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

Pint in Kenmore, Wa. Quite decent all told .. smooth clear gold, white foam. Medium fresh caramel and light hop. A bit sharp and tropical hop. Very drinkable and tasty for a light bar ale. Good while bowling too!

Bierkrug (2132) - - FEB 6, 2014
On tap in Florida. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head. The aroma is citrusy, hops, grainy, fruit, and ok. The taste is weak, grain, slight hops, and malt. Palate is spicy but smooth.

blklab2007 (2079) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle dated November 4 13 bottling date. pour is a light golden color wit a ring of white head on the glass. Aroma has a nice little hop pop, citrus touches, mild sweetness, and malt. Mouth feel is on the lighter side and the carbonation is a bit low. Flavor again has a nice hop profile, light citrus, and a solid finish.

pours clear gold with a smallish white head. aroma is floral with a hint of citrus. Tastes clean and refreshing with a little hoppiness on the finish, but not bitter. I would definitely drink this again.

kustie (353) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Mieto tuoksu. Raikas, mutta hieman yksioikoinen maku. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Ei erityistä jälkimakua.

Lys farge med greit skum. Lovende aroma av sitrus og tropisk frukt. Følger dessverre ikke helt opp i smaken men en flott sommerøl
