Got this bad boy in my stocking this year. Oh, mom.

Poured into a pint glass for desert. Dark amber, clear, not much of a head, not much lacing. Bonus points for a cool bottle though.

Well, it smells pleasant. Like banana flavored runts and a little beer.

Totally tastes like banana - banana candy. No surprises here.

Leaves a little bit of sugary aftertaste that I wouldn't describe as desirable.

Overall I'm glad I drank this. It's a novelty beer that's worth a sip or two, maybe not a full pint.

Appearance - Pours a light orange/copper color with an inch thick head that lasts for a couple minutes.. Has thick, creamy looking lacing.

Smell - Exactly like banana bread.. smells delicious. That's all I really can smell.

Taste - Strong flavor of coriander and banana bread. Sweet with ginger, nutmeg, clove, and has a little bit of an alcohol bite at the end. Has a slightly bitter aftertaste..

Mouthfeel - Has a thick body with mild carbonation.

Overall - Definitely something different.. I'm glad I tried this. It doesn't taste like the smell but it's still good.

Bomber poured in a Pilsner glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Finger width head. Minute long retention of white head. Amber color.

S- Banana for days. Very strong flavor. Malty and sugary as well. Quite a smell.

T- Banana bread...obviously. Very well done at what it was trying to accomplish. Acrid taste finish. Weird sourness that isn't ideal.

M- Medium-thick bodied. Well carbonated and lingering feel.

O- Great novelty beer, not great in substance. My girlfriend liked it though...so win?

16.9 oz bottle into a pint glass

Ap- lighter than I expected, fizzy and clear w/ a white head about 1/4 inch. A little bit of lacing.

Ar- who would have thought, bananas? Sweet malt and a little bit of spice, maybe cinnamon.

T- not as much banana flavor as the nose would suggest. Cinnamon and biscuity malts on the finish.

M- very carbonated, almost too much. Light body.

O- decent beer, especially for the price. Nothing great though.
