A- cloudy dark golden, starts out with a head of a half an inch which disappears pretty quickly
S- smashed bananas with brown sugar sprinkled on top between two loaves of bread
T-tasted much less banana than the nose i was expecting more of it i actually find it balanced with the malts giving a sweetness and a slight bitter finish definitely bananas there
M- pretty decent mouthfeel
D- well how many bananas would you wanna eat? you drink this thing one time i cant see myself buying it again although the banana flavor wasnt overwhelming
Overall a very decent brew the only reason i bought it was for the novelty of it you gotta try it once with the expectations of it being an average brew that has a banana flavor

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!
