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.

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.

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.

12 fl oz bottle. 50857. 17/Jun/13. (Anheuser-Busch Brewery Gift Shop) St Louis, MO.
Clear pale golden colour with a small frothy white head. The aroma is weak. There’s some malt and sweetness. The flavour is malt, even mild yeast and sweetness. Bland. Blah...

Spab (2755) - 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 (498) - 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 (2882) - 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 (3810) - 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.
