1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
300ml Morrisons - clear glass bottle.
Appearance Clear, very light straw. White gassy head.
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.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Flat, pouring with almost no head. Watery palate with a chemical aftertaste of grain and corn, essentially a worse version of Budweiser. Monumentally awful.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 "Brew No. 66", 4% ABV, brewed in the UK- assuming this is just a re-branding of the 4 targeted at the English drinker. Bottle poured reverentially into a tulip.. Vapid yellow with an ephemeral burn of fizz despite the ’low carbonation’ claims, a low head dissipating instantly- not a beer designed to be poured, or looked at. Or inhaled for that matter; aroma white flour, almond, solvent and matchbox ’strike pad’ (phosphorous). Flavour can’t fail to be an improvement on that: rubber, lime and dissolvable painkillers followed by a lingering basmati rice-type creaminess I don’t find unpleasant, and that fairly accurately mimics the flavour of malt. Refreshing- if you don’t look at it, sniff it or taste it.
