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

Aroma is very nice juicy citrus, orange, tangerine, peach. The color of a dark piss with minaml head. Tasty light citrus flavor with some malt grassy ness. This exceptionally refreshing, light yet flavorful... Would have never guessed.

I like this beer based on taste and palate. It tastes light with a bit of fruit. I toally dig it. The palate is drinker friendly too.

This is one of those blond ales that’s more like an APA. I prefer this to the very bland concoctions some breweries offer up. It pours a perfectly clear golden with just a scant bit of fine bubbled white head. Nose is light, sweet peach and sticky pine. The peach and apricot notes come out more in the flavor profile and the pine becomes more subdued. This is a medium bodied brew w/ prickly carbonation. I think a lighter body would have suited it better but it works OK as is. This is a nice drinkable ale w/ plenty of flavor. Don’t let its supposed style turn you off.

First time...cold bottle to glass...better aroma than macro but too light in the sinus. Flavor profile to match. Hint of hops at tip of tongue but club soda at the back. Not going to make me a repeat offender.

Standard is all you can say about this. It is light and pleasant but not much else.

vikingguy (793) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Golden with white head; some sediment. Surprising fruity aroma. Taste - notes of tropical fruit, wheat, yeast and light toasted malt. Much better than I was expecting. Drinkable and refreshing.

12oz single bottle from Spirits Cross Roads. Poured a super clear gold body with an average to slightly bigger fizzy bright white head. Aroma of grains, some honey bran flakes, corn husk and veggies. The body is thinner to almost medium with stronger carbonation and a super quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a quick burst of malty grains, some dust and finishes with a touch bitter old lemon rind. Blah this is nothing special.

Pour is a clear blonde with a fizzy white head. Aroma is somewhat floral and fruity. Flavor is grainy malt with some sweetness but then a nice hoppyness shows up in the end. It’s a golden ale but with a lot more flavor then most.
