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

Solid beer from Kona. When it comes to tropical beers, I would put Kona as a cut above the rest. Good ale, clean taste. Certainly not Corona!

Plenty of honey from the malt and a light citrus, pine taste from the hops. Golden ale is not normally my thing but this was surprisingly good. Nice and light. Good for a summer session.

Bottle. Smells fruity and sweet. Pours translucent gold with no head. Taste follows the smell with a mild citrus aftertaste. Decent summer brew.
