I think that's more like an A with B bass, but I'm not sure, since there's still an F sharp in it.

Another way to make the B ring clearer is to still play the barre with the index finger, but use the middle, ring and baby finger to hit the notes at the fifth fret, like you could with an A or B flat in the first position. It can also help the Bsus sound clearer by slipping the baby finger up a fret. This may help especially in the key of E, since that Bsus4 shows up regularly.

That having been said, I still find myself barring the fifth fret.

Hope this helps.
