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

WVHouseofBeer (964) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Nothing special, just a standard blonde. Relatively bland aromas and flavors consisting of light grass, tropical fruit and bread. Watery body with a smooth finish. It is an easy drinker and fairly forgettable.

TheJester (2303) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
At a AA ball game in Erie. Clear yellow-gold with a ring of white head. The aroma and flavour are very middle-of-the-road, with more malt than hops. Very safe beer.

lokis333 (220) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - DEC 21, 2015
Smooth honey gold color with minimal white foam. Aromas of exotic fruits like passionfruit, pinaple and mago. Palate wuit light and watery body with thin body and leaves minimal finish of fruits. Taste is sweetish and watery. tastes of the exotic fruits mentioned mainly of passionfruit but very weakly and taste does not last at all. Overall, nice smelling and looking beer but it is missing the body, too watery for me.
