4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and rather light amber color with almost no head. Nose is extremely banana laden - there is no mistaking the smell. Bananas don’t smell this much like banana. Taste is a little sweet, but not overly so. Fruity and refreshing. Damn.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Grand Epicerie. Smells like bananas! Like banana pastel life savers. Clear and yellowish. Tastes like watered down banana water, whatever that is. Soggy palate. It’s good if you don’t think of it as a beer. If it was weird homemade schnaps, it would be good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle just to try it out and I regret that I did. The banana flavors are too sticky and overwhelming to enjoy this. Very sticky sweet finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy yellow-gold with a thin white cap.
Aroma is banana, malt...
Taste is very sweet, age-blackened banana....slight tartness...syrupy.
Remarkable strong banana taste, just comically over-the-top sweet.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is tartness and a slightly odd banana sweetness. The flavor is fruit, banana sweetness and a sour/tart finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, thanks to Leighton, split in the confines of J98 LLY in the ’heading home’ mobile tasting event, 23/03/13.
Pale golden with a thin white head.
Nose is sweet sugars, artificial nana akin to chewy nana sweets, toffee, sweet sweet sweet.
Taste is just stupidly over sweet ! Think banoffee pie with a load of sugars heaped on it topped with a Nesquik banana milk shake piled aboard then some more sugars!
Medium bodied but sticky sweet and syrupy, lightly cloying.

Cerveza dorada transparente. Muy poca espuma. Olor a plátano, evidentemente. Sabor aplatanado, dulce y ácida.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Dunnottar Wines, massive thanks to Lorna..... It pours light gold with pretty much no head. The nose is sweet ripe banana, banana sweets and maybe the faintest hint of tanginess (perhaps I’m imagining this). The taste is dominated by sweet banana, banana bread and light tanginess with a sweet finish. Light-medium body, lowish carbonation and cloying, sticky mouth-feel. One-dimensional and tastes more like a nasty soft drink than beer......However if you like sweet banana and are a pervert this may be the beer[sic] for you.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours ultra clear with a very small head. The nose is straight up banana candy. Not even real banana. The flavor is way to sweet and no tart what so ever. Like drink juice with banana candy dissolved in it. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, the body is light an the finish is abrupt thank god.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium sized and fairly quick changing white head on top of a clear yellow colored beer.
Aromas of mostly (over)ripe bananas, with some hints of dusty yeast and some malty tones.
Flavours of bananas, malts, some light creamy spices and herbs, some bitters with a sprinkle of just some sourness, some banana candy sweets (but not irritating) and a hint of grains.
Aftertaste of some bananas, yeast, light dry, some herbs and a light floral touch.
Low to medium carbo, medium body, soft creamy and very light spicy mouthfeel and a creamy texture.
This is one of the better banana beers I have tasted.
