Wells banana bread beer


Wells banana bread beer“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. ”

Well there’s no need to waste much time here and break this beer down. Served in a shaker glass the amber brown pour produced a small 1/2 inch head that slowly collapses. Minimal lacing.

It’s called a banana bread beer for a reason, so along with the standard English aromas of toasted malts, caramel and subtle nuts the main feature of the beer is front and center.

The mouth feel is slightly thin and a bit watery. Mildly carbonated. The flavour profile is very 1 dimensional and cloyingly sweet with an over-representation on the banana. Heavily outbalanced. To be honest we won’t be trying this ever again. Horrible.
