My bottle lists the abv as 5.2%...odd
Pours a rich amber with some significant carbonation feeding a nice frothy head with some little bits of foam left down the glass. Strong aroma of freshly baked banana bread. What more can I say? Except that I quite like freshly baked banana bread. Some more traditional malt flavour in the initial taste followed rapidly by a nice banana flavour on the swallow which develops into a nice bready flavour, and finally to a gentle hop finish. Quite an interesting flavour profile - beer, banana bread, then back to beer. Well balanced with both the bananas and the malt and hops coming through. I'm impressed with this. A nice mouthfeel without too much carbonation. Overall a very interesting, and rather drinkable novelty beer. I wouldn't exactly make a session of it, but if you're looking for something out of the ordinary then seek this out.

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.
