But, I digress. Low carb beer in the US combines with low alcohol...it is very much a drinking the proverbial "cat's ...". However, the beauty of Australia and Australian low carb beers is that they come in full alcohol volume strength. So, less carbs and full strength. At 5% the Skinny Blonde is not a powerful brew, but it is a good drink.
The beer itself is the result of a couple of fellas sharing a few beers over a foosball game down Bondi Beach way. The fellas responsible obviously said something along the lines of, "bugger this for a joke, we can make better beer than this! In fact we already do with our home brews! We should go into business!" The rest they say, is history - Brothers Ink was born along with the Skinny Blonde.
That was just the front label. The back label states that Daisy is unequivocally a natural born blonde with no preservatives or additives, no liposuction, no botox, and no breast augmentation. Now, if that does not convince you to drink this beer, then I am not sure what will convince you ;)
Ultimately, the label acknowledges that drinking the Skinny Blonde is not going to make you funnier, more charming, or even a great dancer. But, then again, they are in the eye of the beholder. I am always much funnier after a couple of beers (or when I finish my Masters Degree).
The beer itself is refreshing and probably a healthy alternative. There is not a lot of hops action and very little bitterness. It is probably at its best as a session beer. It is light so would work well with meat, maybe throw another snag on the barbie!
I reckon I will give the beer another shot in my fridge. The fading red bikini has nothing to do with it, I swear!
