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

"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 it’s just there. Very weak flavoured but yummy, I swear I’m 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 doesn’t taste bad but its nothing to get excited over it just a beer. Thank Timmer for bringing this back for me. "

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.

Average all around? That’s 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 - don’t 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 it’s stale look and moth eaten head. Dull all the way to the useless finish.

Popular beer on the Big Island. Not much to it. Very light with subtle fruit flavors

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Definitely Kona’s least impressive brew. Pours pale gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma has straw, sugar, and some light malt. Flavor doesn’t have much else going on of interest.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Tap at the Honolulu Airport. Golden colored pour with medium sized white head. Malty nose, but not a lot else. Light malty finish, with very little hops. Drinkable.....

Bov (9624) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2009
<i>courtesy of MadDan</i> - hazy golden-blond colour with a little persistant white foam; gentle aroma of almonds and caramel; medium-bodied and quite sweet; moderate bitterness, clean palate and a subtle carbonation, quite long almondy finish - a decent session beer
