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

Drank from a bottle at a bar. The taste is quite subtle, could be a bit stronger. Not bad though.

12 oz. Clear golden with a lasting film of foam. Big nose of catspray and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, toast and a bit of caramel. Light-medium body is dry and astringent, with medium-high carbonation. Nice for the boring style, but seems almost in APA territory which is fine with me.

Suttree (5149) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Clear bubbly gold, nice white head, plus a bonus appearance point for the cool bottle. Smells crisp and toasty, with some grassy notes. Taste is biscuit and grassy hops, plus a bit of stale notes creeping in.

From the bottle, pool side in Kona. Easy drinking golden ale. Some light bitter citrus notes with a balance of sweetness. Mildly refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
