Golden ale (UK)

In the United Kingdom, a Golden ale is a style of beer developed in the late 20th century by breweries to compete with the large light lager market.

A typical golden ale has an appearance similar to that of a Pilsener. Malt character is subdued and the hop profile ranges from spicy to citrus; common hop additions include Styrian Golding and Cascade. Alcohol is in the 4% to 5% range ABV.

Some examples of the style include:
* SA Brain SA Gold
* Breconshire Brewery Golden Valley
* Crouch Vale Brewer's Gold
* Harvestoun Bitter & Twisted
* Woodforde's Sundew
