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

Big white to off white head settles into a pretty nice lacing with some bubbles of carbonation hanging on above a clear bright copper colored banana bread beer.

Aroma is all banana pudding to banana cream pie, i think I'm going to have to seek out one or the other now.

A light dry banana cream pie taste with a slight maltiness coming through.

A dry to almost too dry an aftertaste but I like it.

I don't know if I could drink a lot of these but with the right dessert this would probably fit the bill just right.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Serving Type: Bottle Poured into Glass

Appearance - Dark/amber color almost bronzelike. Minimal head no lacing.

Smell - Contrary to other reviews I do not get an overpowering banana smell. Seems to be more of an English Ale smell to me.

Taste - Immediately pick up on the sweetness of this beer. Subtle banana flavors finally emerge. Finishes clean with minimal bitternes. Very watery at first.

Overall - I wouldnt say I dislike this beer, but was very let down despite the anticipation I had for this beer. Below average in my opinion. Would not revisit this beer.

16.9 Oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Been wanting to try this forever

A- Clear dark orange with a quarter finger of head.

S- Smells like a banana, no joke. Overly ripened banana with a lot of underlying sweetness. The banana is so dominant its really all you can smell.

T- A lot of banana obviously, in all parts of the mouth, its not overwhelming like smell led on to be. It ends clean and crisp with a pleasant banana finish. Its a nice change of pace and pretty refreshing, this could go well on its own or with a desert. A slight malt profile but no flavors really stand out.

M- Easy to drink and finishes really clean and crisp. Very refreshing.

O- This is a pretty nice beer. I was hoping that it had more flavors pop out then just banana but it was a nice change of pace that needs to be tried once by everybody.
