4.03/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear, lighter orange. Not so much coppery as pale orange.

Smell: Bananas all the way! Not so much in the yeasty way, but an overt aroma of ripe bananas. There us a touch of the English Ale base beer in there as well. Delicate malt balance but the banana is the star of this beer.

Taste: Wells did a fantastic job pairing the banana with a solid, yet subtle English Ale. It definitely tastes like banana bread that's been soaked in beer. Not really any other way to describe it. Hops are there at the end as well as the malt.

Mouthfeel: Pretty subtle in carbonation as I suppose is common with a lot of English ales. I drank it after it chilled for about an hour in the fridge, and it was a perfect temperature. Not syrupy, but rather rich and full bodied in mouthfeel.

Overall: I'm quite impressed with this Banana Bread beer from Wells. The flavour and aroma is spot on-not overdone at all, but definitely powerful enough to let you know that the star of this beer is, invariably, the banana.

Serving type: bottle
