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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one pours pale yellow gold with a 2 1/2 finger thick head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus, yeast. Flavor weak, sweet malts, carbonated, slight bitter finish. Not great, but drinkable.

Nice head and lacing. OK, thatís about it for positives. Yellow colored, very clear liquid. Not much aroma, citrus flavor (no indication of citrus on the label - but then there isnít much on this label); very crisp, champagne-like carbonation. This is definitely a pilsner but not a very good example.

Alarmingly clear yellow color that.. oh crap, it is a pale lager. Bitter aroma a little skunky. No hops, but the rice is noticible. If I had read pale lager on the label, I wouldnít have bought it.

This is "brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water?" Well, perhaps the corny aroma that Iím smelling is the "Indian character" that they speak of. Whatever. Itís a very pale yellow drink, soft in the mouth, that delivers a weak, sweet malt taste and finishes on a watery note. Iím still waiting for the hops that are mentioned. At least itís too mild on every front to get offensive.

Somewhat dissapointing. I was expecting something really enjoyable but what I got was much, much less. I got a ton of corn in the nose with a soapyness that really unpleasing. The appearance was a nice clear, yellow color. The slight harshness of the beer was not enjoyable at all, and the flavor corn really didnít sit right with me. A WELL below average Belgian lager. No thanks.

DuffMan (8152) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2006
Slightly hazy, light yellow gold, average foamy head leaving some nice lace. Fresh aromas of lemon and hay. Slightly sweet palate of pale malt with a touch of grassy hops. So much better than North Americaís typical pale lagers.

oh6gdx (23132) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Bottled. Hazy yellowish golden colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is strong grassy hops and breadish malts. Flavour is sweet caramellish malts with crashes with the stong hayish bitter hoppyness. Also some honeyish hints in it.

This pale lager pours a light yellow gold color from a 500ml bottle. Large to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is grassy and grainy and a touch citrusy. Damn this sure looks like a fizzy yellow beer from Belgium. Medium bodied Pale Lager. Malts are grassy, lots of corn as well. Hops are slightly spicy. Nice soft mouthfeel and carbonation. Light and refreshing lager. You can also add any other Pale Lager reference here. Despite that, its not bad for a pale lager. Itís a touch thin and perhaps a little vegetative as it warms. Mouthfeel is clean and smooth. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
