Joy of joys, they make two different versions of Fiji Bitter. This is the one they dont 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 (19502) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Auch meinen zweiten Fiji-Test verdanke ich Doppelbock. Das Bitter ist definitiv krftiger als das Gold, was ihm gut steht. Der malzig-herbe Antrunk ist durchaus auch bei heimischen Biere zu finden. Der Abgang allerdings ist weiterhin wssrig und wird nur durch eine leichte Bitterkeit untersttzt. Test vom 25.4.2006, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 8,12,9,7,6,9 - 8,90

Beerhunter111 (18065) - PCastle, 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!

Oakes (16105) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Pale gold. No shelf life - youve 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 its papery. You wont 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.

MiP (15378) - Snderborg, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2016
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.

bhensonb (14486) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Phyllis Svetich. She packed a six pack, and five broke. She gave me the survivor. Thanks! Light, sweet, pale malt aroma. No detectable hop. Orange gold color with a white smear for head. Its a bit fruity, a little bready, and mildly bitter. Medium body with light carbonation. Drinks more like a light ale than a pale lager. Bitter comes herbal, and tends to build up with time. Fiji could have it worse.

Scopey (13311) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle at Leightons, big thanks to Danny. It pours clear golden - amber with a white head. The aroma is sweet, grainy, cheap, white bread, corn, cardboard and white sugar. The taste is dry, bitter - sweet, grainy, grass, cardboard, cereal, soda water and touch of lemon with a short, dry finished. Light - medium body and average carbonation. Taste like a rare country tick lager. Classic example of style.

Bov (12273) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2007 can; courstey of Per Samuelsson - relatively clear golden colour with almost no foam; the nose shows nothing but discrete plastic notes; the very high carbonation almost hides the poor malt body; sweet and no bitterness (the name of the beer must be ironical); finishes surprisingly dry but short and watery - luckily, Im not disappointed because there is a long time that I dont expect anymore to have a good beer coming from a new country
