2.28/5  rDev -24%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

I received a bottle of this as a gift from my good friend the Louisiana Spitfire after her trip to the Bahamas, and along with a Kalik t-shirt as well, the whole ensemble. I also work with a fella from the Bahamas who was telling me all about the Kalik line, and the story behind the name regarding the Junkanoo festival.

Comes in a clear 345 ml bottle, the word Kalik embossed on it. Pours out a clear golden hue, casual carbonation, and a fairly tall shock white head that lasts less than 30 seconds before completely dissipating.

The aroma starts off fairly neutral, sweet malt and very faint grassy hops, but as it warms the adjuncts start crawling out.

Adjuncts are clearly present in the flavour, no doubt about it. Grainy malt up front, with some sour corn in the middle, finishing off with some puckering astringent herbal hops. Quite the mouthful. However I've been told this all becomes less noticable when you drink a few of these in the hot sun of the Bahamas. Had to have been there I suppose.

Mouthfeel is on the light side, but still fairly substantial for a 7% abv lager.

I thank my friend once again for bringing me back a bottle to sample, however I don't think that the general population is missing out on much that we don't have this available on domestic shores. No better or worse than most of our domestic macros.
