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.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 AB-InBev also has a beer called Busch Signature Copper Lager which is way better and cheaper than this garbage if anyone is interested. This headless amber nonsense has a bit more hop character than regular Bud but is too sweet and otherwise pretty boring. It has a bit of that apple-like yeast character Bud is known for and also a touch of diacityl so it is not even clean and well brewed. I can see no reason to ever drink this again.

355ml bottle pours a very light amber color with a finger and a half of fizzy white head that settles very quickly. Aroma is grassy with some grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A typical macro lager with just a little color added. Nothing special and not recommended.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
Clear golden pour with no head or lacing. Malt, honey aroma. Malt honey flavour. Very sweet, sickly brew. Nasty chemical finish. Leaves a off putting film on the palette. Not nice at all.

Bottle from a bar in Cornlea, NE, pop 36. It's a year old but tastes fresh enough. Pleasantly surprised by this...has some body and pretty good caramel malt flavors. Lightly hopped. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Bottle (341ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a clear gold with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma of sugar, toffee, caramel malt, grain, alcohol and fruit -- I don’t know -- I know it’s not good. Flavour of caramel malt, toffee and sugar -- it’s sugary sweet -- along with a slightly dry finish. Average bodied. Not as bad as I expected it to be but it’s not good regardless.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Slight sweet malt and bubblegum aroma and flavour but really faint and nothing interesting going on here. Apple gross sweet taste. More crap from Budweiser.

HogTownHarry (6373) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
12oz bottle shared by jercraigs & mabel with me and blankboy. Clear light amber, smallish white head. Aroma is VERY fruity, a little medicinal, some alcohol, maybe/kinda vaguely cereal grain and floral. Taste is even sweeter - a bit like the Hebrew beers watered down - not all that boozy. Sticky, flattish, quick finishing - ehh. Why?

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount, "born" over 4 months ago. Light amber and clear with a small white head. Very mild aroma of toasted grains, pale malts, light hops and chemicals. Similar flavor, starting clean and malty and quickly moving to an unpleasant finish reminiscent of Budweiser. Average body, crisp with carbonation. No thanks.
