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.

I thought maybe I was getting something better than the mass produced Anheuser-Busch/InBev. It looked better due to itís amber color and a little lacing. It also had more alcohol (6%) which I thought would separate it from Budweiser. It didnít! It had that sickening Bud smell and tasted bland. Whereís the HOPS? I also hate how Anheuser-Busch takes up the majority of the space in the beer coolers in my grocery stores. They purposely load it up with their low selling beers, just so those of us who like REAL beer canít find it. I wish the swill would go away!

Itís better than ordinary Budweiser, and has more alcohol, but still lacks flavor. The presence of visible Belgian lace is a departure from the usual A-B product. Itís potable.

I has more of an aroma than regular Budweiser, but thatís not saying much. It has a better color than regular Budweiser, but you could throw up Budweiser and the bile would give it a better color. Otherwise, itís regular Budweiser.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Golden-beige with puffy, off-white head. Crisp hop nose, the lively cool of air somewhere between where fall and winter meet. The body is sticky caramel and beachwood. Thin and cloying. Could use more hop bitterness as this one is tastes a bit like unhopped, unfermented wort. Too much cereal not enough hop.

Perhaps Budweisersí best brew. It is still crappy, but an acceptable level of crappy. Itís more like an amber-like lager and pairs fairly well with restaurant food.

Very little aroma. Thin orange color, fairly robust white head that thins rapidly. Tastes very sweet, almost like candy. Medium mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Overall a pleasant if somewhat sweet but drinkable commercial beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bud with the slightest craft touch. Amber hints in coloring and a little more hoppy. Overall the same with a liitle more umph.

Pours a light amber. Has a typical lager aroma like Bud. Taste is a little more distinct unlike regular bud with some amber ale elements.

(12 oz bottle, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of cardboard, grain, and caramel. Flavor of grain, cardboard, caramel, and earth. Tastes so black.

From bottle...Iím guessing this is right...Batch #91406 Poured in small Duvel glass. Big head with lace and a gold color. Aroma of grains, rice pudding, honey, orange peel. Modest carbonation and mouth feel. Flavors of light malt, powder sugar, wheat grains, amber malt, light caramel, slight hops. Overall refreshing, sweet, easy drinking with minimal malt or hops. While I was less impressed with some of the others in this series and with Bud in general, this really isnít bad for the style....maybe just the handling if the beers in this zip code series are nearly the same...or maybe it is different.
