Dark auburn with a mahogany hue this ale has a light fluffy but short lived white head.

I get a lot of banana in the nose but some light caramel malt lingers in the backdrop. Very light in scent but pleasing.

The nose and taste are quite relative as banana and caramel malt is present. Simple and easy to drink, I don't consider this amongst the world's most complex of beers but it's still pretty darn tasty.
