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.

Medium gold body with a white head. The aroma is corn, fresh carrots and some light soap. The taste has some sharp spicy celery with some black pepper. This is very strong with the spice. I am not sure if it supposed to be that strong. There is definitely hops inhere, but it comes across more like grass and popcorn than good hops. This left a lot of lacing on the glass. It needs just a little more malt to balance it out.

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. It’s 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.

Beerdedone (3062) - 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.

jimhilt (2491) - 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 Bière du Boucanier Golden ale. $2.99 for a 500ml bottle from John’s Grocery Iowa City, Ia.

bhensonb (12969) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Aroma of malt, yeast, and light, faint, maybe grassy, hop. Slightly hazy lemon gold color with a substantial white head. Medium bodied. Hints of lemon and other citrus. Moderate carbonation. Sturdy malt character, but far from sicky sweet. Decent bitter in the finish. Maybe a hint of citrus sour in the back of the mouth. This is surprisingly good stuff. That from an ale drinker. If Bud turned into this, America would rule the beer world (except for Czecho).

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle - I love the thought behind this. An Indian beer brewed in Belgium. Had this at an Indian restaurant. This is right up there with Taj Majal, Singha, etc, etc with slightly more sweet malt character and a pleasant finish.

EithCubes (5309) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle. Soft pale malt nose with soft grassy hops, light mineral water character. Pours a pale golden with a soapy white head. Taste is bone dry and aggressive, lightly metallic and minerally, dirt, stones, grass, salt, significant hop bite though not the taste of hop oils. Medium body is a bit harsh with the carbonation, but dry and cleansing, a little softness behind it all. Just a touch of grain. I award an additional tenth [point] based on potential merit - this would be a nice change of pace with food, cleansing the palate, bringing a different texture; but it seems a bit off when all alone.

[500ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames.] Deep straw with a soft billowing white head; aroma of yeast and coriander; soft dry flavours with lots of floral hops; definitely a Belgian influence. Very pleasant.

jookos (3913) - FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Yellow, filtered. Some green, bit citrusy. hoppyness, pale malts. Dryish. Ok, light flavoured lager drink. Doesn’t feel too sterile, clean, but has some character.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2010
bottle from tops shared on 2/7/2010. pale straw honey colored with a small off white head. rough pils-ish grainy aroma mixes with honey comb, mud, a bit of nuttiness and dust. add some lemon and mineral/slate to the aroma to make up the flavor... it finishes with a harsh mineral note which lingers with grain in the aftertaste. the body is medium and crisp but somehow has a muddy/swampy mouth feel which really distracts me. 6/3/5/2/12/2.8
