COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pours light amber with a fizzy head. Faint sweet malty notes, grains, light bread, and just a hint of bitterness. Definitely a step or two above Bud Light and Bud Heavy. I could hammer a 12-er of this shit if I needed to.

Crystal clear dark amber. Smell is malted rice and grain. Taste is clean and high in malty goodness. Hops are really taking a backseat to the dark earthy grain flavors. Slight nuttiness. Smooth finish where the wood chips are noticeable. Raised on Budweiser this punched up version is like the adult version. More flavor, alcohol, and color make this a very drinkable brew. Im a huge craft brew fan but if you were to pour this one into a pint glass and serve to a friend they wouldnt think Bud.

12oz bottle. Can I just say this is mediocre and not great and just call it a review. It lacks the horrible corn flavor of regular Budweiser, but that’s about the only improvement. Where is the flavor?

RSRIZZO (1899) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) labeled as Project Twelve - Batch 91406, poured into a Lager Glass at 36°. Color is a deep golden with good carbonation and a small tight white head. Aroma is very lightly roasted malt. It has a light body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is caramel and corn up front giving it a sweetness then a light bitterness in the back. After taste is clean with a some what dry feel. Overall it a very easy drinking brew, much better then regular Bud but still not something I would seek out.

DBob5150 (209) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 9, 2013
A nice rich, deep yellow body with an off white head. The aroma is almost non-exisit. Taste is slightly hoppy, a little flat with a slight alcoholic aftertaste. A little bit better than regular Bud (which I do like), but otherwise nothing earth-shattering.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very clear light amber color with a smallish white head. Nose is rather skunky, I think. Taste is also very bleh - like a bit stronger-tasting Bud. Bleh.

labattslover74 (68) - Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Golden amber color, head dissipates quickly, spicy aroma, smooth taste of malt with caramel and sweet after taste. Definitely better than regular Budweiser, not a craft beer so this is mellow and can be one of those beers you pound down for quantity instead of one you sip for taste and quality, Others have given this a low rating but I am pretty impressed and will keep this brew in my everyday drinker choices.

HonkeyBra (3730) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle. I admit I was somewhat hopeful but . . . now I’m embarrassed. This is just putrid shit from AB. Medium orange pour, barely any head. Aroma like sugar water and touches of caramel malt. Flavor is corn, corn sugar, corn syrup, tons of sweetness, maybe a touch of something other than sweetness. Cardboard? Who knows. There are people out there that this will be the best beer they’ve ever had. That sadness should echo forever.

DocLock (8532) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottles from Capone’s and Wegman’s. Pours copper with minimal head. Nose is faint; some caramel malt and hops. Tastes of caramel malt, finishing hops, and some breadiness. More flavor than regular Bud, but not something worth buying.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Sweet corn-like aroma. Gold color with a white head that dissipated quickly. Very clear. Lots of caramel in the flavor. A hint of spicy hops in the background. Balance is way towards the malty end. No diacetly or fruitiness . Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, its very clean and lagered well, but seems to have too much caramel for the style. The caramel reduces its sessional ability. I would like more balance.
