Kona Brewing Co. Big Wave Golden Ale

Big Wave Golden Ale is another beer from Kona Brewing Company in Hawaii. This beer is made in Portland, Oregon, and is 4.4% ABV. This ale is a core Kona Brewing beer. This golden ale has Pale 2 Row Premium and Carmel 20 malts. It also has Galaxy and city hops. This beer pours a golden color with a one-finger head. The aroma is fruity, sweet, crisp, and lightly hoppy. The flavor is light, crisp, fruity/sweet, and with a hint of a hoppy note. The mouthfeel is light. This beer is refreshing. Then it has a nice hoppy note finish that quickly turns into a faint orange. The aftertaste is hoppy, sweet, and crisp, with a little orange flavor that lingers for a second or two. This beer is average, it’s good, but nothing jumps out. I give Big Wave a B-. It’s a beer that you can finish. I mean, the flavor is going to hinder you from finishing it. It’s also not going to immediately draw you into having another. I wouldn’t pass up this beer. But if you do, you aren’t missing too much. Please stay safe, be kind to all, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
