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.

Light floral ale. Easy to drink on a very hot and humid Miami afternoon.

Big Wave has a subtle fruity taste, but is a bit on the watery side.

Refreshing but certainly not overwhelming. A good summer brew.
