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

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!

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.

Muggus69 (1108) - 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.

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.

mkel07 (2520) - 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.

madquacker (1019) - 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.

bluevegie (3042) - 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.

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

Pyobon (860) - 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.
