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.

Pours an amber color with a medium white head with light lacing. Smells of caramel and light malts. Tastes or caramel, light malt and hops and a light wood flavor from the beachwood. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall this was a decent lager from inbev

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 12273-WA95. The pour is a medium amber with no head. The aroma is rather bland with no outstanding characteristics beyond grains and crisp hops. The body is medium but smooth. The taste is also fairly grainy and slightly dry. Nothing out of the ordinary.

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 20, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker gold with a two inch head. Taste of malt, wood, caramel and some warming alcohol. Similar, clean aroma. The body is on the lighter side, with a clean finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable, but the less likeable of the three.

marcus (6343) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Pours light amber with a huge off-white head and a standard skunky Bud aroma. There is a light malt flavor with a hint of hop bitterness.

Aroma is mild grain sweetness and a hint of fruit. The flavor is fruit/citrus, malts and a small hint of hops in the finish. Passable.

sawbuck (297) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Faint aroma of cereal and malt. Crystal clear light amber. Sweet malt is the initial flavor. Very basic...finishes with tiny bit of bitterness, but with no complexity.

johnnnniee (2189) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a deep golden amber color with a quickly dissipating off white head. The aroma is sweet and malty with a grainy honey like caramel nose. I found little to no hop aroma. The flavor is sweet and does have a bit of caramel and light sugar in there. There’s just enough spicy hops to keep this from cloying and to keep inbev from spending any more money on hops than is absolutely necessary. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet almost sugary mouthfeel. Too sweet and a bit boring.

damzz (249) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 17, 2012
12 oz bottle in the 12 pack. Pours a burnt gold with a white head. The nose is light caramel. The palate is caramel and malt. Rather wished AB had out out a 12 pack with all the beers in the program. The 8 hop beers are intriguing in a Bud heritage beer.

Booo. This is made by AB so it sucks. Right? Amber pour. Caramel and slight bourbon flavors. Nice one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle 12/13/12 12pk(Dominicks)-43° in Lager Glass-Pours a light amber with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and melt. Taste of the same with a bit more malt and caramel. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but not kick butt either.
