COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To celebrate the 500th Anniversary of Christopher Columbusí 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 itís 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. Itís 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 during the RBWG lobby share. Pours a clear yellow with small white head. The aroma is wheat grass, skunk, corn malt. Flavor is similar to nose.

Can @ RBWG after party. Gold with a small head. Super skunky, lemon and bread. Toast. Honey. Taste is similarly oxidised and objectionable. Light bid, soft carb.

Bottle, golden pour in my snifter... Lol. Yes my snifter. Aroma is corn syrup and a old dusty hop. Flavor is stale hops, grain and corn. Yeah, drinkable And not totally vile but not really worth the time.

AdamJackson (3075) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2014
12oz bottle, well itís gold. 1 finger white head faded slowly. Smells like corn syrup and butterscotch with a touch of broken dreams. very malt forward, a lot of sweetness but thatís to be expected, some apple and peach but really flat on flavor after that. Tastes skunked.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark gold with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is sweet corn and Pils malt with light spicy hops. Flavor is sweet corn and Pils malt, light alcohol, light hops and medium bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

The stronger malty cousin of Kalik. I donít understand some of the excessively negative reviews; itís a malt liquor from the Caribbean. Good enough for what it is, just donít have too many if you donít have a reliable ride home from the beach.
