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

Had on tap at comedy sportz. Golden pour with frothy head. Good citrus smell and taste. For a lighter beer it is good stuff

cheap (4430) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2013
Aroma is a little alarming, that of hoppy body oder with lemon deodorant. Some sizzle, acceptable. Yes that first olfactory of yer mates mild BO comes thru on every swig, weird and even more than most ipa. Taste does have some lemon in there, a little like oily furniture polish.What else can be said? Same with finish.Perhaps was expecting something a little more refershing for a golden ale. Probably more like a medium mild apa.

Yellow golden color... Aroma is crisp, citrus fruits.... Flavor is light and crisp, refreshing citrus fruitiness... No real hop notes, but extremely nice for a hot Waikiki day... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

That1Guy (2025) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2013
12 oz bottle packaged 2.26.13. Pours a beautiful, bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is lightly fruity, subtle hops, and movie theater popcorn butter. Less diacetyl in the flavor, with more of the bready maltiness and fruity hops coming through. Light and crisp, but a little flawed.
