Golden ales are definitively modern (although they just bring the pale back into pale ales). As modern beers, most British golden ales also use American hops in good measure (I've had plenty of...

That recipe looks good, just replace some pale and reduce crystal to 2%, and chuck in the invert. The sources for Northdown and Challenger in White Shield are Michael Jackson and the WS ratebeer...

I guess IBU for this one has dropped over the centuries. From the bottle I had I'd expect 45-50 IBU with very little late additions relative to the early ones. Don't they mention Challenger and...

I had White Shield last month. Hoppy and caramelly at the same time. The #2 invert might give it some colour and honey. Fairly refreshing but a tad heavy somehow. Lovely aroma.

Yeah, you're meant to use unrefined cane sugar to get some of the impurities into the invert. I'd add it towards the end of the boil. I often consider candi sugar syrup as a substitute as the main...

Sounds good, but I wouldn't home roast as it's more like amber malt than crystal and you might as well get some amber. You could cook the invert for 40m while you mash to get invert #2 which would...

Some of you might be interested on how fighter planes go ale from England into France just after D-day by carrying the beer in fuel tanks or casks on the bomb racks. In Zytophile:

I have a couple of ale and beer recipes (posted one somewhere here). Pretty much pale malt of the day (maybe mix 8/1 pale and amber malt) to make a wort with an OG around 1.100 and then a single hop...

Some motueka for the boil? If is a relative of saaz a 15m addition could work. It's going to end up weirdly balanced with those hops. Citrus, fruit, blackcurrant, spice...

Bass used to age their pale ales by leaving the casks unprotected outdoors for a year, so go figure! Most likely what some consider badly kept others think is the whole point of aging.

I'd do the first wort with Pacific Jade as well. At that OG I don't think you need the crystal, specially if you use Vienna and UK 2row. Dry but malty is beautiful, no need to make it too sweet or...

I'd drop the crystal and leave 5oz carapils. Looks good with two base pale malts and Vienna for the abv. I'd drop the Nelson Sauvin to give more room to the more subtle hops. Maybe a 15m addition to...

Gosh, must be a long time since Carlsberg was that strong in the UK. The abv here dropped from 4.0% to 3.8% back in 2008.
