Maris Otter Low Colour

A low colour version of our Maris Otter® Pale Ale. This malt is produced using one of the UK’s oldest barley varieties by a handful of dedicated barley growers who are committed to keeping this classic variety alive for the brewing industry. Our Low Colour Maris Otter will retain the sweet and flavourful characteristics of this classic variety whilst providing a lower colour impact on your brew for any Best Ale type beers.
