Clear light golden yellow with white foam head. Aroma is not too strong, barley. Taste is nice bittersweet pale, somewhat high carbonated, but real refreshing nice tasting. Short bittersweet aftertaste. A clean, fresh beer. (Pavlodar 201202)

Bottle. Golden beer, fluffy head. Malty nose, some perfume. Sweet flowers. The eagle on the label looks unwell, appropriate for the beer.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 I met Ed at Churchkey about three years ago. He retired from the FAA, as an examiner I think, years ago, and now spends his time seeking out interesting beers, the bars that serve them, and the people that drink them. In other words, a man after my own heart. He is generous to a fault: whenever I see him, his first words, after a warm greeting, are, "Wait right here, I’ll be right back." He then retrieves from the trunk of his car some amazing bottle he’s acquired along the way, more often than not from Casey of Max’s. He doesn’t have a cell phone or a computer, so he doesn’t use the internet - so you can only find him by searching his favorite bars. He has a hand written list of more than 13,000 beers he’s reviewed. Anyway, three years ago, Ed told me he had rated beers from 91 countries, but was stuck, and unable to find any more new countries. He gave me a list of countries he’d tried beers from, which I still carry in my wallet. It took me three years, but tonight I was able to share with Ed beers from countries #99 (Bosnia) and 100, this one. I am proud to call you a friend, Ed, and it has enriched my life to have known you. I wish you all the best in your search for your next centennial, whenever that may be.
Oh, and the beer was a tasty enough lager, a little bit papery with an edge of cardboard, but a shining bright gold color, like Ed’s heart. As Ed graciously described it, "a good hamburger beer, on a hot day." Here’s to you, good sir.

From a bottle at ChurchKey DC, courtesy of Travlr. Thanks. I love them pale lagers! This one is, well, ok. Lots of grain and corn flavors. No hops in evidence. Good for a country tic and not much else.

Ljusgul i färgen litet vitt skum. Doftar svagt av söt malt, frukt, gräs. Metallisk smak, söt malt, fruktig. Trist.

Quite good beer, but it spoiled during the last year, as well as Efes beer in Kazakhstan. It does not has a definite taste and can be bought only because its price. Anyway this is the best beer for such money and one of the best Kazakh beers.
