3.5/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: clear, deep orange body, rather like an IPA. Head is two fingers of pillowy ivory foam with moderate retention. Looks rather good.

Smell: smells kind of like malty bananas. The banana aroma walks the line between smelling like fresh bananas and smelling like artificial banana flavoring. The bottle says both "brewed with bananas" and "banana flavor added", so maybe this is exactly what is going on.

Taste: this beer has a very biscuity, bready kind of flavor going on. Banana flavor is more natural but the intensity is quite toned down from the aroma. It's not my favorite beer ever, but it is a great example of truth in advertising: this tastes just like banana bread.

Mouthfeel: light-medium body with an OK level of carbonation. I think a little bit more body would be great here; the creaminess would complement the banana very well.

Drinkability: pretty darn drinkable. I think the novelty of the flavor and the bit of sweetness would start to wear pretty thin on me, though, after a couple of pints. This is a very middle-of-the-road beer; definitely worth trying but not something I'd want too often.

Serving type: bottle
