UPDATED: OCT 29, 2016 Zero carbs and 88 calories, so this could be the dieticians beer. Tastes a bit like beer and has some flavours if you think hard about drinking it. Better than many other lagers. Has more depth than your average XXXX. It is refreshing cold. With some real persistence it could work. It could be a genuine weight loss beer! A scientific phenomenon?

beer-yum (1423) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2016
Crisp lemon aroma in a yellow pour. Similarly crisp lager like body with a surprisingly tart finish. An acquired taste (I guess).

mcberko (15022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
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.

KeefOz (1618) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2016
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.

From a bottle. Pours clear with minimal head, not too bad, pretty smooth, Id drink it again.

TedE (1051) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Bought some of these to give to a mechanic who helped me out (hes 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.

StuffWine (150) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2014
Poured a clear piss-yellow with almost no head. Aroma just grain and very faint. Taste dryer than a nuns 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.

Pyobon (1334) - 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.

varanid99 (1060) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2013
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 dont.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2013
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.
