2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Kind of reminded me of the candy called Circus Peanuts.... GROSS. But after a while, it got better. I was hoping for more spice/wheat flavors. It is false advertising to call this "Banana Bread Beer." It should simply be called "Banana Beer." But then no one would buy it. But that’s what it is.

From a bottle. Pours an amber color. Aroma of bananas and a bready note. Flavor has a artificial banana flavor. Sort of like the banana flavored "Runts" candy. Flavor is mostly banana and malt.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light amber color with thin white head that fades quicklt. Aroma is of unripened banana and light frassy hops. Taste is much the same with a one sided flop of banana. Blech! I guss there is a market for this crap but not me. To try this, mush a banana in you bud light and enjoy.

Huge blast of banana,like someone shoved a banana up each nostril, somebreadiness does make its way through,would not classify this as a "gentle nose". Taste is rather smooth banana and grain malt,you at first do get the impression of banana bread,but then this bitterness finishes it off ,like in addition to the banana ,you are now sucking on the peel,i like bananas but in a softer way

UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 Bottle. Copper caramel color with small head. Sweet aroma of banana and pie crust/cookie dough. Tastes almost exactly like it smells; faint bitterness at finish. Soft and mellow mouthfeel. Big banana flavor but not cloying or annoying. Very pleasant.

ok, lets start with aroma, it smelled like banana bread, how could it be any better. Second, there was just enough hint of banana bread in the flavor that truly made it an enjoyable experience.
