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!

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] A hazy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is very hoppy and grassy. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, grass, and hay, but the body is thin.

tipsytoad (85) - JERSEY - JUL 28, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 cask at the old moot hall inn, nottingham. a beautiful beer, light, hoppy and very refreshing. the pump clip describes the beer as brewed in the ’pilsner’ style, but i doubt one would be able to identify this without prior knowledge. the only complaint is that at 3.5% it lacks a kick. still very pleasant.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2004
Cask conditioned - Handpump - Derby BF. A very pale beer (Is it lager or ale?) with a floral hoppy aroma. The taste is crisp, hoppy and, again, floral. A very nice beer whatever it actually is!

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2004
Cask at Royal Oak, Ockbrook. Deep yellow body, snow white head, rather earthy aroma but a wonderfully creamy taste, not full-on clotted cream but a subtle Murry Mints creaminess.
