High alcohol. But not an American beer
I bought this at Publix... I've had Kalik the original. But this is not that. Much more malty.

This is the stronger version of the regular color.. Really not much going on here it's a straight corn beer probably with a little extra sugar added to the Brewing process for the extra kick of alcohol food. Nothing really special although I will say when you're on a small Bahamian island with only 100 people that live there and there's one bar that serves ice cold kalik gold after you've been out Marlin fishing and spear diving all day it's pretty phenomenal

L - Golden with tons of clarity. Pours with a large white, fizzy, foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.
S - Tons of malt, slight notes of hops and spices but nothing else really going on.
T - Tons of sweet malt with spices and slight notes of hops. Maybe even some saltiness. Tastes like a typical adjunct lager with maybe slightly more flavor.
F - light to medium bodied with a high amount of fizzy carbonation.
O - I had this while vacationing in the Bahamas. This is one of the better adjuncts out there but that's not really saying much. The alcohol content is definitely a plus as most in this category are typically lacking. Overall, not too bad but I not something I would choose if I had better options.

Had Kalik Gold while on vacation in the Bahamas, assumed all I would get down there was basic lager type beers so the bar wasn't set too high for the local beer scene. This fit right into that category but thankfully had more body, flavor and ABV that expected. Typical thin, fizzy white head that faded fast and left zero lacing with of course the clear gold color. Aroma was basic malt, vegetables, a dash of caramel and a hint of floral hops. Taste had a tad bit more malt than regular lagers which gave it more robust sweet flavors to make up for the almost non-existent hop qualities. Better than I expected and drinkable enough for a nice poolside brew.

Pours a clear golden yellow with 1 finger lacing that sticks around. Smells heavily of malt. Tastes of bready malt. Mouthfeel is very clean up front and finishes with a mild spicy bite on the back end. Heavy malt after taste.

L: Golden yellow

S: Corn and sweet malt with a touch of skunk

T: Same as smell ... not offensive

F: good enough carbonation

Overall: unimpressive when I factor in the price and can get much better beer for the same cost.

Bought in Flordia, poured into a pint glass. Pours with lots of carbonation, one finger head. Color is of a yellowish gold. Cloudy. Not a very good look, I would say.

Smell of grains... malty and corny.

Taste surprised me to say the least. Thought it would equate to a watery tasting macro, but has a little more flavor and body. Medium body, with sweet corn notes, grassy, high malt.. No hops to note, A slight skunky and small metallic taste left in the mouth.

Overall goes smooth, a unique taste. Would drink again thought a little high on malt.
