Clear yellow-amber pour with a two finger off-white head with decent retention and nice lacing. The smell is exactly what one would expect...banana bread. I was expecting just bananas, but they nailed the bread part as well. The taste follows suit with a really nice, surprising spot-on banana bread flavor. Not artificial at all, and the spiciness of the hops adds a nice twist. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with nice balance and none of the artificial aftertaste I had expected. And it's not sweet and syrupy, but very sessionable. Overall, this was very surprising. Yeah, it's kind of a novelty, but it's a well made beer and I'm glad I tried it.

Purchased in Canton at Holiday Market
A: pours a faint orange with a carbonated head that dissipates fast and leaves zero lacing. Active carbonation and holds a small ring of head thru the experience. Nothing spectacular.
S: Best part of this beer is the smell. Fresh baked bread, crystal malt, and of course B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
T: Thin candied malts... bud light esq funk to it.. artificial banana mostly, but tastes much much better a bit warmer. Out of the fridge its crisp and tart. Light and very carbonated. Not too bad.. but dissapointing to me. Wish it had more body and fullness. Its just too... thin and simply... lacking.
M: Not much here, comes and goes. Thin and crisp.
Overall wish this beer had more depth and flavor. Too crisp and clean! But its worth picking up to try.. definitely a good beer, just wish it was an outstanding beer !

A: Yellow golden with a kind of dark red hue to it. Lacing is awesome.
S: Banana definitely. Some candy and light malt as well.
T: Banana bread, wheat, nutts, butter, honey, and spice. An awesome taste in my opinion.
M: Lighter side of medium with a nice creamy feel. Goes down so smooth.
O: Though the beer has not-so-good ratings; I like it a lot. It's a solid brew that is good for just relaxing and enjoying a nice flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
