Xirdalan Lager Beer
Very fresh 500ml bottle. Pours clear gold with a medium-sized white head that fades in a couple of seconds. Aroma is grain, grass. Taste is light sweet, malt, a bit skunky, grain, light bitterness. Very drinkable and pretty decent. Reminds me of Baltika 7.

50cl can from a minimarket near the train station in Baku and enjoyed at the night train to Sheki. As expected mostly the usual grainy pale lager aroma. Feels almost cleaner and more drinkable than Xirdalan. Sweet and grainy, but drinkable enough.

Green 44cl bottle from some minimarket in Baku. Pours clear very pale golden with a minimal, white head. Light grainy aroma with notes of cooked vegetables and possibly hints of grassy hops too. Watery, slightly unpleasant and not much to write home about. Rest will go down the drain.

Clear 44cl bottle from some minimarket in Baku. Pours clear pale golden with a modest white head. Light grainy aroma with slightly fruity notes, hints of cooked vegetables and possibly hops too. Watery, mild and not much flavour, but cleaner than expected. Maybe it’s the heat, but it’s somewhat drinkable and refreshing. Liked it more than the regular Xirdalan.

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.

From the clear bottle onwards, the quality jumps out at you.....Poured light golden with no head. Aroma of chemically sweet malt. Medium body, flavour is fairly similar to the aroma. Not the worst beer I’ve ever come across, but fairly dire.

Plastic bottle shared during Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Session 3. Big thanks to Rene! Pours clear, pale yellow with a creamy, white head. The nose has light dry cereal, hay and paper. Light sweet flavour, with sugary white bread, grains and cereal, dough, faint paper, straw. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Papery finish, lightly sweet, with more cereal, minimal bitterness. About what you would expect of a pale lager from an obscure country.
