Calling It Like It Is

In a world where very little is as it seems, it's nice to discover a beer that delivers on its name.
Banana Bread Beer (5.2% ABV)
Wells & Young's Brewing Company
Bedford UK
Beer O'Clock rating: 4
Appearance: a clear amber-orange with an off-white, creamy head that comes to a full, lingering cap.

Nose: bananas, yeast, cinnamon, and a hint of clove.

Palate: ripe bananas and moist spice cake.

Overall impression: as per its name, this beer delivers exactly as advertised. This is liquid banana bread. This beer has good body, full flavour, and a good, solid finish.

I gave it a rating of 4 because the beer delivered. It claimed to taste like banana bread and it did.

While it's a good beer, I feel it's a novelty item. I enjoyed drinking it and would happily do so again, but it's not something I would drink on a regular basis. It more of a rare treat.

After all, who wants to eat banana bread every day?
