bottle. light copper pour wi many rising bubbles to thin foamy off white head. hops, spice, and malts all drowned out by the banana bread aroma. light and clean. slightly metallic. light hops and malts, wheat, banana and spice. better than I expected.

If you like banana bread, you’ll like this beer - unless you prefer banana bread on a plate as opposed to in a glass. Smells like banana bread and tastes like banana bread. Nothing subtle or complex,

Decent sized frothy white head of fine bubbles. Distinct banana aroma along with a bit of dry grass, some nutmeg and some bready malts. Color is a medium golden orange. Sweet and crisp flavor with more bananas. Actually, it tastes very much like banana bread. Light spicyness and dryness. Crisp finish with some lingering bready malts and spices. Interestng but I really don’t think that this is an English Strong though.

(19.25oz bottle, BB 30/11/07): Pours a golden brown color, fizzy, with a big white lasting foamy head. Very strong ripe banana aroma, a little hops, but mostly bananas. Banana malty taste, banana aftertaste. Bottled water taste. Not much else. Interesting, but this will be my last.

1 pint bottle at The Queen Adelaide, Wandsworth, 17th June 2006. Cracking aroma of banana bread (reminds me of my holiday in Barbados) but an unispiring appearance: flat, bland amber pint. The flavour is swamped by banana, with some yeast and hops hidden underneath. The finish is that of a normal bitter. Overall, glad I tried it, but I wouldn’t drink this regularly. Feel free to add to the score if you adore bananas!

Non male anche se mooooolto bananosa soprattutto al sapore (al naso un po’ meno). Bevuta al Pub del Duca il 25 aprile con Sergio.

Amber with a decent white head. Aroma of bananas and brown sugar. Flavour of yet more bananas with some malt before a hint of a bitter finish. One dimensional.

BANANAS! bOOM!!! Intense banana aroma up opening the bottle. Not much head, no lace. Flavor is very banana and even surprising a touch bitter and dry. Not a great finish. Having this at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, WI USA

Different. Buying this one, I knew it would be different. I wasnt expecting anything great, I was more curious than anything. Opened it, and poured it immediately. Wow, great aroma of banana, nuts, bread, and light citrus. Smell is the best part. Appearance was ok, not much head retention or lacing. Taste is ok at best. Rich in malt and a bit of Goldings to back it up....kind of funny tasting. Worth trying once.

[400-20070705] 1pt3floz. Yeasty banana aroma with malt. Clear, bright orange brown body with a big medium-lasting fluffy off-white head. Strong banana and creamy yeast flavour. Smooth medium body. Nice texture, interesting to try -- it really is like liquid banana bread.
