look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look - medium red color, clear, with good carbonation and about a finger's worth of frothy cream colored foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell - definitely smells like banana. Also smells like there's a hint of spice, like the kind you would get from a pumpkin-flavored ale.

Taste - interesting taste. It does taste like the smell, like a mix of banana and a pumpkin-flavored ale's spiciness. There's a little bit of a bite on the sides of the palate, but that's where it stops, as it's pretty well balanced on the palate.

Mouthfeel - as I'd guess from the frothiness of the pour, it's well-balanced, and leans ever so slightly on the creamier side.

Overall - very good brew. Interesting and good taste.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

served from nitrogen tap into large pint glass at Mellow Mushroom, southeast Huntsville

A: nice color, large 3 finger head that took a long time to settle down. Lots of persistent lacing

S: sweet but not overly so, whiff of banana is clear

T: Nice but not overwhelming banana taste. Neither hops nor malt really come through.

M: Medium body, very smooth due to the nitrogen

O: very interesting and enjoyable beer, quite easy to put a few away on a summer night

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Dark gold in color with a small white head.

S: Pretty much Banana bread and beer. But the beer is pretty bready. Very mellow smell. Not too strong.

T: Tastes exactly like banana bread. Almost no hop spice, but a decent amount of malts. Not too bad. The problem here is I just don't want banana in my beer. Not the beers fault at all. (Girlfriend bought it)

M: Light to medium body with low carbonation. Nice crisp finish.

O: Its is a good beer, but not for me. If you like banana bread however, you should love it.
