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.

Bottle. Pale lager? Wouldn?t say so. Pours a light amber. Corn and grass notes. Really no different than bud.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Pours dark gold color with small white head very bubbly. Aroma is light caramel and grain. Taste is cereal, dry grassy notes with mild sweetness. Dry finish. Not that great but its pretty good for a bud.

BlowOffTube (438) - Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Can’t really tell the difference between this and bud light other than a little sweeter flavor. I don’t understand the black crown, oh well. Taste is like bud light but a little sweeter and higher alcohol.

Gription79 (2235) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is the 4% version made for Utah. The aroma is faint caramel/bready malts, the Budweiser acetaldehyde is also noticeable. The tastes is soft bready malts, fruity/apple character, hint of caramel malty sweetness. Very thin body. This thing is lifeless. Footbalmed due to lack of interest.

Bottle. Caramel color with a pretty dense head. Hay, sugar and citrus. Really clean.

Corn, artificially sweetened malt, surprisingly not stale. Not black...? Tastes like shitty nightclub sponsorship.

Metalchopz (2208) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
12-pack from the States purchased by my guitarist, Pete K. Pours a clean amber colour with a nice creamy, off-white head, that has decent retention and creamy lacing all-around. Sweet nose with caramel malts and very light hops. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. The taste has the caramel malts, but very watered-down and not really sweet. More on the chemical-side of things with whatever hops they use. Was better from the bottle, and real cold. Still, probably the best product with the Budweiser name on it.

EdInSaltLake (589) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Light caramel, bready aroma. Sweet, light caramel malt flavor, with more lingering sweetness. A little macro vegetal aroma and flavor. (6% version)

Beerathon (1106) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Light orange in color with good clarity. Nearly no head. Soft carbonation. A bit too sweet for me. Would have liked a bigger hop bill. Better than regular Budweiser though.

Pours dark amber color with a wild honey aroma. Taste is like a strong Bud. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
