Nice amber color but virtually no head. I gave it some extra points but it is a very weak beer overall. Smells and tastes more like candy banana flavoring than banana bread. Acutally, I’d describe it as tasting more like those candy circus peanuts than anything. Very light body and a lightning quick finish.

Quite honestly and as the name implies, this both smells and tastes like banana bread. The main differences between the two are that this ale is alot runnier, is carbonated, and has a bright copper body with an off-white head. There’s also a touch of toffee sweetness to it. While it’s not all that bad, I just can’t see bellying up to the bar for this one.

Well, it’s about time. I mean, beers that taste like beer are all very well but what about those of us who want beers that taste like baked goods? It’s been a long wait. Was it worth it? Well I won’t be cancelling the daily delivery from Krispy Kreme. But yeah, this is alright if you’re the sort of person who ever sipped an English bitter and thought, "Hey! This could use a little banana milk shake syrup". There are a couple of obvious benefits: you can’t tell if the stupid clear bottle has caused the beer to be light-struck; and you can hardly taste the tell-tale ’burnt sugar’ effect of pasteurisation. Hell, the brewer coulda taken a piss in this and you wouldn’t pick it over the bananas. In the glass, Wells Banana Bread was a mealy tun colour with a hint of jaundice. The short head collapsed like a burst souffle. It exuded rich fumes of banana milk shake syrup - very sweet and sticky. Could be the yeast strain , I suppose, but I doubt that aroma is all due to natural ingredients. Bit of artificial help there, fellas? Certainly doesn’t have the natural smell of a good hefe. Besides bananas, there are hints of roses, husky grains and perhaps some butterscotch diacetyl. It’s sweet and slick over the tongue, and softly carbonated in the English style. Strong banana notes compete for attention with Goldings and spicy Challenger hops. The finish is dry and salty, with a mild bitterness. I quite like this, but then I kinda like those Pick’n’Mix banana-shaped candies. It’s a beer for people who don’t much like how beers taste and would rather drink something else. Now who’s gonna make me an apple pie ’n’ cream ale? Chocolate chip muffin porter? (Pint bottle from Camperdown Cellars. Best before 8/02/07)

Bottle. Dark brown with a big creamy mostly lasting head. Sweet aroma of banana, bready maltiness and sweet toffee. Flavour of bananas, toffee and toasted malts, some fruity hops, bit nutty. Quite sweet bitter finish.

Ooh, I loves bananas. Pours an amber color with a small head. Aroma is startlingly banana, almost artificially so. Slight cheap malt aroma undercuts the fruit. Flavor is bananas, cloying sweetness, cheap malts end in a BMC-like grainy finish. At least it smells like banana Runts.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with huge banana aroma. I gotta tell ya, if you like banana pudding, you will like this beer. Banana flavor is not over whelming, but it is apparent. I must admit that I expected this to be bad beer, but I did enjoy it. However, I do not think I could drink two in a row, it was a bit too sweet. It is still missing something, but not a bad beer. I would like to compare to the cask conditioned.
