2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Love the label.
Admittedly this wasn’t as bad as I had expected but then I did epxect very little. Lively pour produces a bright, thin and translucent pale gold beer with a shortlived, fluffy and loose white head. Pale grains, dried, mown grass, eggy fart and salty crackers sum up the aroma. Soapy, watery thin and well charged in the mouth. Overall it’s very dry with a shallow vegetal sweetness upfront. Light malt, cardboard, grassy, spicy and dry hop note late and into the crisp, short swallow. Nothing but blandness here but a reasonable beer considering the taste has been lagere out of it!

330ml bottle- golden honey in colour. a very average beer, but good for a no/low carb beer.

No carbs and this is the price you pay, when you have a carb-less beer.
not a fan, but not a clear reflection on the great beers made by the burleigh brewery

actually really tasty low carb beer. More flavour than you would think. Nice golden wheat colour with a strong finish.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours gold with a very small white head.
Nose is massively skunky. Underneath is... nothing.
Flavours show sweet vegetal notes at first before transitioning to cardboard characters. No bitterness.
Carbonation is a bit over the top, body is watery.
I’m somewhat confused as to why Burleigh brewed this?

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
No flavour, no aromas, no taste, no head. This beer is just pointless ! Even the label is ugly, like a warning...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light, well balanced lager. Not the greatest, but this beer really needs to be measured against other Low/No Carb offerings and in this sense the Bighead is a good beer in a segment that will not appeal to many.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear pale golden body with short head. Touch of malt and hops on the aroma and the taste with not much else, wasn’t really disappointed as I wasn’t expecting too much.
