A dark golden beer made from a mix of pale and pearl malt and hopped with goldings the addition of bananasin the final boil gives as the name suggests a delicious taste.

Cask (Roebuck JDW, Nottingham) - Amber in colour. Sultanas and banana cake can be detected in both the aroma and the taste, but not much else is going on. I was expecting it to be a bit more sickly and sweet but it is quite nicely balanced.

Cask@lychgatetavern, Wolverhampton. Brownish red with small head. Slight aroma of bananas. Small head. Taste is a hint of bananas, toffee and alcohol (stronger taste than its ABV warrants.) Over ripe fruits and sour. Not a beer to my liking, but some may like it.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Darker than golden- I would say brown! Not a very strong smell from it but a very big hit of banana on tasting- similar to a banana toffo or banana yahoo with a slight coffee aftertaste. I rather liked it!

Theydon_Bois (16017) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 30/09/12. Clear dark golden verging on amber/brown with a bubbly off-white head. Sour nose, touch of bretts (although I dont believe they were used on this beer), some toffee. Taste largely follows the nose, sour tones, dark fruit, very slight hint of the banana in a banana/toffee chewy sweet kind of way also a little nutiness and spice. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation with a smooth bitter & sour finish. Interesting beer which I rather liked, although Im not sure it was intended to come out this way? One that was hard to categorise also. I was tempted to add as spice/herb/veg, but played safe with golden, feel free to amend!
