On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured a light brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a lively herbal hop atop a clean grainy pale malt.
The taste consisted of a vibrant herbal, a piney hop and fruity esters.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a vigorous carbonation.
Overall a very tasty hop forward blonde ale.
Serving type: on-tap

This poured with, of course, a golden color that had a general thinness about it. The head was fizzy and thin but it held a nice bit of lacing.
The nose is a light herbal hop of pine and lupilin. Not much else comes out.
The flavor is a light and refreshing Pilsner malt, with a cracker, dough and breadiness. The hops are mostly pine but it has a touch of lemon.
The feel is very light but never watery, refreshing and quenchable.
I actually drank this at home but would have loved to have had it at the beach as it does a good job of giving out enough flavor but holding that thirst quenching personality.

Big Wave Golden Ale brewed by Kona Brewing Co with an ABV of 4.4% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice thick white head. The smell is bitter with some grains. Nothing special about the smell of this brew. The taste is different- it is spicy but smooth. I'm not really picking up on the bitterness in this brew. There is a nice balance to this brew. The end to this brew is clean with a nice finish. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Mouthfeel is nice. Kona Brewing Co. did a nice job with this one. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out 5.
I would get this brew again.
