3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear and super carbonated, gold with a huge head. CO2, light crystal malt and banana aroma. Clean banana flavor, mildly spicy, a little oxidized. Beter than expected. Well balanced and restrained.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Small white fizzy head. Spar lacing. Body was clear and very sparkling with a brown colour. Aroma was heavy overripe banana, with hints sweet malt and some bitterness, maybe from the banana? Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation. Flavour was moderated sweet with notes of bitterness. Slightly bitter finish. I thought the banana aroma became a bit too much after a pint of this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, amber in colour, definite bananaey (if there is such a word) aroma. Quite a decent taste, yes it’s all about the banana’s but to be fair it’s not trying to be anything different. There is some bitterness lurking there and it wasn’t as sweet as I expected, even allowing for the banana oveload it still has that unmistakeably Charles Wells feel about it. Not bad at all.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
does indeed smell like bananas but doesn’t taste like it. It immediately tastes like a shitty pale lager and a look at the bottle confirms its lager status. Pure crap. Also has no color. i don’t know why it says ale on this website.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 500 ml) Light grapefruit colored pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma smells like a banana popsicle. Not much else in it. Flavor is very light with a touch of banana popsicle and some bread but not much in the malt department. Sweet and smooth. Very interesting.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice amber color but virtually no head. I gave it some extra points but it is a very weak beer overall. Smells and tastes more like candy banana flavoring than banana bread. Acutally, I’d describe it as tasting more like those candy circus peanuts than anything. Very light body and a lightning quick finish.
