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

Deep golden color, with hoppy aroma. Taste a bit like an IPA. The hops are there but not overpowering. Goes down real smooth, would make for a good summer brew. Picked up one as part of a create your own 6 pack. Would grab this again.

12oz bottle from Total Wine in Cary. Golden hue, sparkling clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. Fair lacing. Hoppy citrus and grass on the nose. Bitter crisp hop on the initial taste with a light hop and pine finish. Good beer to drink at the beach, on the water or after cutting the grass.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle courtesy of my niece’s husband Matthew. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin-moderate linen white white that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of pale malt with notes of grapefruit. The flavor is pale malt with a touch of white sugar sweetness followed by some mild grapefruit hops bitterness. Light-medium bodied. Refreshing. No problems.

KeefOz (1093) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2013
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished slowly and laced OK. Carbonation low with medium sized bubbles forming a few trails. Aroma subtly of fruity hops - nice. Taste of sweet caramel followed by a nice, not too much, fruity hops bitterness. Light body. Light clean crisp refreshing.
