COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brewers wanted to make a beer that went down easy after a day out on the water. Big Wave Golden Ale is just the ticket. Big Wave is a lighter bodied golden ale with a tropical hop aroma and flavor – a smooth, easy drinking refreshing ale. The use of caramel malt contributes to the golden hue of this beer and our special blend of hops provides bright quenching finish. 10.3°

Malts: Pale (Premium 2-Row), Caramel
Hops: Galaxy, Citra

lusikka (6208) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2013
355 ml bottle, 4.4% ABV.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, grapefruit and some grass. Flavour of pale malts, mild bitterness, citrus and weak resiny notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and hard carbonation. Nothing fancy nor exciting.

399 yen from Seijo Ishii. 4.4% it pours a clear deep gold with a fruity citrus west coast hop aroma. Flavor wise I’d say it is more of a pale ale with the main flavor being bitterness, citrus & pine hop flavors. A nice beer but it doesn’t have the fruitiness I associate with golden ales. Then again that could be down to the pint glass I drank it from...

harrisoni (13632) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle at The Parcel Yard Kings Cross. Clear gold thick white head. Slightly oxidised hop aroma. But then it explodes in the mouth with almost space dust intensity. Possibly the strangest golden ale I have ever had. Beer of the day no doubt. It’s completely woken up my jaded senses and made me think. Sherberty space dust finish is exquisite. Not many beers put a big stupid grin on my face but this did. Yep even after several gulps I love the finish. Space dust man its space dust.

lb4lb (2532) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2013
drank out of the bottle. Cold and crisp. definitely a nice hop presence to this and much more than i expected. Solid crisp bitterness and light malt flavor. A bit metallic on the hop flavor as its quite sharp. Still very, very drinkable and refreshing.

Bottle. The look is clear, white head, and bright golden in color. The smell is citrusy, hops, grainy, fruit, and ok. The taste is weak, grain, slight hops, and ok.
