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

Bottle in Honolulu. Solid take on the genre, let down by a slightly chemical first hit, but a pretty solid fruity palate with a lasting sweetness in the finish.

blackflag321 (442) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle pour to shaker. Light orange-gold. Medium head. Fruity aroma. Mild hoppy and slightly sweet taste. Finish is thin, but not unexpected for the style and low ABV.

Bottle. Bright yellow color with very little head. Aromas of wine grapes, lime, and hops. Strong carbonation and a slightly bitter, almost sour finish. Very crisp and refreshing.

Onslow (1094) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear gold brew with white head. Very nice aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is somewhat weak malt at the start and a watered down hops in the finish - kind of a surprise given the great aroma. Palate is watery. For a golden ale it is OK.

ERB92 (171) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Fruits, pine and some malts in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter.Light body with a average carbonation. Not bad, good aroma, but the flavour and mouth feel disappoint me a bit.

29.03.2014. 11FL.OZ. Bottle at Stuelands Apotek. Pale yellow colour with white head. Smooth soft and rather thin malty aroma. Notes of pine and junioerus hopping. Fresh but rather boring beer. Its like boring beer with hops...! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer4000 (4312) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2014
355 ml bottle. A clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Mild aroma with a hint of malt and citric fruit like peaches. Flavor is surprisingly nice as the aroma did not promise that much. Soft, smooth malt, tropical and citric fruit, moderate bitterness. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Medium body and light in aftertaste. A nice thirst quencher that I easily could have stocked up in the fridge.

Aroma is great and beautiful appearance. Taste has a bit too many hops for me. Palate pretty smooth. Overall I gave it a 5.
