2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours darker gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of...banana bread. Nuts, ripe bananas, and liquor in the nose and in the taste. KInd of grainy, and the banana taste seems a little sickeningly sweet towards the end. Overall, much better than I expected.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours a dark orangish red color with a decent sized head. aroma is sweet - definitely banana-ish with malty characteristics. flavor is surprisingly not too overwhelming with banana flavor. tastes like a banana liquor. not bad, though I’d been eyeing this over and over at the beer store, intrigued by it, though I probably won’t buy it again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light amber with an ok head. Smells of banana bread, however scent is slightly strong and artificial. Taste is dry and nutty with banana flavors present.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another fine selection from 99 Bottles in Federal Way. Pours gold with a quickly vanishing head. Banana is apparent at the first sniff, then blends to a light fruit scent. Strong banana flavor, with a balanced malt. Hop finish is a welcome contrast to the sweet flavor. The medium palate works well for this beer, as a thicker one might overwhelm the tongue. If you’re looking for a beer to go with a fruit dish, this might not be too bad of a choice. But I’ll have to try that combination to be sure.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colored, minimal foamy head. Aroma is banana boat sunscreen. Flavor is light malt and sweet banana. I like the idea behind this beer, and it didn’t turn out too bad. Soft on the palate, somewhat light bodied. Overall seems alright.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper with very little head. The bit of head that is there is white foam but very quickly dissipates. Aroma is definite bananas. The first thing that comes to mind is Banana Boat sun block. Definite malts. Flavor is of banana and sugar with hints of vanilla and walnuts. Banana bread is the best way to describe the flavor. What is surprising is that it really isn’t an overly sweet beer....banana flavors and spice but balanced by the malts. Medium carbonation and light body.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
19.25 oz bottle-A clear copper body with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of bananas and slight malt. Taste of this light to medium bodied brew is of banana on the front end then it goes into a different banana taste on the back end. Does finish dry. Not a bad brew.

It’s not what you think, basically so get an essence of bananas but otherwise it is an okay English beer.
