Draught at Bungalow. Cloudy straw colour, nice white head. Sweet banana aroma with some cloves. Very smooth taste, lots of sweet banana, some spice and wheat. Nice, but a little too sweet to drink a lot of it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Tap at Edobori Beer Belly. Pale yellow, cloudy with white head. Aroma is wheat and a bit of lemon. Also slight herbal element. Taste is creamy malts, wheat and a touch of spice. Fizzy in mouth and nice texture. Gets creamier the further you go down the glass. Not bad. Re-rate 21/6/13. Aroma this time is creamy and a bit fruity, maybe sour plum or peach, spicy and hint of banana. Taste is a bit flat, creamy banana with a bit of spice again.
