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

jukkar (106) - FINLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Golden color, cloudy. Minimal head. Slightly bitter finish. More hoppiness would be nice, there is only very little hops in the taste. Very refreshing beer and would be nice after a hot day.

gripweed57 (1329) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pale gold color. Moderate fluffy white head. Grainy malt nose has a hint of fragrant hops. Grainy malt flavor upfront. Some bready notes, but light in body and flavor. A touch of citrus hops in finish. Overall, pretty bland.

Sammy (10891) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016
On tap at duke’s refresher. Deep yellow with some lace. Undistinguished aroma. Some hops but also off flavours. Worth avoiding. Tad astringent.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

dj (565) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle, 355ml. A slightly hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of fresh citrus hops with a slight coriander note. Flavour has soft citrus, coriander and a little hop spice. High carbonation. Quite drinkable but not very exciting.

rauchbier (3775) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle, from Waitrose. Pale gold, fluffy but shortlived white head, good condition. Pleasant but muted sweet lemon-citrus in the nose, with some background biscuity malt notes, soft and a little thin in the mouth with just a touch of lemon sherbert to brighten things up, some floral hoppiness gives it a late flourish but this gives the finish a steely dry bitterness that a lack of body only accentuates.

MiP (15187) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle at KØ16. Hazy yellow colour. Small white head. Fruity flavour, grassy hoppiness. Quite mild flavour, but has a good hop burn in the finish.
