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°

Transfer from BA review on 10-14-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a lighter golden color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent retention but eventually fades to give a nice amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is light overall with some bready and malty notes as well as a lighter citrus hop aroma. Mixed with these aromas is a lighter floral hop aroma as well. Taste – The taste begins with a lighter biscuit and wheat flavor. Some citrus hop then comes to the tongue. It is slightly sweeter and mainly of an orange flavor with some hints of lemon. These flavors take the taste to the end where they combined with some light floral and herbal hop flavors. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer s very light with a carbonation level that is on the average to above average side. Both are quite good for making a very crisp and drinkable beer. Overall – Rather refreshing and easy drinking. While it is not huge on the flavor profile, it does make for a decent session style brew.

0,33 pullo@ St. Urho. Vaalean kullankeltainen, kirkas. Tuoksu todella hedelmäinen, makeahko. Mieto ja kevyt maku, hiukan vetinen. Hellesäälle Super valinta.

Bottle from Ica Tangen. Slightly hazy golden. A couple of centimeters of white, bubbly head. Pineapple and citrus nose. Quite bitter. Fizzy carbonation. Thin body. Floral, some grapefruit, citrus, some malt and grass flavour. Good, but a bit too thin.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottled, 330ml at Thirsty Meeples, Oxford. Hazy yellow gold with white head. There is a tropical fruit character on the nose which follows through into the beer, quite sweetish, just a little syrupy, fruit punch sweets in the hop. Reasonable.

brun farge med hvitt skum. Lukter mildt humle og sitrus. Medium karbonert og en lett og mild øl som passer fint en varm sommerdag. Noe bitter avslutning.
