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

ordybill (1313) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Poured from the tap into a large plunder glass. The appearance is a clear, pale golden color with a large white head. The aroma is malt and fruit. The taste is very nice blend of fruit, malt and hops. A great summer time beer.

ciocanelu (1329) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 19, 2016
Clear golden color, white head. Aroma is really clean and malty. Taste follows, balanced, malty at first with some light, grassy hoppiness. Light body with medium to high carbonation. Not bad but its quite generic and boring.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - JUN 18, 2016
Bionda e schiumosa. Profumata e floreale al naso, delicate note di luppolo; il primo sorso piacevole, ma dopo un po si rivela carente di spessore e banalotta. A tratti ricorda una lager, niente di che.

jukkar (117) - FINLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Golden color, cloudy. Minimal head. Slightly bitter finish. More hoppiness would be nice, there is only very little hops in the taste. Very refreshing beer and would be nice after a hot day.

gripweed57 (1366) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pale gold color. Moderate fluffy white head. Grainy malt nose has a hint of fragrant hops. Grainy malt flavor upfront. Some bready notes, but light in body and flavor. A touch of citrus hops in finish. Overall, pretty bland.

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016
On tap at dukes refresher. Deep yellow with some lace. Undistinguished aroma. Some hops but also off flavours. Worth avoiding. Tad astringent.
