Cisk Lager is a Pale Lager brewed by Simonds Farsons Cisk Plc., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a tumbler from a bottle.
The lager pours a crystal-clear straw and is topped by a thin cap of fizzy white froth that bubbles away rapidly. Effervescence is visible in the glass.
Its aroma is malty with a scent of dough and a hint of floral hops.
Cracker malt leads the palate and a mild bite of floral and grassy hops follows. A mellow sweetness of honey rounds out the finish. Saltine cracker ties the palate together.
Its feel is smooth and slick with a light body and moderate carbonation.
The Cisk Lager is the most widely-found beer in Malta and it’s better than many of the pale lagers found around the world. But that isn’t saying much. Consumed on a warm sunny day and this refreshing, easy drinking brew can be enjoyable.
