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.

Can, from trade with HenrikSoegaard. A clear, pale golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is weak, fruity and grainy. A faint grassy, peppery touch as well. Thin on the palate, quite pleasant carbonation. Fruity and lightly malty flavor with some bitterness, more bitterness evident in the end. A rather boring one, thin and all that, but it drinks easily. Don’t think I could drink a few of it though. 120224

Bottle shared by BeerandBlues2 at gathering on 1/10/10. Color is bright gold with good carbonation and a fizzy white head. Aroma skunk and corn. It has a light body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor of grain and creamed corn then a light bitterness. Overall I don’t like it.

Pours a nice medium golden yellow color. Aromas of corn, hops, and a little metal. Flavor is smoother than most lagers, nice hop and grain taste.

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2011
500 ml bottle had in Germany and came to me via my wife and Indutiomarus who were on vacation in Malta. Pours a very pale yellow almost white. Has a fast to go white head. Aroma was somewhat better than expected, barnyard, hay and citrus. Taste is light sweet grains. Palate is pretty smooth for style. Not as bad as expected.

Got this on tap on vacation in Malta. Pretty much your normal pale lager. A weak staw and pale lager taste.

Bottle. Tried whilst on holiday in Malta in September 2011. Golden with low carbonation. Slightly dry. A passable Euro Fizz which was thirst quenching in the heat but nothing else.
