Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Sixpoint on 03-19-2005

Big Wave is light golden ale with a subtle fruitiness and delicate hop aroma. A smooth, easy drinking refreshing ale. The lightly roasted honey malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and also gives a slight sweetness that is balanced out by our special blend of hops.

Delicious, easy drinking golden ale with a slightly fruity aroma. Very easy drinking on a warm day.

The "notes" above describe this beer well.
I tried it yesterday among several other beers, and this one was my favorite.
It's very "refreshing," not heavy at all, yet has a great smell and flavor. My girlfriend was the one who ordered this one and I kept reaching for her glass, smelling it and taking a sip.
A very "fun" beer, not "in your face" at all, just fruity, bubbly and fresh.
