This works very well I think. I’m a huge fan of Citra hops but generally find them in pale ales. In the pilsener the grassy hops bitterness is still there is a smooth medium body but there is a citrusy aftertaste.

Can from Cotteridge Wines. I drank the first half thinking ’why does this taste strange?’. Then I realised that the "strangeness" of this lager, was the absence of normal lager hops. It all made sense in my brain. Then I stopped over thinking things and just enjoyed this. It was nice.

21.2.2015. Clear pale orange. Aroma has grass, malt and citrus characters of pilsener but also sweetness. Taste is somehow unpleasant, too sweet for pilsener. Lots of herbs, grainy.

jmgreenuk (5531) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 25, 2015
Can from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin broken white head and some brokem lace. The aroma is light grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with light yeast, grass, pine needle palate. Light bodied witn average carbobation. Nice but not enough Citra for me.

33cl can courtesy of and shared with JMGreenUK. Thin white head. Hazy golden pour. Nice citrus bitterness. Very drinkable

imdownthepub (11145) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Can, 330ml as Faceless Spreadsheet Ninja from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Gold with white head. Not a Pilsener as I would know it but you live and learn. Light on the palate but with a fruit salad fruitiness, hints of citrus hops, there is a light pine like note with a resinous hint. Pretty decent beer.

MayumiH (301) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle as Faceless Spreadsheet Ninja. Soapy pine aroma. Sweet sour taste. Mildly citrusy. Malty bittersweet finish.

JohnRMurdoch (3636) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
330ml can from Valhalla’s Goat as faceless spreadsheet Ninja. Dark orange amber, good head. Hoppy corn aroma. Smokey sherbet biscuit flavour. Hoppy aftertaste. Not really a Pilsener, more a hybrid with a pale ale.
