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.

seymour (1827) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Tasted from brown bottle into a Willybecher glass. It poured a light amber color, a deeper hue than regular Budweiser but definitely not "Dark Lager", with fluffy white foam, long-lasting with a surprising amount of lace. Think regular mass-produced adjunct light lager plus some caramelly, fruity nuances and slightly elevated hop aromas. It was the most drinkable and harmonious of the three I’ve tasted, but still not a great beer overall. Seemed like a really watered-down Oktoberfest. I also reluctantly admit it did not turn revolting after warming for a few minutes in the glass, as with most Budweiser products.

Why do they even bother? Another crap beer from Budweiser - tasteless and completely lacking in any notable characteristic.

Capa (2556) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Just a bit of orange in the color and a small head. Lightly sweet aroma of malt and fruit. Thin, smooth body. Flavor is light but its lightly sweet malts, a bit of fruit and little else. Dull but I can't say it's bad. Just very, very dull.

Maltser85 (358) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JAN 6, 2013
The beer pours a nice amber color. Lots of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Nice eggshell colored head that dissipates quickly. The nose is reminiscent of caramel, wet cardboard, a slight biscuit note and the classic banana esther that comes from the Budweiser lager yeast. Taste is mostly the same. It is basically a Budweiser with a bit more caramel flavor.

Onslow (1351) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Pale amber brew with white head. Slight aroma of sweeter malt and faint hops. Taste is like Budweiser but with a little nutty sweetness. Very little. Clean and inoffensive. This beer is van nuys... er, very nice...

Nice smooth beer with hardly any after taste easy on the palette and great 6.0% with acknowledge/vol levels if it had a name may drink more of it
