Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Crisp, clean, yellow brew with white thick foamy head. Good lacing.

Papery, wet cardboard, bland.

Thin, wet, awkward dryness, missing much flavor from hops. Papery. Darn near water. Medium carbonation, substantial carbonation helps out the lack of flavors. Too wet and watery, not well balanced or complemented.

Initial drainpour, but then I wanted a crisp clean-ish brew. Cant recommend, but fits the summer profile. Kona can do better, a total miss.
