3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: Very special beer. Pours a clear amber colour. Medium lasting head. From there on its all about banana. Aroma, flavour and palate is owerwhelmed with banana, which in the end actually becomes too much, because nothing else is really going on. But in small doses this is a quite funny and tasty beer.

This is one of the more exceptional beers, and one should try it when you are in the right frame of mind, otherwise failure could lure ahead. The aroma has very clean and nice banana notes, nothing artificial about it. This impression is also what I get in the flavour, where it is accompanied by notes of citrus balancing the overall impression nicely. I quite like this one, and I must admit that I have a weakness for the banana flavour....

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light amber, not much head. Sweet aroma from artificial banana. Artificial flavor as well, strange and not very pleasant at all.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
There are obviously 2 distinct versions of this. I have now drank the cask version at a nearby Chas Wells and it is fairly acceptable, though a pint is too much. There is an initially pleasant though strong Pear Drop/ Banana flavour, then going down the glass this changs to a cloying sweet perfume taste. The bottle is straight into the astringent perfume without the more delicate pear drops

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 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering light amber head. Aromas of banana, carmel and a hint of nuts. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, carmel and light banana with a crisp lightly sweet finish. Smells better than it tastes.
