Hmmm; I had my hopes up for this one, and was let down by the seeming un-naturalness of it.
The beer poured a beautiful light translucent golden brown, with longer lasting head, full and bubbly.
The banana smell was immediately apparent and predominant, with very little noticeable hops.
The taste was the letdown. Instead of the expected sweet creamy breadiness, the beer seemed thin, and malty, more of a malt liquor that had been artificially flavored. I've tasted real banana esther in my favorite doppelboch, and would prefer that next time. Some people hate Blueberry beer, claiming its too artificial. That was the case here. Hops so light as to be unnoticeable, and no character other than the banana flavor; no real sweetness, and even a little bitter.
Felt relatively light, not medium-bodied, nor creamy. Too thin.
Probably won't go for it again; might be nice mixed with another alcohol like vodka, as a flavoring for a mixed drink...It lacked hopping and body.

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
