Some maltsters also manufacture a lighter shade of chocolate malt, made with a similar process but roasted to a lighter color. Pale chocolate malt has a unique toasted flavor and is one of the easiest ways to add rich, toasty malt flavor to a dark mild or stout.
In small quantities, pale chocolate malt can also be used to add color to dark beers.
Pale chocolate malt is made by Beeston's, although this is not usually available to home brewers. The most common pale chocolate available to home brewers is the Fawcett malt, described below.

General brewing information
Pale chocolate malt is used in darker beers such as porters and stouts to add color and richness. It is used in preference to chocolate malt when less color from the grains is desired and a grain with milder flavors is needed.
