Not too bad but great on a hot day in the Bahamas. Little taste and head but smooth. Reminded me of Landshark Lager.

wombat23 (765) - Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours an unnatural looking straw-yellow with a white head. Aroma of grains and skunk. Taste is skunk, grains, and more skunk. Ugh.

Aroma: typical pale lager cereal and rice; Appearance: pale straw, cloudy with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: follows nose with additional unpleasant notes reminiscent of bug spray; Palate: light bodied with long, ugly finish; Overall: got the Bahamas tick. That’s all I can say.

Grumbo (1508) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle brought back to uk from a visit to Nassau, Bahamas. Pale golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of light hop, corn and grass. Fairly sweet, light bitterness. Light body. Not one of the better Caribbean pale lagers.

johnnnniee (3816) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle received in trade. Brilliantly clear light golden color with a decent but short lived bubbly white head. Skunk in spades as soon as I pop the cap it envelopes the room. It slowly fades but it is constant in the aroma and flavor. Light crackery bready malt with some residual sweetness, carbonic bite, and faint hop presence. I guess I could say I’ve had worse and maybe these aren’t always light struck. If I find myself in the Bahamas I will try again.

snoworsummer (4808) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle. Tastes like bready malt, dough, sweet corn, and faint citrus. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet corn, grassy, and doughy malt.

Obfuscate (481) - Minneapolis, - JUL 9, 2016
In the Bahamas in Nassau. Long day at the Atlantis swimming with the family. Bought one going back into the boat. Standard pale lager that’s decent for the situation.

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle from First Choice Liquor 300616. I could imagine if you were sitting on a golden sandy beach under the blazing Carribean sun in the Bahamas this beer would probably taste like the best beer in the world. Unfortunately I am not in the Bahamas and this beer tastes any but good.

hawthorne00 (3539) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle, as Kalik Crisp. Very pale gold with a sudsy white head. Aroma is grainy with some cardboard, slight but definite hop notes of lemon and light spices. And the slight hop notes are there in the taste too, but that’s about it. There’s mild lollyish sweetness that’s a bit papery. Some bitterness at the end. The bottle claims there’s malt in this but you wonder. Poor for a pale lager.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2016
Poured a crystal clear pale golden colour with a two-finger bright white foamy head that diminished slowly and laced OK. Carbonation high with medium to coarse bubbles. Aroma strongly of grain/corn and hints of light malt; no obvious hops. Taste is slightly sweet, bland and a bit salty; no real hops bitterness. Light body. Crisp, smooth, refreshing and sweet with a hint of tartness on the finish.
