A - Looking beyond the twist off I see a fairly hazy bright amber brown with a 1/4 inch of somewhat sticky head.
S - Smell is fairly pleasant with orange zest, some caramel malts, and a touch of citrus hops. Somewhat oaky too.
T - Well it's ok for an old ale, the citrus hops take a backseat leading to caramel sweet malts, some sugar cookie dough, and a touch of lemon or orange peel.
M - ABV is kind of hidden drinks much thicker for almost 7%. Mostly medium bodied.

Overall these guys seem to be hit or miss for me and this one is just OK. I was actually hoping this was a DIPA or an amber version of their "Alimony ale" since that beer is great.

Buffalo Bills Tasmanian Devil

12 oz stubby bottle, states the hops were grown in Tasmania. Pours a light amber color. Aroma of earthy, resinous hops. Some floral and pine notes abound. Toasted malts and alcohol also are noticeable. In the taste, solid hop flavor with earthy pine and resin notes. Malt character is lightly toasted and full of caramel. Has a light tang to it, and a pinch of alcohol. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this is a pretty good beer. I'd get this again some time.
