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 Ė 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. 10.3į

Surprisingly refreshing. This beer has a very clear, bright-gold appearance. The taste has a citrusy flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a crystal clear vibrant gold color with a one inch white head. Head disappears rather quickly leaving a thin lace. Smells of faint floral and grapefruit notes. Taste is very delicate with a very subtle sweetness. Mild fruit/citrus flavor. I didnít pick up much hop flavor but the aroma is there. Easy drinking, reps the style well. Smooth light body.

sawbuck (286) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Aroma of sweet pine and cloves. Pale golden in color...kind of flat head. Pine hops is overpowered by fruity sweet malt, almost grape fruit like flavor...then bitterness finishes at the end. Light body and thin texture...average but interesting.

KyotoLefty (6139) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle. Hoppy, citrus nose, lemon, sweet orange. More like a PA than a golden, nice. Clean, unobtrusive malts. Clear gold with a fine head. Hoppy citrus flavor with some bready pils-like malts. A touch of honey. Nice balance, nice flavors. Not all that surprising, but tasty and drinkable.

From a bottle into a frosted glass, pours light golden with a fizzy head that disappears quickly. Aroma starts as hops but gives way to a backdrop of yeast. Flavor is somewhat hoppy, light, refreshing, a bit of yeast, maybe some citrus. Not bad.

I tasted this amazing beer at a food tasting event in Newport CA and I was hooked to the flavor, the taste, the aroma and the tropical finish. I was impressed and no wonder why the stores keep refilling their shelves.

12oz bottle poured into glass. I wasnít expecting much from this one but I decided to reach for it since Iíve yet to tick it. Slight honey in the aroma and flavor but itís very bland and blah. Avoid if you can.
