3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1) Approximately 50x chilled 275ml bottles over the fesitve period, plus a few glasses on draught- @Pisces, for example. Clean and..well,crisp with a pale lemoniness, light toasted cereal and honey notes, hop bitterness but not flavour. Cooked veg, light honeyed herbal hop, aluminium on the nose. Noticeably more clean and herbal on draught, with Noble hop hints. Hugely superior to many of its Mediterranean counterparts, and I’m not just saying that because I’m pissed, deliriously happy and in Barbados for Christmas. Hits the spot for Englishman and mad dogs in the midday sun. 535310.
2) Chilled from the bottle, outdoors/indoors at Grantley Adams International. Crackery malt, light lemoniness, cashew hints in aftertaste. Tweak of piney hop. Some custard cream/egg custard. No adjuncts. Superior global lager, warranting more than half marks.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light and thin concoction with an unpleasant sourness dominating the middle and finish. Lots of adjuncts. Miserable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Banks Caribbean Lager has a thick, white, rather quickly dissipating head, a mostly clear (some roiling white specs cause haze), straw, bubbly appearance, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of a full nose of barley malt, biscuit, sweetness, and grassy hops. Taste is of those elements (think Grolsch), with a small amount of paper in the mix. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Banks Caribbean Lager finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. RJT

Bottle strictly for a new country, surprise, surprise. Barbados Budweiser. See Budweiser review. Corn, cloying lingering sweet corn finish, faint grass and vegetables too. Low body, medium carbonation. Why waste the liver for a new country anymore?
