3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Odeed. Nose is lots of banana, light alcohol, and hints of bubblegum and lacquer thinner.Clear yellow orange with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is banana, a strong malty presence, and that hint of lacquer thinner. Kind of reminds in a way of a very strong weizenbock with the banana. Since the highest rated malt liquor I have rated is #45 out of the top 50, I guess this will be my highest rated. Do the best malt liquors come from Malta?

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Way better than the original cisk lager mainly due to its potent unwatered down nature. Malty strong flavor.

Bottle. Yelow with a small creamy head. Strong in alcohol presence but nothing else. Tried whilst on holiday in Malta during September 2011.Not easy to find. Different to most other lagers in Malta but nothing to offer but its strength,

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden pour with a white head. Strong malt and alcohol aroma, a little bit of candied fruit on the end. Sweet and dried fruit flavor, a little alcohol on the finish. Excellent beer for its style and although a bit heavy for the mediteranean weather still pretty refreshing.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear orange golden with a quickly diminishing white head. The aroma is a corn malt and cereal. Medium mouthfeel with a corn malt and honey. Not too much going on with this one.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
20110117 12oz bottle thanks to dmac. I’ve been aging this one until it reached proper maturity. Phenomenal aroma of banana-bubblegum paint thinner is so overpowering that it’s making me excited for my first sip almost immediately. Lovely pale yellow beneath thin white foam that lasts. Flavor is actually not as shockingly bad as expected, but is almost totally dominated by the alcohol and some waffle-like sweetness. Lingering heat. Meh, I’ve had worse. Thanks for the Malta tick, Dave!
