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

Happy Thanksgiving from the Big Island.....Bottle from the ABC Store. Pours a dark yellow, looks like apple cider. Slightly musty aroma and grainy. Taste is light- tropical fruits, berries, malts, with minimal hops. The fruit flavor is present in every sip- maybe these tropical breezes are affecting my taste buds. Overall it’s good, a couple more hops for balance against the sweetness would be nice. Aloha.

Bottle @ Jens C.G. Pours clear golden with a small bubbly off white head. Nose is sweet malty. Toffee and dust. Medium bodied. Lack of hops. Boring and average.

My 1st night at Turtle bay I got a six of this in the Resort store for $15. Glad I traded a few out for a Pale and acouple Lagers. Average, I might like Molsen better.

Honolulu, Hi. - Airport brewpub - on draft. Neutral aroma, slightly murky, dark golden pour. Flavor has some sweet honey accents, some buttery notes and just a hint of citrus. Clean, even mouthfeel - refreshing. Good companion to the beef au jus sandwich I had.

scoth (465) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Pours clear golden-amber, with a thin white head, very fine lasting lacing. Banana, pineapple, toffee, bread, earthy, and citrus aromas. Medium-light body, smooth and mildly dry. Mild mannered toffee and biscuit flavors up front, with some citrus and earthy bohemian hops, mild bitter aftertaste. Overall, well-balanced and drinkable.

Had this at the Kona brewpub following a tour of the place while vacationing in Hawaii. This wasn’t one of their better beers, but it was just fine.

On tap at the Yard House, Waikiki. Lightly hazed gold with a ringed white head. Meh. Bland, tasteless and watery. Clearly brewed for the BMC crowd.

"Hazy golden yellow zero crown on top not even bubble island was produced during the pour this blatacular looking. Aroma is mild and reminds me of ginger ale and maybe even a hint of chocolate, not offensive but not great it’s just there. Very weak flavoured but yummy, I swear I’m tasting chocolate but that seems wrong. Very malty and hint of hops with perfume in the finish, mouth full is smooth and heavily carbonated. This is just beer to drink it doesn’t taste bad but its nothing to get excited over it just a beer. Thank Timmer for bringing this back for me. "
