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.

Rating in my hotel room, 22 oz bottle. Pours slightly more amber than regular bud. Nose of corn, metal, grass. Taste is same. Body is more full. This is exactly Natty Daddy Light.

This would be Bud Heavy. A little stronger and sweeter than your average American Macro-brew but that’s it. A real disappointment to me. No hoppy notes or malty notes. It is a domestic brew through and through.

OOooOOOooo weee - something new from Anheuser Busch! Could hardly wait to get the cap off of this baby. Nice brass pour, and a mild, but better than expected aroma. It tastes like a slightly stronger, sweeter version of the "king of beers."

Poured and nice orange amber colour with some initial white head but quickly dissipated into its recommended lager glass. The flavor is a refreshingly caramely some candy some pastryish malt but medium to thin body....some characteristic macro tinnyness or mineralness also present.....prob better then other AB attempts at dark beer. Id have it again.

This beer actually is not that bad. It’s one of bud’s best accomplishments. Keep it coming!

Dark in color clear with a thin head. Nice lager flavors a tad more rich with the dark malts. Nice flavors. A super hot day lawnmower beer.

This is what their flagship should have tasted like all these years. However they need to quit with this "drinkability" nonsense. Who are they targeting with these new "craft" beers? If theyre trying to win over the beer geeks then they will fail to impress. If theyre trying to get the average beer drinker to open their palates up then this is a good beer to start. This beer has a score potential of at least 3...possibly higher with just a few more tweaks in the flavour direction. Drop the drinkability crap and just let the flavours shine. Overall I like it...certainly dont love it but its okay.

This was better than I was expecting. No hop presence but you can taste the malts. Still has a lot of adjunct flavor though

Black crown just has a bad taste. I guess if it’s all you have then it will do. Try something else
