COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Ingredients: Water, Malted Barley (2-Row British and Australian), Hops (Yakima Clusters and Styrian Goldings), Yeast, Sugar, Corn Syrup
Launched: 1961
Banks Beer, the beer of Barbados, is a premium pilsner style lager with a smooth, fresh aroma and a medium alcohol content. Banks is brewed from a pure classic blend of 2-Row British and Australian malted barleys deliciously flavored by Yakima Clusters and the noble Styrian Goldings aroma hops. It is however Barbados’ water, naturally filtered through limestone rock, along with our own special strain of yeast, which give Banks Beer its unique Bajan character and distinctive quality. Consistently the #1 choice among beer drinkers in Barbados since it was first produced in 1961.

MichaelAwesome (3949) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2014
Simple, very simple Lager with low aroma but a high drinkability and a slightly sweetish finish. Could have been worse I guess.

McTapps (3948) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear light golden colour with steady low ehad and thin body. Aroma of mild hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, light wheat, straw, mild apples and grains. Watery finish but easy drinkable. Nothing special but not that bad.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle @ Dean to Mouth tasting, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a clear golden beer without any head on top. Aroma is absolutely nothing but a very faint hint of grains. Very watery palate, no taste whatsoever going on here. Very boring, watery lager, that’s it.

Frode (223) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pale yellow with absent head. Almost no aroma, just the usual cardboard, citrus and vague malty touches. Tastes the same, with a touch of water. Better than one would expect, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Bottle thanks to dEnk @ The Hague tasting. Clear pale yellow golden color, virtually no head. Very little aroma and flavor - if any. Watery texture, low carbonation.
