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.

Fantastic Base
This is a fantastic base malt for nearly every beer. Has a good malty profile, wonderful in any American beer and tasty enough by itself to do English and Belgian ales as well. This is my go-to base malt for almost everything.

Nice malt for bitters and pale ales
This malt works very well for pale ales and bitters. The malt has depth and will enhance your beers.
