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

northropfrye (2914) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Murky orange, sunset body, white head, not much retention or lacing. Pleasant but faint citrus, tropical fruit aroma. Taste is faintly sweet, maybe some tropical fruit again and yeast, but rather watery. Palate is a little soft. Overall, okay.

ljthiessen (907) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle. Slightly cloudy pale golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is light citrus and some sweet candy. Flavour is very mild citrus and a touch of caramel. Certainly not bad - just very light and kind of thin.

Easy drinking golden ale, with a good balance of pale malts and fruity esthers. Easy to drink in a hot summers day and a good thirst quencher.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a medium foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of clean cereal notes with light dry notes. Taste is also a mix of clean cereal notes with some light dry hoppy notes with subtle residual sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Standard and somewhat middle of the road offering that is refreshing under the Hawaiian sun.
