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.

BucannonXC5 (855) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2012
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Dec. 5, 2012 (purchased the 12-pack for $12.99 at the 7/11 near Allied Gardens (San Diego) on Dec. 4, 2012. Caramel amber with about a finger of gray head that disappeared very fast. No retention on the top or sides. Smelled caramel, toffee, roasty nuts and a bit of bitter chocolate malts. Had to work for it though. Tasted not too much like the smell. Got a sharp whiff of alcohol up front and a bubble of carbonation that gradually built up to a malty finish. Got slight caramel but nothing too special. Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Lively (above average)-to-fizzy (good) carbonation. Abrupt finish. Not a bad effort, but the Williamsburg (23185) batch was the best in my opinion. I’d have this one close to the St. Louis (63118).

It poured a light amber color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was of grain and light sour notes. The taste was of very little flavor, with a hint of sweet vanilla notes, doughy yeast, sour grain and some water. Just ok.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Pours a clear copper with a half finger of off-white head that settles quickly, almost no lacing. Aroma is very mild, sweet, fruity, wheat. Flavor is sweet wheat and bread up front fading into mild malt and fruit tones, apple. Moderate carbonation and very light body. Super smooth, light mouthfeel, drinkable, but underwhelming flavor. An average beer.

pours clear, medium amber with a short, slightly off-white head. Scent is caramel and malt. Taste is caramel, corn, malt. A slight spicyness....apple, maybe. Over-sweet and under-balanced..... Again, not that great,

If you told me that Batch 91406 was a throwback recipe of Budweiser I’d believe you. Light bodied, few shades darker, a bit more alcohol and flavor then the current recipe of Budweiser. Woodiness from Beechwood chips comes through in the flavor. I picked up a case for $19 to serve to macro drinking guests over the Holiday Season. I foresee them liking this beer.

brenn79 (1521) - Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours clear light amber with a one finger head that is reducing quickly leaving a collar. Aroma is almost nonexistent, a little spicy pepper, and caramel malt. The taste is caramel malt, minerals, thin, watery, drinkable. Body is paper thin, carbonation is high. This isn’t bad, but really boring, they could have done better with this pack of beers, but it is Budweiser.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours clear golden amber with white head and spotty lacing, aroma is of slight caramel with a little bit of malt, the flavor has a light amount of malt on the front end with a finish of grain, not digging this one.
