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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Malta Festival outside European Parliament (Brussels). Golden body with small but promising head. Nose quite strong and noticeable Alcohol content. Taste is sweet, with bread and malts, but also quite alcy. Too much for me. Quite creamy texture. Malt liquour, not a style with promise.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
smells like alcohol and grain. flavor is sweet, bitter, and alcohol. mostly alcohol though. it’s not well-hidden in this beer. this is almost disgusting but not quite that bad. borderline i’d say. just needs to be sold in a cheap 40oz bottle instead of a six pack.

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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear, almost golden beer with a white head. Alcohol, sweetness and maltyness, as well as a vague fruityness in the aroma. The flavor is sweet and malty as well, with some fruityness, a little bitter touch, and surprisingly not so much alcohol, at least not until the end. Medium full, sweetish body. The beer is too strong and unbalanced. I like strong beers, but they need a balance, and the alcohol should be more of the warming kind, than just alcohol. (070914)

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out a slightly cloudy moderate golden color with a head like if you’d poured apple juice too fast. Aroma is of sticky sweet malts, some grains and slight fruit, not much alcohol on the aroma...then comes the taste. Straight up booze, sweet grainy malts, and maybe a touch of fruit, but the alcohol takes the spotlight big time, alcohol is about as well hidden as grease in MC Donald’s.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
