England, United Kingdom
wellsandyoungs.co.uk

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.

A- pale golden witha light and lacy pure white head. I expected darker, but is uppose that doesn't mean much

S- Smells amazing! I love banana bread and thats perhaps why, but woven through the overpowering obvious aroma there are some nice little nuances. some wonderful earthy malts, sweet spices, thick caramel and a small hint of hops. i can smell the softened ripeness of the banana, its chalkiness and suddenly this feels less like a gimmick and more a labor of love. the aromas are surprisingly cohesive as well, rising and falling perfectly into an another.

T- Not as nuanced as the aroma would have you believe, but still pleasant. the banana seems a little more one dimensional on the tongue and the malt and hops fall too far into the background. there is an odd lingering sour aftertaste, but overall not bad. i feel like i want this to be a little darker and malt heavy.

M- Low carbonation, mildly sappy.

O- I think i'm dissapointed largely because the aroma promised so much, but really quite an enjoyable beer. Good as a interesting gimmick, but one that i would be happy to drink even if i just fancied a beer.

someone do a banana bread porter.

500 ml bottle. Copper coloured beer. Smells like sweet baking banana bread, warm clove spice, baked bananas, bready and nutty as well. Noticeable spicy hop aroma as well. Flavour is sweet doughy and bready. Banana tastes real, no candyish character. A well-balanced and surprisingly tasty beer. I don’t think I’d want to make a session out of it, but for a change it’s pretty good
