Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2010
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.

Rune (8827) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 14, 2010
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).

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 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.

gyllenbock (5306) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle in Baku, March 2008. Clear golden with a rather small white head. Weak aroma and taste. Grass, bread some fruits and rather sweet. A boring lager, there are to many of them.

Canned@omhper. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is quite much saltwater mixed with grains and mild rubbery notes. Flavour is grains, saltwater and rather boring. Not too unclean in the flavour.

omhper (20449) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2009
Canned. Clear golden, small head. Fruity grassy nose. Medium sweet with clean, ruonded mouthfeel. Grainy malt together with a fair amount of spicy grassy hops gives it sufficient subtance to be pretty good quencher. Finishes with some late bitterness. As a countries mainstream lager it is not bad at all - and I’m happy to finally having found an Azerbaijani beer!

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pale, bland. Bland taste and aroma of corn. Not much else. At least I got this country out of the way! I won’t drink again unless I find myself in Azerbaijan.

unclemike (2401) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Straw color, the head does not last that long aroma of sweet apples taste of chocolate and the finish is pretty spicy not bad for a beer from some place i cant even say

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 24, 2008
Pours straw with a thin white head. Smells earthy and sweet with some skunky hints. Tastes of caramel, some soapy hints, matellic with a touch of pepper on the finish.

Bov (10060) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 14, 2008
courtesy of Marc Elsborg - slightly hazy blond colour; very little foam left; aroma of dust and paper with a note of old apples and burnt malts; moderate malt body and carbonation; sweet with a low and unclean bitterness; a bit dry and short aftertaste with more dusty notes - deeply uninteresting and not really under control
