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.

Okay, well its drinkable, but not really good. still some adjunct taste coming through and a malt likka type flavor which some may say helps.

473ml can. Clear, light amber colour. Basically no head or lacing. Mild caramel malt smell. Creamy, grain and amber malt flavours, not much hops. Slightly watery and creamy body. Overall, there are worse ways to get 6% ABV into you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice summer beer. Not to dark not to light. Not usually a Bud guy, but this is alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dourada escura, quase âmbar intenso. Bem carbonatada, com espuma generosa para o venero, mas com baixa duração. Prevalece malte, fermento e baixo amargor. Cerveja redonda, com grande drinkability. Sem defeitos existem grande atrativos. Destaca no final algo metálico. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Definite corn taste and pour aroma.heavy metallic smell. Very clear and fizzy. Like I said corn taste... Horrible attempt at a craft beer like substance.

At the A-B Biergarten in St. Louis. A little darker than Bud. Barely distinguishable flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Clear golden body with a small white head. Hay, grain, perfume. Just another mainstream beer.

Bottle. A- Metallic, grainy, malty, caramel, sweet. A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head. T- Caramel, malty, cereal. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish. O- This is what happens when big beer companies try to actually make good beer. You get stuff like this. Nothing I would claim to have drank, but still a definite upgrade from regular old Bud or Bud Light. It has a clean and balanced taste but it’s just pretty dang bland.
