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

Bottle courtesy of Tanner. Thanks! Pours clear golden color, white head that fades to nothing. Aroma is mildly hoppy, hints of citrus. Grassy, a bit of grain and sweet malt. Taste is hop forward, much more so than I was expecting. Slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Much hoppier than expected from this style. Light body, highly carbonated. Would drink this again.

Beer is golden with a small head. Aroma is grapefruity and piny with loads of resinous hoppiness. Mouthfeel is light with light flavors of malt and hops. Quite dry and well balanced finish. Nice! :)

reebtogi (4583) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
355ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a vigorously poured finger of white head that settles to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and citrus. Taste is a spicy and citrus hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with nice carbonation to tickle the tongue. Overall, a nice refreshing easy to drink ale.

Jamedra (630) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 6, 2015
Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je velmi příjemné, melounové s výraznou chmelovostí Pěna je jasné bílá, jemná, vysoká a poměrně držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je zemitá, spíše vodová a prázdnější, finiš je slabě suše hořký, asi jako slabší černý čaj. V ústech pivo působí lehce, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Toto pivo je přesně to jak ho popisuje komerční popis, žádně zveličování ani nadsázky. Prostě především na žízeň dobrá, světlá ale.

Leighton (13373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle at home in London - courtesy of the fine folks at BeerMerchants. Pours totally clear gold with a frothy white head that quickly settles down into a cream. Fairly subdued on the nose, just some notes of biscuits, hay, light cereal, lemon rind. Light sweet flavor with simple pale malt structure, some more biscuits, dry white bread, mild citrusy hops, slight grain, lemon pith, straw. Light bodied with average carbonation. Basic on the finish, more crispy cereal, pale grain, dried citrus, rind, hay. Not much to this beer, but I could see myself sipping it on the big island.

Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is toast, light caramel, buttered corn and nice fruity hops. Flavor is toast, mineral, light fruity hops and light floury grain. Light body, slightly watery, chalky feel, medium, sharp carbonation. Decent.
