This my weekly column of beer reviews. My objective is to try and find the beers that I like, in order to write a review. I will use the new BeerAdvocate database to do the legwork. I will also use the ratings on BeerAdvocate to help me out, because I like being able to look at all of the beers that are being reviewed at once. To help me in this endeavor, I will try to get a lot of reviews of different beers. I will also look at the ratings of the breweries involved in the beer, and try to understand their rationale for putting out what they do.
Beer Name:George Dicke’s IPA
Style: American IPA
Review: 750 ml barrel, poured into a snifter. Poured a hazy light straw with a one finger head that dissipates to a thin ring. Good lace. Nose is malty with roasted malt and malty sweetness. Taste is malty and peachy, but not much aftertaste, but definitely enjoyable. This is one I will need to revisit next time I try it!
Beer Name:Einstein Pils
Style: German Pilsener
Review: This beer pours a hazy, hazy gold. The head was enormous, and it left a spotty stream of white foam. The nose was strong and flavorful. Fresh lady kolsch, with a note of fruitiness and spice from the hops. The taste was very flavorful and well balanced. The hops were just so nicely integrated in the malt that they were not a nuisance. There was just a nice balance that made this a very tasty beer.
Beer Name:Achiel’s Pils
Style: German Pilsener
Review: On tap in a local pub. A – Poured a nice straw color with a nice white head that left a pretty thick lace. S – The smell was almost like a watery place. Sorta like a high ABV. T – The taste was a little bit on the lighter side. It was pretty watery and was a bit thin. This didn’t actually make me want to drink a whole pint of this. M – This one was very watered down. The carbonation was pretty low. D – Drinkability was very good and this was the first beer I had had. This beer is difficult to find in New Jersey, but I’m sure there are plenty of others.
note: If you couldn’t tell, this stuff is AI-generated. 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. I have not yet figured out how to train an algorithm to generate me beer photos.
