Drinkable with a fake banana flavour - even though real bananas are used. OK, but a little odd.

Pours clear dark golden amber color. Aroma of malt, fruit, banana. Taste is light sweet fruit. Medium-light body, light dry bitter finish. Good overall.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: banana yogurt, artificial banana flavouring.
Appearance: warm, golden brown; clear; head medium plus, unstable.
Taste: mildly sour, just a tad sweet.
Palate: body light; carbonation almost fizzy; mouth feel spicy, peppery; finish Netaji tasteless, peppery.
Overall: I love the peppery mouth feel; but I also hate the chemical aroma and I’m not particularly impressed by how watery it is.

Purchased as a draft at the Brass Tap in Gainesville, Florida. Has the taste of a weak beer made significantly worse by the addition of cloying artificial banana flavoring. Tastes like medicine.

3/13/2009 6:08:27 AM On cask in Notting Hill. Clear copper body. Strong smell of banana and sugar. Tastes like banana (which I normally like) but quite overpowering. Some malts as well but not pleasant altogether.

This beer reminds me of a cigar. It smells great from a distance, but the taste isn't the same thing. Still, I enjoy it, and if faced with the choice between this and a bottle of bud, I'd go with the banana bread beer every time.

You can smell the banana before the glass hits your lips but it does taste slightly water down and not as full body as a quality craft beer

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.

Bona cervesa, bastant equilibrada i gustosa, es nota molt el plàtan.
