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.

The first of the several beers I tried while in Maui. Pours a hazy golden color with very little head. Sweet fruity tasting with a touch of bitter hops. Not overly flavorful but there's enough there to be a refreshing brew. I did however feel it was a little too sweet and could have used more hop flavor. Still pretty good in that Hawaiian sun, but what isn't?

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.
