500ml bottle. Golden yellow color, a little hazy. Aroma is mild and a little sweet. Taste is reminiscent of an Asian crap lager, but has much more quality ingredients and drinkability than the genuine article. Creamy and subtle, this is a nice standard lager. Sort of an oddity among Belgian imports, a tad underrated. reebtogi (6350) - 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. thedm (6309) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was marked 06GE and poured a large sized foamy head with a frothy top of fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light yellow-orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was slightly astringent and lagerish. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish then faded. The mild thin flavor contained notes of malt and hops.

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. ganache (6033) - 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.

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. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
This is "brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water?" Well, perhaps the corny aroma that I’m smelling is the "Indian character" that they speak of. Whatever. It’s a very pale yellow drink, soft in the mouth, that delivers a weak, sweet malt taste and finishes on a watery note. I’m still waiting for the hops that are mentioned. At least it’s too mild on every front to get offensive.nearbeer (5561) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2011

500 ml. Finally, there’s a "premium beer brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water"! Orange-peach color with a lasting sticky head. Nose is honey, lemon, light toast and flowery dry grass. Flavor is the same, but slightly less sweetness and more dry lemon grass. Light-medium body is sweet, watery and tingly, but has a crisp, slightly tart, grainy-hop finish that balances. A decent quality, Asian-style lager that does go well with spicy food, as advertised. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 12, 2006
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. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - FEB 24, 2006
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.
