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.

Really smooth and flavorful with a nice finish. Would love to see more of the Project 12 beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has the same pour as the others with a bit of sweet grain scent. Taste is a sweet nut in water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was malty musty and lagerish. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of tangy caramel hops and malt. A decent tasty one that I would consider buying again.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 The aroma is somewhat sweet with some herbal hops and rubbing alcohol. The appearance is light caramel color with a medium head that turns to nothing. The taste is like the aroma but not at all boozy. The palate is thin. Overall there is nothing here of substance, almost a drain pour. Thanks to Palidor for the rating anyway!

12 oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a small diminishing white head. The aroma had caramel malt, a touch grainy with some light fruity notes. The flavor is lightly bready, caramel, mild grains, light fruits; overall not bad for what it is.

Lager glass. Clear apple juice appearance with minimal head but plenty of carbonation. Very light smell of wheat and hops, I didn’t get the caramel. Light wheat taste that goes down smooth. A mediocre beer.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Crisp amber coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol and a hint of caramel - not much going on at all. Light-bodied; Creamy alcohol flavour with a hint of caramel and toffee with a mealy earthy flavour and not much else. Aftertaste shows some oak and perhaps a light grassiness, but not much more than caramel and cardboardie malt. Overall, a pretty disapointing beer, but that was to be expected - not much going on here and nothing worthwhile to search out for. Nice to sample as I’ve never seen this before, but not a great beer of course. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-December-2012 for US$0.98 sampled at home in Washington on 20-December-2012.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Clear, orange-gold. Twist-off US longneck, utilitarian label. Aroma is lightly sweet, and reminded me a bit of pecans and maple. Fresh, tangy, a little toffee, nutty sweetness. A little, off, sulphur in the tangy finish. Medium body. Meh. Out of the mixpack that I had, the 23185 wins. Picked this little baby up as part of a mixpack at the ABC Likkas @ Bull Run in Tallahassee.

Bottle from Walmart. Crystal clear light amber in color. Lightly sweet malty nose. Flavor is malty and a little sweet. Light roast and a hint of hops. Fairly light on taste, but not bad.

BrewBoxer (1764) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle. Amber color. Head that fades quick. Taste is crisp and malty with a slight watery tasty feel. Not bad for the AB, but still eh...I was rooting for it
