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.

Bamsen78 (2888) - 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 (12333) - 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 (2275) - 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 (645) - 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.

GBZ59 (1061) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 13, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Vaso Lager. Color dorado y transparente. Espuma blanca y fina capa. Aromas de miel, hierba y leve sulfuro. Entrada vivaz y amarga. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación media/alta. Textura aguada. Dulzor de maltas y áspera sensación de grano y amargor basto permanecen en el final seco y dulzón con un ligero toqueácido. Desequilibrada y aburrida. 330ml bottle. Lager glass. Golden color, crystal clear appearance. White froth & thin crown. Slight sulfury, honey & grassy aromas. Crispy & bitter upfront. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Watery texture. Malty sweetness, harsh grainy & rough bitterness resolve in a dry sweet finish with light acidic touch. Unbalanced & boring.

Kita (975) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 8, 2014
Can, 0.33l, courtesy of Tomaz. Clear pale golden color with medium creamy white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of malt, wheat, grassy hops and honey. Taste starts with light sweet malt, follows refreshing grainy with some fruity notes like citrus and pineapple, while finish is moderate bitter. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Surprisingly good pale lager with pleasant bitterness, almost like in German pilsners, but much more quaffable...

aleigator (173) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
Pale yellow, big head. Fresh, grassy hops, abundant with wheat. Better than expected actually. Wheat and yeast along with refreshing hops. Carbonation is very high, but fits this style well. Chewy, refreshing mouthfeel. Light body,

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - FEB 1, 2014
Thanks to kevnic2008 for that can. Looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, huge head. Starts mild, malty, modest dry. Moldy background. Okay, but nothing special.

MarkoNm (403) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 30, 2014
This Maltese lager pours a completely clear golden color, topped with at least two finger of white foamy head with short retention. The aroma is mild, just some hopps and perhaps a little grains. The taste naturally follows the nose - light, slightly watery, with initial sweetness, but lacking a bit of that bitterness in the end. Not much to it, could be better, but it’s damn good on one of Malta’s sunny beaches.
