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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours bright gold with a mostly receding off-white head. Notes of sweet pale malt, cookie, tart bread yeast, light herbs. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Very sweet and sugary beer that had a bit of stickiness to it but not too much. Was a good palate cleanser for the Indian food I was eating.

Strong corn and malts aroma with a slight amount of caramel. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Mildly tangy taste in the beginning developing into more malt flavor in the finish.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 7, 2008
500 ml bottle. Fizzy, clear yellow with a white head. Very cereal nose, sweet corn, bready. Flavor is sweet grain, a bit of floral hop, and precious little else. This. Sucks. So Belians CAN make a shitty beer. Who knew? Swilly in a big, macro kinda way. Watery and weak.

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.

Straw color; faint golden color. Small head. A sweet aroma. A sour mash, bittersweet flavor. Hmm.... Fairly decent. Nothing to go out of your way for.

Chilled 330ml bottle. Iím liking the golden coloured cap, although I have a feeling it goes downhill from there... Not much to the nose, slight sweet maltiness. Pours clean golden body with sizeable white head and lace. Pale malt flavours, reasonably full body, hint of grassy hops, with an odd sharp dry hint of rice towards the finish which i canít explain to well, unexpected really. Another drinkable but unremarkable pale lager to the list.
