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. 10.5°

Vighals (2829) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Gulbrun klar med lavt hvitt skum som forsvinner fort. Sitron, malt og kornlukt. Lett syrlig søt sitron og malt. Kort, medium kullsyre.

Alengrin (4212) - 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.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
500ml can from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Pale golden in colour with a thin white head, thin lacing. The aroma is highly sweet, grainy with lots of cereal. The flavour is again quite sweet, thin, lightly bitter, some corn. Metallic mouthfeel, light body, high carbonation. Finishes quick, sweet and grainy. Not all that good, crisp and metallic.

Bamsen78 (4838) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
Draught. Pours clear pale golden with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops, with touches of malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of not-so-good malt and hints of citrus. Estery and rather bitter aftertaste. Nothing special but not bad for a pale lager.

TBone (15696) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle 330ml (thanks Eero!)
Clear golden color, small white head. Corn and cardboard in the nose. Light-bodied, active carbonation. Light herbal and corn flavor. Light veggie notes. Typical industrial "tropical lager".

Holmen1 (4613) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Flaske (takk til Elisabeth!), delt med Ovesen: fint skum som gir seg raskt, klar lys farge. Lite aroma, lite smak (lett syrlig og snev av humle) og ettersmaken er nærmest ikke-eksisterende. Sikkert forfriskende på Malta i 30 grader.

Holmen2 (2705) - NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Clear pale golden. Short, white head. Aroma of straw, dry hay and artificial sweeteners. Short, but almost ok taste. Equally short aftertaste. Low bitterness. A slighty unfresh Eurolager.
