Had this one on draught at the House Pub, St. Charles, Illinois. Beautiful ruby pour with a thick tan head, slightly spicy and vaguely sweet, the banana really comes through in the finish. Emmencely drinkable!

Cask during a Wetherspoon Beer Festival in 2011. My notes from the time say that you can certainly taste the banana!

Memory banks rate after having the godawful bottled version. Cask was a darker brown, nice foamy white head. Smooth, and had the bready qualities and full body the bottle version lacks. Wouldn’t drink it all night, but not a bad beer.

On draft. Cooper color with one finger head. Smells just like banana bread. Slightly boozy smell too. Taste isn’t as strong as the aroma. Not a bad beer. Not as sweet as I was expecting.

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured dark gold with thin head. Bready, wheaty, with substantial banana esters present. Medium bodied. Decent stuff.

Not a bad beer, however could be stronger and definitely thicker to complete the flavors.

10 ounce tap glass at Will’s Northwoods in Chicago. Take everything they write in the brewer’s description and prepare to drink the opposite. This beer reminded me of a cold pour of campbells soup with the taste of soggy bananas. Flat palate, foggy yellow, spoiled fruit taste. Unenjoyable.

Banana scent is not quite as strong as expected, but still has a presence. Flavor is a mix of banana, mild citrus, and a slightly carbonated finish.
