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

This is just about the most tasteless golden ale I’ve ever had. I don’t think I could tell the difference between this and a macro lager, we’re it not for the very slightly deeper colour.

Oh yeah - a Hawaii Ale that is crafty smelling and has little alcohol content with it, that is great. The after taste is the only thing where I would like a bit more. A god easy going beer.

I don’t know what to say about this beer other than that it’s about as average as a beer could be. Not bad by any means, but it isn’t special in any way and it doesn’t have any qualities that jump out at you.

jesperhammer (3786) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2015
09-DEC-2015, bottle @home, present from Jeanett & Johan, thx.:-) Golden, almost clear with a high, lively, white head that dies quickly. Citrus, malty sweet, honey. Medium body and carbonation. Clearly hoppy with mostly citrus, quite hoppy for the style, actually but not a lot of bitterness here. OK little one.

ElDesmadre (2777) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle. Watery, almost no bitterness and almost no taste, save for some faint citrus notes. If I want to drink water, I drink real water and not one that is pretending to be beer.

Cimbasso (558) - - DEC 7, 2015
Sampled from a bottle at Dan Ryan's Sports Bar at Pacific Place in Central, Hong Kong. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma of cereals, and a taste which has hints of citrus, pineapple and pine. The taste, carbonation and mouthfeel are all rather light, but the overall effect is not bad.

Towey1989 (1176) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2015
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of cereal, some caramel, a little butter, slight lemon and subtle pineapple. Taste is similar of cereal, some caramel, a little butter, slight lemon and grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweetish, cereal finish with a grassy hop bitterness. This is quite disappointing, smells and tastes like a mediocre amber ale. Was expecting better hoppiness.

niquillis (2312) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Keg at Hop Inn, Newcastle under Lyme. Pours golden with white froth. Fizzy, not much going on, bland golden ale. Average at best.

12oz bottle on 09-Oct-2015 at Brewerkz, Stadium, Singapore. Pale in colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of cereal, grass and pine. Sweet aroma and taste. Refreshing, but light flavour and hop profile.
