      Appearance (3)
      Very nice hazy amber-brown. Dense head.
      Aroma (3)
      Quite clean, mild caramel.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Light-not-quite-medium body. Low carbonation. Caramel, hints of toffee. Very low esters — some banana late.
      Overall Impression (2)
      It's got the "Bananas Foster" character, but it's very mild. First pour of the day?

      Pale, cloudy. Dense head.
      Aroma (3)
      Bready, mild yeast.
      Mouthfeel (7)
      Light, creamy, and fizzy. Lots of sweet wheat. Bready, yeasty. Esters are very subdued.
      Overall Impression (1)
      More character than an American wheat beer, but it leans in that direction.
