Ruby in colour, sweet banana, overpowering banana flavour with sweet malt, but it grown on you.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Copper coloured beer. Smells like sweet baking banana bread, warm clove spice, baked bananas, bready and nutty as well. Noticable spicy hop aroma as well. Flavour is sweet doughy and bready. Banana tastes real, no candyish character. A well-balanced and surprisingly tasty beer. I don’t think I’d want to make a session out of it, but for a change it’s pretty good

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle. Pours clear golden with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose is banana and malts. Quite synthetic and scary. Taste has a lot of malts, some bread and again banana. One dimensional and artificial , could have been worse though! Medium and smooth palate.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
568ml bottle from Asda. Chestnut colour wth thin off white head. Banana and yeast aroma. Bit bubblegummy. This doesn’t really develop in the mouth. Too bananery and tastes of kids sweets. Some hop on end. Bit empty and boiled sweet in mouth. Not as good as cask and not something I would buy again.

Bottle. Distinct banana aroma, slightly sickening. Clear copper colour, very small white head. Banana flavour, but not overly so. Quite malty with medium bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Clear, deep golden beer with a small off-white head. Ripe bananas and notes of other tropical fruits in the aroma. The flavor is mostly banana too, but with some malt and hops. Lightly sparkling, medium body. I am surprised to learn that I like this one, even though I’m not fond of ripe bananas. (060713)

Bottled (@home, BB 2008?).
Bottle from chriso, thanks Chris. Red color, good beige head, some particles. Metallic cellary aroma. Toffee, some banana and metal. Also cellary. Banana flavors are harmless. but this bottle is a bit off, so needs to be rerated sometime.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small creamy head. Aroma of "surprise" banana bread. Flavor of banana, mild hops, and nuts with citrus-peel bitterness in the finish. Bit thin, would have liked more malt body.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of Savannah, thank you ma’am! I didn’t have high expectations for this one, but it was drinkable. The aroma is exactly banana bread. The taste seems a bit contrived and artificial, with almonds and toffee. Not bad.
