Thin bodied with a watery texture. Something is a little off in the taste. (Metallic and funky hop). Needs more body, more banana, more clove, and less metallic flavor.

Very unique smell on this one that’s hard to place, sweet and nice...not really fruity...sorta like bubblegum?? Taste is similar to smell, hard to place maybe ginger? finishes crisp and dry, wish it had a touch more smoothness on finish..unique

joeneugs (4143) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
12 oz. bottle. It pours a cloudy brownish orange color witha khaki head. The aroma is sweet with lots of bubblegum, a little bread and plum. The favor is similar with more spicy cinnamon and clove, bubblegum with some bread. Medium acidity. Just ok.

Velkyal (309) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2015
From a bottle, pours a deep deep amber, bordering on garnet, with a light tan head that settles to a steady centimetre and leaves nice lacing down the glass. Aroma is toffee, bananas, and a faint touch of cocoa, almost like grilling a banana and dipping it in cocoa powder. Taste is fresh bread, traces of caramel, bananas, and a grassiness in the background. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is evident without being prickly. Overall a good, well made, drinkable beer.

Bottle from trader joes. Pleasant aroma. Watery beer. Not bad but surely not warsteiner dunkel.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a slightly murky dark bronze color with a small white head. A sweet spicy nose, banana and pepper. Light berries, toast, some caramel. Pretty smooth as all these TJs beers are. Dark toffee. Banana ester finish. Solid.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 11, 2015
The head is somewhat lacking but color is great with a hazy dark brown. Notes of banana, bubblegum, and clove along with a noticeable sweetness; almost cake-like. The flavor is very nice as well closely following the aroma. All of the flavors could be stronger overall but this beer nails it in the drinkability category. Slightly sweet mouthfeel with decent body. For $5.99 a six pack you really can’t go wrong here.
