COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Changed name from Latitude Pale Ale to Latitude Pilsner.
Available in cask (described as "Cask Pilsner"), and in bottle ("Highland Pilsner"), this beer is a delicious straw-coloured session beer, dominated by crisp, fresh, citrus hop character from classic German "noble hops".
Brewed with a balance of best British Ale Malt and Lager Malt, this beer exhibits a pale straw colour. The aroma combines a zesty attack and an apricot fruitiness with the subtle floral hop notes of the Styrian Golding, Saaz and Hallertauer Hersbrucker hops.
Moderate levels of residual sweetness are balanced by a crisp, well-rounded bitterness to give a clean, refreshing mouthfeel in the best traditions of pilsners – pint after pint!

wimpyjoe (3703) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Straw coloured lager cum ale with a small head. It has flavour but its dry texture subdues it with a very small lemon citrus nose, and kick in its taste.

2014-06-30. Crisp dark yellow body nice white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, floral hops, muted overall. Flavour is lightly bitter throughout, modest floral lightly grassy hops. Light lemon as it warms. Average to light bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay, but overly mild. Cask at Grog and Gruel, Fort William.

Cask. Pours a pale yellow colour with a fluffy white head, aroma is all citrus fruits and hops, taste is bitter with fruit,which leads to a dry bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Bottle, gift from Pamela H. Hazy pale golden body with a thin white head that holds well. Fine carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of grain, hay and a hint of lemon. Flavour is exactly like the aroma with a crisp, bitter quality. Clean and grassy. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. Supremely drinkable.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2012
First tasted this at Esquire House, Glasgow in October 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Wheaty cereal note in the very short aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt gives a sharp citric base with a tart lemon rind note full in the mouth. Citric flavours continues with lemony hops present in the resiny and slightly floral aftertaste. Finish is fruity and astringent with lemon peel and dry dusty hops still evident at the end. A decent session pilsner - Tennents take note on how it should be done!

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Cask gravity, Coventry BF, 13/04/12. Handsome, bright gold body with a thick tuft of foam. Curry leaf, urinal cake, pine aroma. Drying, full, buttered lemon flavour with finishing biscuit. Almost Sorachi. Rubbery, almond tones as from a much stronger lager; vanilla. Not wholly convinced.

Cask at the Malt and Hops. I didn’t think much of this, it’s not much of a pilsner. Some hoppy bitterness and not much else.

Cask at The Malt & Hops. Golden brown with white head. Doesn’t taste like pilsner. Malty sweet and bitter.
