First thing is the malt charateristic is really weak and bland. The flavor is completely dominated by banana spiciness, tastes rich, but overly infused and artificial.

Golden honey color, with a small white head. Very much ester banana sweet scent. Clear banana in the flavor. Good bitterness. The banana is not as dominant in the taste as in the scent.
(Bottle from a friend from London)
Clear copper color, fluffy white head. Huge banana and a bit metallic scent. Fruity banana taste. Weak mouthfeel, low bitterness.

A dark chocolatey brown beer with a thick creamy head. A distinct banana nose, and a sweet malty aroma follows. Quite a dry hoppy flavour with the hint of bananas again. A rich malty sweetness to the finish. (Bottle).

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2008 You know the little yellow marshmallow banana candies you could buy for 2 cents each when you were a kid? That is what this beer smells like. And tastes like. Not good.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very strong banana flavour that tends to be rather like perfume, a little fake and exaggerated. Good, but too short middle taste, ended with another dose of banana in the aftertaste. A curiousity though not a great discovery.
