2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
