Wells Banana Bread BeerWells Banana Bread Beer

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.

Appearance: little to no head formed. Body was clear and amber in colour.

Aroma: Hops where light, got a lot of bread / biscuit and caramel on the nose. And of course, lots of banana.

Taste: mouthfeel was medium with slick texture. Got low to med bread / buiscuit and a little to med banana. Carbonation was average with a nice long dry finish.

Overall: I was very pleased with this beer. It has a long lasting flavour profile and the hops balanced the malt even though you get lots of banana. This is something that you can have from time to time and enjoy. May actually go well with breakfast.

Bottle: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with minimal retention and some very light lacing. Aroma of banana notes is quite strong with light sweet notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by banana flavours with some sweet notes. Body is a bit light with medium carbonation. Interesting at first but the aroma gets to be a bit too much after a while.
