2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. Fuck this book. The pour is a am dry golden pour with a thin bubbly collar of gray head and almost no lace. The aroma is almost puréed bananas. There is a sweet malt, but this smells like fucking banana flavored Laffy Taffy. That’s not okay. The flavor is all banana. There is a light metallic malt and strong banana. It’s definitely not good. It could be a lot worse, but it’s very singular dimensional and plain. It’s sweet, metallic, and banana Laffy Taffy. The mouth feel is terrible. It’s really thin and watery with hardly any carbonation and a lingeringly banana dominated finish. This beer sucks. I’m not sure how it’s considered a beer, more than a banana flavored malt water. Jesus.

330ml bottle into schooner glass. Strong aroma of banana (surprise!). Orange/copper beer with thin white head. A few lazy bubbles. Thin body, slightly zingy. The finish is more banana with a touch of grainy maltiness. Not as much fun as you think it might be.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On pour got a very fizzy drink, a lot of carbonation. When it settled down a decent sized frothy head appeared, looked decent. Head looks good, nice and creamy looking.
Head does die a little and there is some slight lacing.
The colour was dark amber, with a tint of red, and overall the beer looks the part…..
The aroma is of…..well, bananas!
Lovely clear, fruity smell, gorgeous, and I dont even like bananas, ha ha! Strong but not overpowering, very pleasant and very tempting.
Smells of banana bread, with a hint of toffee……
Taste: Well it does exactly what it says on the tin, its all banana
A beer with banana, tastes like beer with banana! But its lovely, very smooth, doesn’t taste a lot like beer at all. Very sweet, but still smooth enough to drink. A bit of caramel noted as well.
At first I thought the alcohol content of 5.2% wasn’t apparent, but I think it does kick in near the end.
Everyone in the house had a try, went down a storm, all liked it.
There is a slight hoppy aftertaste that is a bit urgh, and it could do with more body, but overall very smooth. It is different, so hats off to the brewers for trying something new, refreshing and all good. I am not sure you could down a lot of these in a session, but definitely would be great to sip on a hot day. Recommended, and looking forward to trying this beer out again soon.

Bottiglia 50cl. Bel colore dorato con schiuma bianca, leggero sentore di banana, così come in bocca malto e banana con finale piacevolmente luppolato. La birra non è assolutamente stucchevole ma anzi molto interessante.

This is an interesting beer. There is a faint banana smell. Good color and decent head. The taste is fine. Definite banana.

Very simple palette, banana is there but not very exciting. British in flavor

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium, dense light-yellow head, not very stable over copper beer. Nose of ripe banana and toasted malts, honey. Sports a nose not unlike some commercial faro’s. Dry-ish, gouache paint, giving it a bit artificial flavour, and just a vague hint at banana(skin). Finish is slightly bitter. Light body, feels rather better carbonated. Ho-hum.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Damn book. Aroma is banana, metallic, bready, medicinal, eh. Appearance is golden copper, light beige to off white head that fizzled away quick, clear. Taste is bitter malt, the banana flavor is there and weirdly not on my tongue but in the air behind the liquid, metallic, some hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, crisp carbonation, banana and metal aftertaste. Overall, not as bad as I thought it would be, but not even close to being good.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma bem presente de doce de banana, bem atrativo, colarinho bem formado, porém de pouca/média duração. No paladar, um maltado bem sutil, leve sabor de doce de banana, e um amargor presente, algo meio artificial também. Para mim, valeu a experiência, mas apenas para conhecer, não compraria novamente.
