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.

Draft on tap at the Anheuser Busch Brewery (St. Louis, MO). Pours a deeper amber golden hue, deeper copper glow with lively carbonation and a frothy whitish head atop. Decent stick around and lacing. Aromas are a bit bready, gentle yeastiness with touches of biscuit, crusty bread and growing yeastiness. Grainy, a bit cereal, smooth. Initial is fuzzy and lighter end of medium bodied, some graininess, a bit of green apple, touches of straw. Middle is a touch sweet, faint tart bite with straw, grainy malts and bread. Some yeastiness, fresh and cool grainy malts. A touch of bread, gentle fruit, that green apple hint keeps coming back. Finish is a bit yeasty, dry, faint aspirin. Ok, I guess. Looks nice.

On tap at the Biergarten. Pours a clear gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has light grain and and biscuit but a bit thin overall. Flavor is light grass, straw and light grain with a thin finish.

Can from the LCBO. A dark amber with hints of sun shining through. Has a frothy white head which lasts a while. Nose is mostly sugary, with toasty and roasted malts, caramel. Sweet(caramel) with little residual bitterness on the sides of tongue. Fruity finish leaves a little bitterness. Id happily drink this if it was an offering at a family function.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Tasted on 6/5/14 from a 25oz can purchased at a local gas station. Pours clear, bright orange amber with an average, fizzy off-white head that disappears fairly quickly. The nose is corny malt with a touch more caramel than the average pale lager, but not really much more hop aroma. The flavor is the same, a pale lager with a bit more caramel malt, and just the lightest touch of green hops. The body is medium with fizzy carbonation and a short light caramel and hint of spicy green hops finish.

I wasn’t a fan of this one. I had low expectations from a Budweiser beer, and while it has a little more flavour than a standard Bud, it didn’t have much else going for it.

Really not to bad for the price, better than my expectations forsure, nothing to go crazy about but better than original bud

Can at LCBO tasting. Gummy, it is malty and in the style but not easy on the palate. NOT TOO DRINKABLE. ROUGE EDGES.

This is horse piss. Looks like horse piss. Tastes like horse piss. Smells actually not bad. Thats some kind of aromatic "caramel toasted malt" flavoring they added to throw you off. Dont be fooled. This is HORSE PISS. I’d like another though, just to be sure, its messing with me now that the horse piss after taste is gone. For that, I give it a 2.

Can. Pour is light brown. Aroma of sweet fruits, caramel and maybe some vanilla. Taste is sweet. Poor amber.

Not my first choice, but I can drink it, I really enjoy the smell, just the taste leaves a lot to be desired to me. I would much rather pay less money and just get regular old Bud or maybe a different brand all together...
