Often have this along with their Chocolate Stout. Lovely little flavour to it, and it’s clean and that. Below the banana is a pretty polite regular session beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Rich copper-orange colour, no fizz, no head; Tastes like freshly made banoffee muffins - very ripe bananas with a toffee sweetness. I’d drink it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Actually does have a nice legitimate banana aroma and flavor. This flavor is mixed with nice spicy hop and a it of malt backbone to come out with a pretty even-keel brew that isn’t bad at all.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden/copper colour with a medium white head that thins quickly. The aroma is of bananas and other sweet, fruity esters. There is the slight flavour of bananas and malt with a slightly bitter aftertaste which is not overly palatable. Overall this beer is nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
It really didnt taste brilliant. I could probably finnish off a half pint but no more than that. The palette too wasn’t brilliant and left a horrible after taste. I found that it really doesn’t go well with a donner kebab with garlic Mayo. I was quite disappointed really. Although it started off well, until you could really taste the bannana. It would probably go very nicely with bannana cake/ bread or anything with banana in it. Overall, I wouldn’t drink it again

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 mL bottle. Pours amber with a thin white head. Weirdly metallic on the nose, then bready malts and synthetic banana flavor. Dry and thin with moderate carbonation and a tinny finish. Awful.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Bronze color, with a small, beige head. The aroma is fake banana, cloves, brown bread, and syrup. Very sweet, with a little yeastiness. Medium body, and a bit sticky. Overall, this a tasty, but gimmicky beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of banana, honey, touch of grass, slight biscuit and bread, hints of yeasty notes as well. Taste is a mix of bread, biscuit, some caramel into hints of grass, nice banana and banana bread notes with a hint of nuts, finishing sweet.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This dark golden coloured ale hugs the palate with great intensity. Its malty aroma is complemented by the gentle nose of Banana. Its flavour unfolds with a sensual sparkle and a smart crispness, which balances its aroma perfectly. Tropically fruity; its ripe banana flavour, emphasised by a hint of bitterness, comes from the addition of real fair trade bananas and finishes with an emphatic, steely dryness.
