COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Can, keg & bottle: Filtered
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. 10.5°

kryon (1830) - SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2013
Pours frizzy yellow with low to no white head Aromas has hints of syrupy malts, water, and nothing more Taste is quite alright for this type of beer meaning it has almost no taste and is a bit frizzy. Some malty sweetness and no real off taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (858) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Can brought back from Malta by a friend. Light golden colour, with a small white head. Aroma of malt and maize. Quite sweet, thin texture, rather metallic, perhaps suffering from canning and maybe better bottled/draft.

Great beer in Malta. Better in bottles than can locally. Cans do fairly well when transported from Malta to US.

ElDesmadre (2218) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle. A big surprise, as this does not taste like an ordinary, cheap, industrial macrolager. Bready malt, residual sugars, some lemony hops in the aroma. Medium body, light sweetness and moderate bitterness. None of the cheap tart notes I expected to find, some nice bitterness instead. A beer I genuinely liked.

Clear pale golden with white head. Nose is pale malts, sugars, citrus. Taste follows, grass, sugars, lemon. Imported version may suffer, a bit flat, light carbonation. Not really my thing but drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (12590) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Can at Craft Beer Clerkenwell thanks to Bob, 09/03/13. Clear pale golden with a good sized white head. Nose is pale malts, piss, sugars, citrus. Taste follows, grass, sugars, lemon. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, surprisingly non too fizzy! Ok for a pale lager - pleasantly surprised!

teorn88 (3583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Can at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks mate. It pours clean pale straw colour with a fair white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some grains and used books. Taste is crisp and refreshing, still aome hop bite, grains and paper. Thin and well carbonated. Not great, but I’ve had much worse.

Leighton (13827) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Can shared at CBC, Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear, light yellow with a fine, white foam head. Doughy, papery malts in the nose. Light sweet flavor, distinct paper, some hay, dry dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly dry to finish, some further papery pale and doughy malts, light straw. Simple beer overall.
