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.

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).

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.

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2009
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.

gyllenbock (4459) - 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.

Acknud (1078) - 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.

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.
