500 ml. green bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Thanks to Benzai! Clear golden. Nose is heavy on skunk with some sweet grains in the back. Tastes of sweet corn mash, some grains & plenty of skunk. Fizzy. Eh another lousy pale lager.

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.

Many thanks to Nisse666 for this sample! Grainy sweetish beginning. Hints of grainy sourness, malty, easy to drink with a nice malty base. The bitterness is low, smooth and soft with a refreshing malty body with not too much grain. Very easy to drink, soft with a moderate sweetness and really not a bad brew.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
