Kona Brewing Company
Big Wave Golden Ale*
Kona Brewing Company Big Wave Golden Ale (4.4% alcohol by volume) has a big piney, minty Pacific Northwest nose supported by fruit and traces of light malts. It pours brilliant gold under a 1" clingy white foam cap. Tropical fruit somewhere between mango and papaya leads the palate lightly sweetened by caramel with traces of light toast. It finishes with a pleasant, yet assertive hop bitterness. The beer drinks smooth and creamy with medium body and carbonation. I rate this refreshing, easy to drink beer 80.
