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.

Boutip (6269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear deep golden color lager with a large foamy white head with good retention and no lacing. Aroma of adjunct with lightly sweet malt. Taste is also dominated by some sweet adjunct with a pretty bland taste overall. Another world lager that is probably better if chugged on a beach in Barbados.

Eructoblaster (4136) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle - 355ml. Golden body with heavy carbonation and a thin white bubbly head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with some bready hints. Taste carries bad metallic notes and ends with a short bitter finish. Boring.

Bottle-Typical caribean lager. Yellow in color, with a fizzy heads that leaves quicker than a brother in law that spots a restaurant check. Corn and grassy aroma, thin taste with some malt. Still better than a Bud. Produce place

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - JUN 28, 2009
Really about as mediocre as a pale lager gets. Pours a standard pale fizzy yellow. Aroma mainly corn, a little grass, some sweetness of malts, and something else I cant pin but reminds me of something on a farm...The flavour is painfully straightforward, malts and a bit of hops in the finish. Dry mouthfeel. MEH

robinvboyer (4468) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2009
aroma of cheap grains, stale hops. Flavor is very grainy, and grassy. Big wet grass note in the finish that i just cant kick.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
355 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma: Small amounts of wheat and hay, grain, very light apple, thats about it. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: Very light cereal, a touch dusty, a wee bit of grassy hops, very light; dry with no bitterness to speak of and a light, vague cereal finish.

Hmmm, on the beach? Yes. Sitting here at home? No.
