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!

jamestulloch (1831) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 1, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2011 Aroma: Difficult to discern. Clean with faint lemon and grass notes.

Appearance: Light yellow, mild carbonation. Minimal head.

Taste: Refreshing and very drinkable. Not particularly complex.

Palate: Thin body.

Overall: A very moreish pilsner that I will buy again for its clean, refreshing taste. The perfect session beer.

Bottle at home. Light straw colour, very clear with a smallish head that disappears quickly. Sweet aroma of grapefruit and noble hops. Refreshing sweet taste with plenty of citrus notes and a moderately hoppy finish. Decent pilsner.

wavers1 (910) - Notown, California, USA - JUL 8, 2011
great session beer thanks to secret santa, nice and fresh! pours a crisp gold with a nominal white head that leaves nice lacing. drinks very easily, excellent session brew. very refreshing, subtle hop and malt profiles mingle nicely. nice drinkable body without being complete water, decent amount of creaminess in the back palate with a slightly oily finish. definitely decent stuff.

mile (3296) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some citrus hoppyness and fruitiness. Body is light to medium, malty and dryish flavor, some citrus hoppyness and fruitiness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, citrus hoppyness. OK light-bodied dryish golden ale. Although quite light-bodied, citrus hoppyness and fruitiness goes well with malty and dryish body.
