Beer Review:  The ADK Ales by Kinetik

This my weekly column of beer reviews. You may have seen the little red flag above. That is the flag of an upcoming review. This week, I’m reviewing a beer that I’ve had several times, but never reviewed. The beer is My Favorite Thing From The Beer Store (MFTT). My Favorite Thing From The Beer Store is a 5.5% Belgian Strong Dark Ale brewed by Goose Island. It’s a very different beer than the beer I’ve reviewed previously, but a good one. I’ll do my best to give it the full review treatment.

Review: 18oz brown bottle with a black label that has a picture of “Your Friend” underneath it all the time. Pours a nice amber with some carbonation. Lacing is good on this one. Smells a bit like a funky farm-beer. There’s some malty aroma but also some fruit like a spiced ginger ale. This flossy hop profile is there but not dominating. A bit of spice and zestyness are present

Review: You can tell this was the same beer that I had last night. I couldnt get any head on this beer, and I couldn’t get any lacing anywhere. The beer looks like a NON-tasted (at least from the bottle I had) beer, the head was somewhat thin and watery and only stuck around a little longer. The aroma was a definite hint of drugs, which I would expect from a strong beer that I had never had before. The taste was a bit oily, but also very sweet. The alcohol and the sweet beer really stopped me from enjoying it. The alcohol was noticable as I went down, and I could feel it. I like my beers to be a little on the watery side, but this one wasn’t much different compared to a sample bottle. The beer was a bit thin and much watery, and I don’t have a problem with it. I would recommend it to you guys however, I really enjoyed it, but I don’t know if you guys would enjoy it either.

Review: Pours a cloudy mahogany with no head, no lace. What little head there is is a little much, with some bubbly bubbles. The nose is strong and fruity



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.
