3.18/5 rDev -8.9%
Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a nice golden hue with a slighty creamy white thick fomay head. Head left a ring around the glass that lasted the entire pint (and remaining refill). Aroma definitely was that of fresh cooking banana bread. The flavor was initially very lacking, didn't provide much except perhaps for some soapy bitterness. Once the beer warmed up to probably about 60 degrees, the flavor was all sweet banana bread with a small touch of bitterness at the end. Felt a little thin in the mouth and slightly over carbonated. Was easy to drink, but the carbonation definitely made it less drinkable.

I like bananas. I like banana bread. I love beer. Will they fuck this up? Surprisingly, no. This beer pours a copper colour with a thick, one and a half finger head that lasts. Smells of banana pudding, vanilla, bready malts, and just a faint hint of pine. Taste starts out like banana bread. Big banana flavours with some malt backbone. Middle has a vanilla and pine flavour added in. Finishes like banana taffy. Mouthfeel is smooth, drinkable and dry. Overall, a beer I wouldn't mind having again.

3.34/5 rDev -4.3%
Appearance: Dark amber with great clarity. Very thin off-white head.
Aroma: Almost similar to a pumpkin ale at first. Some light spices and a clear candied banana character.
Taste: Close to the aroma but without the sweetness. Starts with a little hop bite and then bready malt with a flavor almost dead on of banana bread. However that flavor disappears quickly and leaves a very mundane Cream Ale type taste behind. Finishes slightly bitter and watery. Definitely delivers on the name though.
Mouthfeel: Just above thin in body with a tad too much carbonation. Easy drinking but I don't think it'd be sessionable because the flavor could become repetitive.
Final Thoughts: Well's Banana Bread Beer delivers on it's promise but nothing more. It's a decent gimmick beer. Would I drink it again? No, I'm not seeking it out.

Aroma: Malty sweetness; banana notes
Taste: Creamy; banana flavors throughout; finishes dry and spicy
Remarks: Pretty good overall, but not something I'd drink a lot of.
Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
