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.

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.

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?

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,

(12oz bottle best by Jun 10 thanks to Fratto, the king of Pale Lagers and City Brewing) clear pale yellow, soapy white head. Nose of butter, apple and alcohol. Taste of nasty apples, alcohol, buttery and really gross. Nasty linger, alcohol and an earthy grape taste left on the palate.

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.
