Islands golden ale clone
This is brewed by Karl Strauss and as far as I know only available on draft at Islands restaurants.

Anybody have recipe ideas? :mug:

I found this thread but I don't think Woodie Gold is the same thing as the Golden Ale.

I had this recently and really enjoyed it. Nice easy-drinking ale to go with burgers and fries on a hot night. Like an American pale ale but with something like 20 IBUs. Anyone have any ideas on how to brew something like this?

The beer I brewed morphed into a Belgian Golden Bitter Ale. It was pitched with WLP001 California but the lemon zest totally accentuated the taste with a Belgian-ness. It's a crowd pleaser, especially for those who like Pale Ales. Below is the recipe.

6 lbs. Pale LME
.5 lbs Carapils
.5 Crystal 10L
.5 Crystal 20L
2 oz. Cascade @ 55
1 oz. Saaz @ 15
1 tsp Irish Moss @ 15
.75 oz. Lemon Zest @ 15
WLP001 California
ABV ~4.5%
