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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Golden pour with a white head. Everything is similar to Fiji Bitter, but weaker/watered down. Closer to a standard mass produced pale lager.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, enjoyed in Fiji. This is a weird little beer, marketed as less filling, lower calories but still full strength and full flavoured. Sounds like an ad for Miller Lite from the 1980’s. Anyway, this beer has less bitter hop character and less sweet cereal malt flavour than both Fiji Bitters (export and regular). Very boring, and closer to a mainstream North American macro lager than the other Fijian lagers.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pretty round bad beer and not very different to Fiji Bitter. Do not know about the not so filling label. Anyway, orange colour, low carbonation, corn and sweet.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A friend brought this back from Fiji for me. Taste was decent, tropical and refreshing- if you close your eyes. It’s all in the mind with this one. Dark golden/orange colour with a large head. Taste is pretty malty.

Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Somewhat ditter with malty aromas. A bit of grassy hoppyness. Not good - Give me a drink with fruits and an umbrella.

Another macro beer. It is passible as somthing to get drunk on. Similar in flavor to an old Budweiser.
