Recently boought this for a honey brown ale and the grains were so plump I had to adjust the mill. Want more of these plump seeds for my next brew.

Great Western is a quality maltster and the pale ale malt has a little more complexity then standard 2-row

Love this Base Malt
A 2-row base with extra character. When I'm not using Maris Otter, I use this. Good extract, great, almost toasty, taste. Love this malt.

Tremendous flavor
This malt is killer! Very similar to a british pale malt, but so much less expensive! I use it in place of Golden Promise in a Scottish light ale, and it's great!

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
