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.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is sweetish and lightly fruity, rather uninspired. The flavor pretty much the same, fruity and lightly sweetish, a faint bitterness chiming in. Short finish. Most definitely not worth a revisit. 130811

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT - who knows where I got this. Pours crystal clear, dark gold, lightly effervescent with a moderate, foamy white head. Sugary bread, caramel and ripening fruits in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with candied fruits, orange, sugary bread, minimal bitterness, a bit of caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation and lightly creamy texture. Sweet finish, somewhat one-dimensional, with further caramel, bready and sugary malts. Perhaps a touch syrupy at points. Honestly, though, this isn’t bad. It quite reminds me of a mild, German dunkel, or just a basic amber lager.

bhensonb (11388) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours light, clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is lightly yeasty with a suggestion of hop. Med minus body. Flavor is actually not too grainy, but it drops off to a bit papery. Hop is clearly present, but there’s not enough to make this interesting. Nifty label tho.
Earlier Rating: 11/5/2012 Total Score: 3.3
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours light amber gold with a creamy white head. Aroma of malt and mild/light spicy hop. Med body. Flavor is caramel/bready with noticeable noble hop - seems a bit spicy to me. It’s well balanced, maybe even bending to the dry side. Tastes pretty good, and it drinks quite nicely.

brokensail (11300) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Amber colored pour with a white head. Sweet bread, banana, yeast, a bit of water, and some grain. Light apple and metallic notes, some slight tartness, too. Flavor has a surprising amount of banana, which is nice. Toasted malt, bread, and yeast. Lightly metallic and tart on the finish.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up in a mixer sixer at some dumpy liquor store in Fort Collins. Pours a perfectly clear, golden orange appearance with a dissipating off white head. Big corn/rice, grainy straw, a bit woody, herbal, sweet, somewhat strong aroma. Sickly sweet, rice, banana, a bit bready, a bit metallic flavor. If given the option, I would take Budweiser over this.
