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.

Bottle from Rite-Aid: Poured a medium colored amber hue with a thin yet dense foam head. Aroma smells sugary sweet like Nestea iced tea but nowhere near real caramel malts used by micros, however, this beer does smell more appetizing than regular Bud. The drink is well balanced and has a crisp palate but there is a not enough to convince me that the taste of this beer is even close to the competition on the shelves. Nice try InBev.

12 oz. bottle served in a shaker-poured a transparent yellow/orange color with medium carbonation, one finger bubbly head formed and did last for a few minutes. Aroma of -really struggling to find it- metal and apples- ugh. Hits the mouth with light body, malt imparts a creamy sensation, middle and finish are all drowned out by water. Non offensive, but hardly what I would call a beer.

GIJOE (620) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Pours amber with a frothy, white head that stays long. Smells a bit tinny. Flavor is bland: light malty sweetness and faintly grassy hop finish. Thin and watery. Lively carbonation. Tolerable beer, which is surprising for a Budweiser product. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this one when it was a project beer with number 91406. Smooth and light with some mellow and creamier flavors.

Black Crown seems to be Budweiser’s half-assed attempt to compete with craft brewing. To be fair, it does have a flavor that’s slightly smoother and a bit more complex than your standard Bud product. That’s about all that I have to say about it that’s positive. I did enjoy calling it Budweiser Ass Clown with friends, though.

Bière blonde de 6 % d’alcool. Elle est mousseuse au versement, avec un col épais. Je trouve qu’elle a un goût initial de….pain aux bananes. Elle possède une légère amertume. Elle possède un goût simple, mais intéressant. On goûte bien le malt, mais on ne distingue pas la saveur de caramel….Correcte !

Well this is easily the best and most flavorful bud product I’ve had... I think. Aromas of lemon, vanilla, rhubarb. Sour but watery flavors. Decent. But thin and lacking any real strong flavors.

Bottle. Budweiser on roids hahaha. Nah this isn't too bad brewed here in Canada so tastes slightly better than Aussie version. I'm getting light caramel malts. Not much else. Average stuff overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is a slight step up from a regular budweiser, but that ain’t sayin’ much. It’s bland and boring and not very flavorful. Another one rated and under the belt...
