Big white to off white head settles into a pretty nice lacing with some bubbles of carbonation hanging on above a clear bright copper colored banana bread beer.

Aroma is all banana pudding to banana cream pie, i think I'm going to have to seek out one or the other now.

A light dry banana cream pie taste with a slight maltiness coming through.

A dry to almost too dry an aftertaste but I like it.

I don't know if I could drink a lot of these but with the right dessert this would probably fit the bill just right.

Serving Type: Bottle Poured into Glass

Appearance - Dark/amber color almost bronzelike. Minimal head no lacing.

Smell - Contrary to other reviews I do not get an overpowering banana smell. Seems to be more of an English Ale smell to me.

Taste - Immediately pick up on the sweetness of this beer. Subtle banana flavors finally emerge. Finishes clean with minimal bitternes. Very watery at first.

Overall - I wouldnt say I dislike this beer, but was very let down despite the anticipation I had for this beer. Below average in my opinion. Would not revisit this beer.
