mkel07 (3302) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2009
330ml bottle. Pale honey colour with a moderate fluffy white head. Average carbonation and no standout aromas, hard to detect anything at all.. Surprisingly it has some flavour with amild bitterness that is easy on the tatse buds.

bluevegie (3052) - 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.

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!

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.

Davros (1897) - 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?

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2009
Draught. Pours clear golden with small white head that completely disappeared. Aroma and flavour of grain and grassy hops. Thin and watery with little hop bitterness. I’m not keen on seeing these low carb beers on the market...misleading the masses.

Muggus69 (1165) - 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.

Watery and bland with very little carbonation. Do not know what no carbs is about but insepid and dull in the taste.

Pyobon (909) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2013
(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.
