Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Budweiser Brew No '66' Confirmed sighting: Budweiser Brew No '66'
Posted: 17:29 Sat 21-Aug-2010. Price: Special offer 2.49 for 4x 300ml bottles. Location: Tesco, Bursledon, Southampton. Nutritional unusualness: 4% ABV.
The manufacturers may have made it "sweeter and less carbonated than standard lagers, claiming the target audience of 'brand-savvy' 20 to 30-year-olds wanted an easy-to-drink lager that didn't leave them feeling bloated", and have implied that this makes it "the iPhone of lagers". But, according to (first-time?) spotter and apparent Budweiser connoisseur, "William": "It's got that Bud Ice flavour about it, but a bit flatter. [I'm] always on the lookout for Bud Ice, this Brew No. 66 looked to fill the spot that Bud Ice may have once filled."

...In less alcoholic alternatives: "gilest" paid 1.30 for these Maynard's Fruit Duos at a garage in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, reporting: "Weird unWine Gums these. Yes they're fruitier, yes they're duo hybrids of flavour merged into a single sweet and actually yes, you can (just) tell the difference between each end when you bite. The red+blacks are lovely, but everything else is a bit never-mind. Hmm." Oh, and Zeddy's recent Swiss sojourn seems to have been partly hydrated by a cocktail of Fanta Mango and 7-Up Grapefruit, prompting the double inquiry: "Have we had Fanta Mango in the UK? I hadn't seen it before and my eldest wanted to try it. Nice and fruity with no artificial sweetners (take note, UK)," plus "Why don't we get Grapefruit 7-Up here!? Kinda like Tang. Sweet yet also tarty."

Comment: Ah, sweet yet also tarty; a little like my good self. Zeddy: I like the idea of Grapefruit 7-Up, but isn't that just Lilt?

And as for Bud 66 - "the iPhone of lagers"? Oh come on guys, that's just lazy marketing and it's not even True. Sounds like the same old sweetened, barely alcoholic chilled-to-freezing-to-mask-the-taste industrial brown pop for the tattooed Kevins in theme pubs.

And yes I'm in a bad mood. The contrived, scripted, appalling X-Factor starts again tonight for the next 100 years. And what great talent did the last series (which only ended last week didn't it?) give us? Jedward?
