2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, skunk and cheap malt. Sweet flavour of malt and yeast, complemented by heavy bitter notes of alcohol (and to some extent hops). Lingering alcohol presence. Bitter finish. I don’t like this beer style and I don’t like this particular beer, either. Still, I have tasted worse SPLs.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light gold, quite dull, no head. Plastic aroma and a bit of alcohol. Taste is only a little plasticy, and it is cleaner, less grainy than regular Cisk. For the type, it’s positively civilized. Malt liquor for adults.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml light brown bottle from local "supermarket" in Malta. Tasty strong lager. You’ve had one, you’ll know what this tastes like. Little difference. I enjoyed this. Sweet and malty. Some cereal notes (as expected), and a little bit of glue. Yummy. Bring it on! (I’m so glad there is a local strong lager on Malta!)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing thin beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, caramel, and malt, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
33cl from a supermarked in Sliema. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Classic malt liquor, very sweet, quite malty with a very noticable alcohol content. A bit unpleasant, but drinkable in case of emergency. Way to sweet and alcoholic for my taste, but hints of fruit comes along as I drink. Drinkable, but best avoided in my opinion.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium Yellow with a thick lasting white nice lacy head. Smells of sweet malt, grain, with a light fruitiness. There is a bit of staleness. Thin oily body that seems a little syrupy. Tastes of sweet malt, light caramel on the start with fruit like peach with a light bitter citrus lemon that are found in all the other Cisk beers. A touch of alcohol and pepper on the end. Dry. The aftertaste leaves a bit of grass. I’m impressed by how drinkable it is. Its smooth for 9% and not at all harsh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,33l bottle as gift from Malta. Clear, pale orange color with small, creamy, white head. Strong liquor, mlt and alcohol odor. Heavily alcohol flavour altough it’s cold. But behind the alcohol there’s a malt and spicy hop flavour. It’s a bit caramel malty. I think it’s too much alcohol for this kind of a beer. Intereting that it isn’t sweet like other Barley Wines, but it’s light bitter. Medium body, slick texture, biting carbonation. Light bitter, liquor finish with alcohol - of course. Not a bad barley wine, I like this hoppy feeling behind the heavy alcohol content. But I prefer other styles of high ABV beers.

yellow with minimal head. booze and corn and some more booze. slightly sweeter than the average lager. the only redeeming feature seems to be that this is from Malta.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours pale yellow with a medium, beige head. The aroma is molasses, corn syrup, and white bread. The flavor is unpleasantly sweet, and the aftertaste is sour and awful. The palate is medium, grainy, and sticky. Overall, this is a terrible, malty beer, with mediocre aroma, and repulsive flavor.
