Buffalo Bill’s 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.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Pours murky brownish amber with some bold and brawny foam that won’t fall down. I had to wait to taste it. Citrus hops nose with carmel malt, some floral some apple in the back and medicinal alcohol. The nose is not real big. Taste is both sweet and bitter. Alcohol on the palate and a rubbery taste that I couldn’t quite get into. I kept wondering what went wrong? Went down dry but tasted like pencil erasers and didn’t fade well. I would pass on this next time.

I agree with others here, this brew is decent, but not great. Lacks hoppy aroma and taste. Drinkable, not one of the worst ipa’s I’ve had.

Bottle at SBT. Golden ale, slight citrus hop, sour egginess, dry citrus funk finish. Dry, citrusy ipa with reddish body. Quite bitter overall.

jcartamdg (2575) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours a hazy golden brown with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, slight hops and a tart/sour note. Taste is alcohol, slight hops, a lot of malt and an off/sour note. Really weird, kinda disgusting. I don’t like this beer

trevor211 (1479) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Pours cloudy light orange. A good pungent pale. It has a reasonable (east-coast) hop bite, but this one is definitely well balanced, and shows as a good standard pale. Full flavor, just a bit minerally. Good though.

Its not too bad or good. Just ok. The aroma is weak, hint of grain. Appearance is amber with no head or legs. Palate is minimal hops with a grain wash finish, kind of flat. Overall its just ok

thedm (5214) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 30, 2012
This $1.59 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light brown orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was mild hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops. An OK quaff-able brew with a so-so flavor. Forgetable and nothing special.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Orange pour with a white head. Nose is straw, grass, and grain. A bit of bread, some mild citrus peel, and just a sweet malt nose overall. The flavor is just kind of sweet with a lot of grain, bread, and toast. A light bitterness, some straw, grass, and a light citrus peel quality. Very meh.

Brouwerij (958) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a finger of rocky white head. Settles quickly, minimal lacing. Aromas is hoppy, citrus, pine, with underlying malt and hay. Starts moderately hoppy and a builds a litte, fades into tones of honey and wheat, finish mildy malty and nutty. Bitterness lingers. Moderate carbonation and medium body. A crisp mouthfeel and a slightly astringent finish. Not super hoppy, but a drinkable, enjoyable IPA.

Good IPA but not great. Ok sweet smell and sweet tasting hops. Not much head and very little lacing. OK not great.
