[email protected] 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

(300ml Bottle) Was left at home after a house party so not purchased through choice. Taste and aroma of nothing at all really so can not thing of how to describe it, I just know I never want to see/taste it again as it does nothing for me.

Seems to be the chosen beer at a lot of festivals, seems a bit strange that you can’t find it in the shop or at bars/pubs.... probably because it’s just cheap sh*te that tastes like fox p*ss!

[330ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Clear gold, thin lacing around the glass. Not much aroma – faint, slightly vegetal sweetness. Doesn’t really taste of much either – a sweet weakness. It’s pretty something when you long for the flavour of regular Budweiser. This is pitiful [20062012]

In bottle. Pours a very light blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, sugar and bready yeast. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite sweet overall.

Bottled. A golden beer with a disappearing off white head. Smells of sweetcorn water. Sweet, corny and sickly in the mouth with barely any depth of flavour. Even poorer than expected.

Nov 2010: This beer is brewed for the UK market only (I am lead to believe), God knows where it is actually produced. Clear 300ml bottle, the cap already promised to a BA in the US. ’jermsumm’ gets it in my next package. The brew number is a special one; it means something to a lot of British people, which is obviously why Bud choose 66. When a Brit hears the number 66 it reminds him of different things, depending on age and education. Let me explain: 1066 The Battle of Hastings, where we defeated an invading French army: 1666 The Great Fire of London, 1966 When England won the football World Cup for the first and only time, or the iconic Route 66 from Chicago to LA: However, a number between 65 and 67 is what it’ll mean to most who buy this beer (if they can count that high). I poured the beer into a Hoegaarden Crand Cru stemmed tulip glass to give it some class (this failed to have the desired effect). It looked like a regular lager/pilsner/helles, golden clear, clean and bright. The white head leaving before it had fully arrived, a trait I hate. You’ll not be suprised to hear the beer had very little aroma or taste, in fact it reminded me of fizzy water such was its characterless, gassy, flavourless make-up. Perhaps I’m being unkind here, hey, no I’m not, this beer is terrible to the core (if it had a core to be terrible too). There was a mini hint of sweetness from something, but I couldn’t detect any hop, malt or yeast involvement what-so-ever it this so called brew. Most likely the worst beer I’ve ever reviewed since joining this site. My son-in-law bought me this on his first anniversary of his marriage to my daughter, can’t wait for next years treat!
