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 Ė 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. 10.3į

Malts: Pale (Premium 2-Row), Caramel

scoth (506) - 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 wasnít one of their better beers, but it was just fine.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 19, 2009
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.

Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
"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 itís just there. Very weak flavoured but yummy, I swear Iím 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 doesnít taste bad but its nothing to get excited over it just a beer. Thank Timmer for bringing this back for me. "

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2009
On draft and in bottle while in Maui. Pours a clear medium yellow color with a fluffy white head. Light floral citrus notes with some grain and corn on the nose. Lightly sweet on the finish with some corn and faint hop bitterness.

VertBaconStrips (2081) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2009
Average all around? Thatís pretty lame, but totally accurate. Light bodied and golden in colour and totally drinkable. A tad bit of bitterness but quite sweet and goes down really easy. But it is what it is - a small brewery beer - donít expect anything more than that. Wish I was at the beach instead of my crummy basement.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Major disappointment from Kona here. Dull in every way. Bland and dull cereals are all that makes an appearance. Dull from first appearances with itís stale look and moth eaten head. Dull all the way to the useless finish.

Yelllow golden. Whitey head. Bottle on North Shore Oahu. Slightly sweet with a touch of yeast.Carbonated. Not Much to say. Pretty bland!
