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!

[email protected] BF. Some aromatic hops in the nose-tropical fruit. Lightly grainy, ever so slightly toffeed malt. Hops are quite fruity and fresh (kiwi fruit), pleasant dry finish.

tipsytoad (85) - JERSEY - JUL 28, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 cask at the old moot hall inn, nottingham. a beautiful beer, light, hoppy and very refreshing. the pump clip describes the beer as brewed in the pilsner style, but i doubt one would be able to identify this without prior knowledge. the only complaint is that at 3.5% it lacks a kick. still very pleasant.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2004
Cask conditioned - Handpump - Derby BF. A very pale beer (Is it lager or ale?) with a floral hoppy aroma. The taste is crisp, hoppy and, again, floral. A very nice beer whatever it actually is!

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2004
Cask at Royal Oak, Ockbrook. Deep yellow body, snow white head, rather earthy aroma but a wonderfully creamy taste, not full-on clotted cream but a subtle Murry Mints creaminess.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 This is described on the pump clip as a "cask pilsner" but apparently has Styrian Goldings hops and pale malts as well as lager malts. So it is something of a mixture between a "pilsner" and one of those light summer ales. Nonetheless it is a very pleasant quaffing beer. Very pale straw colour, very floral and very refreshing. Hoppy and aromatic on the nose, clean on the palate and quite dry on the finish, but with a hint of sweetness. Cask, Great British Beer Festival, August 2003

SilkTork (5659) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2003
Cask, Crown & Thistle, Gravesend. Pale gold colour. A light bodied and very subtle beer - the flavour is very restrained and delicate. Slips down easily with just a touch of malt and a light sprinkling of hops. More of a lager than an ale.
