2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden color - medium head. Yeah, it smells like banana bread alright. Taste is kind of thin and off-putting. Bananas, yeast and not much else to go on. Intereting gimmick, but Iíll pass next time.

Bottle. Dark golden colored with large, thin head. Light lacing. Very light taste. The aroma and taste are naturally, stong banana. SOmehow this one seems thinner than the one I had in the past.

Sweet nose of banana and bubblegum.Taste is more banana, but more dry than the nose suggests. Odd hop finish

The aroma is a strong candy banana. The taste is a very strong banana with the hint of bread creeping around in there. The finish comes off with a very small hint of bitter, as the commercial description indicates. Kind of a gimiky idea, but interesting enough to try.

Smells like banana bread. Taste like banana bread. Really, though, itís much better than I anticipated. The 2 oz. sample was enough though.

Bottle at The Spread Eagle, Camden. Pours amber with a goo, creamy off-white head. Exciting fruity caramel aroma, but banana is quite prominent. Flavours are moderately bitter with banana shining through. Some caramel as well. Drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Pours a dark golden color with a small white head. Aroma of some banana and nutmeg. Spicy taste, with some clove and cinnamon. Smooth banana and vanilla taste. Lots of banana, but not overpowering. Malty finish, but not a very rich palate overall. It was nice to try, but I canít see myself drinking too many of these in my lifetime.
