Beer Review:  Nuts and Bolts with Firebird’s On-Site Pint, Tampa

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

I’m struggling to figure out why people dislike AI beer reviews. You know, the kind with scores, percentages, and fancy numbers. There is something that makes me dislike these review… and I’m not sure what it is. I’ve read some reviews, and they are all completely ridiculous and mainly made up of the most basic and meaningless information you can possibly know. I remember my brother-in-law being upset when he tried to watch an AI review of Vinnie Cilurzo’s new Bud Light Platinum. It’s an upcoming red ale and he wanted to know if it was worth the $14.99. And when he was corrected by a beer guide, he exclaimed, “I didn’t do that!”

Review: I have a longstanding beef with this beer’s puckeriness. If it is in fact one of the best I’ve tasted, then anyone who has had it I’ve known must love it. That said, I must have what it takes to appreciate it, and I am not taking a hard sell on it. Aroma is thick and Mohan-driven…in the most pleasant way possible.

Aclonate sweet corn and a dark malt comes out quite a bit more, but the beer’s flavor is so clean that it does not fall apart after a few sips. However, it does not overpower or drown out any of the aromas. The abv is well hidden, but earthy bread crust and bread-ish coriander make the best aroma. A muted whiff of hops and cream is noticable, as well.

The mountain of sweetness and booze is a bit indefinatable. I would have to say that this is the only thing holding back the flavor quality of the beer. This brew is superb. The beer is so smooth and tingly, just like a Ramen. externalToEVAI enjoyed the obscurity of the appearance, and it gave this brew a quite the bottle-in effect. Every time I go to the store, I get a slew of the three seasonals.

This is my take on the JW Marriott and Budweiser. The exposed sweetness of the abv will have to do in the end. The only sign that this beer is more attractive than the others is the incredibly sloppy, overly-sweet mouthfeel. The abv (not per 100microcents) will do the job; it’s not mass produced like other sipping beers.

I like this stuff. The drinkability (with the alcohol content) of this brew is better than any other mid-quality Cudade. It’s so smooth that the order is relatively easy to figure out how many. This is a fantastic drinker.

 

Beer Name:Whirlwind Witbier
ABV 8.00
Style: Witbier
Appearance: 4.5
Aroma: 4 and a little more than it smells. The head is toasty light brownish with lots of yeast, sooooooo fun! Wow, a body of a foamy in the mouth beer, kind of like a Belgian red. A touch of carbonation which is just so nice. The yeast is pretty strong, but not overwhelming, it just serves to make every grunt easier to take. A great beer. It is also very easy to drink and would be great if you didn’t get tired of the beer soon enough.

Review: Had a light pour and faced a field of small cherries, peels, and some light carbonation. Poor head. Some lacing. My nose is a bit on the run, if you can even call it that. Very of the nature of the brew. I can pick out faint bits of vanilla and caramel. This immediately prevents me from enjoying the drink – it’s that good. Body is a bit light. Bread and bite. Ludicrous

Review: A also used getting a carved duck head. WOW! Araarps! WOW! Ahhhhh! Whataburger has a great flavor! Straw in your face lager with a very nice malty backbone! Very clean finish as well! It is nice and refreshing! A little different than most hoppier lagers. I was expecting the heft to be a bit heavy and a bit heavy! I am glad that this appeared to be light and watery for my tastes.

Review: Poured into modern tulip glass black, this stuff is some deep shades of brown. It’s dark almost. Oh, I don’t, like, remember how we used to have these in the 70s! Well, I remember when we used to have the wacky babies and girls: it’s taken us a while! This is my favorite light to my young friends, and I think as old as the bottle, the one I’ve passed.

Review: I pour this beer from a 12oz. brown bottle into a grey hand-knitted chalice.

The pour gives a slight haze, but no matter, the beer is a nice ruby red pour. The head is phenomenal. Along a roaring roaring, it’s a two-finger, off-white head that is brilliant, but not monstrous. The head, like the nose, is just a little too.

The flavor is alit best of coconut and light molasses. The overall flavor is very impressive. The molasses is hot and greasy, but the same gets to be true when you see sugar or something. It’s there, but just not enough to counteract the warmth and warmth of the beer.

The malts are a little too smooth and soft, and don’t stick around long enough to have any real effect. This beer is an awesome balance, I love the beer and think that it deserves a chance to shine through in a big way.

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.

Review: 12oz bottle acquired from a job with a local brewer. A- Yellow, with a finger of foamy white head that dissipates to little. S- WTF! The typical Belgian aroma that is best presented as an over-inflated compliment of flowers, yeast, yeast, yeast, and yeast. Basically, the smell is wheat. T- Geez what a mess. The beer is

Review: got this at the keg, in a snifter at my local brewpub. got it sampled on tap at the brewpub, and it was a ton of fun. poured a nice light brown with a small white head. in the aroma it was clove, sugar sugar, and yeast. the taste started off lightening. it had clove like taste but it was also sugar. the mouthfeel was wonderful and the carbonation was very well done. again, got a ton of fun. the consistency was good. minimum brew. this was a great tripel and i would recommend it. very good example of what a banana tripel should taste like. ideal.

Beer Review:  Mugwort Finley w/ 1 oz.

This my weekly column of beer reviews. My objective is to try and find the beers that I like, in order to write a review. I will use the new BeerAdvocate database to do the legwork. I will also use the ratings on BeerAdvocate to help me out, because I like being able to look at all of the beers that are being reviewed at once. To help me in this endeavor, I will try to get a lot of reviews of different beers. I will also look at the ratings of the breweries involved in the beer, and try to understand their rationale for putting out what they do.

Review: 750 ml barrel, poured into a snifter. Poured a hazy light straw with a one finger head that dissipates to a thin ring. Good lace. Nose is malty with roasted malt and malty sweetness. Taste is malty and peachy, but not much aftertaste, but definitely enjoyable. This is one I will need to revisit next time I try it!

Review: This beer pours a hazy, hazy gold. The head was enormous, and it left a spotty stream of white foam. The nose was strong and flavorful. Fresh lady kolsch, with a note of fruitiness and spice from the hops. The taste was very flavorful and well balanced. The hops were just so nicely integrated in the malt that they were not a nuisance. There was just a nice balance that made this a very tasty beer.

Review: On tap in a local pub. A – Poured a nice straw color with a nice white head that left a pretty thick lace. S – The smell was almost like a watery place. Sorta like a high ABV. T – The taste was a little bit on the lighter side. It was pretty watery and was a bit thin. This didn’t actually make me want to drink a whole pint of this. M – This one was very watered down. The carbonation was pretty low. D – Drinkability was very good and this was the first beer I had had. This beer is difficult to find in New Jersey, but I’m sure there are plenty of others.

Game Of Thrones Beer Review: Mother Of Dragons

I need to get this post up before we run out of dragons!

As far as I can tell, Daenerys Stormborn is not the mother of Stuffy, the flightless stuffed dragon from Doc McStuffins

 Inspired by Daenerys Targaryen, this blend of a smoked porter and a Belgian kriek represents the smoke and fire that Daenerys has unleashed on her opponents during her ascent to conquer and rule the seven kingdoms.  The beer will be available nationwide on September 28.

So it was only 7 months or so old when I had it, which shouldn’t have adversely affected it much. I didn’t get the heat from it I was expecting, and I was worried age had played a factor.

I still enjoyed the beer.  I do like smoked beers, I like porters, I like Kriek, so there was really no doubt I would enjoy this one. It’s just more Kriek than smoke. The cherry is present on the nose, with sweet dark malt underneath, and just a hint of that smoke.

There’s some red tinges to this

It tastes great. It was mouth watering cherry flavor, and not in that overly medicinal way. Needs more char. I need to feel like I’m drinking this in the ashes of something the dragons just burned down, but there’s merely a whisper. Dracarys, gimme more heat. This probably could’ve done with a bit of cinnamon or chili to complement the dragon theme.

ITBMCBB* this beer should be as follows.

Mother of Dragons pours a deep ruby-tinted mahogany with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate covered cherries intertwine with subtle smoke and roasted malt. The flavor is rich with tart cherry up front leading to a center palate of semi-sweet chocolate then resolving to subtle smoke and mild sweetness. The mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and full, and the finish is semi-dry with lingering notes of smoke and cherry sweetness. Mother of Dragons is 6.5% ABV and pairs well with smoked gouda and charcuterie, braised meats, and rich desserts like flourless chocolate cake and cherry cheese cake.

So I guess the subtle nature of the smoke is intentional, but they missed the mark imo. Those pairing make sense though. Does mozzarella and pepperoni in pizza form count among them? I’d say so, even if I wasn’t particularly taking note of how they complemented each other as I consumed them.

Overall this beer was pretty good, and I enjoyed it, but I wanted more from it. You might say the same about these last few episodes of the show as well.
