A - Medium Brown body with low retention tan head.
S - Of course this beer smells like banana. It's more like banana laffy taffy (fake banana) but it still smells good. Slightly nutty/grainy smell as well.
T - The taste of banana is not as trong as the smell of it in this one. It does taste a bit nutty, slightly sweet and slightly bitter.
M - This one is more on the carbonated side and not terribly smooth. Same mouthfeel as any other traditional ale.
D - Pretty easy to drink but nothing standing out enough to make me want two. This beer is good but doesn't have anything unique about it aside from that mild banana smell and taste.
Notes - This one is worth trying. It's different and a good unique flavor experience.

Poured from an 11 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass. A moderate pour produces about a one inch creamy white head that settles down to a continuous 1/8 inch froth that coats the sides. The beer is an orange-amber with moderate carbonation.
Plenty of banana bread aroma, with spice, including some coriander. The flavor is even more like banana bread, and I sense a strong base of biscuity malt, wheat malt, and plenty of yeast funk. The banana flavor doesn't come across as contrived and is far from overbearing. Maybe a little apple in there somewhere. Fairly light in body with a crisp finish that includes a little bit of lingering spice and perhaps a little herbal hop bitterness.
A pretty unique brew and worth trying. This four pack of 11.2 ounce bottles was a bit pricy for my budget at over 10 bucks...but, oh well!
