Wells & Young's Brewing Company Banana Bread Beer

Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.

Tonight’s featured beer is Wells & Young's Brewing Company Banana Bread Beer.

From the Wells & Young's Brewing Company website: “This unique brew combines all the traditional qualities and style of a Charles Wells beer with the subtle flavour of banana.

Wells Banana Bread Beer is a popular beer in the Wells and Young’s range of ales. The beer has achieved a number of accolades including winner of "Beer of the Festival" award at CAMRA's London Drinker Festival in March 2002.

Available as a draught seasonal cask beer, Wells Banana Bread Beer can be found on the bar and, in its popular bottle format, in all leading supermarkets.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear golden brown color with nice off-white head and decent lacing.
Aroma: Banana, spices, grassy/floral hops, bready and toasted  malts and a slight toffee scent.
Taste: Ripe banana, bready malts, spices and a slight bitterness in the finish.  Tastes like spiced banana bread in liquid form.
Overall: Smooth and easy to drink, Wells & Young's Brewing Company Banana Bread Beer is similar to a traditional English Brown with real banana flavor and spices added.  Although this 5.2% ABV beer isn’t something I would tend to gravitate towards, I did enjoy it and would most definitely drink again if the opportunity presented itself.
