COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Hazed straw color with a taller eggshell colored head. Decent lace. Sweet malt cereal and a dry weed/herbal aroma. Dry malt flavor in the start that sweeten slightly though the quaff. Light floral flavors come out in the finish and a mild pepper bite in the linger. Some cardboard in the linger as well. Perhaps a brew for indian food, but there are many lagers like this that would suffice.

nuplastikk (4919) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2008
500ml bottle. Golden yellow color, a little hazy. Aroma is mild and a little sweet. Taste is reminiscent of an Asian crap lager, but has much more quality ingredients and drinkability than the genuine article. Creamy and subtle, this is a nice standard lager. Sort of an oddity among Belgian imports, a tad underrated.

presario (4817) - 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.

reebtogi (4583) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
500mL bottle poured straw color with average white head settling quickly to spotted lacing. Aromas of bread and hay and a hint of yeast. Taste is lightly sweet with an undesirable hoppy finish. Carbonation and body are decent. Overall, something to drink on a hot summer day, as it goes down pretty easy.

vyvvy (4542) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Pours pale yellow / gold with bubbly off-white head. The aroma has light grain, corn and light butteriness. Medium body with medium carbonation. The taste starts with pale malt, some corn and light spicy hops. The finish is pretty much the same. This may not be bad for a pale lager, but it is ridiculously overpriced and mind-numbingly boring.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle. Poured a medium sized white fizzy head that mostly diminished, lackluster lacing, minimal carbonation, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Nose was skunky and rice smelling. Flavor was weak-mildly malty, rice, and somewhat astringent tasting. Smooth mouthfeel. Light body. Not impressed by any means.

RichardGretton (4380) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2004
Pale lager with a strong head, dry malty aroma and a dry but ultimately sweet finished flavour. Overall OK but not better than average.

wlajwl (4350) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Has the aroma and flavor of a bready/grassy pilsner style lager but a bit rough around the edges. Not bad really, Belgian pale lagers typically are no better than any other pale lagers because there made for the same reason, this was decent compared.

nick76 (4302) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2009
The aroma is dusty, metallic, (hoppy) floral, and malty in an adjunct kind of way. The appearance is pale gold with a slight haze and a beautiful foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma making this more complex than almost any pale lager. The palate is thin. Overall this is an interesting beer that I want to like more.

nearbeer (4029) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2011
500 ml. Finally, there’s a "premium beer brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water"! Orange-peach color with a lasting sticky head. Nose is honey, lemon, light toast and flowery dry grass. Flavor is the same, but slightly less sweetness and more dry lemon grass. Light-medium body is sweet, watery and tingly, but has a crisp, slightly tart, grainy-hop finish that balances. A decent quality, Asian-style lager that does go well with spicy food, as advertised.
