    Does it taste like actual banana bread? Or is that just sort of hints or after tastes?

    I suppose you could use a higher diacetyl producing yeast to get a buttery flavor if it would actually improve it.

    have you tried adding actual banana bread to the mash? you'd get whatever spices are in banana bread into the beer that way.
