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

33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Brewed 2014-03-26. Best before 2015-05-01. It poured a pale golden colour with a minimal head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy. Lots of tropical fruits and some malty notes. Flavour is smooth and mild. Some hops and tropical fruits. Hints of grass. A bit watery. Short aftertaste. Overall a nice beer.

Tap. Press golden with off white head. Taste and aroma are your basic, mediocre golden ale. Little hops, little malts. Eh.

beerbomb (221) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 really like an everymans session ipa - light, unoffensive, nicely flavorful, not bitter, very refreshing - aroma has some dry citrus, pine, and melon hops - flavor a bit grainy and bran-like but has crisp malt, muted melon, citrus, dry pine hop flavors - very mild overall with some solid hop flavors and low bitterness, just a bit of cloying graininess and sweetness take it down a notch

Lett drikkelig, deilig lukt, fin farge, kul etikett. En øl jeg gjerne drikker igjen.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is grassy hops and malt but very mild. Flavor is light malt, grassy hops, and a sweet finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Not bad.

Kauge (1266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2014
355 ml bottle from Liviko Alcostore in Tallinn harbour (€ 2,19), Sept 2014. So the brewers say they wanted to "make a beer that went down easy after a day out on the water" - how about after a day out in freezing rain and wind? I’ll give it a try anyway. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a small white head that nonetheless keeps and laces. Nose is quite a restrained, sweet tropical fruitiness. Gets more succulent as it warms, but also maltier. Taste is less juicy, quite malty. Palate a bit watery, it’s got a light to medium body and a rather crisp carbonation. An average beverage with a more inviting aroma than taste. A nice thirst quencher, it indeed goes down really easy.

Golden color. Nose has fruits and hops but promises more than taste can deliver. Taste ends up being bland and watery. Good for chugging down on a hot Hawaii day; not much else.

monkeychugg55 (1007) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Clear gold with small, short lived head. The aroma has some sweet malt and a bit of citrusy hops. The flavor is pretty much the same. Doesn’t finish very crisp, has a lot of lingering sweetness, does have a somewhat bland flavor.

suurjuust (2589) - ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2014
Golden beer, small white head. Nose is caramel sweetness, malt, tropical fruit, hops, perfume. Flavor is malts, fruity perfume, dry finish with delicate hoppy bitterness. Light and easily drinkable. Not too shabby.
