Typical low carb lager
Not everyone's favourite, this beer is exceptionally light style and pretty tasteless. However, it is also exceptionally well brewed to achieve this level of super clean. Not interesting but certainly not offensive in any way. On a 40C day in Adelaide, goes down really well but I don't drink it in winter time
Purchased in March 2019.
Tastes like a lite beer
I asked the bartender for a full strength beer and was recommended pure blonde. It has no taste it lacks body and it tastes like a lite beer. I really dislike the flavor of a lite beer no matter how good the claims. This doesn't cut the mustard.
Purchased in February 2019 for $8.00.

Use to be a great beer
They use to make a great drop 100% of the time, now it’s a one out of four purchases that tastes good, then when you say something to staff , your labelled as a trouble , it tastes like beer that’s been cold then left to bake in hot sun , then sold to the public, how can a company have such varying tastes in one brew, I now have to change brews as the quality control is not there and it’s embarrassing to keep bringing it up with staff.
The after taste was similar to being off so tipped out half and gave it another go following night still no better. Lacking in any form of quality no fresh flavours no balance of bubbles. I've had dodgy home brew that went down better. Still have four in the fridge. May have to use them for making damper, no good for anything else.
Inconsistent quality poor quality
I enjoy a pure blond however lately it has been inconsistent sometimes tasting off.i buy it from different locations and still find its hit and miss I poured 3 down the sink last night and the bottle shop just think your being fussy or trying to rip them off. I’ve tried to be loyal to both the bottle shop and the brand however pure blond has made this impossible
Bring back the original
Decided to get a 6 pack last night. Havnt drank it for a while. Noticed the new label “ultra low carb lager”. Little did i know the recipe has changed . It is terrible. It claims “ full flavour-no compromise”. Haha wat a cop out. Dont they have taste buds? On par drinking soda water. There is 0 satisfaction in this beer . No wonder it was on special !!!
As a lifetime Coeliac this beer is a godsend. No longer do I have to drink extremely sugary cider or pay $$$$ for "Gluten-Free" beer.
It's not the most flavourful beer on the market but if you want to have ultra-low carbs/calories with a decent amount of ABV this is the beer for you. (Although the new premium mid has lower calories I think but unsure of it's gluten content)
You're not going to have the flavour of a full carb-laden beer so I don't know why people are whinging. Clearly they are targeting a pretty popular segment of the mark...et because it is sold everywhere and lots of people I know drink it purely because it's a "guilt-free" beer that they don't feel bloating drinking after having 5 pints of it. The market for health conscious social drinkers appears larger than stay-at-home "carton a week" drinkers commenting below. This beer has an edge over the competition in this market. Again, thank you CUB for a readily available beer a Coeliac can drink!!
Tried it as it was on special with a Coles voucher. Never again. 80% less carbs maybe, but at least 90% less flavour. The cider is no better either. $10 six pack may look like a decent price, but if you tip most of it down the sink, it's quite expensive swill.
As for the low carb bit - claimed carb content of 1.7 g per serve (from memory). So a normal lager beer has about 10 g of carbs per bottle (I think that matches the Heineken I had recently). Mark Sisson (author of The Primal Blueprint) suggests a carb intake of less than 100 g pe...r day for weight maintenance and less than 50 g per day for weight loss. Let's be honest, if you're drinking multiple beers per day, you're not likely to be controlling other foods down to 50 g carbs total per day to achieve ketogenic weight loss. So if you are counting carbs, look at the 100 g target - you can probably deal with a beer having 10 g carbs if you're otherwise eating clean. Have one serving of a good beer and enjoy it. The alcohol in multiple "low-carb" beers is probably going to screw with your metabolism (even if ethanol isn't included as a caloric carbohydrate on the label) just as much as the extra 8 g of carbs (per bottle) would.
