Beer Review:  Kiwi Cream Ale I mixed the Kiwi Cream Ale with Sierra Nevada

This my weekly column of beer reviews. In each post I’ll be reviewing one (or more) of the beers from each brewery that I’ll be visiting in my upcoming trip. A quick look at the full list of breweries here. Also, I will be doing a preview of each of the beers on a different day in the future. That will be posted on the first day of each week’s column. I’ll link to the reviews here, but you can also use the Twitter hashtag for those events.
Beer Reviews

Aroma: 4
Palate: 4.5
Taste: 4
Overall: 4
Reviewer: Domingo
Review: 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Clear brown with reddish highlights and a half inch of foam. urban. Looks like a really well done swimsuit.

Smells like sweet caramel, toast, bread, and a little bit of sour.

Taste: Great taste! Thick, sweet caramel covered with good sourdough and bread. The sourness comes out very well in the middle of the taste and the end is very sweet and not like caramel. There is nice bitterness in there as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Quite smooth, caramel, wheat, and some alcohol warmth.

Drinkability: Heavy, but worth a try when you like the saison and expect some depth.

Review: 1. 125ml bottle.

A: Poured a 2 finger foam head. Head stayed around for twelve months.

S: Luscious aromas of spices, dry alcohol and bread.

T: Rich, sweet overtones. Shadow of a tar that you could taste.

M: Thick in the mouth.

Drinkability: I think this is a fairly good lambic. I would drink this on a reasonable night, but not in the smell or flavors where I’ve never noticed the spicing. This is a bit of a good beer. I would love to have some more in my fridge.

Smell: It’s got a nice aroma of dark fruits, caramel, molasses, and a reatpment of sour cherries.

Flavor: It’s got a nice sweet taste too with a fair amount of caramel sweetness to the finish, along with a hint of construction.

Mouthfeel: Light body with some spiciness to it.

Drinkability: It’s tasted alright, it’s nice and I’d recommend it to at least try it if you haven’t.

Beer Review:  White Horse Steambrewery’s Ales

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: 10 oz bottle with the word “Carbonated” on it. The color is a nice yellow with a nice head. There is a slight head after every sip. The smell is a lot like a ketchup-laden light bread soda. They taste has a caramel sweetness up front. The mouthfeel is spot on. The drinkability is perfect. This is a one of the best brews I have had. I would classify this as a “little sweeter, a little lighter” but I don’t…

Reviewer: mynish
Review: I normally get a bit annoyed at beers that don’t have a lot of time to age. I bought it on sale coupon tickets and then picked it up, tried it at room temp and drank it up. Not a word of good quality. This beer had a really nice softness painted onto it however. I remember as a kid, drinking this before I was a teenager. It was a big hit. This was the moon oil. A: The head was small, with a little lacing. The smell was well done. It had a nice ryeess mixed squelch, with a nice combination of rotten coffee and a little bit of a spicy note. T: This one’s a bit sweet, some mild spice, a little bit of some more liquor like alcohol. The taste was a little too sweet, with alcohol making an appearance. M: This is very full, with a cool touch of just a tad of coldness adding a touch of sour on it. D: I like this one though it wasn’t too great. It’s a more interesting style of beer that I haven’t had before. It’s a good one.

Beer Name:J.W. Marriott Dunkelweizen
ABV 9.00
Style: Dunkelweizen
Appearance: 3
Aroma: 3.5
Palate: 3
Taste: 4.5
Overall: 4.5
Reviewer: JacobJ
Review:

Appearance – It is a cool looking Dunkelweizen, smooth and creamy with a hazy yellow tint to it. The head is thin, but gives a nice retention. Exceedingly smooth.

Smell – A great blend of oak and mild sweetness.

Taste – A strong forecast of Munich style dunkelweiss. Not as sweet as the I.B.M.M. with its strong caramel content. It has a very distinct maleness to it with a touch of the oblique implied character. Its smooth, classic and is a true Steinbier. Its not like a kwolle weisse or a weissebier. Its a German style dunkelweiss.

Mouthfeel – Medium, body.

Drinkability – I can see being a bit of a jerk here, because this is a weiss. With the clean refreshing feel and the aromatic nature of a Dunkelweizen, I can imagine the entitlement for a screwed up weiss. It’s a nice little beer, and a unique brew.

Beer Review: Artisanal Two-Stage IPA with Chai Tea and Ginger

This my weekly column of beer reviews. This week I’ve got the totally delicious Ghost Stalker. I’ll talk about the beer, but I’m going to also talk about what it means to me. The history, the story, the vision. The beer is a tale of a hellish time in my life that took a terrible turn. It’s a story about the power of a loving and resilient group of friends. It’s about how a brewery was born from a homebrewer’s need for a place to showcase his work. And, perhaps most importantly, it’s a story about how that brewery is still going strong.

Style: English Bitter
Appearance: 4
Aroma: 4.5
Palate: 4.5
Taste: 4.5
Overall: 4
Reviewer: lllm
Review: This is a unique brew. It is an English Bitter that is approached from the side of the road. You would think that this would be a pretty obvious beer because it is an English Bitter, but on the other hand it was a pretty interesting brew. This will compliment all kind of foods that are described as “English Bitter”. It has a nice complex flavor. There are some flavors of cherry and apple that are very tart and would suit any food. The crispness works very well with the drinkability. I will say that this is a keeper and when it is cold you will find yourself wanting more. Would be good on a warm night. Maryland Hathcock is an English Bitter.

Reviewer: udon
Review: 12 oz Brown bottle with clear neon unicorn logo on the bottle. Appearance: It’s a very nice looking Dunkel lager. The cloudy green color is pretty. The head was decent and hit the brewthroat. Smell: This was a bit of a letdown. When peeked at all the other dunkel beers I’d normally say “No problem.” But the smell was just too much. Taste and mouthfeel: This was a good Dunkel lager. The flavors mellowed as the beer warmed up. The mouthfeel was just a little too watery and left a little too much of a lemon bite to the beer. Drinkability and beer: This was a pretty good Dunkel lager. It is also one of my favorites in Germany. I wouldn’t drink this again.

The mouthfeel was rich mocha-covered sweetness. The drinkability had a citrusy quality to it. The drinkability was pretty good.

Beer Review:  Navel Dreamer

This my weekly column of beer reviews. This week I’m looking at a beer that I have not yet tried and have not had before. This is the beer review for Hatteras Brewing Co. Hatteras Brewing Company is located in Hatteras, NC. The brewery was founded by the Hatteras Clan in 1986 and was the first brewery in the area to produce “accoutrements” for the African Savannah. They have had a steady stream of success since then, being awarded the title of best brewery in the North Carolina area for 10 years in a row. They also are the only brewery to have ever had 3 consecutive gold medals at the World Beer Cup.

Review: The first drink was glasses of beer that have been sitting in a beer fridge for the past two years. In this case, I don’t mean really old. They are newly acquired, these are a beer that I am drinking. They tasted of chile peppers, lemon, and hops in the form of a brew that is quite interesting – the bier. I do rather like the style (6.6% ABV) but I do not like it as much as some other ‘biers’.

Smell: Bitter, sweet, slightly sweet, as well as some bitterness with some synthetic hops. Taste: Nice bitterness, like something from old standard. Mouthfeel: Pretty average, slightly thin, most of the high point doesn’t stick. Drinkability: Overall, a pretty good London Bitter

Palate: 3.5
Taste: 3.5
Overall: 3.5
Reviewer: BeerReborn
Review: Oktoberfest is, in my opinion, the best option for this style of beer. A summer beer and a good balance between the alcohol, the 10% abv, and the strong amounts of hops. The hop character is very modest and very caramelized. The roasted malts/wort beer feels rich but very smooth. Frau Herslenkamp, barrel aged in wine barrels, will be very interesting on tap. There’s a little hop bitterness to the beer that I can’t get rid of. This is not a bad thinker. It’s got nice flavors, and I really like it. The alcohol is quite high, so expect to drown out the drinks.

Beer Review:  Viva Piñata IPA Ice Apricot

This my weekly column of beer reviews. This week’s beer review is the Troegs Stompin’ Ale. This beer is brewed by Troegs Brewing Company out of Brainerd, Minnesota. The beer is a 4.7% ABV imperial stout and is released on the 4th of July every year. Troegs Stompin’ Ale was brewed to celebrate the 4th of July. The beer was brewed by hand in an old brick brewery that was turned into a brewery. Troegs Stompin’ Ale is available in both cans and bottles.

Review: Praise be to God! I have never had a beer that I could accept as a real Black Ale. Unfortunately Metalic’s The Devil Run has been my homeboy since it was first released, and they suck. The Black Ale is the Brass Sure, the Devil came out with a Pineapple, but the flavors have been really bad for it. This one is sick. Heavy pineapple, Black Raspberry, Vanilla, and some hops. The finish is pretty good but the aftertaste doesn’t quite master the quality. Recommended only drinking a single or something to warm up.

Review: I recieved this beer as a gift at the baby-sit. It was from a local brewery, and I got it as part of a shipment of 10 Hefeweizens. I picked up a bottle from them at the farm. Thanks for the opportunity. Pours a nice thick cola colored head over a clear golden hue. There is a nice thick, creamy head that sets very tight on top, and very little dissipation. Somewhat of a minerally aroma. There are a little spices and dry fruit, but it’s quite tame. Tastes consistent with the aroma, and it has a nice sweet flavor to it. There is a nice muted maltiness to the taste, and it has a dry finish but it’s balanced quite well too. Mouthfeel is very good. Cheers!

Beer Review: Strawberry Chipotle: A purple cola that’s not really a cola

This my weekly column of beer reviews.  I review beer on a subjective basis.  For example, if I’m reviewing a beer that I think is “beer”, then I consider it beer.  If I’m reviewing a beer that I don’t consider beer, then I don’t consider it beer.  I’m not a judge.  I’m just a beer reviewer.  I’m not going to look at the actual ingredients list and say “this is beer”.  I’m just going to look at the label and say “this is beer”.  You’re welcome. This week, I’m reviewing a beer called “Flower Beer”.  I got this bottle from a local homebrew shop and I really like it.

This my weekly column of beer reviews. I will be posting my thoughts and thoughts on the beer and the brewery and also what we can expect from the brewery in the near future. For the first time I will be reviewing a beer that I have never had before. This beer is the third release from the brewery from last year’s Sculpin Imperial Stout. This one is a limited edition release and is a blend of six different varieties of sculpin, which is a smaller fish. The blend is named Sculpin Imperial Stout. There is a 50/50 blend of the six varieties of sculpin. There are three varieties of souring agent used. There are three different types of hops.

Review: This came out last Thursday afternoon on tap at the Balelight Pub & Pub at the Starting Line (now Val Adams), and I had to try it.InstoreAndOnlineThe head was not fluffy and not intense, which I find a great thing, because this beer is ridiculously drinkable and amazingly smooth.arge is a highly talkative person, so I am sure that this beer is extremely sensitized, but this makes it feel as if there’s a TV in the room. This flavor is all of the usual phenomenopsis – spicy, citrus, crust. About every mouthful of the beer you can taste the presence of ginger and coconut, but this brew finishes sweet, with some sustainment when you start towards the end. This is definitely well paced in strength with this array. The malt makes all of that available, giving the beer a sort of depth you’d never know with how light and complex, but it’s still there.�It’s also quite good. I don’t want to ever taste

On one side of the label is a exertion of some sort. Quad connections of lace-holding braids and some hoops of lace as you swirl. On the top, “VIMA” is printed green with no real handle for identification. A very hard to read triangular sign. On the bottom, “4 L” are printed in full while the clarity is all in show. bubbles rising. The beer itself is an opaque dark amber. Some head with some lace, but not much head is seen as reflection is relatively weak. Many ice crystals pop up as the body of the beer in fact, thousands of tiny bubbles.

Review: This was a great 1000bln@ lager on tap. In a variety of locations over a four-day weekend. Great. A solid Schwab offering.Spawned a smallish head that hit my snifter heavy, neck and “thicker” near the edge, while doused in cheap 32oz silicone dimples. Retention was acceptable enough. Colors were hazy golden lager as it warmed. Very mild head. Too light. brown/copper in the face, nose and throat. Licorice, bready, barnyard coming through. A very medicated experience. Good stuff, awesome style that won’t go out of its way to tick your fancy any day..

Review: I was drinking one of the few sipping beers in the city, and thought a sipping beer would have included a look at the beautiful “B” cat.

A: Poured a hazy amber with a thick, off-white head that covered the glass in a thick layer of foam. The head did not last very long, and then quickly fell to a thin film.

S: An explosion of yeast, a powdery yeast, and Belgian Candi sugar inside my mouth.

T: The taste was sweet, but not thin. A good amount of malt, than toasted bread, and yeast. I could tell that the alcohol was not present at all. This was a very sweet beer.

M: A bit thin on the medium side, but I suppose I could drink more than one. D: Very enjoyable beer that I can’t see getting much better from the bottle.

Review: A: pours a hazy hazy copper color with a no real head at all. This pour left over a thin ring of foam that was completely gone in no time.

S: french fries and some nutmeg. Some citrus hops in there as well.

T: a very well balanced pilsner, with almost zero malt in the taste. More of a biscuity flavor as a beer is typically born out of. The malt flavors are obviously present, but the hops are subtle in the taste. Some caramel and a slight pine flavor as well. I get a grassy, grassy malt flavor as well.

M: a nice euro hop flavor that I couldn’t really taste at all. There’s a mild lightness to the taste that is interesting. Overall, I’m a bit disappointed.

D: the beer is a bit shy at best for the style. I’m glad I got to try it.

Beer Review:  Vanilla Bean Darkened Cherry Chai

This my weekly column of beer reviews. I try to give you a good taste of what’s out there and why I think it’s worth trying. This week I’m looking at the Glimpse of the Ocean beer from the new brewery in New Bern, NC. While the beer is a bit on the small side, it is a solid brew and well worth a try. I’m always excited to try new beers and so it was no surprise when Glimpse of the Ocean was one of the first beers to come through my door. When the beer arrived it was a bit of a surprise that the bottle was one-half of a double IPA. I’m not a huge fan of IPA’s but I do appreciate a good one so

Review: Had a beer in a 3-ring bier glass. It was a dark brown color with a white head. It was VERY heavy and solid. Even though the beer contained about 2/3 of a pint. The head was almost a foot thick. The beer was almost falling apart. Most of the dank-ness in the nose was not detectable. There was so much stooppence to the smell I couldn’t smell it. The beer was creamy and smooth. I could feel the core of the beer as the brew became more solid and the head got thicker. The beer had a light taste to it. Overall, the beer was light but not off-putting. I would definately drink it again.

Review: Wow! This was a really great beer. The beer is light in color, with a fairly large, fluffy, white head. This has a nice, sweet aroma of sour grapefruit. Even better, the ale feels a little bit like a sweet caramelly ales. The hop bitterness is quite pronounced with plenty of plum and grapefruit. This is a really good beer

Review: This is the second beer I really enjoyed from a beer company. I saw a few bottles in the Cantillon shop, so I figured I’d pop a few of these out after this. This is the first beer that I’ve tried that doesn’t qualify as a buttload of hops. The funky nose and flavor are not that impressive, but it’s got a lot going on. The spices and citrus juice notes with the hint of hoppy character are still quite present. The body is a bit thin, but it is well blended. Very pleasant and tasty.

 


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 have not yet figured out how to train an algorithm to generate me beer photos.
