Pours a clean yellow to orange-ish color, with an off white head. In the aroma, it smells like banana Runts. In the taste, banana bread, with a pleasant note of cinnamon. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry ripe banana in the aftertaste. Just like what it's called, banana bread beer.

Single bottle from the LCBO. Pretty much had to try this, even though my "gimmick beer" radar was reading off the charts.

Poured into a short conical glass, enjoyed at a recent beer tasting.

Looks like your standard pub brown ale. Dark chestnut, thin off white head.

Nose is caramel, brown ale malt, and a distinct, sharp banana flavour. Overripe or artificial, can't tell which.

Delivered what it promised - a beer that tastes somewhat like banana bread. Or rather, a weak brown ale with over strong artificial banana flavour. The gimmick side wins this round. Thin bodied, sticky. A case of the English clear bottle ale effect.

Try one for the novelty, but I won't be getting again.
