11.2 mL bottle ('cuz this beer ain't cheap, so I went small on the first try)
Pours a clear amber, on the lighter yellow side, with a 1/2 in. white head.
Initial smell contained no banana, just some malty bread...however, banana aroma became detectable as it warmed. My recommendation: wait 15 minutes (or more) after removing from fridge before pouring. After all, the English like their beer "cool."
Tastes of a slightly spiced ale, with a syrupy banana flavor (that doesn't taste "fake"). Definitely sweet, but not sickeningly so. Also, bready - the name fits!
This beer is fairly thick and filling, very creamy on the palate and I would absolutely give mouthfeel a 5 save for two things: aggressive fizz and some wateriness in the aftertaste.
Not a very drinkable beer...unless you've had nothing to eat all day and want to get drunk on several of these. Otherwise, I would never want more than one of this dessert-like beer.

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
