3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer + banana bread joined. I mean, really, how could you not like this idea? The aroma is wonderful, the brew is one of the best novelty ideas I have encountered. I could drink this at breakfast, after dinner, on a boat, in a moat, and I actually did all of those things in and around Oxford.

Love the label. Smells strongly of banana "Now and Later" candy chews. Tastes more like fizzy, bland ale. Truly unremarable. Fake banana smell.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2003 Simon found me sleeping in the garden after a night on this one. Phew! Too many bananas (I never thought I'd say it!)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: Very special beer. Pours a clear amber colour. Medium lasting head. From there on its all about banana. Aroma, flavour and palate is owerwhelmed with banana, which in the end actually becomes too much, because nothing else is really going on. But in small doses this is a quite funny and tasty beer.

Banana nose with hints of toffee, pours with a dark tawny hue, banana and toffee taste with malt undertones, full bodied with a good solid aftertaste.

It has a charakteristish banana aroma and flavor. But I would rather have a banana and a "normal" beer in stead of a bananabeer.

I smell..... banana. Oh my god, loads of banana. It tastes like banana too. There is an aftertaste of beer too. Quite like this. Couldn't eat too many though. This is a unique beer.
AC/DC rocks. Sorry couldn't help it, got the music up loud here!

Banana, banana and banana in aroma and flavor. Funny beer. To much banana, compared to the bitterness. But still very drinkebly.

There are obviously 2 distinct versions of this. I have now drank the cask version at a nearby Chas Wells and it is fairly acceptable, though a pint is too much. There is an initially pleasant though strong Pear Drop/ Banana flavour, then going down the glass this changs to a cloying sweet perfume taste. The bottle is straight into the astringent perfume without the more delicate pear drops

Nice aroma. Bland appearence, dissapointing flavour. Mnassive hints of banana (obviously) in the aftertaste. Novelty beer.
