Just curious (and a little rebellious)--has anyone made a good pilsner using "C" hops?
Or does it come across more like a blonde ale if "C" hops are used?
I don't think the taste would be recognizable as a pilsner, but I like where you're headed. To me, aside from the distinct pilsner malt flavor, pilsners are all about that spicy/herbal/floral noble hops. Plus, to my tastes, I think the "C" hops really don't come across right (at least for bittering) without some hardness in the water, where your typical BoPils likes really soft water.
Of course, you could split the difference and brew a noble-hopped Pils, then dry hop with some Cascade or Centennial. If you do experiment with this, let us know how it turns out. I've been thinking of brewing a lawnmower beer with a nice hop kick myself and I'm not sure how I want to hop it yet. Been waffling between Saaz and Chinook.
