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.

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 its hot outside this tastes much better. (Baku 201211)

Sadly a lost-one and a funeral bought this beer to me. A wonderful family I now inherited obviously know my love of all things beer and out this came. So thanks to global engineering companies in Azerbaijan and thanks, dearly, to my wifes family. A few warnings, though, beckoned as I was offered this. It had a lot of congealed sediment on the bottom, for its age a risk I dare take, I swore I would taste it anyway - who ever died of a bad beer?
Into a tall stein as the night progressed back at my home. Is it unfiltered, conditioned in the bottle, because at this age it produced a cloudy yellow-straw with such furious, fine streams of carbonation raising a triumphant two to three inch crown up and out the stein. This held, it was remarkable, and it laced magnificently as it waned. Big grassy nose, fresh mown with some vegetal notes of broccoli and celery. The nose is also salty, a little fore-head sweat!, and musty barnyard, but doesnt disagree, doesnt taint personally. Its soft and creamy in the mouth, grainy - all pale, fresh cracked Pils malt, the dust of - and not too bad at all as it sinks into the depths. Sweet front, lightly pasty, a shallow tartness of sour malt and Perle like hops. Equates nicely amongst former Soviet states and the lagers they produce. Somehow earthy, gritty but not too much to make one content. The body so light it whisks with furore across the palate. Dusty, creamy, grainy swallow, zero for bitterness but so subtle it works finely into balance. Length is all milled pale malt with a sourish tang that manages to dry the palate voicing towards another. This could be awful, could be good, its just one of those beers you drink and like, and turn the brain off to. Its not bad actually, so cheers to my wifes uncle for this. (50cL, 08/01/05)
