I enjoyed this beer. It pours with good head retention. The smell is sweet with strong nots of banana. The taste is smooth and the banana are obvious on the palate. Feel is slightly carbonated to my opinion but leaves only sweet tones for after taste. Will be getting this again!

Not a fan of fruit beers to begin with. This had too much banana, but I can't imagine any banana flavor being a positive in a beer.

Decent but I was expecting something a bit heavier, with a better head. The beer almost has to be taken by itself, not even a pretzel, because the banana flavor is so delicate. I enjoyed trying it, but I'll not likely buy again.

Pours a nice amber brown with a head that fades quickly with minimal lacing. Smells exactly how it sounds: banana bread and British ale. Tastes like banana bread (duh). The banana hits you up front and the finish is somewhat lacking. I find the banana to taste a lot like those yellow banana popsicles you grow up eating as a kid. I wish it was thicker or creamier but then you might lose some accessability. Decent unique brew. Would have again.

A strong smell of banana bread on the nose that was slighty more subdued on the palate. It definitely has a lingering mouthfeel that emphasizes the banana bread experience.
