2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iíd heard that this tasted artificial, like somebody squirted some extract into the barrel. On that front, I didnít think so - the flavour of banana tasted good and worked well with the toasty finish. There was something else sweet in there, though, which didnít feel necessary at all. I didnít have a problem with the way it was brewed, but ultimately I wasnít expecting much from a banana flavoured beer. It was about as enjoyable as I could have hoped for.

This is an alright beer, not overly heavy with the bananas but at the same time I donít think I could drink more than a pint of the stuff before it gets sickly.
Drank from a (British) pint bottle.

Very drinkable and tasty. This beer probably wonít blow anyone away but itís definitely banana flavored and it serves its purpose well.

The beer poured a light golden color with a frothy white head. Smelled like youíd expect heavy banana and yeasty wheat. Tastes the same. Not for me. just has nothing better going for it other than tricking me into buying it when really what i wanted was a slice of grandmas banana bread...

bottle. pours with a frothy head, rapidly disappearing. pours clear dark amber. not a lot of aroma, until tasted - and then had heaps and heaps of banana and butterscotch. slightly bitter hoppyness, and carbonated. no lasting mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Expected to smell bananas but don"t. Slight lemony somewhat earthy aroma.
Nice clear amber colour. Moderate head.
Not quite a medium body, clear taste of banana, but not overpowering.
Somewhat creamy texture with lively carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.
Generally a nice flavour. I might get it again sometime.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
*did not like would never buy!*
aroma: hair salaon perm, banana candy, some banana flavored tart demon lurks in the background. OH MY!! looks: who cares at this point, after that smell. taste will tell the tale. flavor: ICK, i am afraid i now have a banana demon in me, fake chemical banana and sun tan oil bad bad results. a faint hint of actual banana bread pops out for maybe 3 seconds after you sip it. palate: thin water. OA: oh no no no, if it was not so mild and watery i would have wanted to give it a negative number. its mildness keeps it from making me gag.

To be honest I didnít expect much from this. Instead I was rewarded with a very satisfying and easy drinking ale.
They certainly didnít 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.
