long lost bad notes from when had this in Fiji last year. In a can. Even better. Yellow straw color. fast fading white head. Light straw and malt. Some corn sweetness but not much really. Sweet taste. Lots of corn sweetness with sweet malt. After a week in Fiji I thought this was the second best beer I had drank all week long. Much better than the Fiji range that was local. Must have been the can

Pale golden colored, clear, small non lasting white head. Aroma of some malt, mostly adjunct, corn and metal. Taste is medium sweet malt, corn, adjuncts, metal, apple, low+ grassy bitterness. Light bodied, average carbonation.

Thanks kajser for sharing this with us! Golden body, big white head. Dusty as fuck apple/herbal messy aroma, malty. Empty taste dusty as fuck, very weak maltiness, somewhat dry finish. Almost no aftertaste, thankfully, peachy note from some adjunct or the other. Em... smooth? Not the most godawful tropical lager you’ll find but still nope.

Once again best when had fresh in PNG. From bottle into chilled glass. Not as good as the non-export in my opinion, but the apple didn’t fall far from the tree - very similar to the original but with less malt and bitterness

Pours a pale straw color with a foamy white head. Aroma of cirtus, malt sweetness and grain. Taste od citrus, light malt sweetness and grainy. Decent bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body with a Euro Lager feel. Beer goes quite well with the tropical climate. When in Rome........

Bottle courtesy of Cantabrian, thank you sir! Pours crystal clear golden yellow, fluffy white headwith good retention. Aroma of white pepper and straw. Taste is plain and lager-like. No real faults. Not a bad developing country lager.

Many grateful thanks to Cantabrian for this beer. I stuck my nose over the glass and for all money, it could have been Becks or Heineken, Beineken or Hecs. It has that self-same international lager aroma (so at least it traveled okay). The flavour was the same as the afore mentioned other lagers. I have to say, for a beer from the back of beyond, it could have been miles worse.
