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

Crisp lemon aroma in a yellow pour. Similarly crisp lager like body with a surprisingly tart finish. An acquired taste (I guess).

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

No carb beer from the Gold Coast. Not much to smell or look at, but clean lager taste. A little bit of malty sweetness too. Not too bad.

mcberko (15404) - 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.

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?

Love the label.
Admittedly this wasnt 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 its 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!

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.

Muggus69 (2229) - 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. Im 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.
