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 brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is surprisingly hoppy, some malts as well. Taste is a good balance of malts and hops, drinks more like a pale ale than a blonde, pretty tasty and well hopped for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and solid beer.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a light brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a lively herbal hop atop a clean grainy pale malt.

The taste consisted of a vibrant herbal, a piney hop and fruity esters.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a vigorous carbonation.

Overall a very tasty hop forward blonde ale.
