To be honest I didn’t expect much from this. Instead I was rewarded with a very satisfying and easy drinking ale.
They certainly didn’t exagerate the banana aspect of the beer, it is noticeable in every stage of this beer. Pours a dark gold with a white head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by banana notes. The flavour is pleasant; dry, malty and brings out the banana notes fully. Medium bodied and very refreshing. Excellent.

Pours a transparent golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of banana much like banana runts...malt and spices. Flavor is banana, sweet malts, bread and spices. No false advertising here, this is a interesting brew......glad to have tried it but I wouldnt seek it out on a regular basis.

This was a treat. I mean it could have been a LOT better. But this was the first time I’ve ever had anything like this. The flavor actually tasted like banana bread--which I love. My only complaint is that other than the banana bread the rest kind of just tasted like your average cheap beer. Still worth a try.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish golden beer with small off white head that retains a thin covering throughout. Well carbonated. Aroma of banana flavoured sweets and hopped beer. Flavour is like banana cake. Initially like a heavy desert but there’s a metallic bitterness that offsets the sweetness and seems a bit at odds with the rest of the package. Bready dry finish is light and moreish. Takes a while to get used to but overall enjoyable.

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.

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!

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.
