4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tried this one out of a bottle at RFDs. Nov í08
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.
*Itís 100% a gimmick, and barely a beer, so if thatís something that would bother you, Iíd advise you stay away.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 Iíve ever tasted. If you find a beer that tastes more like Banana Nut Bread you should drink it instead.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a darker colored beer with minimal head retention. It was a fairly simple beer for me. It smelled like banana and it also tasted like banana. I really enjoy the flavor of banana in beer, so this was a pretty decent beer for me.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Freddy. Pours a brown color with a small beige head that quickly diminishes to a fine film. The nose is deceptive with banana, spices and then is followed something chemically with cooked vegetables. The taste, like the aroma, gives a good first impression; there is banana, allspice, and cinnamon, but then gives way to nail polish remover. The mouthfeel is a bit thin. The finish is dry and shows chemical off-flavors. Overall: I had great expectations of this beer, I love banana bread, but this brew just did not deliver. I also take issue with the fact that a 5.2 abv beer is a strong ale.

bottle thanks to zinisterís friend. Pours a dark amber with a beige head. Nose is of fingernail polish. Yuck! Taste is not much better. definitely tasted like chemicals and an intense artificial flavoring. Mouthfeel was thin. this was a drain pour!
