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

This is a pretty tasteless beer. It has a bit of sweetness and was very easy to drink but there was little other redeeming qualities.

Golden clear pour. Soapy head, mild retention, minimal lacing. Aroma is wonderful; fruity hops with some natural earth. Taste is initially bland. Some hops and honey shine through the somewhat watery flavor. Aroma is the best thing about it. Mouthfeel is medium-thin and sticky. Decent beer. Its actually very unique how the hops are so strong on the nose but hardly noticeable in the flavor.

Good carbonation, moderate hops and modest malts make this an enjoyable, well-balanced beer. As with all Kona beers, the artwork on the six-pack carton and label shines.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Rated on 6-20-2013. This bottled beer pours a medium sized frothy white head, no lacing, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. The Aroma is malty, some hints of fruit, pine, and spruce. The Taste is bitter, malty, lightly fruity, and some pine and spruce hops. The Palate is tingly and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, the flavors of this beer did not entice me to seek out this beer again.

nittanytide (226) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Poured bright gold with a thin, bubbly head. Slight fruity aroma, but not much there. Taste is just a little bit of bread and possibly pineapple, but that may be wishful thinking. Very watery mouthfeel and not a lot of taste.

pours a semi-hazy yellow with a medium size white head, and some lacing. smell is of grain, a touch of citrus, and corn. taste is crisp, grain, a little citrus, and a few hops. ends dry and somewhat tangy, below average as blonds go.

Pours a clear golden with minimal head and modest lacing . Aroma of toasted malt subtle tropical fruit light bodied with crisp mouthfeel. Mildly sweet, no bitterness. No real hop presence. I think I know what they are going for in this and it’s good. for what they want. Like!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head that fades. Taste is of grass, fruit, citrus, hops, pine, honey and malt. Similar, grassy aroma. Has a lighter body with a clean finish. Refreshing and easy to drink.
