Spoke with a semi-local brewpub about purchasing a half dozen bags of malt and the brand they have on hand is Muntons Whole Pale Malt (Pearl). My normal base malt is Briess 2-Row and I'm wondering how well the two malts match up and the effect it is going to have on my recipes.

Anybody have any experience with the Muntons Whole Pale Malt (Pearl)?

Curious myself. I just cracked open a 50 lb. sack and brewed an IPA with it this past Friday, so it's still fermenting.

From Cryer's website:
Pearl Pale Ale Malt: Used extensively on the West Coast of the USA in IPA's etc this variety is a great workhorse in small and large breweries. The grains are fully modified and it gives a great extract and full malt flavour profile.

Very malty profile. Low grainy-ness ( I guess you could call that tannins). My favorite pale malt.

Sounds good to me, I think I'll pick up a handful of bags.

Wanted to bring this back up to see if anyone had any further comments on Pearl.

I came in to about 15 pounds of this today.  Probably can't brew with it for another 2-3 weeks though.

How it's malted and kilned probably has more effect on the flavor than the variety of barley. So who is the maltster?

Sorry, should have specified.  Thomas Fawcett & Sons.  Here is what I found:

 

"A floor-malted barley malt from a single barley variety (Pearl), and produced by a centuries-old, family-owned maltster. Fawcett's primary barley variety used by several of England's largest and finest breweries. As a base malt, Pearl lends a dry breadiness. Recommended for traditional Pale Ales"

 

I plan on  using it for a pale ale.
