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: 9.5% ABV served with a great fall weather backdrop. Pours a dark hazy golden with a honey amber helmet. Thick, foamy white head. Lots of headiness from the beer. Glass tries to be perfect with the head. The body is thin but the central group of carbonation bubbles are very vibrant. Some sticky, red lacing. A great tasting fall beer !!

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:  Sam Adams One-Percent Ale – What a great beer!

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

I’ve been trying to find a good blog to write about the latest in AI beer reviews this year, and I agree with a lot of what other folks are saying about THE BREW BOARDS. I’m also a fan. It’s easy to write about, too. Everyone I speak to talks about it.

But I can’t do it. It’s hard to develop an angle. I don’t get into the subject of AI beer reviews because I don’t want to talk about what I’m not talking about. I want to talk about what I am talking about. There’s just so many good things out there.

So instead, I’ll be pontificating over a cake that I’ve made for someone else. It’s probably good, you’ll believe me, considering I’ve made it already.

It’s a fun little dessert, though I do claim to know the recipe. You can find it in the recipe box on the top right side of the page. Now that’s a recipe.

Reviewer: rssblau
Review: This is the 3rd stout of the season that I’ve had. I’m extremely liking this one on tap, 750 mL Glass, at Chestnut. Poured into my Duvel tulip a near opaque golden that leaves good lace. Nice foam head with nice lacing. Receivedn the Mole Man by Way of the Light. Appearance is a bit strong for a stout, but some very nice carbonation surfaces. The nose is quite hoppy, with a lot of ginger and a hint of orange. Taste is very creamy, with a lot of my favorite breadiness tingling throughout the gulp. The ginger and orange are the biggest spices here. There are also a good amount of spices coming through on the back end, but mostly the spice is fairly off-putting. Overall, this is a nice stout and I’m glad that I have drank many of them.

Reviewer: therocketeer
Review: Served from a pint glass. Poured a cloudy honey golden color. Good head and lace. The smell is of serious aroma. Some popcorn, a bit of malt, a 70% barleywine and a light hoppy strain. This is a cinnamoasted lager. Appearance is good. Very light. In fact, the skin and head remain pretty crisp and lite. Legs are a bit thin. The water is there, but is barely detectable compared to other (fortunately-) water lagers. Doesn’t look much like a lager… Hard to taste what you’re looking for. It’s of course a lager, and you should be able to put back a ton of this one.

Reviewer: ccrida
Review: Pour from draught into an imperial pint at the Horse Brass, Exotic Erotic Passion Fruit Ale is a clear gold, with a thin white head and no lace. The smell is mild and fruity, as much from the dry hopped cascade(?) as the passion fruit it seems. Not bad, but more restrained then I expected. The taste is bitter sweet, a little grainy, not much hops and a touch of passionfruit. Basically drinks like a pale ale, not as fruity or tart as I was expecting. While I didn’t want a daiquiri, I could have used more of the “real passion fruit puree” that this was made with. The mouthfeel was quite nice, creamy and very light without being watery. This was pretty drinkable, mainly due to the light body and borderline bland taste. I, however, like my beers have to some punch to them taste wise, and didn’t find that here.

Beer Flavored Stuff, BLEH!

Beer flavored packaged food items are everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Especially as we approach the Super Bowl, but in general ‘beer’ is being used as an adjective more and more, and I’m the sucker that always falls for it. Sometimes they even say ‘craft beer’, like these pretzels that I did end up enjoying. 

 

Enjoying a product, and it being a ‘beer’ product are two different things though. Take Lays Beer Cheese Kettle Chips that I bought recently. All those words are good! Beer, Cheese, Kettle, Chip! How could it not be good mashed together? 

Well, they are. But it’s mostly cheese and crunch. You get some gooey cheddar flavor, the crunch of the kettle chip, and maybe just a hint of malt and hops on the back end there? Or perhaps that’s just more cheese.  But that’s not unique to anything, and they’re not particularly beer flavored. They’re just cheesy potatoes, which are awesome. They’re good chips, but there are a lot of good chips, that’s not why I bought them.

I want to be pounded with the beer flavor. I want chips absolutely drenched in rich brown ale flavor. I want a chocolate bar that’s half porter. Gimme a salad dressing that’s been steeped with actual hop cones. 

 

Overall, Lays Beer Cheese Kettle Chips? Pretty good! Just not really a beer snack. Just take a look at the ingredients. Halfway down you get Beer Solids, Barley, corn syrup, hops and yeast. No specifics. 

Next up? These naturally flavored Guinness chips. They proclaim ‘Guinness® Flavor’–We’ll see.

Beer Review:  The Big Sour Chili beer

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

Brewing up a delicious concoction of tea and cornflakes with a little canned corn, a set of starchy fingers and a bunch of boring old paper canisters are the main ingredients in this week’s AI Beer Reviews.

Review: It had a thick yet pliable head that made for slickness compared to the rest of the beer. The smell was bananas and some apples, some sugar and a little bit of spice. It had a bit of a prickly mouthfeel that made me think of the weather. The taste was more of the same, more peachy than anything else.

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!”

Overall: 4.5
Reviewer: wifeofthedevil
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.

Reviewer: russpowell
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/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.

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.

Beers Like (or Like Stupid)

Every week, as a thorn in the side of Big Beer, I visit one of the country’s more obscure microbreweries to try and find the next great IPA or Triple IPA, and every time, I find a hoppy gimmick or a trend-busting effervescent novelty. I’m only joking. This column cover looks like something you might find on a visiting emissary from Mars, but despite all of the drinking history, this column is more about the reasons why it’s good and why you should drink it.

S: Rich dark fruit, chocolate. All fade as this warms

T: Follows the nose, dryness, apricot, pears & cherries with a touch of oakyness up front. I start picking some candi orange notes as this warms, a touch of juicy fruit gum on the edges, along with apple skins. Finishes dry with some orange rind bitterness showing up, some cocoa powder as well

MF: Medium bodied, fairly firm carbonation, a bit too dry for my liking

A decent shot at the style, just didn’t pull a the way together for me, still very drinkable Was hoping for some like an acholic version of Terry’s Orange Chocolate (if you know what I’m talking about) Having read other reviews, yeah what is up with that label? Not sure what that demon is is grabbing…

Review: Imperial stout = dark beer, no different here, its black. Foam about 3/4″ deep, tan, light brown colored, hits the bricks right quick sucka. Coffee absent in the aroma, otherwise, chocolate malt, light boozy in a good way, warming, hides abv relatively well, no coffee to it still on the mouthfeel. Sticky, bitter, low carbonation. About 1/100th of the smoke they put in rauch ur bock. Plenty chewy. Maybe some licorice. Pretty good stuff. What a bummer mine followed a Mogli. Tough act to follow, but would not heitate to recommend this beer, just like 99% of the rest of Caldera’s stuff.

Review: At last, the fine Caldera brew Ive been waiting for. I first heard of this beer on the streets of Ashland where word of mouth about a good beer is a recognized sign of an enlightened populace. With high hopes I went to the Siskiyou Pub in pursuit of this craft beer and was rewarded with a fine drinking experience. Just as word about this beer reached me before I could drink it, so too, the fine aromatic fragrance of bright floral hops leapt out at me from the glass before I could take a sip. Its not surprising that a dry hopped beer should carry such a resounding hop fragrance. Still, the vitality of the aroma was compelling. And the hops were not limited to a mere fragrance. The bittering element was concise with a touch of spice and a protracted bitter finish comparable to an ESB. All this from a beer of lush crimson with a razor thin head.

Beer Review:  Citra De Mango by JM Gulf

This my weekly column of beer reviews. I’ll try to do a review every day, but it’s not a sure thing. As usual, you can find the full review here . A review of the Krombacher Weisse will come later this week.
First thing’s first: My first review in this column was a St. Louis Cardinals post-season beer. While the beer did well in the review, I was not as happy with it as I was with the pre-season beer. My second review in this column was a I.P.A. from a brewery in St. Louis. The I.P.A. was good, but not spectacular.

Review:

A- pours a hazy ruby red with a tiny golden light clinging to it but the more I drink, the more I really enjoy it. I was thinking I WAS through the beer with the bubbles, but it’s still good. 500ml bottle pour into a Weizen glass

The aroma is like a carbonated mousse cake covered in cream and milk. The nose is very faint but very pleasing. Not how a dead man would smell, but still bumps up category of decider class.

The taste is like a beer with an epiphany and a bottle of hell. Biscuit sugar, some fizzy carbonation, and a bit of the 2nd grade alcohol.

The mouthfeel is decent. It’s definitely more mouthfeel here than a regular Dead Lager. Fizzy carbonation with a bit of the 2nd grade alcohol.

The drinkability is good. I noticed this one is good for a while and then it just hit me.

This is not like the Dead Lager but it’s still good. If you like dead lagers and want to drink well lads, walk right past me and the food might drink better.

Wonderful (if not weird) appearance in the glass at Bottomless Bistro. With cobalt head and no foam, a pale body with a thick circle of bubbles around the glass. aroma with a corn smokiness to it.

The taste was sweeter than expected. Just as you would expect, it had a very smooth and sweet taste.

The mouthfeel was a little over-carbonated. Like a cobalt (I’m a sucker), I love a high ABV lager. If I see a cobalt beer in a bottle it will probably be this one. If I do get a cobalt beer, it will be one I enjoy more than just wanting to have a sip.

Reviewer: rfoguel
Review: Sources are not exactly certain, but the beer is presumably beer from a “Nitro brewery”. The product on the label states that it is brewed by “Drink-in-Pours” (implied). This would seem to be a good way to describe their beer.

The beer pours a slightly murky brown with an off-white head. It has a bit of a strong smell. There are also some organic parts in the aroma.

There is a little bit of aroma in the taste as well. There is a slight fruitiness that is great.

There is a little bit of a fruitiness in the mouthfeel as well. You can smell the yeast in the beer.

The drinkability is good. It is a bit of a strong beer for a milder Kriek, but it is pretty good and drinkable through the first few ounces.

It is in between a pale and a barley beer. It looks good. This is a good Kriek, I could have a few more. It would be a good choice for the busy Kriek fan.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is a very typical of a Kitten IPA. Not the same hops as I had expected. Not too much head.

S: Hard to get out. Sweet malt aroma. Would have guessed a hop simply because the nose is so sweet.

T: Simulated Kitten IPA. Tons of sweetness. Hops then hit your tongue. Does not have the hop bitterness I expected.

M: The mouthfeel is light. The carbonation is extremely light.

D: I think this would not work well with salmon. I was expecting a more bitter and high carbonation palate though.

Review: 12oz bottle over a Seeliynkug, a very unique silver colored. Breast on the side of the glass against a picture of the Irish mutt blanches to Ivered which i cant understand. loads of dark tan head that feels nice and firm but isnt much to speak of outside the amber hue. Nice good crackling to there but cannt put much to it. lights of caramel, graham cracker and biscuit in the nose. Slight of lemon, coffee raisins and spices. Smells a little balanced and rich in what it’s got going on. It has a nice hop aftertaste and well done with a little dryness. Lets put this down. Not changed over time, but it definately shows how good the beer really is.
