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.

not much on any front, slightly corny with some sweet malts. fizzy tasting with a touch of wheat at the end. better to skip it.

11-Feb-08 (500-ml bottle: Purchased 09-Feb-08 for $2.89 at Ledger’s Liquors in Berkeley, CA) I take it that Tikka Gold is supposed to be Indian-style lager brewed in Belgium, or at least that is the marketing. On the palate, the malty base is bready, lightly sweet, and slightly cardboardy, but a light but noticeable hop character adds balance to the flavor and a mild bitterness to the finish. Except for the light cardboard in the finish, this isn’t actually all that bad. It’s light-medium in body, medium in carbonation, and sports a modestly crisp mouthfeel. Grainy, somewhat bready malts dominate the nose, and there’s even a hint of hops when the beer is swirled, but the ubiquitous presence of cardboard mars the overall aromatic character. It pours pale golden in color and very hazy, but the white head is very creamy and rises to well over an inch before settling to a quarter-inch layer, which it impressively holds for the duration of the lengthy session (and is still there the next morning). A large, dense, tightly packed blanket of foam covers much of the glass. What could have been a complete throw-away beer is actually decent enough to warrant drinking several ounces. It’s not enjoyable enough to drink more than half the bottle though...

Bottle at Punjabi restaurant, gold with lasting white head, slight hop nose, body has some mango and malt but is pretty watery and shallow.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Sampled at the 12th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Slight hazy golden with a simple white head. Very skunky sweetness nose. Light hops. More simple sweet pils tastes and an uncharacteristically long finish.

LinusStick (2969) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Blah. Aroma was weak and next to nothing. Stale light malt and cardboard. Pour was a dirty medium gold with no head or bubbles. Taste was dirty and dusty malt with no aftertaste and not much to it. Even the decent carbonation couldn’t bring this beer out of the ones.

.5l bottle at great local Indian restaurant. Pale yellow. Musty hops. Sweet lager flavors. Slick and sweet. Does the trick.

Beerdedone (2901) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle sampled withStegosaurus. Pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma slightly better than american macro brew. Flavor is carbonated, sweet malts, weak, but easily drinkable.

pintbypint (2839) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2007
330ml brown bottle. Poured very pale straw colour, long lasting billowy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma reveals grassy hops, also some honeylike sweetness. Flavour is minerally, dry, finishes with a dash of grassy hops flavour, trace bitterness. Body is light and watery. A little stale tasting overall.

0,5l bottle @ Shalimar. Pours pale golden with a low head. Aroma is weak malts. Flavor is malts with some hops. Quite decent.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Pours an almost crstal clear straw with a small white head. Weak aroma of wet hay, metal, corn, and some floral hops. Slight hoppy earthy grassiness followed by a little bit of corn and bready sweetness. I think this falls under pilsener, though a weak one at that. Could be a pretty decent summer refresher-type beer. Won’t be getting ever again, mainly because there are a billion beers just like this one.
