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°

Nische (703) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2013
Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma contains light grains, some light hop character and some notes of honey. Some sweetness to the taste. Somewhat unbalanced and really nothing special.

Sample at a beer store. Heavy on the fruit, but generally a bit to watery on the palate.

Big wave is fitting with the water terminology. Very light w/ a strange finish that makes the beer off balanced. It has decent flavor up front but the finish is awkward & not good!

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2013
12 fl. oz bottle (4.4% abv version) purchased @Ølhandleriet, Mathallen, Oslo. A fluffy shiny white head, atop a crystal clear pale yellow colored body. Pretty nice hop aroma; Sweet tangerines, flowers and mild grapefruit. Notes of honey and perfume. Taste is sweetish, light honeyed malts. Mild fruity bitterness. Soft and very light in the mouth. Finishes on the sweet side with subtle fruity bitterness. Easy drinking.

radagast83 (4635) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is crisp, light grains, some light hop character. Flavor was cereal grains, some sweetness, and a touch of bitter hops. Quite refreshing, though otherwise unremarkable - would probably be great on a really hot day.

EtTuCthulhu (1047) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2013
The color of this beer is a golden yellow with a minimal white head, and the aroma fuses the smells of citrus hops, honey, and dough yeast. The taste is slightly sweet, slight bitter, and mildly sour; furthermore, the palate, which combines an abrupt finish, average carbonation, slick texture, and ight-medium body, makes for sippable beer.

12oz Bottle. I got a six pack of this while visiting Plano Texas. I hadn’t had any beer from our beautiful island state but i will probably be giving the other beers this brewery has to offer. the Big Wave is fruity in aroma and has a pleasant aftertaste. I say give it a shot if you like this style of brew. This is a very refreshing little beverage.
