Same maltster makes that ale malt, stout malt, lager malt and distilling malt. All different varieties of malted barley.I spoke to the BSG rep about this malt at last year's NHC. He saw no problem with subbing it for Maris Otter, except that you might need to use a little less because of greater extract potential.
BSG was giving away samples of the stout malt at GABF last year. I picked some up and used it to make a hoppy lager. I got great extraction from it and the flavor was very soft and worked well for a lager. Less grainy than many pale malts. That matches the maltster's description very well.
All that is to say when the maltster's website says the ale malt is brewed to be sweeter and amber-colored I believe it's probably accurate. I'd suspect it is similar to a maris otter rather than an American pale malt.
Tickets are still available - I just bought mine.Check out 30th St in North Park for a lot of interesting restaurants as well as the Toronado SDIn that vein, if you're going to be in town on the Tuesday, there are possibly still tickets left to the Taste of North Park event. That would give you a chance to sample the food (and beer) in that area for $20.
