A floor-malted barley malt from a single barley variety (Optic), and produced by a centuries-old, family-owned maltster. Optic is another malt considered to be one of the last of the traditional English Pale malt varieties still produced in the UK. Adds a degree of biscuit flavor. Brighter and lighter in flavor than Pearl, a great malt for the production of Real Ales.
