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

harrisoni (17149) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle at The Parcel Yard Kings Cross. Clear gold thick white head. Slightly oxidised hop aroma. But then it explodes in the mouth with almost space dust intensity. Possibly the strangest golden ale I have ever had. Beer of the day no doubt. It’s completely woken up my jaded senses and made me think. Sherberty space dust finish is exquisite. Not many beers put a big stupid grin on my face but this did. Yep even after several gulps I love the finish. Space dust man its space dust.

drank out of the bottle. Cold and crisp. definitely a nice hop presence to this and much more than i expected. Solid crisp bitterness and light malt flavor. A bit metallic on the hop flavor as its quite sharp. Still very, very drinkable and refreshing.

jookos (5370) - FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle@tresbones (the "new lupolo"). Yellow, slight haze. Very tropical fresh aroma- pineapple, caramel, lime citrus. Good body for the abv. Tasty, caramel tropical flavours. Some grainyness, biscuitness, but overall pretty smooth malty, nicely fruity refreshing ale. [edit: this was a 4.4% abv version]
