I cannot believe the average for this beer is currently a B-!
A- Caramel-amber like color with (no lie) a banana-yellow whitish head.
S- The beer smells like banana bread (no question!) Behind the banana bread smell is a light smell of a standard lager.
T- The beer also tastes like banana bread. It is a strong flavor yet not overpowering. As with the smell there is the standard lager taste that goes nicely with the banana flavors.
M- The beer was had a moderate and nicely carbonated mouthfeel.
D- The beer tastes and goes down very smoothly.I would definelty have this bber again. It is also a good beer to have several of, if thats what you're looking for.

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!
