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

DrnkMcDermott (3053) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Sample bottle, mainland brewed. Golden color, with a little amber in the center, and a sudsy head. Malty nose is a bit dry for a blond ale. Taste is of a beer that has fermented out just a little bit more, so its not as sweet as too many light ales are. This bottle has sat around for a while, but its held up nicely, and retains a nice prickly mouthful of bubbles.

Fin (10157) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Mum and Keith, cheers you two!, purchased from Whitby a beer shop I believe. I consumed this at home Wednesday 22nd March 2017, another non beer night when Im naughtily drinking beer. Golden in colour, hazy with a white head, fruity but another rather drab beer. A bit thin in the mouth, touch of soapy hops, nice soft mouthfeel. Ok. A6 A4 T5 P3 Ov10 2.8

Ultra refined clear gold color with a fluffy white head of foam. Sweet corn and cereal base with a light honey touch. Doesnt quite transcend me to the islands.

macca147 (45) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2017
355ml bottle at Stitch bar in Sydney. Pours a pale golden colour. Aroma: very mild aromas of honeycomb, pineapple and coconut. Definitely not an aromatic beer. Taste: Mild honeycomb and tropical flavours. Quite sweet for a golden ale. Not flavoursome. Just sweet. Not particularly well balanced. Watery texture. Easy to drink, but a bit uninspiring.

MisterTrick (5) - Olney, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2017 does not count

Vells (1755) - Rīga, LATVIA - MAR 7, 2017
Quite simple and nice but packs decent aroma kick with tropical fruits, some grass. Decent maltiness, some caramel. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness. Nothing fancy, but serves purpose - nice thirst quencher
