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

joeneugs (5452) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 10, 2014
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a yellow color with a nice white head. The aroma has some lemony, floral notes with some bread and light caramel. The flavor is pretty bland and watery. Not much malt or hop character. Non-offensive, slightly bready and spritzy in the mouth. Meh.

Had a bit more expectations about that one as it began quite hoppy and fruity with some big citrus in the back. The taste was more boring than expected with some straw, bit of leaves and earthy background. Starting off well, finishing low - there are better ones out there.

McTapps (6396) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer pours out in a deep golden colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and mild fruits. Taste of mild hops, malt, bread, herbs and pine. Hints of spices and mild fruits. Easy drinkable, yet nothing special.

EithCubes (5462) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Nose is richly citric and jammy, tons of great fruity hop character, orange peel probably in the fore with light tropical essences and more than a touch of spicy caramel. Rich clear golden with carbonation a tick above average, a dish-soapy white head. Taste faintly bitter (like, well, and English Bitter) with faint astringency and grain, oily and dry, some lemony citrus and good smooth wood character, light spice, touch papery and chalky. More pale malt than caramel (that notion is long departed). Medium-full body, filling and satisfying, clean and somewhat refreshing.
