Beer Wednesday – Kona Big Wave Golden Ale

Happy Beer Wednesday!

This week, I’m happy to be hiding from the cold, and awaiting spring, by reviewing a delicious beer from Hawai’i, Kona Brewing Company’s Big Wave golden ale.

This golden ale has just 21 IBUs and is just 4.4% ABV, making it an awesome session beer. The hops were sweet, and citrusy, with  a smooth, pineapple nose, and a clean, bright finish. The malt flavor was light, and the color was beautiful. This is a beer that any non-beer drinker would love, and the low ABV means that if you “accidentally” drink six or seven of them, you won’t regret it in the morning.

Overall, I’m really happy to give this tasty, smooth ale a 5/6 on my six-pack scale. Give a few of them a try, and let me know if you can see summer coming from where you are.

  1. Just the name implies Hawaii in a bottle. I’ll have to see if I can stumble across this here in the midwest. I’ve got an interesting cherry stout from Bell’s that I’ll likely be reviewing this week. Always enjoy reading your reviews.

    • Yeah, I really needed it with how much snow we’ve been getting this winter. It’s not even that the snow is deep, but it’s constant, and I’m ready for spring.

      Thanks again for stopping by. I’m pretty sure it’s just the two of us reading these reviews, but at least we’re in good company!
