Pours a fairly clear gold with a 1.5 finger head leaving some lacing down the glass.
Smells exactly like fresh baked banana bread. Sweet banana with some bready malt in the background.
The taste isn't quite as strong as the aroma. Still pretty good hints of banana although the bready character isn't as present. Finishes with a touch of spicy noble hop flavor.
A tad bit watery with medium carbonation levels.
I wish it tasted more like it smelled. As it is, not horrible, but the hop profile was a bit too tuned up for the banana and it didn't mix too well.

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
