Notes / Commercial Description:
Long ago, ale was known as 'liquid bread'. We've used our long history of creating the finest malt blends & added fair-trade bananas to awaken the senses with a seriously fruity, rich, yet surprisingly versatile banana bread beer.

An inspired brew made with our own natural mineral water & fairtrade bananas. Tempting Banoffee aromas & flavors are balanced by the silky richness of a masterful malt blend & the peppery spice of the freshest, ripest hops.

Originally I thought this was just a novelty brew, but that would be a disservice to this fine beverage. It's got a strong copper hue, with a swell of distinct banana aroma. Pours a nice foam head, about two fingers. Taste is pleasant to say the least; strong banana, nut, bread flavors. I like to compare it to a meal in a glass. A refreshingly original beer—top marks.

Pours a bright copper color, small white head. Terrific aroma of bananas....but that's about it. Flavor has a hint of banana. My wife hates beer but wanted to try this, she actually drank 4oz of it. I'll leave it in the store next time.

Drank this many moons ago, pre-beer reviews, on a poor recommendation. Never thought i'd see it again.

Pale clear beer. Saturated golden tone, deep brassy color, occasional rising bubbles. Thin layer of foam and skim.
Aroma is spot on banana bread, caramelized sugars, ripe bananas, sweet cakey banana bread. Hard to tell if it's artificial or not at first, but the taste confirms it. Tastes like a pale lager with artificial banana bubble gum flavoring. Dull crackery malt aftertaste. Light bodied, thin feel and carbonation, super bland and hollow. Finishes fairly dry, thankfullly. If this was sickly sweet it would be another story. A flavored novelty beer, nothing more.

Thanks to Dustin for the can!
