Perhaps the most versatile of all our roasted products, Simpsons’ Amber Malt can be used in a wide variety of beers to add biscuity toasty notes and a beautiful brown hue. Its delicate roast flavour makes it suitable for adding toasty notes to all Dark Beers, as well as lighter Ales and Lagers. Amber Malt brings a clean, crisp dryness to balance delicate floral hops and increases foam stability.
