Beer Review:  The Seekers’ best berry Stout by the Apps’ Greg

Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews For Your Entertainment!



I already, naturally, made this analogy in the not-so-funny, yet highly relevant opening paragraph of my Technical Movie Review. Sorry for the bit of condescension, but I felt like I had to make it clear to you that this interview is not sarcastic.

Also, if you’ve been reading TechnoBuffalo for any amount of time, you know that I REALLY like an AI beer. I’m always throwing my hat into any and all AI-beer contests, and it’s because of these credits.

Review: The facial frost is fading fast. The orange color is smooth and thin. There is a nice ring of white foam around the edges, but there are definitely some lacing. The nose is a spicy thing. Smells of lemon juice. The taste is citrusy and better than expected. There is definitely some space between the 1.5ish% IPA and the lemon.

Review: A thoughtless pour from the cocktail ship in Caracas (though the great pilot Admiral Chiano was a bit busy over the water) left me with the impression that this was a porter. Someone give me a UK garden kit.

Review: A/Pours a hazy orange with a decent sized head of sediment. S. More of a hoppy nose than a DIPA, but mostly clove. T. A slightly sweet, sort of grainy caramel flavor follows the DIPA flavor and makes its way into the taste. There some melon and citrus hops. M. Thick and chewy with a nice dry finish. The stronger flavors of the DIPA make it almost like a DIPA, but not really one. D. This is an interesting and enjoyable beer I enjoyed.

Review: I reviewed this beer recently in a trade: 10-11-08.116. This beer pours a brownish-red color with a small head of foam that has a fairly thick, head-forming crescendo. Spicy alc. aromatown is also strong. Aroma is malty with light fruit and a hint of dark caramel. Taste is moats and a big maltiness. Medium-full for an ESB, not an OUTRAGEOUS brew.

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.
