500ml bottle, 5.2%. A nice beer with strong banana aroma. It tastes very like banana bread so is very well named. Pleasant to drink and easy on the palate. A good effort!

2013.03.02 - Wells Banana Bread Beer - 16.9oz bottle in pint glass. Bottle is about a year old.
Aroma: it's not in your face but you can definitely get banana bread in the aroma. And more than just a banana ester sort of thing.
Appearance: Pours around (12) on SRM scale. Mostly clear light gold. Little to no head/carbonation.
Taste: Definitely a sweet banana on the front end giving way to a more neutral gold ale taste.
Palate/Mouthfeel: very light with just trace carbonation.
Aroma 6/10, Appearance 3/5, Taste 6/10, Palate 3/5, Overall 13/20

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a thin but lasting tan head. Sweet aroma of banana. Taste: some bitterness, like herbs - warms to banana, some bread like malt. Finishes with a banana / slightly bitter finish. Pretty good, someting different, nice flavour.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Beautiful amber/copper color with little head and lacing. Aroma of banannas and malts. A banna flavor with a sort of acidic/tart aftertaste. I like to try a new/original take on a beer but this isnít one that I would recommend.

Wells Banana Bread Beer
English pint bottle
Recent bottling, sliced into 11/06
Medium pour in an English pint.
Poured a mystifying clear yellowish brown with an average fizzy mostly diminishing off white head.
Smelt strongly of candied bananas as I was pouring. On closer inspection, smells of strong sweet banana candy, spices and a bready maltiness. Genius!
Taste was upfront moderate sweet ripe bananas and spices, followed by a strong bitter malt breadiness and spices that slowly die down on an average length finish. Mouthfeel was light, watery, fizzy and awkward moderate astringency towards the end.
Overall, the label states it plainly, this beer is all about banana bread. The smell is wonderful, but the taste feels tamed and short with some crisp bitter bite at the end (crisp and bitter does not belong with banana and bread), as well as a fairly light body. Just a fun novelty beer overall.

pours a dark golden color with a thin white head. Heavy banana aroma as soon as you pop the cap. Overwhelming banana taste too however I liked the beer. It has a low drinkability rating because Iím not a monkey and canít take that much banana

Bottle pours a minimal tan head on a nice amber body without any lacing. Smells of malt and yeast. Taste of a water soaked banana bread. Very thin body.
