Northern Reserve Ice Lager

This is from the Northern Brewing Company, part of Cold Springs Brewery in Cold Springs, Minnesota.

This 5.8% ABV beer pours a very yellow honey golden in color with a cyclone of carbonation in the glass.  There is a short head of white foam that leaves sticky lacing down the glass.  The aroma is malty, sweet potato, and a hint of banana.  The taste is like sweet banana bread.  I can't say this is a bad beer, but I can't really say what it is, other than strange.  That being said, I would not seek it out again, it doesn't bear repeating for me.
