To celebrate the 500th Anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ voyage of discovery, Kalik created this limited edition, extra-strength brew in 1992. While only a limited number of commemorative bottles were initially envisioned, Chalk Gold became so popular that it has been enjoyed year-round in the Bahamas ever since.

Kalik recieved it’s name from the distinct sound the local cowbells make when played in the seasonal festivals. That is about the only thing even remotely interesting about this beer. It’s quite subtle and often sublety can be a good thing but in the case of Kalik gold, subtle=bland. Though it is a good sight better than the regular Kalik, I would skip this beer if I were you in favor of a simple Corona.

Bottle - average yellow with a small head. Skunky aroma and a dirty malty taste. Medium thin body. I’m probably being generous giving it a 2.

Bottle @ Sheila’s Conch & Wings. Pale, I guess sort of gold. Bland, plasticy, and with some appley esters and plasticy phenols. No real bitterness and the finish is quite grainy. I haven’t had a beer this bad in a while.

DeanF (1939) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Found in Bolivia. Yeah, go figure - "I’m in Bolivia, I need me some Bahamas lager!" Weak frothy white head with carbonated yellow body. Aroma is cardboard and yeast. Flavour is sweet lemon and orange with a cloying sweet finish. This might work in the heavy heat of the Bahamas but it sure doesn’t do much in La Paz.

Bottle in the hotel lobby, RBWG ’15, night 2 - 20/02/15 thanks to whomever shared this number. Nice to scope a Malt Liquor for a country tick !!! Gold with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pale malt, paper, straw, grain. Taste comprises pale malts, grain husk, sweet notes, cereals, light caramel streak. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so, not enough boost on offer, no warm ML glow !

Aggiebob (447) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear yellow with a white head that dissipated quickly - lots of carbonation. The aroma is very light grass and yeast while the taste is lightly sweet with a bread and light citrus flavor. The finish as a very slight bitterness. Overall a very good lager.
