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.

Itís probably just me but when I see a pale lager thatís made and Belgium and called Tikka, I just have to try it. We have here a slightly hazed orange golden brew w// a diminishing head of mixed bubbles that leaves behind lace in big sheets. The nose is mildy fruity and floral, maybe a tuti-fruiti bubblegum sort of thing. Dry w/ a grapefruit rind bitterness up front complimented by a twinge of acidity. Vigorous carbonation. There is a strange earthy bitterness in the finish which is my only real complaint. Whatís really strangest about this beer is that given itís called a Pilsner on the label and it tastes like it does, I have to conclude itís been infected. It seems though that the infection was by some Belgian yeast strain and itís none the worse for wear and for all I know more flavorful and better.

iowaherkeye (2690) - 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. Wonít be getting ever again, mainly because there are a billion beers just like this one.

Beerdedone (2584) - 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.

Shag (2584) - 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

pintbypint (2549) - 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.

jimhilt (2389) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 30, 2006
Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Starts slightly hoppy and stays that way, mild flavored, could make a good session beer but not as good as their BiŤre du Boucanier Golden ale. $2.99 for a 500ml bottle from Johnís Grocery Iowa City, Ia.
