500ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with tons of carbonations bubbles and a large white, but not tightly-foamed head. The head has decent retention actually and leaves some decent lacing. The smell is ultra-mellow with mostly bready malt and a pinch of grassy, cirtusy hops. The taste is decently balanced for a pils, there is an overlying bitterness over the bready malt. The flavor seems to lean a bit towards the euro pale lager, but this is still a good light lager. THis brewery does much better for sure, but this isn’t bad.

Bottle. There has been much hype about this beer in the UK. Rohit Amin spent 18 months creating the "perfect" beer to accompany Indian food. Knowing Michael Jackson's love of both curry and beer, he set about getting his support for the project. Tikka Gold is brewed in Belgium for Tikka Beer Ltd at Brouwerij Van Steenberge. The result is a soft and pleasant lager.

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.

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.

vyvvy (3904) - 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.

50 cl bottle. poured golden with a big bubbley head. not very complex. can taste a bready grain with subtle citrus and floral notes. yep, hops are there, but not very distiguished. i thought that a belgian would be better...you know, given that duval and all of those abbey ales are so terrific. won’t buy again at over $3.

nick76 (4180) - 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.

daknole (8941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Yellow pour, white head. Lightly malty aroma with some honey and very faint hops. Flavor is malty and has a distinct honeycomb flavor. Not great, but drinkable.

reebtogi (4103) - 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.

Originally reviewed Jan. 29, 2007: poured with very little head. aroma is coffee like. colour is hazy yellow. looks like pee. taste has hints of citrus in it, but again, has attributes of coffee in it. little after taste. assaults tongue first couple sips. after that not a bad beer really. quite drinkable.
