I think they are all different strains of barley, not sure of they are all floor malted or only some?

Good question.
Maris Otter and Halcyon are both Winter barley, Golden Promise is a spring barley.
I'm not a techy maltster so I can't add much, but it might give you something more to look into.

Edit: A little more here

The differences between UK malting varieties isn't huge and which one a brewery uses in the UK has as much to do with picking one and sticking to it (for consistancy) as anything else.

Golden Promise is pecularly Scottish, and is mostly only grown for Malt Whisky production these days.

BTW, that site needs updating. Beeston Maltings closed a few years ago when Scottish & Newcastle (who owned the building) decided to terminate the lease and sell it for development. :angry:

Not forgetting the lovely "Timothy Taylor Landlord" brewed from Golden Promise...

Taylors are the obvious exception to the rule. But that's Taylor's for you.
