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

JFGrind (2000) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Light bodied citrus infused Golden ale with a hazy golden color, pillow white head and an overall easy drinker. My Big Wave was definitely brewed stateside and under the influence of A-B. Still enjoyable nonetheless.

God Ale som passade utmärkt till kvällens mat, Wallenbergare. Ni vet, panerade biffarna gjorda av kalvfärs, med mos och lingon.

HighH2O (65) - - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle in Stuttgart, DE. Pours a beautiful golden color with slight haze, perfect head. I like all of the brews Kona but this one is weak and watered down. Advertised as a summer beer so if you like summer beer to be weak (not light) then this is perfection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (415) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2016
Pours gold from the bottle with a white foamy head that soon fades. Aroma is tropical with notes of freshly cut passionfruit and grapefruit. Quite inviting. Taste and body make a distinctly watery impression at the outset, followed by a mild, dry, hops bitterness. The fruity notes evident in the aroma carry over to the taste as well, but on a much more subtle level. The finish is refreshing but subdued. Some beers are made for a time and place and this is one of them. Drunk outside on a hot, sweaty day it hits just the sweet spot of being satisfyingly refreshing without losing its character. In another setting, it’s light body and watery hints will be less forgiving.

MrGGen (331) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2016
Versa di un bel biondo con una bianca schiuma compatta di media durata. L’aroma è luppoloso, fruttato,dolce,delicato, anche troppo forse.In bocca è secca ma il gusto non è niente di speciale, anche se il luppolo è di qualità,passa quasi inosservato.Il finale è secco In sostanza l’aroma floreale lasciava pensare tutt’altra cosa, alla fine sembra quasi di bere una fioriera...da cimitero
