OPTIMA Caramel Light 600-750 Malt

A dark-coloured (EBC 600 to 750) caramel malt, made from green malt subjected to saccharification and caramelisation at high temperatures. Thanks to a special roasting process, the malt brings the taste and aroma of molasses, coffee and toasted caramel to the beer, enriching light beers with deep brown reflections.

It works great in dark or semi-dark beers, where a complex malt profile should dominate (up to 20 percent). Used in small amounts, it introduces delicate molasses, toasted caramel and roasted notes, which in an interesting way develop the malt dimension of the beer.

Aroma: toasted caramel, molasses, roasted grains, coffee, chocolate, slightly ashy.
