reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
375ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy and grassy with a hint of citrus. Taste is a grainy malty sweetness with a grassy hop and light citrus bitterness. Light bodied with good carbonation which tickles the tongue. A typical brew for the style.

375ml brown bottle. Clear gold pour, small white head. Nose has sweet malt, bit of straw and grain. Taste is grainy, straw notes, light grass. Light grassy aftertaste, typical light body and high carbonation for style. Not bad really, has a bit more hop flavour and bitterness than usual for the style.

Golden amber in color. Musky cardboard aroma with a slight metallic "tang" to it. I do detect a slight presence of bitter citrusy hops. Overall, its drinkable but just barely. Thanks for BarZigKin for sharing and giving me my Fiji rating! Much appreciated!!!

37,5 cl bottle from a friend. Pours golden with a white head. Tasty lager that works well with light food.

Pale gold. No shelf life - you’ve really got to find the stores that turn this over. At its best, Fiji Bitter is bland, and has little character. Yes, that is what it aspires to, because otherwise it’s papery. You won’t really ever find much malt or hop or any of that stuff, but it wins for having fewer overt flaws that the other Fijian beers.

A very ordinary beer but it tastes good when you're sitting in the pool drinking it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bif (1712) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Pours a clear light yellow color with a small white head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma is a bit musty, with some malt sweetness and some grain. taste has some hops crispness, malt sweetness and a bit of grain. Mild bitterness and has a fairly clean finish. Light body, a bit crisp and refreshing. Not a lot here. Beer that goes well with hot, humid weather.

22/VIII/2012 375ml bottle @ home - Brewed: 28/12/11, BB: 23/IX/12 (2012-959) Thanks to Thomas and Annelies for the bottle!

Clear blond beer, small aery white head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: pretty nutty, some caramel, bit herbal. Mf: ok carbon, medium body, smooth texture. Taste: pretty malty, citric hops, herbal. Aftertaste: nice clean crisp bitterness, some citrus, hint of malts. Definitely not the worst beer ever, surprised at the low ratings. Maybe I was thirsty? :p

fletchfighters (1276) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2012
A-- poured a clear copper color. Small white head. With swirling get a half finger of head. Some visible carbonation and soapy lacing with the beer. S-- Grassy, vegetables, slightly metallic, and touches of bread. T-- Some skunky hop presence (POR I am assuming), grassy, stewed vegetables and a funky metallic taste. M-- Bitterness comes from a strange metallic taste. Warmer it gets the more obvious it becomes. Metal and plastic. Some bread in mouth. O-- Can is the better way to taste this. Saw a lot of FB on uncovered trucks in Suva. Highly prone to skunking in bottle format. Taste format is almost the same to VB, also made by CUB. Is it bad? Yeah but on a beach or in a hammock and it is in the 90’s and high humidity are you really going to want an Abacus? Some reason it works here. Then again, it is Fiji time.
