3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crisp lemon aroma in a yellow pour. Similarly crisp lager like body with a surprisingly tart finish. An acquired taste (I guess).

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Burleigh Brewing, pours a clear pale blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out biscuity malt and light herbal notes. Flavour is along the same lines, but is very stripped down. Biscuity malt and a touch of a herbal quality. Weak and uninspired.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured a clear golden colour with 5mm of white foamy head that retained OK but laced poorly. Carbonation moderate to high with coarse bubbles. Aroma of grainy malt and no obvious hops. Taste sour and tart then grainy; no hops bitterness. Light body, bordering on watery.
Crisp and smooth if drunk cold with a bland finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle. Pours clear with minimal head, not too bad, pretty smooth, I’d drink it again.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle into glass. Bought some of these to give to a mechanic who helped me out (he’s on some low carb kick). God, I hate the label. Aroma is a bit metallic then nothing. Amber beer with white film, tiny carbonation. Thin mineral water mouthfeel. Slight (and I mean SLIGHT) bitter finish. Wow, this beer is ephemeral. Gives a new meaning to ’full-flavoured’.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured a clear piss-yellow with almost no head. Aroma just grain and very faint. Taste dryer than a nun’s c**t, and turned mouth to dust. Palate lively carbonated, thin, watery, moderate dry hops finish. Overhall, bleh! Give me carbs, just even a little more so that I have some flavour.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle) Clear pale gold, no head (ironic for a beer called Bighead) and flat looking. Aroma mixes wet cardboard with grainy malt. Light body and lightly fizzy. Taste is rather sour with some slight metallic bitterness. Not good.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very pale gold, no head but quite fizzy - looks more like soft drink. Has that big-brand pale lager nastiness to the aroma, wet dog and cardboard. Taste is watery, metallic, and vaguely beerish. Look, I appreciate that some people want a low calorie, low carb option, but this is no better than any of the bland CUB low carb beers. Just don’t.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with somewhat resilient white head and a little lace. Aromas of grain, bread, crackers, some light herbs and a hint of malt sweetness. Light body, medium carbonation. Herbal hop character, light corn vegetable. Finishes lightly sweet, refreshing, dry with a hint of corn.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pretty average. Soapy, and tasteless. Just enough of a beer flavour to let you know it is still a beer. Drinkable but nothing really going on.
