why change a good thing
I,ve drank pure blondes for years in preferance to db export33. The new version has lost its crispness and tastes like a very average low alcahol beer.I have diabetes and the old variety was certainly low enough in carbs for me. Looks like it'll be the nz stuff from now on
The Death of Pure Blonde.......
Brewed carbonated water.....we too started drinking pure blonde at its launch back around 2004. We rolled with the few minor changes until now. I emailed CUB to provide feedback expressing disappointment that after all these years of enjoyment, we would now have to find an alternative beer. I received a courteous reply advising the new Pure Blonde is gluten free & extremely popular, with little acknowledgement of what we considered "Constructive Feedback". Very disappointing.
They have killed a good beer.
If blonde means colorless, that is exactly what my once favorite beer has become in its newest form. No flavor whatsoever. It's like drinking carbonated water. I wish I had only bought a six pack instead of a carton like I always did with Pure Blonde. The rest will go to waste as, after many years of enjoying Pure Blonde, I now start searching for new favorite beer. A shame really. Take a good product and stuff it up.
Bring Back the Original Version
The new Blonde is poor substitute for the original Blonde. The new one is a bottle blonde whereas the old one was a Pure Blonde. Seriously, why did you change a good beer for a reduced alcohol, bad tasting one! I will now be changing to another beer from another brewer. CUB, listen to the market and bring the old one back.
When It comes to beer it is always going to be very personal as it comes down to a taste and we all have different tastes.
I dont mind the pure blond beer as it is a nice lighter type of taste. Maybe refreshing..
Not too sure about the low carb side of things. This does not draw me in as really if I was trying to be real healthy I guess I would not have a beer at all. But I guess some people might like the whole low carb thing as well.
