2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours rust colored from the bottle with a big creamy head. Excellent lacing. The aroma imparts a fair measure of banana, bread baked with brown sugar, and a hint of clove. Taste is bitter, verging towards metallic, and the bitterness can be a bit deadening. Still, the beer works surprisingly well with food, especially spicy food, which draws out some of the banana sweetness. Works well with salsa. The palate is unfortunately watery in places. The finish is long and lightly sweet.
Drank many of these over the years, and this is a decent beer, but there are better alternatives out there.
