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!

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.

I enjoyed several pints of this wonderful beer at the Volunteer Arms in Musselburgh. Quite a unique style, flowery and fruity hop aromas, and like Nimbus there is a slight sweetness. A crackin’ pint enjoyed in a crackin’ pub.

A very enjoyable cask ale. Nice hazy gold/yellow colour. Nice long bitter finish. A great beer on a Sunday afternoon.

Cask conditioned at The Oxford Bar, Edinburgh. Gold with white head. For a pilsner ale crossover this came over really quite well, oily lemony hops on a light, biscuit malt background. Pretty decent.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 This is described on the pump clip as a "cask pilsner" but apparently has Styrian Goldings hops and pale malts as well as lager malts. So it is something of a mixture between a "pilsner" and one of those light summer ales. Nonetheless it is a very pleasant quaffing beer. Very pale straw colour, very floral and very refreshing. Hoppy and aromatic on the nose, clean on the palate and quite dry on the finish, but with a hint of sweetness. Cask, Great British Beer Festival, August 2003

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!

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.
