Cisk was launched in Malta in 1928. It is a golden-coloured lager with a distinctive and well-balanced character. Its rich hop aroma and pleasant bitterness, combined with a mild astringency, make it an outstanding thirst-quencher. Its alcohol content is 4.2%.
Cisk Lager was awarded top prize in the International Lager Category at the 1995 Australian Beer Awards and was presented with the Pfizer Food Science Trophy for the lager obtaining the highest number of votes in the same competition.

Yellow yellow everywhere. And the smell of skunk too. Fizzy. Wet. Cool. Think this might taste better if I was drinking it in Malta.

Alengrin (1049) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Maltese standard lager with creamy, off-white, sticky, not too stable head and brightly golden colour with calm sparkling. Malt sweetness in the nose, white bread, freshly cut grass, white pepper, young cheese. Taste neutral, like mineral water, slowly becoming very lightly malty, dryish, some grassy hops in the finish but not lasting long. Not that memorable but still just a little bit different from other Euro-lagers.
