Oakes' rating

1.5
Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 21, 2013
Pale gold. Grassy hop aroma, with a delicate spiciness. The hop doesn’t show up much on the palate (or even the nose unless it’s really fresh). It’s a fairly thin beer, light with vague hop and a little grainy sourness in the finish. Uneventful, serviceable lager.

TedE (1304) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2017
330ml can into schooner glass, courtesy of Bitterlady. Smells like burnt cardboard and stale bread. Crystal clear golden amber with thin white head. Lightly carbonated. Medium body, taste is mildly bitter, slight zing. Finish is bubblegum sweet turning to a lingering maltiness. Probably too sweet to be really easy-drinking but ice cold in Port Vila, it will do the job. Gets more vegetal as it warms.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2016 330ml can and bottles. Pours lager colour with a thick white head. Aroma is peach and lemon. Flavour is very peachy, plenty of citrus and only a touch of the boiled vegetable notes that so often pop up in the style, and even then only when it warms. After a week of drinking a lot of this, I feel safe in making a decisive judgement. It’s not a good beer, certainly by the standards of this site. However, you shouldn’t come to Vanuatu for the beer, and you can have much worse beer experiences than a few cold Tuskers by the pool at the end of a long day in the sun. It’s really not too bad.

gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle at Erakor Island Resort, Vanuatu, August 2014. Clear light golden with a white head. Very thin and boring with cardboard, bread and some boiled vegetables. Actually really awful.

1.4
mkel07 (5846) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2014
On tap at bar in Port Vila. Rating from January 2014. Very underwhelming for the national beer of Vanuatu. Pale straw colour, big white head, grassy aroma.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2013
Extremely thin pale lager, nothing really to it. Had at a bar in Vila, it was cold and refreshing. Did the job.

1.8
KeefOz (1822) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 Pale golden colour. Moderate carbonation. "Mid" range flavour - not too bland, not too hoppy. An "average" lager. (tasted when there in March 2012).
