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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The commercial desription of this beer fits it quite well. I would describe the color as a bit more amber, and it has a foamy but very short-lived head with minimal lacing. The aroma is mild banana, not too strong, but very ripe with an initially sweet taste that finishes spicy and bitter. The banana is more in the aroma than the taste, at least to me, though it is there in the middle. It disappears quickly into a decent but weak finish, with a lingering bitter, clove-like aftertaste. This brew is quite dry, a little too much for my taste. It just needs something more, whether itís taste or body or whatever. I like it, but not enough to buy it again.

Bottle as shown. Poured a orange copper color with a medium white head that dimishes quickly in a trappist glass. The aroma is a pungent banana. Decent lacing on this one. The taste is an overbearing banana with a sweet finish. The sweet banana taste takes away making it almost a fruit beer and not an english strong ale.
