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.

Pre-warning: I normally do not drink Budweiser, so this review may be skewed. Poured form bottle, into a pint glass. Pours a nice clear gold color, with a initial thick white head. Still bubbling from the bottom awhile after initial pour. Some light lacing on the glass. Slight bready aroma, not much else. Light bready flavor, not much else too it. They could have done a lot more with it. Very sessionable. Average carbonation that leaves the palate cleanly with no lingering taste or feeling. Overall, about what I expected from Budweiser: light amber with very little taste and no aroma. Iíd easily drink it over Budweiser or Bud Lite, so I guess itís a step forward for them.

Pours clear, watery orange with a solid short white head. Minimal retention and lace. Light sweet grainy aroma with a faint peppery bitterness. Same goes for the flavor. Has a slight metallic note. Beechwood aging? Light-plus body, light-sticky texture, good carbonation, and a short finish. For what itís worth, this is the best Bud iíve had to date.

Bomber: Aroma is lightly sweet, maybe a little bit of hops, and lightly earthy. Appearance is a clear golden color with a white head that doesnít stick around for long. Taste is not that bad, Itís like they mixed Budweiser with a very weak amber. Palate is clean and clear with a note of the light hop texture. Overall, Meh...Itís just kind of... there, Cheer!

So, Bud Light has Bud Light Platinum. I guess Budweiser has Black Crown. Fair enough.

Essentially this is just a heavier bud. I guess it would be better to drink to get drunk because its 6%. Not a sip and enjoy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (14038) - San Leandro, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Amber colored pour with a white head. Sweet bread, banana, yeast, a bit of water, and some grain. Light apple and metallic notes, some slight tartness, too. Flavor has a surprising amount of banana, which is nice. Toasted malt, bread, and yeast. Lightly metallic and tart on the finish.

djd07 (6612) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with paperthin head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a watery malt and light caramel. Not much going on with this one.

Finhead (1431) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Clear, deep gold pour with a white head. The aroma is mostly sugary caramel. It has a light body with crisp texture and lively carbonation. The taste is sweet from start to finish.
Earlier Rating: 11/5/2012 Total Score: 3.2
Clear, amber pour with a slightly off-white head. The aroma has sweet caramel and bread. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste begins and ends sweet with a little hop bitterness in between. A decent effort on this one.

The color of this beer is a shade or two darker than Budweiser. It heads well. The aroma is full of the beech wood. The malt is dominated by caramel malt, but is a bit thin. Little to no discernable hop characteristic. A smooth brew.
