Big banana and grain flavor. Tasty and somewhat low alcohol-usually what I buy for people who don’t like beer. They usually like this one. Has a little bit of a bitter finish, but it is mostly overwhelmed by banana.

Smell carries just enough banana to be a promising beer, but the overall taste is watery and underwhelming. Neither enough beer or fruit flavor to make drinking it worthwhile.

Aroma: Holly smokes batman it smells like ale and bananas!
Appearance: Burnt orange thin white head.
Taste: Well if i was to say it does not taste like banana bread i would be a liar it does in fact taste nearly identical to Banana bread.
Palate. Average in all regards.
Overall: I am so torn as a fantastic ale it is nothing to write home about but it flat out NAILS what it is going for with an exclamation point the bottle say it is going for the "Liquid bread" feel with banana flavor IE "Liquid banana bread" and damn if it does not deliver to the point you wish you just has some crumpets, bacon and eggs with it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden amber, with a foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of bananas overpower, with not much else discernible. Flavor is a rather different matter as yeast dominates. A faint sweet banana taste lingers in the background with some subtle maltiness. Mouthfeel is crisp, with sharp carbonation. In sum, a bit of a disappointment; would have been better if the taste matched the aroma. Worth a try, but pales in comparison to dunkelweizens for banana flavor.

A banana filled aroma with a little hop, is a clear dark golden color, tastes distinctly of banana bread, it is a smooth enjoyable beer, good to the last drop!

Pours a light bronze color with a thin white head. Aroma is bready malt with banana, spice and a small bit of pumpkin. Taste is biscuit malt with banana. Mild bitter finish. Medium-light bodied. Kind of a gimmick, but it is unique. Adds a bit of variety.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I love banana bread (but hate banana NUT bread, so even better), so of course I picked it up. The aroma is of sweet banana bread, duh, but with a hint of alcohol. Duh. A nice golden maple color, with a quickly dissipating head. The taste is actually dominated more by a sweet caramel/butterscotch flavor and alcohol, with just a hint of bananas.
It was only okay at best.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Excellent amber coloured beer, with a nice fluffy head that dies rather quickly. The obvious banana bread aroma is accompanied by toffee and caramel tones. The taste was rather metallic/medicinal that was a real let down. Overall an interesting beer but this one will be the only one I’ll probably ever drink.

Draft beer poured at Bar-Ly. Nose hits the banana bread theme spot on. Taste was like banana bread flavored water without much real emphasis on beer.
