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

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

This ale poured with a nice dark coppery color but absolutely no head and zero lacing.

The scent is of banana, but not really banana bread. There's the sugary sweet but not over powering scent of bananas with no grainy malty bread aroma. That's not a bad thing because the scent is a natural banana sugar and not fabricated.

The taste is of sweet banana but no malt or grain. It's nice but not where I'd hoped it would go. The mouthfeel is a bit harsh and thin and provides an almost vacant aftertaste.

I liked this ale and will drink it again but think it could have been much more.
