July 2002. Bottle. This is a lager I enjoyed - a neat balance of fruit and bitter, and a satisfying mouthfeel. Enjoyable. [3.0]
Nov, 2004 Bottle. Head to Head with Pilsner Urquell. This is yellow compared to Pilsner’s amber. This has a maltier aroma - sweet cookies. Soft. Flavour vanishes. The hops make a brief appearance and then slip away. Nothing really special happened. The Pilsner is a much more interesting drink. [2.3]
May, 2008 Can at the Prague Marathon pasta party Beer in a can tastes the same no matter where you buy it. I didn’t get this unpasteurised on tap while in Prague - most bars sold Pilsner Urquell or their own brewed stuff. It’s a standard pale lager. I doubt if anyone could pick this out as a Czech brewed lager in a blind test. [2.4]
March, 2014 330ml green bottle, filtered, from Asda. Sweet and murky - like it has been thickened with cornflour or butter. Lacks crisp bite so clogs up the mouth. Not good. [1.9]

This slightly reminded me of a tastier Rolling Rock. This is really not bad, when you want to cleanse your palate in between gourmet beers. Some nice balance of hops and malt, with a bit of sweetness that makes it very easy to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 Straight up pale yellow and there is nothing here that makes this stand out at all. It's like the only way to drink it is to slam it. Otherwise, don't waste your time.

Why do some people insist on using green bottles for their beer. I always approach these beers with apprehension. Anyway, pours with a very light golden color and extreme effervescence that results in a foamy, undulating white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with a hint of malt and lager yeast. Feels refreshing on the palate and gives a clean, astringent mouthfeel. Slightly bitter hop flavors dominate the flavor profile and are met by a light alcohol flavor in the finish. Overall, this is a great Pilsner style beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Very light, straw-colored lager with a small, creamy, white head.
The aroma is of a skunk’s ass with some mild citrus, floral, smoky and corny notes. The flavor is just an all out assault on the palate. It’s too bitter up front and lacks any real malt backbone. Hopped, but not well-hopped. Unpleasantly bitter. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, bitter finish. This wasn’t one of my most memorable drinking experiences. I almost feel violated.

light amber color with a thin white head; fairly typical "green bottle" aroma; the taste is mostly of hops with a medium bitter finish

Clear in color. Slightly hoppy with little hop flavor. Clean and crisp in flavor. Pretty good. I like it. Good beer for a day of football.

Pours clear with little head. Slight hop aroma, but not much more. Clean crisp pils flavor with a little hops and bitterness. Just not enough hops for my liking.

This one wasn't skunked (tried this on several occasions) so I'll have to assume that it was representative of the beer other than some possible freshness loss. Good golden color and a head that lacked a bit of retention. Good maltiness with the proper balaance of bitterness, but not quite as crisp and to the front as the flavor profile of a PU. A good Boh Pils just the same.
