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!

McWorta (555) - 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.

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

ClubGonzo (3923) - 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.
