Joy of joys, they make two different versions of Fiji Bitter. This is the one they don’t export. A pity, as they seemed to have chosen better adjuncts to ferment than in the Export Bitter. It is golden coloured and slightly hazy, and boosts a lovely plastic nose. It has a hint of maltiness, bears clear marks of adjuncts, and has no bitterness a human being can detect.

Can courtesy of blipp, shared at a DC tasting, thank you sir! Clear golden color. Aroma of herbal straw. Taste is papery lemon. Leighton (21085) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Daniel for the country scoop. Pours clear gold with a creamy topping. The nose holds simple pale bread, cereal, straw. Light sweet flavour with some husky grains, more cereal, hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Lightly drying in the finish with a whisper of white grape, more crispy cereal, straw. Simplistic but not bad. Beerhunter111 (20344) - P´Castle, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2016
Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! Pours clear dark golden colour with a mid-sized most good lasting white head. Aroma of grainy malt, mild bitter hops. Taste of grainy and mild sweet malt, mild bitter hops, boring! Rasmus40 (20318) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2017

Auch meinen zweiten Fiji-Test verdanke ich Doppelbock.
Das Bitter ist definitiv kräftiger als das Gold, was ihm gut steht. Der malzig-herbe Antrunk ist durchaus auch bei heimischen Biere zu finden. Der Abgang allerdings ist weiterhin wässrig und wird nur durch eine leichte Bitterkeit unterstützt.

Bottle, 4.6%. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is malt, grainy, little caramel and a little dusty. Flavour is malt, grainy, medium sweet, little thin, little toasted and a little bitter. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Pale gold. No shelf life - you’ve really got to find the stores that turn this over. At its best, Fiji Bitter is bland, and has little character. Yes, that is what it aspires to, because otherwise it’s papery. You won’t really ever find much malt or hop or any of that stuff, but it wins for having fewer overt flaws that the other Fijian beers.

Bottle, 4.6%. Clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is not exactly malty, but not thin either. Has a decent hop note, not fruity or flavourful, but OK bitterness, and quite clean. Good mouthfeel for the style.
