This Tesco special was craft brewed by Banks’s (Marston’s) in the UK in a classic German style. It boasts distinctive banana and spicy clove notes with a refreshing bitter finish.
The label wasn’t lying about the banana taste but no matter how deep I dig, or slow I swallow, i can’t seem to find the cloves. It is however fresh, fruity and in my humble opinion a great compliment to jelly beans, liquorice and The Departed (2006 film). Dim the lights on a Friday evening, pop on an old crime thriller and pour a hazy yellow amber glass. Do let me know if you find a clove in there.
