The Bitterest Beer in America.......maybe when they first started making it...Jeff brews outstanding Ales...much, much better at Buffalo Bills Brewpub than in the bottle, which is made by Portland under contract. Orion1800 (53) - Piedmont, California, USA - AUG 20, 2007
This has got to be one of the best non-english bitters I’ve 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 doesn’t like bitter beer surprisingly liked this one jbelkin (5) - USA - MAR 28, 2007 does not count
I’ve had it on tap at the brewery and it’s everything everyone described - fresh - so it’s not for everyone but it’s a swirl of flavors. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
Poured into a 12oz shaker glass. Aroma is veryhoppy. Colour is a dark amber. Flavour is bitter at first, with some unique flavours I cannot put a name on. Mouthfeel is medium full body. Good lacing down the glass. Finished quite dry. but a good bitter beer I really enjoy, every time I visi buffalo bills beers I am suprised by the local brew. zool (41) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2001
I really wish I could find this, since the times I had it, it was great. Very unusual and rich flavor. Excellent.

Pours clear copper, pretty full head that lingers nicely. Nose is gorgeously hoppy, tropical fruit and citrus, mostly, with a good caramel underpinning. First sip is sublime, a really well-balanced IPA with a nice sweetness upfront and then a nice bitterness that creeps up and takes its time going away. Medium body, solid carbonation, a bit creamy and oily. Really damn solid IPA. REDDOGICE (243) - nantucket, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2008
A decent brew. Drank at my grandmother’s funeral reception. Off color head with a dark brownish/reddish color. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Alimony Ale is a very slightly hazy amber ale with a few small particles in it. It’s topped with a blotchy, light khaki head that fades to a film and leaves excellent lacing on the glass. It smells like pine. Yes, pine, citrus and light grain. It’s quite light bodied and foamy. The finish is clean and dry. It’s pretty bitter but not really hop flavored. This is like an old school IPA. Pine resin flavor becomes juniper by the finish. There’s a little hint of fruit that almost seems sweet and a note of lemon peel. It’s nice, bitter and easy to drink. monkeychugg55 (1096) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma of orange flesh, , caramel, and floral notes. The flavor is like caramel orange juice upfront, with more fresh orange and floral hop notes coming out. Finishes with bitterness that is slightly underbalanced (not in a bad way), and still retains the orange character. I don’t think I’ve ever had another ipa that had singled out fresh orange flavors as well. Not even Tyranena Scurvy ipa does it this good. A little one sided, but with all the other ipas out there, it’s nice to see something unusual like this. Finhead (1782) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2011 A clear, copper pour with a fluffy, off-white head. It has a pine aroma with some caramel and a hint of citrus. The medium body has a soft texture with average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with more bitterness toward the semi-dry finish.
