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.

Bière cuivrée, brillante, limpide, effervescente et peu mousseuse. Le nez est légèrement caramélisé avec beaucoup de céréales. On est dans l’champs! En bouche, c’est malté, un peu fruité (banane) avec une touche quelconque de caramel. Bof!

Bottle, 22oz. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is sweetish and lightly fruity, rather uninspired. The flavor pretty much the same, fruity and lightly sweetish, a faint bitterness chiming in. Short finish. Most definitely not worth a revisit. 130811

A smooth easy drinking lager, with subtle hints of fruit. A nice attempt of a mainstream brewery to appeal to craft beer appreciators. I would drink again and is a good session beer.

I was so psyched up for this beer when I saw all the commercials around Super Bowl time for it, and as soon as I tried it, I was hooked on Black Crown. This is my go-to beer at the bar just because it has a rich taste and I love to savor every drop of it while I’m chatting and dancing with friends.

12 ounce bottle at $6.99 per 6-pack at local supermarket. Not bad for a Budweiser.

I thought maybe I was getting something better than the mass produced Anheuser-Busch/InBev. It looked better due to it’s amber color and a little lacing. It also had more alcohol (6%) which I thought would separate it from Budweiser. It didn’t! It had that sickening Bud smell and tasted bland. Where’s 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 can’t find it. I wish the swill would go away!

It’s 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. It’s potable.
