Beer Question

Hi, My husband drinks coors light and was wondering if there are any beer in Barbados that taste similar. He doesn't like heavy beer or ales or strong after tastes!

There is no lite beer in Barbados, Banks has lowest alchohol content that I could find, next year I will have to try it with ice

He might want to try Carib.. it's lighter in color, but not a light beer.

I drank Banks beer with ice all the time and it was great!!

If I was out, I would ask for a glass of ice and a banks....no problem.

i travel with a friend who also only drinks coors lite and he prefers carib over banks. as noted above, it's not a light beer but it has a lighter flavour. he also drinks heiniken if he can't find carib.

Banks is a good drinking beer. I'm having one now looking out over the water. You can get it ANYWHERE. and it isn't too heavy at all.

Banks is best however my wife likes the odd bottle of Coors Lite and finds Carib to be nearer to Coors. That said she really likes Banks. Great on or off the beacH!

Most beer drinkers are fine with Banks but if that fails the price of Heiniken at Supercentre is reasonable.

When we did the Banks Brewery tour we were told that Banks was brewed for the climate, ie it was light, easy to drink & thirst quenching.........After much research I can concur with this assessment
