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.

Pale yellow color. Good perfume of flowery hops. Good carbonation and retention. Taste is malty and fuity. Light body. Good carbonation.
Great drinkability.

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