When compared to other Caribbean or South of the Border "vacation destination" style beers, Kalik stands alone. This is a well-made lager. Golden in color with medium bodied, herbal malt. Amply hopped with tea-like and citrus bitterness. A light taste of lime blends well with a bit of sweetness. The aroma is mild but quite pleasant. The very white head lasts long enough to admire. Surprisingly nice beer!
BTW Kalik is one of the happy sounds heard in the festive Junkanoo parades/celebrations of the Bahamas. Its best to enjoy a Junkanoo celebration with a Kalik beer in hand

Poured from a 12oz. can into a plastic cup.
A slightly hazy straw color with a little foam and not much head retention.
Smell is slightly bready, maybe a hint of yeast.
This tastes better to my palate than most American Lagers. A pleasant sweetness from the malt a bit of a hop bite. Nice.
Mouthfeel is typical lager.
Overall, I give it a bit of a bonus because I'm DRINKING IT IN THE BAHAMAS! It's actually the perfect beach beer. Easy drinking, smooth and tasty.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear darker gold with a thin, wispy white head. Really poor head retention and no lacing to speak of.
Bready aroma with some hints of flowers, hay, and grass. Somewhat reminiscent of a European lager.
More bread in the taste. There is just the lightest bit of toast in there along with grass and hay from the hops. Bitterness in on the light side and the finish is extremely dry and crisp. This has to be one of the most refreshing beers I have had.
Overall, what an awesome lighter lager! It is so crisp and has just enough flavor to keep it from being boring. A great beer to drink in hot weather and just blows away Red Stripe
