COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a blend of two-row caramel malt and four types of domestic hops, Budweiser Black Crown is finished on a bed of Beechwood chips for a smooth, balanced taste. Incorporating the proprietary yeast directly descended from the original Budweiser yeast strain used by Adolphus Busch in 1876, Budweiser Black Crown retains the key characteristics of Budweiser with its clean taste and high drinkability. Featuring more body, color and hop character than the flagship lager, it also has a slightly higher alcohol content at 6% ABV.

À la couleur de la bière, on voit déjà une différence avec la Bud traditionnelle, elle est plus dorée. Pour l’odeur, j’abonde du côté de Philippe Wouters qui disait sur Capsules Bière qu’elle a un nez de banane. Mais c’est plutôt un mixte d’odeur de maïs et de banane, c’est weird. Au goût la banane est encore un peu présente, mais elle se fait supplanter par le goût de maïs. Elle a une finale très sucrée. Je dois avouer que ce n’est pas une si mauvaise bière. On va s’entendre pour dire que ça reste une Bud, mais elle a quand même bon goût. Si cette bière peut amener des amateurs de Bud régulière à goûter des bières plus goûteuses, à expérimenter avec les bières et bien ça serait déjà ça de gagner!

Pours amber with a small white ring. Aroma is cereal grains and sweet light caramel. Taste is bland, non offensive, nicely carbonated and some caramel.

Super light on the hops, but at least I can taste some. Light cara malts, on the sweet side too. Relatively refreshing. Light bready finish. Not horrible, much better than regular bud.

ContemplateBeer (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Aroma: Mostly caramel overall, pretty clean and simple but nothing in terms of hop presence. Appearance: Light copper with a sustained, foamy white head. Flavor: Caramel, some light toast and even a touch of apple; the finish has a slight odd tang when cool but that went away as the beer warmed. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Mostly drinkable if not a little flawed; one could certainly do worse in a pinch.

czar (4159) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
pours clear amber-orange with a decent off-white head, some retention and lacing. nutty caramel, toasted wild rice, fruity - peaches, grass, some sweetness, faint to no woodsy notes. moderate carbonation, light body - fairly oily, velvety, short and a bit sweet grassy-herbal finish. o-k.

Bottle. A Little more potent than most beers. Good taste with a little bit of a bite.

Tap at TOFB, pours a bright yellow, a clean and crisp lager, overall pretty refreshing better then regular bud for me.

cannette 355 ml. 6%. Cuoleur ambrée, mousse blanche mince. Arôme de malt, un peu de caramel et une touche d’herbe. En bouche, céréales, douceur de caramel, un peu aqueuse, notes d’alcool. Comme ils disent effectivement il y a plus de corps, de couleur et de houblon que dans la Bud normale. Ça veut pas dire que c’est un grand cru.

DrSilverworm (6039) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Born on 28/May/13. Totally clear, kind of orange color. Thin bit of white head, few dots and short reaches of lace. Medium body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky finish. Better flavor than expected... Still some corn flavor, macro-lager type taste, but a nice caramel malt and toasty aroma too. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, a subdued bite. It’s later at night and I went for a Budweiser so that I wouldn’t be tempted to go for another subsequent beer. But this is actually not nearly as bad as expected, at least from this nonic pint glass in the peaceful comfort of my home. I opened it up figuring I’d half-ass a rate from the ~5oz I could stomach and call it a night, but I ended up finishing this whole bottle without much trouble... Maybe I’m underestimating myself.

341 ml bottle from the lcbo. Pours amber with a white head the reduces quickly. Light cara malt nose. Pretty clean. On the sweet side of balanced. Light hop flavour. Crushable but very simple and light in flavour. Meh, would drink all black crown offered.
