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

SilkTork (5507) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
350ml dark bottle, filtered. £2.19 from Beers & Bottles, Southampton. Dry, thin, tasteless malt with some pleasantly fragrant tropical fruit hops. Too thin and dry for my taste. More lager than ale.

On tap at the River road Tavern Deep golden color with a decent white head. Earthy citrus hop, with bread and light caramel. Decent brew.

I poured this ale into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a crystal clear golden body with a quickly diminishing head of white foam. The aroma is lightly hopped. Texture is light and crisp, with a dry edge, and easy on the hops aftertaste. A lawnmower beer, but not too bad. It has some character, though since my tastes lean toward the darker side, this isn’t the beer for me. Easy to drink and not too bad.

Clear gold with a white head. A little bit sweet, but not too much, with a floral, fruity taste. A very smooth beer to drink.

Nice golden refresher on the beach with an aroma you can smell as soon as the glass is in your hand. Nice crisp hop flavor and light-medium body.

Ok nothing special. Probably wouldn't buy this. Not a ton of flavor. The kona name is about all ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2014
355ml bottle from supermarket in Helsinki. Slightly hazy pale yellow body, small frothy mostly lasting white head, some lacing. Light malty aroma of grain and a bit of caramel with moderate tropical and citric hops. Taste is mildly sweet and acidic at first, turning into a moderately bitter finish with an astrigent feel. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Pleasant summery ale with a fair bit of hop aroma but not unbalancedly bitter. A bit thin maybe.

bjakk (673) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - DEC 22, 2014
Clear, yellow, with minimum foam that dosnt last. Hoppy fruit in the aroma. Mild dry taste of blanket, with mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Watery.

Bottle pour. Clear golden with a good frothy white head, but disappears quickly. Good citrus aroma with grapefruit and pineapple, and some floral hops. Medium body. Bright citrus fruit taste with floral hops.

thirstyrabbit (1679) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. Pale golden body with some cloudiness, minimal head disappears soon. Aroma has a pleasant sweet and fruity hoppiness. Pineapple. Taste has sweet pineapple and some melon. Light but refreshing. And sessionable. Pretty good for what it is - not a beer to analyse thoroughly but something refreshing to grab from the fridge and drink straight from the bottle when you get thirsty.
