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.

MarkoNm (681) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 18, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with an average and quickly disappearing white head. The malty aroma dominates the nose and is easily picked up. The taste starts slightly sweet, followed by balanced body, finishing with a nice bitterness. Light, drinkable and refreshing, perfect for the beach.

MrBlueSky93 (16) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Review for TheBeerGuy. Don’t expect a lot from this, in fact, why did you buy it? Boring, no taste, nothing special. Tastes of Hay, Grass and Lager. Nothing else.
