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

Had the chance to visit the brewery on the big island a couple years ago and loved their selection of beers! Two good things came of this discovery, one being that the whole island serves it so i was able to indulge with most meals and two being now that I know about Kona Brew I’m able to spot it out in stores, purchase it, and share it with friends who haven’t been to hawaii...yet!

American Blonde Ale style beer that is smooth and lightweight with tropical aroma and hoppy flavoring. A lighter alcohol content weighed in at 4.4% with overall a pleasant citrus taste. Available in draft and bottle form.

thepatrickman (837) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle from Greg (gregwilson) -- cheers! Amazingly bland, like a Budweiser bottle wearing a fancy label. There’s really very little to comment on here -- it’s light, crisp, and it tastes generally like beer. It’s technically an ale, but it could definitely pass as a lager. Not bad, per se, just eminently forgettable.

Color is light gold. Clear and filtered. Aroma is faint. Hints of malt and grains. Taste is light and crisp. Hints of hops, malt, and grains. Smooth. Not overpowering. Mouthfeel is light and there is very little aftertaste. Does not linger. *12 oz bottle into pint glass ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
