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

Fantomasus' rating

   AROMA 1/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 5/20
Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a light gold with a gray white head that disappears. Aroma was interesting at first (unique) but wound up being bad: wet hay, herbal hops, barnyard (bad), rotten eggs, and urine. Taste is almost balanced but there is a foot odor funk. Im not typing any more. This may be the worst beer I have ever had.
