3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of banana bread, just like the label said....you get the ripe banana and brown sugar. Taste is a bit watery, ripe banana and brown sugar, but a strange lingering aftertaste. Aroma was definitely much more impressive than the taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear orange colour with no head. Initial aroma is of bright fresh, bananna bread very strong, but pleasent. Mouthfeel is suprisingly light, but smooth and tastey. flavor is creamy and sweet, and of course bannanas.

Nope. This was quite awful. I really saw nothing that worked well. I think that the bananas resulted in a very metallic taste that I certainly did not want to drink. I love the concept, but I think this did not work at all.

Caramel in colour no head. Strong syrupy banana aroma. Had a distinct banana flavour. Weird and unusual beer but I did like it.

Amber-copper color with a nice lacing head. In Banana aroma dominates the nose, some yeast and malt perfume. The banana dominates the flavour too with a balanced hop, moderated carbonation, some bittery finish, little ale character. But this beer is not a strong ale...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A copper color with a minimal white head. The aroma contains banana pudding pops and caramel. The flavor contains some dark fruits and a huge dose of artifical banana flavors. Some bready notes can also be detected. Overall this pretty much sucks.

Bottle. Pours clear orangish yellow with just a few fizzy bubbles for a head. Smells like bananas and some yeast and malts. Tastes like banana and crisp malt. Sweet with a crisp maltiness backing it up. Thin body, crisp carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crystal clear dark gold to light copper colored body under a fizzy off-white one finger head. Lots of fine carbonation. Aroma is well, all bananas, what’s more to say? Very much like those Laffy Taffy candies. A little nutty and toasted maltiness below. Quite unusual flavor. Very much like very over-ripe brown bananas that have reached their height of sweetness just before rotting. Toasted grainy crystal malt base with a lingering band-aid laced finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with a bit of a grainy huskiness on the finish. Moderate soft fizzy carbonation. An odd treat. Doesn’t rate too well, but I actually enjoyed it.
