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

Somebody left this at my house after a party. Very smooth, a lot less bitter than I expected. Malty, not too sweet, a little bit of almond flavor. Well balanced. Mine was a little flat but I had left the bottle outside a bit so maybe that contributed to that.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft at The Mansion. Golden body with a white head. Flavor a good balance of semi sweet maltiness with some happiness rounding it out. Not bad for a hot summer afternoon but nothing special.

gyllenbock (4622) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
On tap at Kona, Koko Marina, August 2013. Clear golden with a small white head. Nothing special with this one, soft and easy to drink. Some citrus, light notes of hay and malt.

jsmerig (1246) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with a nice white head. Aroma of lemon and a piney floral note. Taste is light, grainy with a mild bready note in the finish. A more complex version of a basic American light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is an awful beer. Near orange / wheat / oat taste that completely destroys this beer. I've had other Kona products, and this is the worst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hoppy fruity smell...decent taste...mild and fruity...but a timid beer that is lacking a strong flavor...decent..but just average middle of the road
