but I'll settle for Blood and Wine I guess. I love the Witcher series and want more more more but Marcin Iwinski (job title: Big Wig in Witcher-land) said in an interview, "I can assure you we are not working on another Witcher".  You can't assure negative things you foolish genius Witcher game inventorer! It's against the laws of physics or something. So this means they must actually be making a Witcher 4!  Phew, glad that's sorted. I'm going to call my mate Marcin now for a release date. Speak soon. x
