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.

snoworsummer (2500) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2014
From a bottle. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like stale malt, straw, and musky corn. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky straw, corn, not much aroma.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is musty corn, light caramel, light spice, and some funky wood character. Flavor is dry and funky, not too offensive but definitely some cooked corn notes. Medium body and light carbonation.

bubbleflubber (1854) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Certainly not the worst A-B offering available... but thatís not indicative of "craft style" change by the macrobrewery. It pours a clear amber into the glass, with a weak soda head that diminishes to no lacing. The nose is of circus peanuts and some marshmallow. Flavors are very subdued, malty caramel and some light woody notes, finishing with aerated sugars and nondescript hops that donít make a real difference in the grand scheme. The mouthfeel is light and the palate has soft carbonation. Overall, for a brewer with so many resources, you canít tell me that A-B canít produce a "real" substantive, complex craft offering, especially when the craft scene is so huge. Not one? Really? Oh well, again, this certainly isnít the worst offering A-B has produced. But itís just a shame that phrase has to sum up A-Bís approach to the craft brewing world.

In bottle. Tastes like yellow colored water. Almost zero palate. Quite aqueous. Not a bad flavor, but not good either. Just kind of blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Backlog rating on 11-20-2012 (Bottle) This beerís appearance is a small ivory head that mostly diminishes, transparent gold body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and a suggestion of hops. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt and a suggestion of corn. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer lacks much aroma and flavor and did not set the world on fire for me.

I was looking for a beer for the days end and sports. It had all the pleasant taste and fullness without the bitter after taste. This is my first choice now.

CelticBrew (866) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Why do I do this? Poured from 12 oz bottle a deep golden amber color with a quickly dissipating off white head. Aroma of Bud-Skunk, dirty bar carpet, sweet corn malt and dirty, wet grass. Flavour was of thin malt, caramel, and a dominate corn character. It finishes with what I can imagine what a dirty and wet kitchen towel would taste like. Classic, Mega-Macro, American swill. Pass....
