Maris Otter is a real thoroughbred and this winter barley variety is still the favoured choice of many cask ale brewers. In the field, its yield has been surpassed hugely by more modern varieties, so it has to be grown on contract for the maltster each year by selected farmers. The resulting malt is typically described as having a rich, nutty flavour. Performance in the brew house is predictable and consistent with excellent run-offs. Typically this variety of barley is used to create a pale malt, which is the basis of most ales. This is the most highly prized of all the pale malts.
