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.

Sweet banana taste, just enough malt and grain. The banana is up front and fades as it goes.

Taste rating in words: Candy bananas that's all there is to it

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine, two finger white head with great retention and thick lacing. Aroma of bready malt, bananas, light floral and toffee hints. Flavor is bready malt, authentic banana, fresh whole grain bread, light grassy hops. Finishes with spot-on banana bread flavor, down to a little vanilla. Nice medium bodied with light to moderate creaminess. I'm surprised I haven't reviewed this before. It was one of my introductions to the weird world of off-beat beers and an instant favorite. I haven't seen it for years, and thought it may not be as great as I though so many years ago. The initial taste is, good, with great banana flavor and sturdy malt, but a little attenuated and light; I wanted a bit more flavor depth. But then the finish has that remarkably true, real banana bread flavor that really is pleasant. Not for the banana bread intolerant, but a delightful idea and well made beer that lives up to its name.

My absolute favorite beer. I'm so happy I took a chance on this randomly at my local grocery store. It can be expensive and hard to find at bars, but whenever I come across it, I will always choose this beer.

A nice, sweet but sharp taste. Lovely colour with a nice banana flavor. Best served chilled.
