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!

tombyars (1749) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2012
First tasted this at Esquire House, Glasgow in October 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Wheaty cereal note in the very short aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt gives a sharp citric base with a tart lemon rind note full in the mouth. Citric flavours continues with lemony hops present in the resiny and slightly floral aftertaste. Finish is fruity and astringent with lemon peel and dry dusty hops still evident at the end. A decent session pilsner - Tennents take note on how it should be done!

Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow (18 May 12) - very pale yellow ale, thin white head, good temperature, floral hop aroma, grassy / floral hop, then mild citrus, moderate carbonation

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Cask gravity, Coventry BF, 13/04/12. Handsome, bright gold body with a thick tuft of foam. Curry leaf, urinal cake, pine aroma. Drying, full, buttered lemon flavour with finishing biscuit. Almost Sorachi. Rubbery, almond tones as from a much stronger lager; vanilla. Not wholly convinced.

Cask at the Malt and Hops. I didn’t think much of this, it’s not much of a pilsner. Some hoppy bitterness and not much else.

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 18, 2012
Cask at The Malt & Hops. Golden brown with white head. Doesn’t taste like pilsner. Malty sweet and bitter.

rosenbergh (11760) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2012
Cask at The Grill, Aberdeen, Scotland.
Clear pale yellow colour with small white head. Yeast and mild grassy hops in aroma. Grassy hops, biscuit and malt in flavour. Sweet cookies and grassy hops put together. Smooth. Hoppiness in aftertaste.

Scopey (15500) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2011
Cask at the Grill, Aberdeen. It pours slightly hazy straw yellow, with a big, fluffy white head. The nose is white bread, toasted malt, hay and floral. The taste is lemon, lime, toasted white bread, straw, hay, soap, floral and light honey sweetness, with a light bitter finish. Light body and soft carbonation. A refreshing, easy drinking cask light ale.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 15, 2011
Cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of lemon, caramel and barley. Similar flavours with a very dry lemon finish. More citric than your average pilsner.

imdownthepub (15161) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2011
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.

FatPhil (16953) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2011
Cask (Bree Louise, London)
7- Fruity citrussy aroma.
3+ Pale orange, tiny head.
7+ Lovely fresh hops, slightly green. Very well balanced, sweet light grains.
4+ Soft palate, carbonation low. Lovely citrussy finish, bready too.
14 Don’t care what words they use on the label, this is a great pale bitter.
