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°

Gachupines (1251) - USA - AUG 30, 2013
Clear golden with a little bit of white head. Aroma is mild bread. Flavor is also light bread with a light finish. Could be a bit crisper for how light it is. Nothing really offensive, but nothing interesting either.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold pour with a very thin and soapy white head. Bitter and slightly skunky aroma. Very bitter at the start with some of that skunked flavor but has a bit of malt backbone coming up as the bitterness fades.

Somebody left this at my house after a party. Very smooth, a lot less bitter than I expected. Malty, not too sweet, a little bit of almond flavor. Well balanced. Mine was a little flat but I had left the bottle outside a bit so maybe that contributed to that.

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft at The Mansion. Golden body with a white head. Flavor a good balance of semi sweet maltiness with some happiness rounding it out. Not bad for a hot summer afternoon but nothing special.
