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!

Cask, Clachnaharry Inn, Inverness. Had this down as a pale ale.... Hazy golden with a thin white head. Grassy, fragrant hop aroma. Light and fruity with decent hop balance and a slightly bitter finish. Good thirst slaker.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 23, 2007
Cask, Aikmans Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Clear yellowy gold with a thin white head. Lots of biscuit and seaweed in the nose, with some maltiness, but some weird grain that distracts. Mouth is salty seaweed with some refreshing hop and lagery malt taste with some added biscuit. Quite lively and refreshing towards the end.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
Clear golden ale with a sparkler’s 2cm white foam. Hoppy, mineral, salty, herbal and flowery nose where grainy malts stay shadowed. Lean bodied, foamy texture. Mild refreshing acidity. Very, very simple, but rather effective golden ale.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2007
Cask. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is eggs, vegetables, fruity hops and some wooden hints. Flavour is the same with some rather sweet fruity notes and zest. Aftertaste is mainly fruits and yeast. A quite nice one to the flavour.

vadersnightcap (80) - SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Cask, Firstly it was a gorgeous summers night and i enjoyed this outside in a beer garden. Really enjoyable, thirst quenching and eminantly drinkable. some great apricot and peach flavours that combine well with the reidual malt finsih. perhaps lacking a little bit of body and hit but good none the less.

pivnizub (10182) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2007
Cask (Fort William): Golden coloured, small lacing white head; distinctive floral hoppy and a bit fruity (peaches)nose; really light bodied, solid bitter flavour; fruity and aromatic bitter finish. Much more an IPA than a "german" Pils..........

High sulphur in linger. A wierd concoction of lager in a cask and not a keg. I prefer mine fizzy and black. an unexsiting experience from an unexcite brewery. Give me a french stick and bicycle anyday.
