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.

Spab (2261) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
341 ml bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a clear orange colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is toasty grains and hints of caramel. Flavour is likewise with caramel a little more prominent. Only the faintest hint of a dry finish. On the lifeless side. For Bud it’s not bad; for real beer it’s underwhelming.

kidobutai (293) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Light amber with an almost non- existent head. No aroma, but a smoothe drink and pleasant flavor v with no bitterness. If I had to drink a Budwiser product, it would be Black Crown.

pintbypint (2542) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
341ml brown bottle. Medium golden pour with a thin white cap. Nose is fairly clean and neutral, bit of grain and sweetness. Taste is toasty and grainy. Pliant finish with some grains and distant hop. Average mouthfeel, carbonation is pretty standard, ends dry. Overall better than normal bottles Bud. Overall ok, if I’m ever craving a lightly maltier, darker and stronger version of Bud, I’ll be sure to reach for this.

zach8270 (3370) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold pour with a soapy white head. Very faint and almost nonexistent aroma. Maybe a touch of sweet malts but that’s about it. Overly sweet and malty and then moves quickly to a strange bitter bite at the end. Not much else to the flavor. No depth.

tambrico (50) - New York, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Poured this into the same glass as I had previously had my Schnieder Weisse original in. Couldn’t smell this beer at all, it smelled like the Schneider Weisse. Pours a light amber with a decent head. You can taste the adjunct right away. Taste of sweetness. You can taste the caramel malts they claim. No bitterness at all. No complexity. No development of flavor. It’s easy to drink but I wouldn’t consider that "drinkable". I found it so boring that I was forgetting to drink it! Meanwhile I was upset that I drank the Schnieder Weisse too fast.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle. 6%. Plain, flavourless, clear yellow fizz. All budweiser is beechwood finished, so this beer has no additional claim to fame other than the higher abv. Same adjuncty (rice) feel of normal Budweiser, not much else is new.Great for NASCAR fans in 40+ weather. Not much use otherwise.

Luvystypotables (532) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Doughy yeasty nose, dark golden colour. Taste and palate are sadly disappointing. Metallic slightly bitter taste. Weak almost non existent palate with a hint of aluminum.

Poured from a cold bottle. Clear golden color, large white frothy head. Wet towel hops smell. Smooth butter flavor.

EtTuCthulhu (992) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2013
This beer smells overwhelmingly like dough yeast and slightly of caramel malts, and the color is a slightly dark orange with a bubbly texture and a large white head that fades rapidly. The taste is slightly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, lively carbonation, slick texture, and a long, sour finish.

Strangebrewer (833) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
bottle. Poured clear copper with a thin diminishing head. Sweet light malt aroma. Crisp and light body with a slightly dry finish. Flavour of bready malt, light caramel notes, a touch metallic.
