Great tasting beer, definately a favourtie of mine, perfect for a drink in the hot sun. Has won prestigious international brewing awards and is recognized as part of Malta’s appeal... Ratspeed (1) - - JUN 9, 2016 does not count
Drank this many times! Easy drinking and crisp taste. Living in the UK its always been hard to find but have now found a local company in Chelmsford that stocks most of the Farsons beers. Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2015
Quite nice and refreshing in the heat of La Valleta. FIne lagery to have some food with and thin too. FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2010
A - Typical clear, golden straw color with a lot of bubbles and a large foamy, sticky white head. Pretty good retention that eventually settles into a thin sticky layer of lace.
S - Good Pilsener malt and a bit of bready aroma. A fair amount of herbal and floral hops as well. Sweet malt aroma is most dominant though; however, it doesn’t really have the vegetable, corny, adjunct smell I was somewhat expecting.
T - Starts with a touch of grainy taste. Quickly some floral and herbal hops come out. A touch of grassy hops and mineral taste comes out mid sip with the sweet malt taste in the background. Finishes with a bit of a bready taste and some grassy hops. Clean taste, but a little thin and light on flavor, especially at the beginning of the sip, as it finishes a bit stronger.
M - Light to medium body (a bit more heft than I was expecting) with a healthy amount of carbonation. Pretty crisp and just a bit of a drying finish.
D - Pretty drinkable beer. A fair amount of hops on a nice Pilsener malt base. Very refreshing and goes down easy. I would drink another if it was given to me, but it doesn’t necessarily make me want another one.
Notes: Best before July 2010. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from a lager from Malta, but I wasn’t expecting much. This was better than was I thought it may be though. Solid lager taste without a vegetable/corny/adjunct taste. The taste was a bit light and thin for me though. That said, it is an easy to drink and decent tasting beer with a fair amount of hops for the style. I don’t think I would search for it, or probably even get it again (unless it was on sale), but I would drink it again if I was offered. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2010
On tap at Malta Festival outside European Parliament (Brussels). Orange body with short, fuzzy head. Quite a malty nose and toasty. Taste is quite sweet of sweetbread. Some bitterness. Not bad at all.

Frothy lager with a lightly hopped aroma and dry pilsner like flavour. Overall an OK strong lager. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 12, 2008
Can 500 ml MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2008
Appearance: Very good clarity with solid full of depth golden color. Medium large white snowy cap on top with some lace created.4-
Nose Fresh hop aroma up front with clean quiet sweet honey like character.6+
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied with light yet easily distinguishable hop profile. Slightly metallic with sweet warming due to alcohol body. Bigger than average with more alcohol than usual but I like this way in this sample. Solid brew.
Can-Pours a pale sparkling yellow gold. The nose is grainy and full of lemon and honey with a good dose of subtle hops. Tastes of subtle sweet lemon and biscuit with honey and grains, leading to dry, mild, bittering hops. Not groundbreaking, but certainly better than expected. gunnar (9333) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2013
Shared bottle ,thanks to Kåre. Pours clear golden, small white head. Aroma is malty, weak fruits. Taste is moderate sweet, a bit more body than the ordinary Cisk, but still refreshing, but a bit boring.

Golden slightly malty. At first it appeared to be a well balanced lager but after a while it became apparent that it was really quite ordinary.
