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.

This is not a terrible beer. Pours a very light amber in color, high carbonation is noticeable however the head is thin and dissipates quickly. The nose is slightly grassy with a bit of lager-like esters. Once in the mouth there is a noticeable sweetness that is not caramel-malt but rather a cidery sweetness reminiscent of table sugar. A noticeable "Budweiser" lager yeast taste finishes the palate as the over-carbonation quickly dries out any iota of a finishing note. It leaves behind a very unnatural and chemical-like sweetness bordering on medicinal on the palate. The four types of domestic hops are really unidentifiable and primarily a reason to market this beer differently. Iíd like to try this head to head with the original Budweiser.

12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Born on Jan 08, 2013. A - Pours a golden amber body. One finger of white foam dissipates quickly leaving behind zero head. S - Sweet corn, touch of malt. Not sure what else, just predominantly sweet. T - Again with the sweet corn. Finishes nearly dry with a lingering stale bready malt flavor. Not bad actually. M - Thin but spritzy. O - Not as bad as I was expecting. An improvement over standard Bud and the Platinum, but I wonít be buying this again.

Amber color, no head to speak of. No aroma. Average taste. Descent session beer if you want a higher ABV content without tasting anything. Wont have again

Thank God for build your own six packs so I didnít have to buy a full six bottles of this. Pretty much the same as everything else bud offers. Complete middle of the road beer; not horrible, not great but way too overpriced for what it is.

Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent amber with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes slightly foughy and malty with a slight beechwood taste. Average on the palate. My expectations were exceeded.

pours clear amber with fizzy off-white head. Faint fruity aroma. Flavor of sweet sweet malt, roasted caramel, a little alcohol and finishes with bitter hops. Watery on the palate. Not bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sour and tangy industrial lager with a yeasty undertone. The flavor was tangy sour industrial lager though with a more smoothly blended flavor and lacing the chemical presence found in many of the style. Short tangy finish. Medium body. Better than regular Budweiser but still not good.

4% version. Pours a nice clear golden color with a large white head. A light sweet grainy nose. A very smooth flavor of earthy grains, cola-like carbonation, light wood. Iíd like to try the 6% version as well. Very clean and decent.
