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.

Okay, well its drinkable, but not really good. still some adjunct taste coming through and a malt likka type flavor which some may say helps.

Not bad. Better than regular Bud. I know a lot of people donít like American Style Pilsner, but I happen to find them quite pleasant if done correctly.

I bought as batch 91406 but was told its the same thing as Black Crown? Oh well. Amber in colour. White top. Smells like fruit cake. Has some fruitcake tastes to it also, but only i may be able to taste these because my grandmas fruitcake was kinda shittay. Much love to Grams, little love to this beer.

Darker than normal bud. Somewhat sweeter and a little toasted. Itís really nothing special, but itís much better that their usual filth. At least this might qualify as some sort of legitimate effort.

Effervescent. I commend Bud for trying to improve their beer. Worth a couple tries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle - $1.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Born On Date - 04JAN13

Appearance: Pours out a golden-amber body with crystalline clarity and a white fizzly head that evaporates in seconds.

Smell: Toasted malts (though, if, like, letís say toastiness went from a level of 1 to 10, itíd be at 1), some clear corn syrup, a hint of white pepper, and a curious hint of faux banana.

Taste: Minutely toasty, meager pale malts with a little drip of corn sugar sweetness. A sustained tone of the initial sweetness, with a little peppery hint that blips onto the radar and is instantly gone. Sweetish finish with that same touch of thin, thin maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Iíd hoped for and would have appreciated something at least tolerable. It was a little less than that.
