Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews
Every week, I’ll bring you AI beer reviews from a couple of our buddies at Untappd. Now, he’s not the only one that pulls this off: Beerist reviews are also available on Untappd, and I tend to read them, too. And, of course, every week I’ll have Mikkeller reviews on Untappd.
Anyway. How do you stop an AI beer review from sounding like a blind man’s guide to an alien megacity? Clearly, you don’t. So we’ll start this column with an AI beer review of Mikkeller’s Less Frothy and a call to action.
A Better Thug Ale
The buzz about Backstreet Boys is growing louder every day, and you’d think that the last time the group released an album you could find three singles that were all pretty terrible. But, despite how it seems, there’s a good reason that the guys probably aren’t going to release another album any time soon.
Mikkeller hasn’t been able to make another one because the music industry is just too saturated with commercialized mainstream banger albums. It’s hard to make a hit album these days without all the fun stuff accumulated
Beer Name:El Kendrick
Style: American Barleywine
Review: Great beer overall. Arrogant. I felt a bit like I was paddling or working on a field ground in the bog.
A-Hazy amber.antlepardished a uniform keltama of tight white hazy niggles in a manly dome of a head.
S-Malty nose combos with a beardy peomy feel. Very fruity.
T- Sweet…Very nice. Continual sweetness. Land-like sweet-sugary feeling.
M- sweeter than anything a dark bar could push through.
D- Darkness-driver kind-way. Nice years.
Beer Name Served Temp Stock
Review: 12 ounce bottle with date on label, appeared in a Pilsner glass. Bottled on 11/23/07, smile of the Bulldogs on the side of the neckline. Pours a cloudy golden straw with three fingers of white foam. The nose is this sweet from the simple fruitiness of the malts. Ribbon-strength caramel malt takes me into cup after cup and I’m forced to swallow. The taste is just muted after the sweet. Mild delicious malts with some of this candy candy taste in the finish. The mouthfeel, gentle for its ABV, is not great. I like the pils and have to give it a B+ just because I’m a fan of the Bulldogs.
Beer Name:Death & Taxes Pale Ale
Style: American Pale Ale (APA)
Review: On tap at Hop City and covered w/a gubble blonde that’s more gravy than a saison w/nose w/cha (whatever that is). Nice beer with lots of hop flavor that doesn’t take long to feel. Nice beer nonetheless…exactly what a pale ale should be…with a bright glow of Sunny Wheat behind the vis and skin…reminds me of a bier butter that must have resulted from mashed potatoes.
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. I’ve been working in some of OpenAI’s GPT-3 davinci model stuff in too, where applicable. The images were generated on runwayml.com.
