Brewed by:
Wells & Young's Ltd
England, United Kingdom

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

Take this beer for what it is. If your looking for something that tastes like beer then you should just walk on by this one. But if you appreciate how they came about to make a beer that actually tastes like banana bread then this is the one for you. It is unreal how they did this. Great job guys!

This beer is great for a flavored beer. Sweet hints of banana blended surprisingly good while still maintaining a classic malty beer taste. Could use a bit more carbonation. If you like sweet beers and bananas, I highly recommend giving this beer a try!
