Believed to be produced at Samlesbury but it’s not possible to be certain - unfortunately, AB InBev doesn’t seem to consider it important to provide consumers with full information on all their brands, or their provenance.

“A lightly carbonated lager brewed with a touch of sweetness for a smooth, easy taste at 4% abv, Bud ’66′ is a winning concept. Inspired by the lengths our brewmasters go to create the perfect beer, we named it Budweiser Brew No. 66 after the winning recipe number that had the perfect balance of ingredients creating the taste we know consumers will love.”

Not really a pouring type beer, more of a drink it out the bottle at a BBQ beer. Not a lot on the nose bit earthy with a bit of tortilla chip. Not much to say except it is beer and on a hot day with mates looking for a cheap lager day it does just fine

smells of nothing looks like stale pee tastes thin and watery, flavour of brown sugar mixed in water, bog standard better than some even so!

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 [Bottle at Coast 2 Coast, Stevenage) Although most people love to hate it, I personally have no objections to the standard Budweiser. It?s crisp, clean and easy-drinking (albeit lacking in flavour) and is pretty refreshing on a hot day. I therefore thought a lower abv version would actually be a good idea, as you don?t necessarily want something as strong as a regular bud on a hot day. Unfortunately this was nothing like regular Bud. It pours a pale gold, but the thin white head vanishes almost immediately. There?s a very mild fizz, but this had died by the end leaving the beer flat. The beer is very bland and watery, with little taste other than mild soggy cardboard. It?s rubbish, makes me think of what the bad Sainsbury?s economy lager I tried last year would have been like if I?d have left it open overnight. Oh well, hopefully that will be my sole pale lager over and done with for the year!

Bottle @ home. A peely-wally colour with little aroma. Taste of corn and corn sugars. Not very good really. What did I expect though? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Tesco - Piss yellow, no head. Nose is sweet and grainy. Taste is just sweet. Sickly and sugary. NondeScript palate. Ideal for the BBQ crowd.

Light golden coloured clear lager. Holds little taste but not the worst body which is fairly crisp.

altonbrownd (4590) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle at St. Pancrass station. Golden body with thin to medium head. Nose is corny, hops, some malts. Pretty basic taste of corn and malts. Not much to it. Watery texture. Sweet, dank and funky finish.

Bottle@Bulls Head, Ashby, Leicestershire. Pale golden beer with a light head. The aroma is gently bitter, the flavour is gently bitter with dryness. Overall better than I was expecting, some sweetness but enough dryness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
