6 reviews for Gladfield American Ale Malt

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    Does exactly what it says. Same quality as gladfield’s ale malt but with more subtle maltiness. Its been great in my american style pales and IPAs.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Ben Miller

    Awesome malt for big IPAs. Ferments out nice and dry and gives a nice light colour.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    Such a reliable and high quality base malt with a beautiful colour and reserved malt character. Brilliant for hop-forward beers – I’ve been using this to showcase NZ hop varieties and it lets their subtleties shine through. Great extract efficiency rates and high fermentability make this a solid backbone for your hoppy beers.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5


    Love this Malt, has that bit of extra maltiness that I also use in my stouts and comes clean with no foreign matter, shows the attention/care paid by Gladfield.

    A great consistent colour and malt flavour. A truly excellent and my go to base malt.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5


    An awesome base ale malt that produces clean malt flavours. It has been extremely consistent since I started using it 6 months ago. It does not have toasted flavours that I have found in other ale malts and is exactly what I am looking for.
