Light brown color similar to watered down root beer or sun tea. Almost no head to speak of.
Smells like banana candy and macro lager. Mainly banana candy. Not much resembling bread here.
Other than the banana, flavor profile is shallow. light malt, some hoppyness, and heavy banana flavoring. Slight vanilla, no spices apparent. Reminds me of the banana Laffy Taffy flavor.
Especially thin mouthfeel with tons of carbonation - definitely in the "refreshing beer for a hot day" category.
Overall, I like the idea here, but not the follow-through. It needs waaay more malt flavor and more spices to justify its name. This is not a banana BREAD beer. It's a banana flavored lager.

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!
