Thomas Fawcett and Sons
Produced by Thomas Fawcett & Sons malting company, Brown Malt is typically specified in mild ales and darker, English style bitters. Brown malt is similar to the original style of dark malt utilized in the creation of traditional British Porter. Introducing a slightly biscuity and smoky character, the roasted character provides interesting facets to the overall flavor and aroma profile of the finished beer.
