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

Fantomasus (284) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a light gold with a gray white head that disappears. Aroma was interesting at first (unique) but wound up being bad: wet hay, herbal hops, barnyard (bad), rotten eggs, and urine. Taste is almost balanced but there is a foot odor funk. Im not typing any more. This may be the worst beer I have ever had.

wilnatp (639) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Pour is golden as expected with white head. Aroma of citrus (grapefruit) and tropical fruits with grain undertones. Taste is grainier than the fruity aroma but has a hint of bitterness. Great session beer. Body is very light/drinkable but full flavored.

ESBob (379) - Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Poured a mostly clear golden yellow with decent white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is a slightly floral hop combo. Taste is a light bodied honey, bread and light caramel character. Thinner mouthfeel. An easy drinker, sample in the winter, but this beer would be great during hot summer days and a good one to introduce to craft beer newbies.

Evolutionary (392) - Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2014
22 oz bottle from Maui. Nose is sweet with hop and smooth feel. Light carbonation. Hop bite is there but weak light drink overall. Ok for hot days but average really. ---Rated via my mouth

Bottle. A bit too hoppy for me. I was overwhelmed by the hops and Im an IPA fan. In the mixer.
