I like the depth. It's a well designed, balanced malt. I used 85% of Crisp Scottish Pale Ale Malt for and English Best Bitter, along with a bit of Wheat, Amber and Dark malts for a bit of taste and also color adjustments.100% East Kent Golding for hops. Old school and traditional.

Crisp Scottish Pale Ale malt certainly delivered the goods. It’s malty and bready with some nice sweetness. Great thick mouthfeel and depth of flavor. I’d certainly use it again. I am from Scotland, so maybe I’m a little biased, but I wouldn’t use this malt if it wasn’t quality!
