bhensonb (14090) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle from the Arden BevMo. Pours light amber with a slight head. Aroma is lightly malty. Med body. Flavor is a light brown sugar with a fair amount of earthy bitter. A little fruity. Dont think its banana ester tho. I think the main aspect, and it is strong in the finish, is the bitter. Decent beer.
