COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Platinum Blonde is a Vienna styled lager with light floral citrus notes, allowing the hops to shine through. Brewed using the best local and imported ingredients, this Blonde is fermented further to leave very few carbohydrates. True flavour with less than half the carbohydrates of standard lagers. Produced for the Australian Woolworth’s by IB as "Six Stars Breweries".

Actually is not as bad as I thought when I read the label. It pours a clear dark yellow beer, small head, standard carbonation, with some grass and cereal notes. Flavor is dominated by malt flavors, not too much bitterness from the hops with a crisp and flat flavor at the end.

Maris (916) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 11/8/2013. Pours a clear bright golden with a small head. Has a slight grassy, grainy aroma. The flavour features a little sweet malt followed by a common macro metallic hop bitterness. Has a light body and medium carbonation. Actually a bit better than I was expecting for a low carb beer, but still quite horrible. I can’t think why anyone would want to drink this type of gear on a regular basis.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2012
’Vienna’ bwooohahaha. Anyways....
Orange gold and bright with sodapop carbonation. Well retained, sudsy, snow-white head manages some good legs. Nose is dominated by staling hops and fresh mown grass with a hint of sour malt, fairy floss and straw. Carbonic bite upfront inside before becoming dull and flat in the back. A little cardboard, a little straw, light grass and sour edge, watery and thin in general. Dry crisp finish to its merit. Lacks definition or at least, at least, flavour. Average lawn mower beer.

Clear amber colour with no head or alcing. Hop malt chemical aroma with some stae ashtray thrown in. Bitter hop ashtray flavour slight hops. Flat palate.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2010
330ml bottle. Thin, watery and golden in colour with a modest head that disappears quickly. Offensive skunky aroma of grain and malt. Tastes as bas as it smells. Again low carb equals low flavour.

Dervock (404) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle - another generic low carb beer, did think it was better than some. Flavour was light malt and there was a bit of hop present, which is not what you get with a lot of these!

madquacker (1019) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2009
No carbonation and straw corn flavour. No head at all. Pretty awful. Thought it was a Tooheys product at first.

DuffMan (6172) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle. Another "low-carb" gimmick beer. Deep golden, big white head. Skunky euro-hop aroma. Simple pale malt profile, a little appley. Short clean finish. I didn’t suffer through this, but not enough here to come back to. And really, what the hell is the point of low-carb beer? COME ON MAN!

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2009 I was pleasantly surprised while rating this, as it seemed no where near as horrible as I remembered. Perhaps leaving it in a cupboard for 4 months improved it... Pale amber, white head dissipates to thin layer rapidly. Aroma is of weak grainy malt, with a very slight floral hops hint. Not so pleasant solvent notes, as well as the expected skunk. Very mild malt taste, with watery cloying finish that has next to no bitterness. Very watery, but what would you expect from a pale lager.
