Golden coloured with a slight chill haze. Plastic nose with a hint of green apples. Verylight bodied, slight fruitiness, and about 0.01 bittering units. Still the best Fijian beer I’ve had...

Koelschtrinker (15557) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
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. Test vom 25.4.2006, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 6,7,12,6,7,7 - 7,50

You know it, you love it - bland international lager!!! Freakin’ cheap-looking can, too.

Lubiere (12241) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2004
Hazy yellow beer with small floaties. Yeasty aroma with light fruits. Sweet fruity taste with some bitterness midway. Almost like a very light blanche. Thanks to Presario. May 2004.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2005
Very pale yellow colour, white head. Adjunct-loaded aroma, corn, faint straw. Thin and watery body with a sweetish finish. This is not good, but after four hours of delayed flights, this is working for me.

DuffMan (8794) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
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.

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.

Several cans while on vacation in Fiji. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy and faintly sweet base, with straw, and very mild bitterness. Decent.

jgb9348 (5428) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2011
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.

reebtogi (5347) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
375ml stubby bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leave some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a malty sweetness. Grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A typical lager, similar to most domestic lagers.
