I tried this at a little palm tree covered outdoor cafe in the quaint old part of Key West. It was about ten in the morning, and the guy at the cafe sort of raised an eyebrow when I asked for a beer at that hour. I kindly informed him that I was on a cruise, and that beer at ten am is perfectly normal whilst on vacation. So there.
A - Golden yellow with a small white head. The brew is perfectly clear, and there is no trace of lace.
S - Fruity with a macro lager trace of funk. I can smell some mango notes on top of the adjuncty smells.
T - Fruity, grainy, and a bit zesty. Papaya and mango are there, but just barely.
M - Moderate carbonation and a fuller-than-excpected mouthfeel add up to a decent feeling beer. The finish is off-dry and gritty.
D - Good. This isn't an outstanding brew, but I like the unique mango and papaya flavors. A half way decent session beer for the beach.

Based on the tale of a young bartender who served me this beer while i was at port waiting for my fiance to get her hair braided in Nassau, this beer was named after the sound of cow bells jingling when a herd was rounded up - you can look up the history of Bahamian cowboys on your own if it's worth a glance. Regardless of the mediocre to awful reviews this beer has received, I would highly recommend it. I had this beer for the first time at a bar in Nassau in 100 degree weather and believe me...my thirst was quenched - nevermind having my beer thirst satiated - and I was enjoying my time waiting three hours for a hair braid. I wouldn't recommend it as a lounge drink on a cool day or as an extra in the fridge, but believe me, when it's hot this hits the spot (unintentional rhyme), and it's so far beyond bud light and coors light or any other "limited" beverage you may drink. Beer pong with Kalik...do it; different experience guaranteed. It's perfect for bbq's or afternoons outdoors with friends. Just...just...just drink it, Ok?!
