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.

Bendrixian (1166) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Purchased as a single bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear coppery colour with white head that doesn’t last very long. Has a real apple puree aroma, with muted notes of roast, some brown sugar and lageryness. The beer lacks flavour. It has a yeasty banana note and overall this beer is terrible, although better than regular bud.

12oz in Boston. Could be worse. Slightly rich, clear reddish lager. Apple juice. Whiff of Euro ’premium lager’, i.e. heavier malt bill. Sweet, alc swig. clean and mellow, clorny malt, banana yeast. not so tasty

Not that I was expecting much, but this is disappointing. Advertised as though Budweiser just discovered the art of brewing beer, this really just tastes like a regular Bud with a little more pronounced flavor. The problem is, the pronounced flavor is not very good at all. Strong alcohol presence makes it taste more like an 8% abv beer than a 6%. Aroma is stunted and off-putting, smelling like malt liquor. Appearance is enticing with its amber/caramel colour, but the taste is not very good at all - alcoholic sweetness mixes with all the flavors of a standard Budweiser lager, but the alcohol masks the flavor of anything remotely good about this beer. Overall, I FAR prefer regular Budweiser to this.

Couleur bronze avec un bon col de mousse ; céréales (maïs) et sucre (surtout du caramel et du toffee) en nez. Les saveurs sont, en revanche, assez convenues : maïs, sucre cuit, c’est une Budweiser régulière avec un brin plus d’originalité, mais c’est encore très insuffisant pour être le moindrement intéressant. Toujours est-il qu’on salue le geste, qui pourrait mener à une réelle créativité un jour. En attendant, celle-ci est buvable, à défaut d’être d’un quelconque intérêt.

Lagerboy (1322) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
341 ml single bottle, CDN version Budwieser Crown, impulse buy from the Heffley Creek Store. Surprisingly fine looking pour, clear bright copper with a lasting, rocky foamy white head. Looks can be and are deceiving... aroma is muted and foul, tastes like they just added some caramel to their regular king of industrial swill concoction. Perhaps a feeble attempt at being crafty? As bad as this is, it’s still: LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

probstblueribbon (3053) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light amber with a decent off-white froth. Aroma: Earthy caramel notes, a touch herbaceous, kinda sweet malts, a bit of dark dried fruit, bread crust. Palate: Medium body, medium-full carbonation. Flav.: Caramel/toffee, bread crust, a little grassy, herbaceous hops; almost dry with a little bitterness and a light caramel/toffee and bread crust finish.

Not too bad.

This beer is awesome. Looks and tastes great. 6% alcohol content makes this offering from Budweiser even better. Clear, crisp and light -perfect for throwing some back with the boys watching NFL, NHL, BBQ’S whatever!!!!

Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and grain malt with earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium to light body and medium carbonation.

rob6239 (645) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours light gold with very frothy head - overly carbonated. Not much in way of aroma - a bit of dusty earth. Taste is mild, perhaps a touch sweet, but not much there. A step up from normal Budweiser I guess but I still wouldn’t buy this.

Butters (3844) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Golden amber pour with good near white head. Caramelly, but not overly sweet. Malty, with a toasted biscuit note. Kinda reminds me of a watered down, less good tasting killians. Meh. But not horrible.
