Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Bottle notes product of the USA.

A very large and foamy, large bubbled, and off white head that falls at a good clip right off the pour. A very clear and nice dark orange amber with large cola like bubbles stuck in places on the side of the glass with some small hard to see rising carbonation.

Nose is estery yeast, almost fruity banana, and very faint light toasted malts.

As the beer hits my palate there doesn't seem to be much going on at first. A second sip brings out a little more. Banana taste seems to come through a little bit, a little touch of cinnamon and sharp brown spices. Good simple mouthfeel that is neither to wet or syrupy, and pleasant carbonation.

Overall not too bad, but banana is not a favorite of mine, and I would probably not have this again compared to other beers.
