Golden Promise is an early maturing spring barley grown in Scotland. It is basically the Scottish equivalent to Maris Otter and has many similar applications. It is often used by brewers to replicate classic Scottish ales, to wonderful effect. Its flavor is often described as being clean and slightly sweet, almost honeylike. Because of this, it makes a great base for pale ales and IPAs, among other styles. It can also be used as the base  in making almost all British style ales, and many hoppy American style beers as well. A wonderful grain with a world of potential!

Golden Promise is a vastly under-utilized malt, in my opinion. I"ve made beers with it as the base grain, as well as beers with a couple of pounds substituted for two row. I do this with my annual xmas beer and it always gets rave reviews.
