2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color; persistent perlage. Obvious banana aroma, with vanilla, malt, flowers. Dry, a bit metallic, smooth in the beginning with a light maltiness, but harsh on the tongue at the end; maybe too bitter final. Original beer; thanks Jens (Ungstrup).

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.

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)

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Distinct banana aroma, slightly sickening. Clear copper colour, very small white head. Banana flavour, but not overly so. Quite malty with medium bitterness.

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.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light orange-brown with a very bubbly, white head. Nose holds extreme banana, some light malts. Flavor has some banana to it but it doesn’t match the intensity of the aroma. I wish it was sweeter. A tad creamy, this beer brings to mind banana cream pie. I wish the beer had more body, though. Finish is crisp. Interesting and decent, but as it is I wouldn’t put it above novelty status.

Amber and clear. Strong banana aroma with light spice. Watery body, with banana and mild spice, and maybe a touch of malt.
