1 pint 3.25 oz bottle. The brew pours a nice golden to copper color with a finger of very dense head over top. Clarity is very good and there is a very steady curtain of bubbles visible. The aroma is nice sweet banana, with caramel blended in there along with a doughy malt base. I have to say that this one smells like what it says it is. Taking a sip, I get a more earthy banana, kinda like a bruised banana, flavor with a more substantial dough and breadyness to the malt. What surprises me most is the strength of the hop in both flavor and bitterness. It is nice and herbal and very pleasant in the bitterness, but it just doesn't seem to fit the rest of the brew. Mouthfeel is a very healthy moderate with a light carbonation of fine bubbles. It almost as a bot of a creamy texture as well. Overall, I have to give them credit for making this one truly a banana bread beer. I think the hop profile doesn't fit the rest of the beer, but it is still enjoyable. I think the banana is balanced and not over-done in the brew.
