Share This Review

Cisk Pilsner is a Czech-style Pilsener 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.

Appearance

The lager pours a crystal-clear straw and is topped by a finger-thick cap of fizzy white froth that bubbles away rapidly. A continuous stream of fine bubbles rises in the glass.

Aroma

The aroma is predominantly sweet with a scent of grain and honey; a hint of noble hops counters in the background.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of soft doughy bread and rises gently to a very mild bite of peppery noble hops. A hint of caramel and bread rounds out the finish.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is relatively smooth with a medium body and a little less-than-moderate carbonation. Finishes somewhat dryly.

Overall

The Cisk Pilsner has an understated but well-rounded palate that leans malty with a pleasant hop finish. Those who prefer more bite in a pilsener should look elsewhere. Its feel could use a little more carbonation but otherwise, this is a light and refreshing brew. It wouldn’t be a go-to pilsener anywhere else, but on Malta, it’s not a bad option.
