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.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler glass.

A - Clear light yellow, with a one-finger white head which didn't last long. Only the faintest hints of lacing.

S - Mild aroma of dextrin, grass, and Pledge furniture polish. Doesn't smell appealing at all.

T - Things don't get much better here. Some corn sweetness and vague frutiness with a hint of floral hop. Slight salty mineral taste in the finish. Flavors are ridculously mild. Did someone put Michelob Ultra in my bottle?

M - Watery. Beyond watery. Water isnt this watery. Prickly carbonation.

O - Normally I like Kona and I understand this is meant to be a blonde ale, but it's still a big time fail. Just watery, bland, and generally terrible.
