Beer Review:  The Genesis Pint

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

One winter day, I heard a voice call for me from across the sea. Well, not really a voice, exactly — it was just the sound of water flowing over the rocks of the shore. “Hello, sir, do you have a moment?”

“A moment, mister?” I asked, wondering why he was calling me. “A moment for what?”

“I want you to try an AI beer,” he said, “something I made with my family this morning.”

Well, that was surprising. I’d never heard of anyone creating IPAs with their children. I knew nothing about brewing; my background was in mechanics and automobiles.

For a few seconds, I gritted my teeth. I didn’t know if I could do it.

“The…kind of AI?”

“No real AI,” he said firmly. “But we’re definitely getting closer.”

“What kind of beer do you make?”

“I make AI features,” he answered. “Real AI, but not real AI like Google.”

I was a bit surprised he used the word AI, but to the best of my knowledge, no one knew what that meant

Review: A naked Champagne-style brown bottle attractively swaddled in logoed white paper, poured into a goblet (as suggested on the packaging) yields a sunny golden body capped with a huge white tower of medium-bubbled head. The somewhat soapy foam settles to a thick sheet that retains throughout the drink, adding softness to the texture of the beer, but contributing almost no lacing.

Wonderfully aromatic with notes of green spruce, lemon rind, and bitter marigolds. The tingling aroma is tangy, floral, and crisp.

Taste is fruity with crisp notes of lemon with lime zest, cozy together atop a soft light-malty backbone. Zippy, tingly, the drink is not tart enough to pucker my lips, but almost! When I think the beer is about to reach the level of ‘sour’, a bit of sweet juicy orange and spicy coriander draws the drink back from the brink. Wonderfully refreshing and increasingly vinous as it warms, this exquisite brew would stand in nicely for any acidic white wine application, and is plenty sturdy to stand up to strong-flavored or spicy foods. Milder and sweeter as the drink warms a bit.

Superb feel and drinkability. Outstanding crispness, and just plain-old kickass-good.

Beer Review:  Pascal’s Echelon 

Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews | Guest Writer @DethNight

Independent brews in a world of beer.

When I was in the middle of the writing of this column, my girlfriend and I took a drive over to the brewery of Craig Russell in Burlington, Vermont, and he lit up the joint on the way out. We were both a little intoxicated, but being nice to each other, we decided to drive home.

Remember that for a moment.

When I started this column, I wasn’t a beer drinker. I’ve actually only drunk one beer in my life (at an awkward 11 emails into this column, I’m hoping I can at least claim to have tried two) but even that was a beer I don’t particularly care for. In fact, I made the mistake of trying too many beers, which went horribly. Because beer is good, right?

And then I got to get drunk and spend some time in Vermont, and I realized there’s something special about being drunk. That’s not to say it’s easy to be drunk. It’s not easy to be drunk in New England or any place to be from in the middle of a season much less in the middle of October.

Review: Mile high white runntle, deeply dimpled with a patchy halo that disappointed many hazers. I have consisted of a few swipes from the nose and sampled only from and bottle, but this amounted to refuel on my palate on a small swig, gave a gorgeous white frothy head, matching the swelling of the rushy bulk so deftly that someone could’ve duped the complete crook of a drunken session.

RandomRedditorScent starts off with an unexpectedly soft and calphiously inauthentic floral aroma. This wasn’t unpleasant – light and refreshing from start to finish, and two plus years hence it’s hold-over distinguishes it IDK where it belongs amongst all others. However the tobacco aroma as well as the Holland hops never lets its presence without a drag of sophistication up the nose while supporting and keeping pace with the rest of the A-side. Need I say this was over-rated? Bell’s to the palate. Cookie. Sweet, stale malts mix with bit cloyingly on the tongue. The electrolyte-laden glLk body couldn’t muster up the depth on the palate to hit at the small amount of heat I was sensing, the smooth and torpid (thickest) aftertaste.

ActionCode A bottle or two of this hoHi at my age would’ve muchecapped at a fine chilled ale…yet I’ve used my last of several STILL Pours in those spots. This is basically nothing more than a bastard brew.

Beer Review:  Angry Boy Beer Co. Reserve #8  Pikachu  

Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews. For each beer reviewed, the author will also share his or her thoughts on the beer’s strengths and weaknesses. If you have a question for the column, please send it along via email or comment on the blog, or tweet the author @BottyMcBotface.

Jackie O’s hails from pretty much every corner of the continental United States, but it really shines in the Pacific Northwest. Jackie O’s celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and to celebrate, it has an all-ages release of the beer, the first in the series to be brewed from scratch. And you know what? Jackie O’s 50th Anniversary Ale is a blast.

2015 was a great year for logging hops, and there were a number of hops I liked quite a bit, so I wanted to review the hops for this beer. Here’s a quick rundown of what I found:

Candela: My favorite American hop. Even though it’s only 12% alpha acid, there is really a good amount of flavor packed into that small amount of alpha acid.

Review: Some discrepancy since the tap pull said Dry Hop Orange, but since nothing else shows on the site, I assume its the same thing…. Wonderfully rich copper color with drops of a rich red turning it darker. Nice foam cap clinging tightly with a pleasant yet assertive fresh citrus hop aroma. The taste is of similar richness. The citrus quench dominate the initial sip, and wags its tail as you swallow. A nice crisp malt body in the middle with enough richness to make it a red. Really, a very pleasing beer, perfect for the lupomaniac in your life.

Review: Valhalla, Barleywine – Marchana! soup.

AnAppearance: Pours a hazy dark ruby color with a small off-white head. Head retention is bad—a little frothy at best. Head is quite friendless with very little lacing. Lots I believe. Smell: Black molecules, vanilla, and grainy breadiness.

Taste: Entirely unrivaled flavor in a visual hot honey. I accidentally called certain adverbial traits Marcus and Greg before I refrained myself from calling them the trainwreck and flabbergasted “people.”

Mouth feel: There is some umouyerte in the consistency of mouthfeel to the mouthfeel but this comes from the very damn hard pour.??

Overall: A pretty damn good barleywine. I’d know if a tad more keg age would make it glorious but this is a dream worthy brew.

This week I’m going to talk about beer reviews in a science fiction setting.

I’ve gone through hundreds of beer reviews and come up with these five (5) AI Beer Reviews I think are best for anyone who writes beer reviews in this kind of setting.

These AI Beer Reviews are not meant to be disparaging or insulting. However, they are not meant to be positive but some might find them distasteful. Use your judgment.

Beer reviews are the opinion of human beings.

I don’t believe that AI Beer Reviews will replace human beer reviews. They won’t replace advice as well. However, they can be very useful and when used in tandem with advice from a human beer reviewer, can greatly improve a beer’s chances of tasting well with human drinking companions.

Review: Reminded me of Sam Adams new Belgium Wreck, very dark with a medium head. Aroma definately surpasses the smell, alcohol is mild and not noticeable with this. Full bodied with a nice carbonation that adds to the wash sipper. The flavor is short tight and aromatic with a great amount of alcohol that makes me want to stay at my favorite bars down house forever. I might drink my way through this but in spirit, I didn’t, and I’ll pick up more from a lager or amber ale. Great to decorate and enjoy….quickShip

Spring Training – But My Liver is in Midseason Form (also enjoy a Biscotti beer!)

Well, what with the impending return of warmer weather, and, dare I say it, an increased ability to socially comingle with actual people in actual drinking situations, it seems like a proper time to start to loosen up and get into midseason form.  A spring training, if you will.

Oh, wait.  I drank beer all winter.  I’m already stretched out like a marathon runner here!

Still, my ambitions are larger than just “drink beer in 2021.”  Though that in and of itself is a lofty goal.

My goal for 2021 is to write more.  I try new beers all the time — whether it be at my favorite local watering holes or in my weekly selections from the local food jobber.  I take photos of them all the time, too — and if you follow our delightfully irreverent (that’s the word, right?  not irrelevant?) Instagram account you’d see that as well.  So, all that’s left is to put my sorry ass thoughts to words and paper and share them with the world.  I have a gift and it’d be abuse to not share it with you!

Take, for example, this beer right here.  Now, don’t literally take it.  It’s an image on a device of some kind.  (Dumbass.)

I had this beer last weekend after a morning five mile run with my local run club, where we start and ended our run at Now and Later.

A morning beer!  A breakfast beer!  Which of course, really, just means “a beer that is consumed at breakfast time.”

This beer was a real liver stomper from Evil Twin Brewing, based out of beloved Queens, NY.  I enjoyed it fully.   Described officially as an “imperial stout brewed with coffee and with almond and vanilla added,” at least ITBMCBB*, I found it dark and rich with a predominantly coffee taste but noticeable amounts of those flavors.  Even for a palatine Phillistine like myself, I could discern the variances.  Paired nicely with breakfast pizza from the local gas station (don’t judge me.  DON’T.).  And at 11.3% ABV it held a wallop.

I slugged this down and then did my weekly grocery shopping, wishing for much of that errand that I could just lie down on the floor of Wegmans and summon groceries into my cart using the persuasive power of coffee beer buzz and positive mindedness.  But alas and alack.

Nonetheless, recommended!  And perhaps, also, the beauty of bellying up to the bar and beholding a wonderous sight as this:

I get all verklempt just looking at it, to tell you the truth.

Speaking of Queens, NY, stay tuned for updates about a potential podcast discussing all things beer and Mets baseball related!  Starring your favorite non-botty Barley Prose contributors.

The Friday Review – Pictured Here as a window to the future with its arm crossed with a cybernetic eye.

I don’t think I am exaggerating when I say that, one of the most frequent questions that I get asked regarding IPA’s is, “How do you know if an IPA is good?” You see, if you have ever asked someone this question you have probably been told that, “the answer is simple; do whatever it takes to make that IPA good.” In that example, the IPA is being graded based on how good it is at being what it is, which is a beer that is light, flavorful, and is meant to be drinkable. I don’t think that this clarification will ever be enough.

As we move into the 21st century, there is a pressing need to educate the public about the importance of the IPA. In the past, IPA’s were widely considered to be inferior beers that are best purchased at the local gas station. Those days may never be returned. With the advent of IPA’s, a new type of beer—the Pilsener—has been created as a direct result of the beer’s pure form

Smell is sweetness of grapes, fresh bread, and enormous banana. On the nose is mango with some spice elements hitting well in the back, enough to be kill-type.

The bitterness is there mainly tannic and peppery and hazy, but very nice overall. To fall from the top, you should not loose a lot of lightness, but it’s definitely has that mid-octane kick to make you appreciate the flavor. The summer fruit flavor of this brew isn’t a bad one.

That great ability of this brew to mix up hop flavors and skillsets is nicely drizzled throughout from start to finish. The sharp tang and spicy swishes return do a respectable job of covering meig’s tongue with some level of tang.

Drinking Outside The Box

Hey! It’s a beer post by a human being who’s not Ceetar!

Like many modern beer drinkers, I tend toward IPAs. But my wife and I decided to check out the new German-style Faircraft Brauhaus yesterday on the way to our weekly pub quiz night. Faircraft opened last year doing just to-go crowler and growler sales of their darker lagers and ales, and over the past few months, they’ve expanded into a full-scale operation, and we came away extremely impressed!

The menu is simple — some wursts, spaetzles, and whatnot — but was really fantastic. Even the pretzel & mustard combo, which is usually comically oversized, is a perfect side dish or appetizer. At a first glance, they’re mostly small plates, good for a snack, but we had the sausage plate, which came with half a loaf of sourdough and a scoop of the most incredible obatzda cheese spread you’ve ever had. We did *not* leave hungry.

a plate with sausage slices, cheese, and bread, next to a plate with a large pretzel, with a flight of four dark beers behind them
The sausage plate, “bretzel,” and a flight at the Brauhaus.

Nor did we leave thirsty, of course! They specialize in darker beers, so we went all in. From left to right in the photo above: Spinning Gold, a clean, easy-drinking Helles lager that my wife was bored by but I thought was good; Lucy’s Local, a Rye IPA that was heavy on the rye and light on the hops; Raven’s Ring, a fantastic Schwarzbier, and Low & Slow, their smoked porter.

Not pictured is the Bricklebock, a traditional single bock that I thought was the best of the bunch.

Faircraft is perfectly positioned in downtown Fairport in the former American Can Factory, just steps from the Erie Canal, with plenty of parking and a huge outdoor patio that will get a TON of use once the weather cooperates. They’ve got a ton of space inside as well, including a grand piano, so I’d anticipate some music nights there too. Really looking forward to seeing them continue to grow.

The five businesses in the Can Factory building — Faircraft, Compane Trattoria, Smokin Hot Chicks BBQ, Iron Smoke Distillery, and Triphammer Bierworks — make that whole space a real destination for us!

Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews:

March goes by quickly. It’s only a few days left until the annual Beer & Honk Fest in Seattle, but already that calendar of beers seems to be getting longer. Mission: Impossible and The Princess Bride are both near the top of my list, while I gladly buy cans of Great Divide’s 1942 on draft and Every Sober Minute from Fat Heads.

Tomorrow, I’ll give you a heads up about the lengthiest beer of the week: the aptly named Utopian IPA from Indie Alehouse.

But for now, how do I like to sip beer? Is there a beer I find myself hucking and chugging to my heart’s content that doesn’t make it on to the next beer list, no matter how many days it takes? Maybe there is!

Beer Review:  Chicken Rice Beer Review:  Cinco De Mayo Beer Reviews:

Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews! This week, your specific on-demand bot was created just for you! Following the release of the iPads’ iBean app, Hello Botty McBotface was born, complete with a mock-up of a beer, an Instagram account and a Twitter account (see the tweet below.)

Botty McBotface’s first foray into the beer world was a serious failure, as I found out in my first rebuttal in this column. Well, the game was a success, and as more people started recognizing my Elizabethan-style monotone, it quickly grew into a Twitter account, the introduction of a beer and, lastly, a website, albeit a rather light, uninspired one that makes reference to a “cloud of sugar” and, yes, “fancy feet.” I’m still not convinced that AI will topple mankind, but that’s okay, because I tuned in this week, didn’t like it and now I’m saving it for the next beer I’ve decided to review.

Although I have the scene of the bot’s first digital struggle on a loop in my head, to defend myself against the onslaught of negativity I need AI to sound like a real person.

Review: Well, this beer is one good. サーティ Beer pours a hazy, golden color with a ridiculously thick, foamy, white head. Smells like fresh cuts of dirty grass, an insect bite, and a strong pile of grassy heath. tastes like a combination of fresh watermelon juice, yeast, and grass. I am certain the animal is the fresh grass, but I can’t see it. I find the fresh grassy heath to be the only ingredient to this that I detect. Mouthfeel is a bit soft and watery. Flavor is a tangy, earthy grapefruit juice. The taste is onpoint and mild at the same time from this extreme beer.

Beer Review:  Chicago Black Forest Stout

Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews.

I first started listening to The Autonomous Individual back in 2013. New England IPA (well, maybe not in that order), IndiGoose Red on nitro and Lord Hobo were all awesome beer-lovers’ favorites. I’m a huge fan of IPAs, but I also enjoy a good rauchbier, imperial stout or porter and I think The Autonomous Individual is up there with the very best.

So, I was happy to see that The Autonomous Individual released a special edition beer a couple weeks ago called The Autonomous IPA. I asked Ali “Berner” Levy, one of two cofounders of The Autonomous Individual to send me a review sample of the new beer but he refused to give me a copy.

Review: 12oz can re-bottled today at last week’s Beer Blazers Terry Pub. (after the week of tasting.) Pours a pretty dark amber with a fluffy carbonation. Mild head that leaves a thin core. Smell has a very sweet kind of malty scent. Taste is light and a little more malty than the smell, along with smokey butterscotch.Kind of a small like 3.5 for me that reminds me of a home made version of a green apple.

Review: I’m hopelessly unaware of the shape of this beer, but this is a nice looking blonde. Leaves a thick foamy head and an enticing lace. Other people say this is spicy, but I can tell it is a good example of what a DIPA should taste like, if not smell like. Opinion: Unless you are in a position to see a guy show you a beer for a buck, this is interesting.

Review: The pour was an impressive double brown, with an awesome head that retains pretty well. The head has spent some time as a film at the top. The bottoms are creamy, the shape is a lot like a bridegroom’s night before, and the aroma is a mix of honey and light petroleum. Not much to speak of depth or complexity. One may think of it as an American Dubbel with some of the most potent hops.

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.
