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.

Medium yellow gold color, medium white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Medium bodied "strong" ale. Lightly hopped, medium malts. A little more bite. Good malt taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and hoppy.

I'm going to cut this ambitious ale some slack because it had an enjoy by date of 12/24 and today is 12/27 (and I bought it today at Saveon - I am a little disappointed that they sold this to me - just a little).

I opened this baby and poured it, and I couldn't get half in the glass there was so much head. Decent head too - foamy. It it receding slowly, leaving cakes of lace. Best head I've gotten in a while.

It doesn't indicate any style on the bottle, so once I could get in through the foam, I started guessing. It obviously was a huge ale and it seemed pretty reddish and hoppy enough to be an IPA, but the classification as American Strong Ale is pretty accurate. The hops taste and aroma are pretty unified - as it there were just the Tasmanian hops. This allows plenty of malt to come through, nice and darkly too.

It has a deep bitter under the booziness. It lingers nicely. I would like to try this again but a bit fresher - I don't think this style keeps well.
