Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews…
First up this week, we have the AI Beer Reviews of Dogfish Head.
Are you sitting comfortably? Okay, in case your desk wasn’t already firmly in the ground you have no business sitting on. We’ve got a brand new beer in town just for your Thanksgiving feast. You better believe that I’m excited. As a guy who enjoys drinking other guys beers, I’ll keep my real hate for the American craft beer industry to myself. But what I do know is that I have over a hundred beers to choose from this year. And I’m not replying to this tweet asking for recommendations. Although, often times I do recommend some of the things I find to the rest of the beer world…
I won’t…at the moment.
Before I change my mind about that, let me quote the drunk boy on the front page of White’s Paycheck this morning:
“Not all creativity is good, but most is terrible. A great deal of creativity, however, is bad. It’s like mixing garlic and bell pepper. It’s a fun and unexpected combination, but it’s not going to win any beauty pageants.”
Okay, that settles it.
Style: American Pale Ale (APA)
Review: Had this on tap at the Pizza Hut on the first of May weekend. Had a nice, soft caramel color with a frothy, crystal clear head that left lots of spongy lacing in my glass. This is a toasted pale ale with a great flavor. Goes down easy, but I am glad I had the opportunity to try this ale. I love it and will revisit.
Beer Name:Wolf Dried Caramel Ale
Style: American Adjunct Lager
Review: I was lucky enough to sample this beer in a can and was completely blown away by it. This really came as a surprise. It’s almost made me forget about Miller Lite for a moment. I found this to be a fun beer to drink and I will definitely buy again.
Beer Name:Brooklyn Winter Ale
Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Review: On tap at the Lord Javits. As expected with this beer, the beer was turned to cellar conditioning. The head was thick and foamy and somewhat decent lacing. As for the nose, there was a definite green peppercorniness. Grind of the beer for 3 sips but the beer was consumed in a “hint” manner. ly the nectar of the wild west with a touch of sourness. Light mouthfeel and no real carbonation.
Beer Name:Alberts Blauw (Blue)
Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Review: Poured a very dark amber with a chunk of tan head and lots of rust. No real head and lots of lacing.
Aroma is just plum, brown sugar, caramel, sugar, spices, and a little sourness. Taste is electric.
Tastes of caramel, spice, molasses, dark fruits. A little bit of a silliness in the finish. Now I’m just thrown by the character of this beer. The scent is very enjoyable. Bearing in mind the fact that I’m not a big fan, it’s amazing.
Mouthfeel is medium and floats around the mouth. A good beer for a summertime neighborhood beer. Too orangey to be a regular, but others might enjoy.
Update: Nuff said. Nothing got to me like this beer. Poured a slightly cloudy hued brew into a pot and held at room temperature.
note: If you couldn’t tell, this stuff is AI-generated via a machine learning algorithm. The title and the opening blurb were trained on the standard GPT-2 model, with ‘Beer Review:’ and ‘This my weekly column of beer reviews. ‘ given as prompts. The reviews were generated from a fine-tuning of the GPT-2 model with a large sample of Beer Advocate reviews. I selected from the saved samples of these and put this post together.
