Finally Azerbaijan! Thanks to luttonm for bringing this! Poured a pale golden body with a tiny white head. Light dusty herbal aroma with some egginess. Empty taste, egg, slightly tangy, some light herbal notes. But hey, it’s smooth - must be that "famous" Azeri water.

I only picked this up to cross Azerbaijan off my list. It’s a typical Euro Pale Lager. It pours a clear gold colour, slightly dark, with a huge white head. Aroma is primarily malty with some weak floral hops, and the taste is slightly grainy, a tad sweet, and acidic. Again, a country conquered.

500 ml. bottle. Thanks Bro! Pours a pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and hops? Taste is malt, grain, bread, and grass. Not too bad at all.

Pale cilear light yellow with small white foam head. Aroma is typical malty lager. Taste is bit flat, low sparkling, bit malty. Short aftertaste of no quality mentioning. But I can imagine when it’s hot outside this tastes much better. (Baku 201211)

O, you are reading this? Well, let me tell you there is nothing like kicking back with a luke warm xirdi on a hot summers day. Drink it if you’ve got it.

Can. Pours clear golden with a small white head. A bit watery and sweet as most industrial lagers, but not bad. Better than Efes and absolutely drinkable, but nothing special.

500ml bottle at the National Philaharmonia Cafe in Baku 1. Apr.2010. Clear golden body. Hoppy aroma with notes of cheese. Sweet fruits and corn, with a hint of white pepper in the finish. Ok, but a bit uninteresting.

500ml can, brought back from Baku for sharing at a rating session, thanks to Elisabeth. Clear, metallic golden body. Small white head. A bit of sweaty hops to the nose. Taste of corn and sweet fruits, banana notes. Spiced bitter endnotes. Flat carbonation. Possible to drink and rather decent tasting for a pale lager (Tromsø, 13.04.2010).

Tried at homewbrew club this evening in a 1.5 lt plastic bottle. Hazy looking golden body with short lasting head. Aroma of hops with grainy malt taste that wasn’t that great.
