Huge let down! Looks great, nice fluffy head very creamy beautiful Golden body and the smell is intoxicating. I smell a great deal of banana or banana bread, I was really excited to try it. The taste starts off like a very rich pub ale and then dissipates quickly into a metallic watery disappointment. So, all things considered it is drinkable, and for the style it is definitely tolerable, problem is that it gets your hopes up.

The initial taste is like a good cheap beer/aal but the aftertaste is creamy and good

Not a great taste but definitely not bad. Kinda malty and not much else. Definitely weak. I think 4.5 ABV:(

Poured into pub pint. Golden amber color. Nice creamy head with lots of retention.

Nose is light grain, a little banana.

Taste is extremely light, but has nice bready notes. Inoffensive, and refreshing.

Smooth creamy mouth. Lots of bubbles from their "Draughtflow System." Little carbonation.

A basic beer (about the same as pale lager), but it gets a bad rap. The creamy smoothness is great, and the light bready notes keep it from being too dull. Great session ale, tall cans notwithstanding.

I didn't care for this at all. Mundane and tasteless.

The beer is clear golden color with a white foamy head. The beer has a very light aroma to it, slight sweetness, slight hop, slight metallic. The beer tastes grainy and metallic and has a lingering after taste. The beer is creamy and easy to drink but not much carbonation.
