3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer thoroughly succeeded in what it set out to do, that is, to be banana bread in a bottle. There are much better beers out there, but in the exclusive "tastes like banana bread" group, this one takes top marks. It’s definitely not one that you want to plan an entire evening around...

And, that’s just what it is: banana beer. Nothing special about the rest of the beer, besides the banana taste. Very thin and weak, but it sure tasted like bananas.

1 pt. bottle. I didn’t figure the English for a banana beer. A copper color with a solid white head which fades pretty quickly. The smell is a dead ringer for banana runts. Some bread and spice notes as well. Low carbonation with a light mouthfeel. The taste is like a loaf of banana bread, including the spice. Hints of clove and cinnamon are there too. A solid bitterness in the back helps round things out. Pretty clean finish considering all that’s going on. While I wouldn’t want to drink it all night long, it is something out of the ordinary that is well put together. I would definitely have this beer again.

Tried this one out of a bottle at RFDs. Nov ’08
First off this was totally and completely different, not the type of beer I typically drink, but it totally works. Really enjoyed it, the nose is totally a banana bread, and the drink is a slightly fruity beer finishing with an aftertaste of exactly like the bread itself. Definately worth a try.
*It’s 100% a gimmick, and barely a beer, so if that’s something that would bother you, I’d advise you stay away.

thought i already rated this one, friend brought to the brewery from England. nice copperish color with some good foam, nose is definate banana, with some malt on the back. flavor wasn’t even too bad was expecting a too sweet but was decently at least to my and my brewers palate balanced, a little bit fake but still ok

Copper amber with a good sized off white creamy head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet rich banana with some
Flavor is sweet banana with a very creamy mouth feel, dry malty body. Banana sugar flavor lingers lightly. Not overdone and surprisingly tasty. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

Taste more like Banana Bread than any other beer I’ve ever tasted. If you find a beer that tastes more like Banana Nut Bread you should drink it instead.

Dark golden pour with a nice white head. Very subtle banana flavors come and go as you pour and smell the beer. The banana flavor is not too overpowering, but one can definitely taste it on the palate.

Bottle Pours a clear deep amber with an off white head. The head leves quickly, but produces okay lacing. Has a nice sweet malty aroma with a lot of banana. Taste is pretty good. It definetly has a banana bread flavor. Like drinking a desert. Good mouthfeel and light carbination. Decent finish and a medium body. Kind of gimmicky but its tasty.
