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".

330ml bottle into schooner glass. Brewed & bottled for Pinnacle liquor but identical otherwise. Aroma of stale bread and distant malt. Golden amber beer with fast disappearing head. Zingy in the mouth with initial bitterness. Finish has slight maltiness followed by tinny hops. Not bad for a ’supermarket’ beer.

Stale and slightly fruity aroma. Clear golden colour with poor head. Fruity up front with honey finish. Light body with medium carbonation.

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 (1390) - 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.

’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.

mkel07 (5221) - 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.

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!

No carbonation and straw corn flavour. No head at all. Pretty awful. Thought it was a Tooheys product at first.
