A good traditional pale ale malt to add to my batch for a little more malt character and to boost OG due to BIAB

Great Malt. Poorly Milled.
I've always enjoyed Fawcett MO. It's great to keep around for the occasional UK Brew days. Five stars to the product. The only reason I gave it two was because the milling was done VERY poorly on MoreBeers part. Maybe half of the kernels were crushed. I ended up losing nearly 15 points SG on the finished beer. Maybe it's time to get a mill.

Great Malt
I occasionally use Maris Otter Malt, usually when trying to clone a Bitter or ESB. I do think it improves the flavor over my regular two row base malt. I really like the way this just sort of pulls every thing together in the English style.
That being said, I am also one of those budget minded brewers, so I will continue to use my regular base malt for most styles and save the Maris Otter for my English ales.

A base grain I always have on hand
I know that many will consider this heresy, but I prefer this Maris Otter from Fawcett to the other M.O. malts MoreBeer sells. None of them are bad, this one just suits my tastes the best. The flavor is rich, but not overpowering, even when used for 95% of the grist in a pale ale or bitter. You really can't go wrong with Maris Otter for any British style beer (and a lot of others too).
