2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz can from a vacation co-worker who was able to get me a (second) Fiji tick. Shared.
A: Gushy head, orange-straw. Head turns into a thin white trail.
N: Dough, cracker, pineapple, pine,biscuits ,grains, and grapes.
T: Sweet dough, a tiny amount of bitterness, and some unexpected sourness.
M: Oily with a medium body. Bigger than I’d expect for the style.
O: Mediocre at best, but I’d rather have the bitter if I was sitting in Fiji.

12 ounce can thanks to Luke. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. Grainy light fruity nose. The flavor is doughy, light almost sour straw, some sweeter fruit, basically a grainy earthy lager. OK. Fiji tick! Hell yes.

A light beer, golden color with a small foam head, the bitterness of hops aren’t felt, this is the one I less enjoyed of the Fijian beers I’d tried.

One of the favorites in the country :-) Not really a beer expert, but am very particular when it comes to taste, appearance and the after effects. This beer is comes in the ugly ancient-looking bottles, just like fiji bitter and the new taki beer! Other than that, it’s nice beer

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. Rating #25. Crystal clear golden pour with a white head. Sweet malt and corn aroma, not to pleasant. Flavor was similar, more corn and malt with a slight bitterness. Glad to have tried it, not something I need to try again. (2196)

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden coloured body with a slightly deeper orangish hue. Aroma of light malt, a touch of very light hops and a more grassy and herbal note. Light-bodied; Assertive malty flavour with a very mild subdued earthy and floral taste, almost no hops at all to speak of and some very mild alcohol notes. Aftertaste is mild and not showing much aside from a touch of light malt. Overall, a subdued beer and showing quite a bit less complexity than Fiji Bitter. I sampled a few of these 375 mL stubby bottles at the Octopus Resort on Waya Island (Yasawa Chain) in Fiji on 15-20 August 2009 on my honeymoon.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
mass market fizzy lager from Fiji. The fact that Fosters are behind this should give you an idea of how bland this tastes. In its native Fiji this is dirt cheap.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
375ml can. Golden amber colour with a soft white head, clear and waht you expect from a pale lager. Grainy aroma is not much to get excited about while the flavor is not too bad, sweet and malty.

Dem Doppelbock verdank ich diesen Test meines Landes #39
Zu dem von Doppelbock beschriebenen Hauch von Malzigkeit schmecke ich zusätzlich noch einen leicht hopfigen Ton. Ansonsten schließe ich mich der Beschreibung an. Erfrischend, aber zu wässrig.
