2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden, with a bit of a white head. Not quite as sweet as Vonu lager but trending to a malty sweetness (adjuncts?). A long dusty, grainy finish. Not terrible, but not the best Fijian beer either. Bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
A clear golden beer with a standard foam head, the taste is quite regular for a lager, the malt flavor prevail over the hops, but the balance is ok.

It's better than Fiji Bitter and is nice enough slammed down ice cold next to the pool.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light gold colour with a little bit of head. The aroma is vaguely malty with light plastic. Light body, a little more plastic, with grainy notes.

Abominable beer, as bad as those Aussie cheap lagers, bottom of the well range. Too sweet, too malty, with a subtle whiff of regurgitation. By far, the worst of three Fijian beers that take the "Fiji" name.

A-- Poured a clear yellow straw color. No head at first, just a white layer of film. Vigorous swirling got a one finger bright white head. Left a soapy layer of lacing. Not a lot of active carbonation.
S-- Creamed sweet corn, sweet bread, stewed cabbage and slightly plastic smell. Gets skunky as it warms up.
T-- More sweet bread, sweet corn and plastic again. Very much an adjunct.
M-- Pretty clean and crisp. Not a lot of hop presence. Mostly malts. Very sweet bread taste in mid and back palate. Get a lot of corn and more corn.
O-- One is fine, two is more than enough. Could not finish beer due to sweetness. That should be more than enough to say about this.

One of the better beers available in the country. It may not taste as good as bitter, but it is more refined hence giving same effects yet lesser after effects. Looks good, but the standard in taste is not maintained, which becomes a major downfall. Other than that, it’s a better than average beer available in the county

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Crystal clear golden coloured body with a pale white head. Aroma of pale malt, light sugars and very little else. Very light-bodied; Almost no malt flavour at all, a touch of alcohol and perhaps some sugars, with a faint herbal note. Aftertaste just as mild as the taste with some water left over, and that’s about it. Overall, not so good and not worth the premium label and premium price - I much preferred Fiji Bitter over this. I sampled one of these 33 cL bottles (one was enough) at the Octopus Resort on Waya Island (Yasawa Chain) in Fiji on 15-20 August 2009 on my honeymoon.

watery weak bland beer. not entirely sure why this merits the name premium. The premium tag does not justify the additional cost that this beer somehow commands. Drank this in bottle form. Perhaps on draught this would be better.
