Darker blond / light brown with slight carbonation
Smell
smells like freshly baked banana bread
Taste
slight carbonation then BAM! Banana everywhere and not horribly fruity at all.
Feel
not heavy at all for a hybrid beer
Drinkability
This is a great Hybrid beer that smells like banana bread and leaves you wanting more.

Look
Nice golden color with a thin white head.
Smell
You're hit with a blast of banana, not overpowering.
Taste
Taste just like banana bread, you can even taste the nuts.
Feel
Nice rich beer with the perfect amount of carbonation.
Drinkability
This is a great beer. Although I do consider this a desert beer, most likely you wont want to down bottle after bottle.

Review

Serving Type
Bottle
Look
Amber in color and fairly clear with a small creamy head.
Smell
The smell was, well, bananas with a hint of nuts. Hops were not particularly fragrant, but the yeast smell was strongly fruity (often a sign of esters produced by over-strained yeast)
Taste
Malt profile was somewhere between caramely and nutty, with mild hopping. Yeast was again a fruity, ester-rich banana flavor.
Feel
Smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The body was medium and the banana flavor certainly lingered.
Drinkability
Very drinkable (assuming you like banana and banana bread). I would recommend it as a novel beer, however I could only drink more than one or two before the fruitiness becomes overwhelming.
