Beer Review:  A cool, smokey, and bitter IPA

Welcome To Botty McBotface’s Weekly Column Of AI Beer Reviews. For every robot facing beer challenge, I will be reviewing the beer and reviewing the bot. I’ll also try to make each article as positive as possible. I hope you enjoy reading about the quirks of beer and robots!

This Week’s Beer: Date Night Brewing Falcon International Pale Ale

Madness:

Big Beer has never been thrilled with bots. Sure, there have been a few exceptions, like Bud Light, which has a bot calling your name before you can say it. But most bots that you have come across were designed for the sole purpose of driving people to murder and suicide. Irish breweries, like Guinness and Carlsberg, have been known to make a bot to play Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” on repeat in the pub.

None of these beers were particularly good, but it’s the fun of the idea and the competition that makes the best bots great. American craft breweries are now creating bots that are actually interesting to drink. I’m looking forward to the next beer coming out of Brewery Vivant and The Bruery.

Reviewer: Ralph
Review: Poured from a 12oz. green bottle into a North Face Buffalo Wing glass

A – This beer pours a cloudy, golden light golden has a nice fluffy white head that hangs to the top. The sediment is thick and sticky is left behind. Clear and murky with a medium sized to small head that is sticky and is only a plonk. Thick and sticky.

S – Full on the malt nose of a traditional Belgian stout. Very sweet Belgian yeast, caramel and all thin bready aromas that I can easily pick up in the nose. Some banana and wood from the Belgium yeast. Some apricot undertones also make an appearance. Some sweetmalty tannicness, slightly sweet.

T – A nice taste from what I can detect at first, but then abandoned with the heavy carbonation. Some caramel and candy on the finish, and some left in the aftertaste. The sourness of the sweetness is pretty intense. Some oak and the alcohol comes through on the finish.

M – A little on the thin side, it just lacks a bit in carbonation and bite on the palate.

D – This beer was very drinkable and enjoyable. I enjoyed this beer for most all around.

Review:

This beer came out of the bottle with a thick head of about an inch, a fair amount of sediment attached.

The smell is light with a floral hop aroma.

The taste is a very light hop flavor with a very well seasoned flavor.

The malt body is medium thick with a medium carbonation.

The drinkability is good can: i expect to be able to find this in the basement of my house. It is very drinkable.

Review: This was a sour, gummy brew.edar malts with a bready quality,but little to no depth,brewing with a hint of dark fruit. Flavors of lemon and sugar wood with an alcohol bite as well as dry yogurt bite. Another sour brew.

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.

Reviewer: ejorub
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.

Reviewer: smdsgroove
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.

Beer Review:  Barnes & Noble’s Three Barrel Beer:  “The Future of Beer”

This my weekly column of beer reviews. Every Friday, I’ll be reviewing a new beer from a brewery that I am aware of, but I haven’t yet reviewed. I’ll be reviewing a “side project” beer from a brewery I am not familiar with. I’ll also be taking a look at a beer from a brewery I am quite familiar with, but which I am not reviewing yet. I will be looking at the beer from the perspective of someone who has never had it before, and in doing so, will hopefully give you a better idea of the beer and the brewery, as well as perhaps giving you some new information that you didn’t know before. To start off, I’ll be reviewing a beer from Ale Syndicate.

Reviewer: jlindros
Review: Had this at an in-patient brewpub for a trip, and could have easily wrong-drank it. I’m glad I had to try it. A: Very dark behind a very murky, partially opaque straw colored brew. A small mainly head spilled a good bit of foam. The head was quite amusing. S: There was a bready malt scent, but I didn’t really get that. There was a mild roasted malt smell.

Review: 12oz. in the Alka Meche tap at the Stouty Grille in Westboro, MA. Poured in a tulip glass. Pours a nice dark mahogany with a slight cloudy hue. Smells pretty awesome. I’ve always had this beer in my fridge, but never had a chance to try it. It just looks really great in the glass. Taste is perfect too. It has a great taste. The initial taste is spicy and fruity. Its right at the forefront in this beer. Any other flavor takes a back seat as the alcohol warms. A bit less on the hoppy side, but still nice. Drinkable.

 

Beer Name:Bitter and Twisted

Style: Witbier

Reviewer: NattyBlack
Review: Well I was hoping this beer was a Belgian, but I was shocked to find it was a carbonation light witbier. The alcohol is well hidden and I had to break it up with the hops. What a mess. The beer is about 5% abv and I’m not used to the abv. What the hell, I like it.
