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

Better than a Bud Light by a landslide, but still an American Lager and one that doesn’t come close to what I would consider "craft" beer. Just a step ahead of the typical Bud corny, grainy, watery qualities with a bit more smoothness and drinkability. Only drink after a really hot/sweaty outing or exercise.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle date 31JAN13. Poured amber with a quick off-white head. Very subdue to nonexistent aroma and flavor. Light body and a hint of a malt aftertaste. Bud will always be bud no matter what they try.

DiarmaidBHK (3527) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle from Jessup plaza. Pours khaki with an Light brown foam. Not much on the nose except for a slight maltiness. Smooth on the tongue but not particularly flavorful. Very thin on the tongue I’m not sure Budweiser understands the whole craft beer thing.

12 oz from a six pack bought from a neighborhood mom and pop store. This has the best possible chance of getting good marks from me..just back from the beach..thirsty and very very hot..so here goes. Pours a slightly darker yellow colour but not much,head seems thicker and lasts longer than the usual Bud, Aroma, cardboard,bread and caramel,slight bourbon/wood. Not bad. Smooth malty,caramel,again the woody tones that remind me of bourbon.Slight grassy hop in the end. Palate is pretty good for the style and maker. Not a bad little lager really far better than regular Bud.

Bottle. Pours a light golden. decent sized head that quickly dissipated. Mild grainy aroma. Very smooth. Flavor is of filtered water with a touch of caramel. Goes down easier then most macros. Given the choice between this and regular Bud I’d pick this hands down. That doesn’t make it great by any means, but it is drinkable. Non offensive like bottled water.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle. Dark gold, white head. Sweet corny watery mess. It amazes me how a brewery can so consistently and deliberately churn out utter garbage. Well done.

Strykzone (5063) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bomber. This is a little darker than golden but not a lot. It has a fairly big off white head that dies a fizzy sounding death. A grainy malted aroma is not big. I taste malts more than anything and they are pale. There is a bit of spice, corn, and grass. Hops are scarce. This is rather sweet. So, this was not great.
