Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle at a house party in London. Pours clear, light gold with a fizzy, white head. Cereal grain aroma. I should note, this beer was served well below the optimal temperature, that ice-cold temperature whereby your senses are numbed by the coldness and the offensiveness of the beer is lessened. My senses were all too acute during this drinking. It tasted like artifically sweet cereal/malt water. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly sweet finish, basically no bitterness, some sweet bread, cereal, mild grain. Really not good. (I’ll rate this again if it ever pops up cold at another house party, but I sure ain’t gonna pay for it.)

harrisoni (19165) - 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.

TBone (18025) - 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.

Desverger (12543) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2012
(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.

ManVsBeer (10927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Light golden coloured clear lager. Holds little taste but not the worst body which is fairly crisp.

leaparsons (10699) - Wigston, 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.

maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2012
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.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2010
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.
