1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Orange color. Aroma of Budweiser. Very syrupy, even more than normal Bud. I like the packaging and the label. Seems like just another attempt by the big guys to cut into the microbrew market. Not a bad beer, but they could do much better. This tastes like high gravity Bud before it is diluted with water to create regular Bud. It is remarkable indeed to see the macro brewers worried about that tiny market share that they have lost to the micros. Too bad they will not spend the money to create something really decent. All the resources that they have, all the equipment, all the knowledge, all the ingredients and they still try to pass this off on us. The bean counters are still calling the shots. Cīmon Bud, let your brewmasters off the hook and let them make some world class beer.

Black crown just has a bad taste. I guess if itís all you have then it will do. Try something else

Budís "Brewmasters" didnít deliver too much with their attempt at a more quality brew. Tasted like a heavier Bud, which is exactly what it is. Pretty lame, and sad that some people consider this quality.

My go-to macro beer, a safe restaurant default. My favorite in the budweiser family. A solid taste and full body with mild bitterness. The taste is bitter without being hoppy. Mixed bitter and malty taste is somewhat confusing, but at least gives the beer decent character for a macro.

I was really hoping that this would be something delicious but it is just a sub par beer that is made for the masses.

Better than a Bud Light by a landslide, but still an American Lager and one that doesnít come close to what I would consider "craft" beer. Just a step ahead of the typical Bud corny, grainy, watery qualities with a bit more smoothness and drinkability. Only drink after a really hot/sweaty outing or exercise.

Bottle date 31JAN13. Poured amber with a quick off-white head. Very subdue to nonexistent aroma and flavor. Light body and a hint of a malt aftertaste. Bud will always be bud no matter what they try.

Bottle from Jessup plaza. Pours khaki with an Light brown foam. Not much on the nose except for a slight maltiness. Smooth on the tongue but not particularly flavorful. Very thin on the tongue Iím not sure Budweiser understands the whole craft beer thing.

12 oz from a six pack bought from a neighborhood mom and pop store.
This has the best possible chance of getting good marks from me..just back from the beach..thirsty and very very hot..so here goes.
Pours a slightly darker yellow colour but not much,head seems thicker and lasts longer than the usual Bud,
Aroma, cardboard,bread and caramel,slight bourbon/wood. Not bad.
Smooth malty,caramel,again the woody tones that remind me of bourbon.Slight grassy hop in the end.
Palate is pretty good for the style and maker.
Not a bad little lager really far better than regular Bud.
