From Bottle. Not offensive, but not much of anything really. Pretty much like slightly flavored water. If this replaced Budweiser, you could keep me from complaining as often as I do when I visit my uncultured beer friends. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still complain because there isn’t a lot of flavor, but the two I had eliminated the metallic off-taste I get from their "flagships."

Appearance has a light golden brown color supporting a dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell of the adjuncts within a Bud but also having a sweetness of the malt. Taste has a Budwieser, adjuncty, malt infused sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with fair carbonation. I mainly got this beer do to curiosity, one bottle is all thats needed, no need for a half rack.

Bottle: pours a very light amber color with a large white head. Aromas, sweet corn with a slight earthiness. The flavor is not as boring as bud more of a corn flavor. Enjoyed over all!

12oz bottle thanks to my beer buddy cheap. The bottle I got was the special batch 91406. I did not know this is the Black Crown. Typical Bud brew, maybe a little heavier in the taste. I found this brew not that bad, clean crisp taste. I wouldn’t comparwe it to any micros on the market. It’s AB’s way of trying to get their foot in the micro market.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Pours a nice amber color with a tinge of rust. Single finger of off-white foam that fades fast and leaves little lacing.
Smells of bread and a bit of caramel and some floral hop notes as well as a tad bit of citrus, the hop character is faint however. I keep getting bready/doughy scents, perhaps from the yeast. Picking up a bit of spice as well. Perhaps clove. Nose is surprisingly pleasant.
Taste is medium sweetness in the front, lightly bitter, with a long finish that is both dry and sour in a good way. After all that it leaves a sweet sensation on the roof of my mouth. A surprisingly complex beer for a bud.
This beer had a medium body, sticky, with lively carbonation and again a long finish.
This is actually the project 12 version of the beer. It has been gathering dust in my basement for several months. Five or six maybe. I remember thinking it was terrible when I first tried it and being almost embarrassed for AB. Perhaps the cellaring actually did this beer some good because it is quite tasty now. Not a great beer but a good beer.
