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

Pours a pale yellow with a nice white head. Aroma of lemon and a piney floral note. Taste is light, grainy with a mild bready note in the finish. A more complex version of a basic American light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is an awful beer. Near orange / wheat / oat taste that completely destroys this beer. I've had other Kona products, and this is the worst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hoppy fruity smell...decent taste...mild and fruity...but a timid beer that is lacking a strong flavor...decent..but just average middle of the road

Mora2000 (6135) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some resinous notes as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is also quite hoppy. I get some pine and resin notes as well as some pineapple and biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A clear golden beer with a small white head. Aroma is malty, fruity and slightly hoppy. Flavor is sweet, some light caramel notes. Slightly hoppy finish. A bit watery

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Juicy malts, relatively clean and full, with some crisp and fresh citric hoppy notes coming through in the finish. Very drinkable.

Westkyoto77 (605) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle. I liked this much better than their Lager. Looks pale and light, but had a nice fruity hop nose. Medium to lively carbonation. Juicy fruit and spices, passionfruit gum?- with a short finish. Not exactly what I’d call a premium ale, but a decent drop.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy gold with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and honey. Taste is light bitter. Grassy with a little grapefruit and citrus on the end. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. A little weak but enjoyable.

This is a pretty tasteless beer. It has a bit of sweetness and was very easy to drink but there was little other redeeming qualities.
