Nice Malt
I would give it 5 stars but there is a lot of chaff and small rocks (2 so far) in it. Otherwise it makes good beer.

GW Northwest Pale Ale Malt (aka American Pale Malt)
A SOLID pale malt that's useful across nearly any beer style. If you're looking for a malt that provides a little more malt character than none - like most US 2rows - then this is what you want. Simple enough character for a blonde and still a solid enough base for a bitter. I almost hate giving is such kudos because if more people buy it then GW or MB may raise the price :D

Great base malt for ales!
So far, I am very happy with my results brewing with Great Western Pale Malt. Though I have yet to taste the results, I'm sure they will be as impressive as other Great Western malts I have brewed with.

Great for IPA
Tried this for the first time with a double IPA and didn't add any specialty malts---very pleased with the results. 15 lbs with amarillo,mosiac and citra late boil additons---heavy dry hop---MMMMM!!!

Great Malt
Used this malt on a Blonde and it came out great. Awesome color and just a hint of malt flavor. Want to try this with a Pale ale one day.

Great Western is a great maltster!
I love that their malt is priced right, and adds a little more color and a unique flavor. I use it frequently.

Pale Malt for Pale Ales
I like the slightly maltier flavor for pale ales than I get with just regular 2-row malt.
