Crisp Light Crystal 150 Malt is a great malt for adding sweet, caramel flavour to Pale and Amber Ales, IPAs and bitters. The lower colour is due to the shorter kilning time and this maintains the sweetness with getting too intense with the caramel notes. It will bring deep red colour to the beers depending on how much is used.
To make Light Crystal 150 Malt Crisp increase the temperature further and the endosperm darkens and flavours develop further. Think of Crystal Malts like you would make caramel at home. With Light Crystal the crystalised sugars present imparts an intense caramel flavour. Light Crystal will also impart a reddish hue to the beer and it works very well in Bitters and Ruby beers.
