A floor-malted barley malt from a single barley variety (Optic), and produced by a centuries-old, family-owned maltster. Optic, also known as Spring Pale Ale Malt, 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.

I used this to brew an ESB, and the nutty taste is a nice treat. I usually use Fawcett Maris Otter, but this adds a different dimension to the beer.
