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

Foffern (1623) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle at Piccadilly, Bodø. The colour is golden straw with an off-white, whipped eggwhite-like, medium head. Fruity aroma with hay, straw, citrus, grass, grassy hops and apricot. The flavour follows up and is both sweet and dry. Has a slick and soft mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A well-balanced and nice golden ale.

IndianaRed (3675) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle pours a crystal clear golden witha small but fine white head that dissipates rather quickly. Obvious pale lager pilsener aroma, but a more pleasant light pale malt flavor. Still some cereal and bohemian hop flavors. Light bodied and spritzy. Not a fan.

Solid beer from Kona. When it comes to tropical beers, I would put Kona as a cut above the rest. Good ale, clean taste. Certainly not Corona!

Thin white head, nice golden color, almost no lacing. Fragrant fruity aroma with hints of tropical fruit with some grassy hints and cereal in a back. Light bitterness of hops, somewhat sweet. Quite well balanced.

Plenty of honey from the malt and a light citrus, pine taste from the hops. Golden ale is not normally my thing but this was surprisingly good. Nice and light. Good for a summer session.
