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.

Started off with the beer in the bottle. No fancy glass. The bottle is aesthetically pleasing. Initial taste is light and flavorful. Smooth, but nice amount of carbonation. Alcohol content is on the lower side - allows you to enjoy the taste a bit more. Hint of sweet, and hint of hops. A good summer time beer.
