2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bright, clear gold, with a sturdy, foamy head. Nice clean, grainy aroma, with a hint of understated sweetness. Clean and crisp, withnotes of pepper, grass and maybe mint, although may have been the result of the chapstick I had used earlier. Spritzy and fizzy to the end. Nicely bitter.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Long lasting sticky film on a thin gold liquid. Off-putting compost aroma. Soft malt yes, but a very harsh finish. The hops really attack at the end. This may work better when drinking with spicy food but on its own the finish takes some getting used to.

Tasted alongside some other pale lagers this was distinctly in the bottom percentile. Drab ordinary lager. However, having an entire crate of this stuff to plough through, I have noticed another peculiarity. If I drink one of these, I don’t sleep well. Any other beer & I sleep soundly, but there’s something in this one which keeps me from sleep. Not in a nice way.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale lager with a strong head, dry malty aroma and a dry but ultimately sweet finished flavour. Overall OK but not better than average.

Bottle. There has been much hype about this beer in the UK. Rohit Amin spent 18 months creating the "perfect" beer to accompany Indian food. Knowing Michael Jackson's love of both curry and beer, he set about getting his support for the project. Tikka Gold is brewed in Belgium for Tikka Beer Ltd at Brouwerij Van Steenberge. The result is a soft and pleasant lager.
