Buffalo Billís Alimony Ale was originally brewed for a customer going through a divorce. It has gained a reputation as one of the most eccentric brews, from reports in the Wall Street Journal and Newsweek. No longer one of the bitterest beers in America, just one of the best.

On tap at the brewpub. Color was a lighter orange with a white head. Aroma of fruit, flowers, bread and caramel. Flavor of flowers, citrus, bread and caramel. Easy to drink, but not overly flavorful or hoppy. Very earthy.

pinkzambia (1618) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Tap: Cloudy gold with a white head. Hoppy flavors with a bit of a sour aroma. It is a fine all around beer. Not bad. This was probably my favorite out of the ones I had.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Dark brown color with weird colored head. Aroma of rotten vegetables. The taste was the same with weird semi sweet karo syrup roasted flavor. Shit! 2 drain pours in one night.

This has got to be one of the best non-english bitters Iíve ever had. The bitterness was at a perfect location - not up front at the nose but yet not lingering in the throat. Even the person I was with who doesnít like bitter beer surprisingly liked this one

From notes on a bottle that was a couple of years old. Pours murky brown with hints of amber and a medium off white head. Aroma had dark chocolate. caramel, and earthy notes. The flavor had caramel malt and some cirtrus, but the surprise was how well the hop bitterness held up. The finish was all bitter. I had almost completely forgotten about this one.

Ratman197 (10906) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2007
On tap @ Buffalo Bills poured a lightly hazy amber with a large lasting eggshell white head. Aromas of earthiness, pine, carmel and a hint of grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry. Flavors of carmel, pine, earthiness, orange and a hint of grapefruit with a smooth lingering bitter finish. This is far from being the "bitterest" beer in America!
