Davros (1947) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2011
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?

cagou007 (327) - FRANCE - NOV 12, 2010
No flavour, no aromas, no taste, no head. This beer is just pointless ! Even the label is ugly, like a warning...

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2010
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.

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2010
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.

jonno (2336) - JAPAN - JAN 10, 2010
What’s the point. Bland, lifeless and ridiclous. Either drink less good beer or just don’t bother if you’re worried about calories. Sh$te.

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2009
Bottle. Medium-Low carbonation. No head, small bubbles. Clear yellow colour. Fruity aroma. Extra bitter at the back of the throat. A bit watery, disappointing... Won’t buy again.

Muggus69 (1199) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2009
330ml bottle. Golden body, short lived white foam. Mild malty aroma, hint of floral hop. Reasonably full body, moderate carbonation, somewhat flabby texture. Sweet corny malts, hint of apple. I’m thinking diacetyl by the bucket load, as the body ends with a chalky dryness and moderate bitter note. Seems a bit poorly made, almost had promise.

madquacker (1042) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2009
Watery and bland with very little carbonation. Do not know what no carbs is about but insepid and dull in the taste.
