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.

Reviewed from notes.

Poured into a pint glass.

This beer is hazy gold with a white head.

It's aroma is faintly grainy. Not much to smell.

It's taste is also faint. It's grainy with a light amount hops.

It's a light bodied beer.

This is easy to drink a ton of. It's totally unchallenging and mediocre and highly forgettable.

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