Tikka Gold a quality premium beer brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water. A Pilsner style with Indian character having a good balance of dryness and bouquet of hops and a soft malt character to complement spicy foods.

Bottle: Light straw in color, very pale and clear in fact, thin white head, light carbonation.   Straw and grass on the nose, slight malt flavor but mainly grassy on the tongue.   Semi-sweet, not half bad for a Pale Lager.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Fairly clean finish, simple, remains mainly grassy.   Not too shabby.   Thanks mattbob for sharing!

500ml - (Secret Santa cousin Rich) Aroma is skunky and bland. Pours clear yellow with small head and some lacing. Flavor is bland, boring, skunky, and thin, but non-offensive. Palate is watery and non-existent. This is why I don’t drink pale lagers.

Shag (2843) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2005
This beer poured a very light yellow color with a almost no head. Appearance ponts a sold 1 so far. It smells like corn, hay, and generic dish detergent. So far this is in the toilet. The flavor has a slight yeasty presence. The taste is quite dry with some lemons, whipped cream, creamed corn, and buttered popcorn. Well overall its not too bad. Nothing I would seek out though

foul rubber aroma. Pours a clear golden yellow, thin white head. Unsatisfying over-fermented vinegar taste. Leaves you wishing you could taste more rice.

Brew HaHa - Curry? What curry? I must have missed the secret spice, but what I did catch of this beer was good. Fruity nose and body presented in a lager style. Definitely an above average lager that I will seek out.

Suttree (6105) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2005
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.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2005
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.

Hugh (208) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2004
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.

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.
