COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, Pasteurised.
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.
2005 Recipe changed from 5.5% to 5.2%

dliberto (217) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is yeast, banana, and hay. Taste is bananas, vanilla, walnuts, and bread. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Sweet on the tongue, not a bad aftertaste, and the beer is slightly oily. Not bad

Poured a light amber colour with a thin head. Aroma is of light bready notes and clove. Flavor is of bready malts, banana and nuts. Light to medium bodied brew with a slight creamy texture and light bitterness on the finish.

찰스웰스 브루어리-바나& 브레드 비어 5.2% ABV 병을 따자마자 확실히 풍기는 바나나브레드- 검게 변하기 시작하는 묵은바나나-알& 감도는 바나나의 향. 마시다 보면 바나나향이 재빨리 사그라든다.재& 개성으로 오바하며 뒷통수 후려치는 컨셉이라기 보단 그냥 재밋네, 가끔씩 마실만하네 정도의 벨런스를 잡은 맥주. 렉싱턴,켄터키,

Pours amber with white head. In aroma - surprise, surprise - bananas, bread and some spice. Taste - liquid bread with bananas. A little bit sweet, but really something different to drink. So good beer ...

I wont deny there is a bit of an excitement. But after considering that this is just provoked by the exoticness of the ingredients, well, thats about it. Horrible malty alcoholic aroma, with yes banan and honey notes, but added to the soup rather than cooked with. Anyway, just for the experience I might say. No head, no proper carbonation either.

emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Pours amber with a frothy creamy head. Aroma is awesome bananas and heady malts. Taste doesn't match scent, much more bland. Not bad; definitely not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle... liquid banana bread, rich sweet and jammed packed with banana flavor... would be superb with any banana dessert. highly recommend to try with a dessert, but not something you can drink a lot of.

Pours a light amber. Strong aroma of bananas. Very little head. On the palate some banana some spice and some hops. Long dry relatively tasty finish. Not a bad beer, definitely worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

k_gadeberg (201) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2017
On bottle. Pours golden, without head. Lots of co2, first bitterness, then a watery kind of banana taste. Notes of bread and yeast, really a beer that splits people, either you like or hate it.

POD (198) - USA - MAY 29, 2007
Couldn’t resist this beer when I saw it in the cold beer section of the store. I drank this one ice cold. Appearance is copper orange with a creamy tan head. Aroma is 100% Banana Bread, which I love. The brew has a watery mouthfeel and plenty of carbonation. Flavor is ripe banana with a hint of nuttiness. The finish goes tart, then bitter. This ale is a fantastic relaxation beer to be enjoyed with any salty snack of your choice. I liked it and would drink it again.
