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.

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

Bud’s "Brewmasters" didn’t deliver too much with their attempt at a more quality brew. Tasted like a heavier Bud, which is exactly what it is. Pretty lame, and sad that some people consider this quality.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Despite it's inevitable imperfections, I would call this my go-to macro beer, a safe restaurant default when Miller, Coors, and Bud are all that's on the menu. My favorite in the budweiser family on that note. Pours an amber copper color with decent lacing, features a solid taste and relatively full body with mild bitterness. No hoppiness but a toasted caramel malt taste that has a pleasing tangy finish. Decent character for a macro, not a craft beer by any means but is good enough to avoid diving to the adjunct pale lagers when on a budget or the options are limited.

I was really hoping that this would be something delicious but it is just a sub par beer that is made for the masses.
