Amber and Melanoidin Malts
Typically Amber and Melanoidin malts share some characteristics, though their production process is significantly different. Also different levels of application can be seen, either focusing on the coloring of pale beers, such as pilsners, or by bringing a slight decoction flavour to the beer. The level of modification in the melanoidin certainly helps.
