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.”

Budweiser Brew No. 66 is a 4% alcohol by volume lager that is brewed and distributed in the United Kingdom by InBev UK Limited. Launched in July 2010, Budweiser 66 is the newest member of the Budweiser family of beers with 84 calories in a 300 ml serving (just over 10 oz).

leaparsons (9100) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle. Pale gold with a thin foam. Aromas are cereal with hints of lemon and caramel. Clean and without corn. Flavours are sweet grain and caramel with just hints of corn. Watery but not terrible.

stravale (2567) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 29, 2011
300ml Morrisons - clear glass bottle.
Appearance Clear, very light straw. White gassy head.
Aroma Skunky.
Taste Sweet with skunk.
Palate Lower carbonation than standard Bud.
Overall I had it warm - ice cold it would be more tolerable, but I had to throw this away. It’s still a very poor, tasteless beer through.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2011
Four pack of 33cl bottles purchased from my local Asda as recommended by MagicDave6. Now Tom and I share a love of easy drinking lager and this is without doubt easy to drink. Much better straight from the bottle from the freezer because if you pour it into a glass the faults start appearing. But I do like the low carbonation. So easy to swig. On a hot day to replace lost fluids this is perfect. There is even some light lemony hop to keep the tastebuds interested on the finish. Aroma of gray gas very light in the malts in the mouth good finish. I drank all 4 bottles with no problem.

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2011
300ml bottle. Boring, but better than a standard Bud. Straw coloured with a creamy white head; soft texture with low carbonation; grassy hop aroma; smooth and mellow flavour; sweetish finish with just a hint of cardboard. Refreshing.

SilkTork (5450) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle. Easy drinking with a light citrus note. There’s not a lot going for this, but it’s drinkable and inoffensive, and with the low abv and low fizz, I can see it appealing to a fair few people. It’s thirst quenching enough. It has some of the taste of the regular Bud (much be the beech chips?), but is slightly more pleasant.

dynamiteninja (1694) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Caramel, malt, hops. Bittersweet. Dry finish. Smooth drinking. Better than regular Budweiser.

undercurrent25 (1696) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Bought as Budweiser Brew No 66, this is a piss poor beer, poured into a glass it’s pale yellow with no head, no aroma and no real taste, designed to be drunk by idiots me thinks

kwik-lime (1555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2011
Flat, pouring with almost no head. Watery palate with a chemical aftertaste of grain and corn, essentially a worse version of Budweiser. Monumentally awful.

TBone (14782) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2011
Can brewed by InBev UK "Budweiser Brew No. ’66’", ABV 4.0%
Bought from London, some cornershop. Pale yellow color, vanishing head. Sweet malty, perfumic aroma with hints of green apples. Low carbonation. Lots of green apples in the flavor, a bit harsh-grainy finish. Tastes like a mass cider.

Bullit (4285) - Burgos, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2011
