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!

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
1/2 pint cask, Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Golden coloured and with a light reddish hue. Small creamy, but not entirely consistent head. Light malty and somewhat sourish from hops aroma. Soft, but lightly bitter flavour. Mouthfeel is smooth like a cask ale even though this is supposed to be a pilsener. Only the distinct cat-piss hops can identify this as a pilsener. Slightly oily finish.

harrisoni (17353) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2006
Cask gravity at Kent BF 2006. In the programme it is down as Highlands and Islands Brewery. Not sure if this and Orkney have merged. Pale gold colour with lasting white head. Very light, bit yeasty, some citric hop. Bit bland, citrus hops are ok if a bit bleached.

Cask, Lincoln Fest 06. Light gold with white foam. Aromas are lemon with some soap. Zesty and hoppy with soft grain. Hints of apricot and sulphur. Flavours are very fruity with apricots and lemon. Prickly and resinous hops. Dry towards the finish. Extremely easy to drink. Perhaps could do with a stronger finish.
