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°

Pours golden and has a nice citrus aroma. The flavor is crisp and citrus. Light and refreshing, but enough body to let the aroma and flavors shine. Something I could drink all day and not get tired of. Orange was probably the most noticeable. Thanks to my Mother in law that flew this back from Hawaii with her for me.

12oz bottle - Yellow. White head. A bit bland, but not unexpected for a golden ale. Certainly nothing to go out of the way to get, but on a hot day, it sure beats the macro lagers. Not bad overall.

Holmen1 (2337) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 17, 2012
Bottle, great label! Served on a sunny but chilly day in Norway. Nice first impression, but too bland with little bitterness. Probably ok on a beach in Hawaii but no personality, light moithfeel and very short aftertaste.

~Refreshing, light, fruity, citrus lemony orange aroma with light malt and some grassy notes. ~Pours a clear light golden color with small lasting white head. ~Crisp citrus flavor with biscuity malt. Like a light american pale ale. ~Light body, high CO2, crisp clean citrusy finish. ~Very enjoyable light beer. I wouldn’t mind drinking these all day at the beach. Great citrus hop flavor and aroma.

I had this one a long time ago. If I have the chance to drink it again, I’ll update this rating

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
Pretty bland, but still okay session brew. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dies instantly. Grainy and slightly sweet nose with a hint of grass and hops. A light taste with grainy malts and a bit of citrus hops. Light body on this one. This is a grainy, bland and boring brew.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2011
[Tap] Pours a clear golden color with a quickly receding white head. Aroma is of cereal malts and light honey sweetness. Cereal malts, sweet grain and mild grassy hops. Hints of fruitiness comes out in the taste as it warms. The body is OK for what it is, but a little on the light side otherwise. Highly carbonated. Pretty standard.
