This is IMO basically a gimmick beer. It looks "ok’,smells of mild malt and artificial bananas.
This would be better on a cool autumn night with the mouth feel. Taste wise it reminds me of a beery version of a cereal Jimmy Durante was hawking back when I was a kid. Grains and artificial bananas,add in some nutty malt and a tich of syrup..There ya are.

Medium gold with thin white head. Yeasty banana aroma. Taste is primarily thin and watery, but the finish is clearly banana on exhalation. $4/16.9

Pours a light amber color with a strong aroma of bananas and malts. Taste is an interstesting combination of banana bread, yeast and malts. In the absence of a good banana bread....

Body-clear caramel body with a thin ring of bubbles and a very flimsy film of bubbles. Nose-well, I’ll be damned-it smells like banana bread-bananas, cinnamon, run. Taste-big surprise here-it tastes like banana bread-medium to high CO2, ginger, bananas, thin, Sulphur, low-medium bitterness, nutmeg, allspice, slightly astringent. Has a small medicinal bite.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large white head, fair retention with bits of spotty and stringy lacing. Dark gold color, a pretty brew. Plenty of nanner in the nose and surprisingly, the bread! Light vanilla notes as well, pretty cool! Body is light, somewhat watery unfortunately. Lightly sweet malts scratching their way out from under the estery bananna flavors. The bread is surprisingly there also which makes this an intersting brew. Dry, lightly fruity finish. I,ll admit it,s not much as far as beer goes but damn if it dont taste like bananna bread which i do love. Nifty brew!

Bottle sampled from Capones. Pours copper with a small light tan head. Aroma of (that’s right you guessed it) banana bread. The flavor well is once again banana bread, finishes with a light hoppy presence.

Bottle from Capone’s. Medium copper pour with minimal head. Aroma is banana bread, some hops, some malt. The palate is medium, with a pretty authentic banana bread flavor, plus some malty notes and subdued finishing hops.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprisingly good! I made sure to check the bottling date, and at less than a month old I picked it up. Not terribly attractive pour, light golden, fizzy, thin white / tan head. Smells like fresh beer and quite noticably like banana bread. Taste was sweet, slightly creamy, with a golden honey ale in the background. Nicely balanced banana flavor. Will try again!

Couldn’t resist this beer when I saw it in the cold beer section of the store. I drank this one ice cold. Appearance is copper orange with a creamy tan head. Aroma is 100% Banana Bread, which I love. The brew has a watery mouthfeel and plenty of carbonation. Flavor is ripe banana with a hint of nuttiness. The finish goes tart, then bitter. This ale is a fantastic relaxation beer to be enjoyed with any salty snack of your choice. I liked it and would drink it again.
