Cara Pale is produced from green malt in a roasting drum. Despite the low colour
value, Cara Pale is a true caramel malt, i.e. the starch has been gelatinised and
saccharified within the kernel. Cara Pale is sweet and caramel-like. The enzymatic
activity of Cara Pale is negligible.
Cara Pale is used to produce a full-bodied beer with a clean, round flavour. Due to its
low colour value it is suitable also for light coloured beers.
