The aroma is a mixture of floral and spruce. The color is straw with a head that dissipated quickly. It has a decent hops tasted to it. It was actually better than I anticipated. It has a stringent sting as it goes down which is not very appeasing on the palate.

Grumbo (1369) - 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.

Poured light golden with an off white head. Aroma of sweet grains. Light body, flavour of the aroma.

johnnnniee (3797) - 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 Iíve had worse and maybe these arenít always light struck. If I find myself in the Bahamas I will try again.

snoworsummer (4702) - 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 (473) - 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 thatís decent for the situation.

mkel07 (5162) - 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 (3510) - 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 thatís about it. Thereís mild lollyish sweetness thatís a bit papery. Some bitterness at the end. The bottle claims thereís malt in this but you wonder. Poor for a pale lager.

KeefOz (1537) - 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.

Ed5388 (3207) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2016
12oz bottle brought back from the Bahamas thanks to Timmy! Pours a clear golden yellow with a finger of foamy bright white head. I can smell the skunkiness as soon as I opened the bottle. All I get from the aroma is straight skunk. Probably the skunkiest beer Iíve ever had. Taste of sweet grain, bad lemons, and loads of skunk. Thanks for the rate Tim, but this is a total drain pour!

Taste is a little salty, some bitter bite, sudsy, yeast nose, lite body with smaller head
