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

Quenches your thirst but doesn’t do much else for me. Nice golden color and simple on palate - too simple? - but not much on the nose or with the flavor. Good beer for sitting by the pool.

Pleasant graininess but couldve used a more interesting yeast. Perfectly quaffable though.

12 oz from the GF’s fam. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is yeasty, pretty sweet, light citrus and other fruit. Light red apple flavor, mild alc, yeasty, a little off though. Medium bodied and good carb though chalky. Okay.

Had this on draft in Hawaii. There was every reason to enjoy it with the location and view, but the aroma was a bit metallic and skunky and so was the taste. Much thinner than anticipated. I enjoyed this brewery’s Longboard Lager more.

A decent golden ale. Very light, slightly hoppy, with a tad bit of citrus.

poured a nice golden color with a light malt scent. Very smooth and well balanced on the palate. If I ever go to Hawaii I’ll definitely be having some of this.

12 oz bottle enjoyed in beautiful Hawaii. Part of a mixed six pack. Poured a pale yellow with lots of bubbles. Tastes of mild hops. Some citrus but not much.

This beer is like a light pale ale. Easy to drink. Light bitterness and hoppy flavors underneath. Mild but refreshing.

12 oz bottle in Hawaii. Thin aromas were mostly bready with some sweetness. Flavors were similar with an awkard bitterness that wasn’t from any quantity of hops. Not great.
