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 (19192) - 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!

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Can courtesy of Benzai, thank you sir! My 150th country rating. Sadly, I have never been to Azerbaijan. Clear pale yellow color, thin white head. Aroma of papery white pepper. Taste is plain lemon, more paper. Inoffensive.

Bov (9245) - 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

Rune (7760) - 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).

Benzai (7219) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
Sampled @ RBBSG III. Clear yellow to golden color, small white head that disappears instantly. Smell and taste lightly malts, a slight touch if grains, hay, sweet malts, corn. Low body, low to average carbonation.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 50cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of Benzai. Dorée, col blanc fin. Arôme de corn malt, léger houblonné fermenté et grains. Palais offre ce profil typique de lager est-européenne avec un malt au penchant doux, qcq poignées de houblons nobles ajoutant un fleuri faiblard. ok, mais sans plus.

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.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 6, 2005
Bottled(500ml). –I was pleasantly surprised with this beer, I was expecting something bad, but this stuff is very good. Pretty standard lager aroma (hoppy and light bready), mild carbonation, bitter finish, refreshing and easy drinkable brew
