Had this one on draught at the House Pub, St. Charles, Illinois. Beautiful ruby pour with a thick tan head, slightly spicy and vaguely sweet, the banana really comes through in the finish. Emmencely drinkable!

Not a bad beer, however could be stronger and definitely thicker to complete the flavors.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
10 ounce tap glass at Will’s Northwoods in Chicago. Take everything they write in the brewer’s description and prepare to drink the opposite. This beer reminded me of a cold pour of campbells soup with the taste of soggy bananas. Flat palate, foggy yellow, spoiled fruit taste. Unenjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Banana scent is not quite as strong as expected, but still has a presence. Flavor is a mix of banana, mild citrus, and a slightly carbonated finish.

Cask. Deep honeyish golden colour with minor head. Aroma is biscuits, banana, some herbs and mild fruityness. Flavour is similar with a well lasting bitterness. A bit thin.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Devoured at a Wetherspoons Beer Festival in The Shrewsbury Arms (2011).
This is banana heaven for banana lovers, looks normal, but just one sniff and you know it ain’t a standard UK bitter.
Really sweet in its cask form, and a lower ABV at 4.5% compared to that listed on this page (5.2%).
A Banoffee Pie sort of beer!
