Good Base Malt
I use this frequently as the base malt in my darker and more malt forward beers such as my American Red Ale and American Brown Ale. Always a good malty flavor with good efficiency in the mash. Would definitely recommend for recipes that need just a bit more malty goodness in the base than plain ol' 2-row.

Not for me
I used this malt for quite a few batches thinking that I liked Rahr so the pale ale malt, being less expensive than others, would be a good economical choice. Then I started having problems, first I thought it was the english caramel adjunct malt I used, then I thought it was the hops, then too high OG with low attenuation, etc. Then it dawned on me that the one common thread between all of these beers that I was disappointed with was this base malt. It has a certain sweet, malty, caramel flavor that I find off putting. I have used it from anywhere between 90% and 50% of the grist and it is still a noticeable flavor. It does subside with age and is somewhat tolerable in lower quantities, but I will not be purchasing this base malt again.

So I found a recipe from a brewery that calls for “10 lbs Pale ale malt 4.1 SRM.” I picked up the XML file and it calls for “2-row Pale Malt” in Beersmith. No Lovibond listed. I bought this malt. Should I use standard 2-row or roll with this? It’s a NEIPA

BEST ANSWER: Depends on what you're looking for. If you're making an ale, you can use this malt to make it a bit darker. I use it with 6-row for cream ale (11 lbs 6-row, 7 lbs pale ale) for 10 gallon batches. Works well every time.
