3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle pours copper with minimal off white head into a pint glass. Very banana-y aroma with nutmeg, cinnamon. In the taste, the bananas are quite artificial, as a friend pointed out, like a banana Popsicle. Slight spice and wet bread. Weak finish/weak body with a slick mouthfeel and a medium level of carbonation. Interesting, not bad.

I heard mixed opinions about this "interesting" concoction. Most notably the differing perspectives of the banana flavor. Specifically, whether it was a real, fake, or rotten banana flavor. I found a bottle at a local retail shop and decided to find out for myself. First off, yes (for those of you who are wondering) it actually tastes like banana "bread?" beer, a true mix of both. I’d have to say that the banana flavor itself is a bit of a mix between real and fake flavoring, but there was no detectable trace of "rotteness." (such as in Sam Smith’s organic strawberry beer.) Perhaps different batches do, but not this bottle. Its, um... worth trying once, just to say you’ve had it. Not bad, but... well, not bad.

they mean business when they say banana bread. It tastes like my mother just took it out of the oven and put it into a bottle

Bottle. Aroma is bready and malty with a hint of banana. The flavour of the banana comes through in the taste together with a touch of bitterness. I kinda think I shouldn’t like this but I do.

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!

I guess I’m biased but I loved this beer. It is literally the closest thing to drinking banana bread. Pours with a thick, rich head that just unleashes an aroma of fresh banana bread. The flavor does change from taste to after-taste and the banana flavor conflicts with the hops a little bit. If you like banana bread, you have to try this.

500mL Bottle -- Pours brown with an off-white head. Where it smells just like banana bread it tastes more like banana peel. The flavor is bitter and off-putting.

Banany królują w smaku i zapachu, do tego dochodzi solidna słodowa podbudowa. Mimo tego nie zabija słodyczą, goryczka wyrównuje doznania. Wybitnie pijalne i wciągające. W wyglądzie kolor miedziany z utrzymującą się białą średnią pianą. Mimo zdominowania przez banany zachowuje charakter piwa. Całkiem niezłe

Pours out dark amber with a thin white head, and the banana smell and taste is there in full. It’s almost like drinking a banana flavored soda with just a hint of beer at the end. I could drink this all day

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is yeast, banana, and hay. Taste is bananas, vanilla, walnuts, and bread. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Sweet on the tongue, not a bad aftertaste, and the beer is slightly oily. Not bad
