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

Ruikt lekker hoppig. Uiterlijk moeilijk in stenen camper mok. Iets teveel carbo, verder iets hoppiger dan pils, niet heel speciaal.

rondphoto (2686) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 5, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light amber color, full white head, sheets of lace. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is crisp malt and carbonation that adds citrus on the swallow, the citrus turning hoppy as it moves through a lingering finish, with malt returning at the end. Actually a solid light brew, very drinkable, probably terrific on a hot summer day. Better than many of the ratings imply.

basically a clone of any other American golden/blonde ale that’s between 4-5% ABV..they’re all the same.

Pours gold with alot of carbonation, white head. Aroma is tons of tropical fruit, very nice hop aroma. Big on tropical fruit and citrus from the hops. This is more like a mild IPA than a Golden ale to me. Very good, and very underrated. Love it.

Idiosynkrasie (4640) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Biscuity malty aroma, some caramel, citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of lemon and orange. Taste is initially slightly citrusy hoppy, a touch of mango and grapefruit, later dry, minimally husky, almost papery in the finish. Can’t ride the Big Wave.
