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.

Pale and sheepish on the inside. THe label is a lie! It looked so tough. This is Budweisers answer to the craft brew? They played it pretty safe. Back to appearance. Just enough color that I know Iím not drinking a corona. has the distinct resemblance of murky agitated mud water. Taste? Copper? Just for a moment. Is that the blood of the weak? Second sip, copper taste gone. Now all I taste is weak. All harshness evaporated. I am now just drinking sparkling spiked grain water. Forgot to smell. Smelt it. tried to. got something in my nose but cannot place its vagueness. Back to drinking now. Iíve come to realize I am drinking beer. I take comfort in that. I suppose the one thing I can about this whole zany experience is that itís palate is nice. They managed to get the right amount of carbonation. But Overall I consider the black crown actually an transparent head garment with little power to wield.

Darker gold and slightly maltier than Bud, aroma is slightly funky, sour musty barnyard. Taste isnít much better not horrible but not great either. mostly malt. More funk on the palate at the finish.

Iím not going to give this the AATPO treatment. What I am going to say is I love my home made beer, I love craft beer, and I also love this beer from AB. I canít and wonít hate this beer just bc itís from a macro.

For a macro, this is surprisingly good. Sweet and palatable, makes a smooth drink with your favorite meal. Quite excellent for a A.B. product. Bud clearly wants to keep its title of King of Beers. Definitely not a Bass ale, but certainly a respectable light-bodied brewskie.

Ugggg lets give this a whirl...... try this since theyír out of new castle. Nice tulip pint glass. Amber body, limted skiff on top. Served so cold there is no aroma...... A long wait later, aroma is still mild, sweet, grainy, a hoppy chem, nothing bad or appealing. Taste is close to the same. Fake, banana, roast malts, chem, weird lightly harsh after taste. Bad beer

Golden pour with a white head. The aroma has a lot of grain and not much else. The flavor is grain, sugar, toffee and a hint of orange. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I think is a great beer. I think if it was made by someone else people would really like it.

Purchased as a single bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear coppery colour with white head that doesnít 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.
