COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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!

0.5l bottle. This is a light cloudy one, kinda pale and golden in color with a really lacing white head. Smells alright actually. Grainy a really floral with hints of sawdust and hops. Some heather honey has also made its way in to the aroma. A faint fruity hint within there as well. It has a quite pleasant licorice hint in the taste that took me by surprise. Has to be the hp combo that’s fooling me. Not full-bodied but it’s definitely not watery either. A nice floral flavor also. Soft grainy with more of that sawdust. Can remind a little bit of a non alco beverage but it has a little honey sweetness and fruity flavor that goes nice along with the rest of the flavors. A little metallic and old hoppy flavor in the finish and aftertaste. No horrible beer this. 11.04.2014

Bottle. The Bottle may have been a bit old, but I wouldn’t have liked this fresh. Weird cloudy colour and super skunky taste.

McWorta (720) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 29, 2014
Lightly opalescent golden coloured with a fine lightly creamy white head. On the nose aromas of floral, citrus hops develop. The taste is lightly sweet developping a floral light bitterness which hover in balance on the palate. The taste is crisp, fresh with a snappy touch and offers a rather soft even nearly creamy texture. The finish is well balanced with a noticeable but not abrasive hop biterness, lasting medium long.

Bottle from Dobbies Garden Centre Newcastle. Pours pale yellow. Bitter, fruity slightly bready flavour. Very interesting flavours for a pilsner

500ml bottle from Tesco. Pours hazy yellow, no real head. Aromas of light lemon, cereal. Taste has a light herbal bitterness and a light malt sweetness. Finishes clear enough. A little thin bodied.

Lemon zest and apricot aroma, light fresh taste, easy drinking, slightly fizzy mouthfeel.

ClubGonzo (4293) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear bubbly light yellow body with a large creamy white head. Nose is citric peel, pale malts, sweet heather tones, lime and hints of bread and red berries in the back. Nice. Taste is bitter lemon zest, grapefruit, straw, pale malts and hints of resin and red fruits. Light body, medium to high carbonation. A fresh, easy-drinking and rather tasty golden ale which also packs a considerable bitter punch. Considering the low ABV, you get a lot of taste for your (ABV) bucks here. On top of its range, as far as I’m considered. But they could have had the honesty to name it for what it is, instead of the stupid "pilsner" thing.
