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.

Not sure what to think. Very orangy copper color. Not much actual flavor. No grains, no malts, no hops. Carbonated water with a light light beer taste. Strange. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours light amber with lots of visual carbonation but the head quickly dissolves. Light sweet grainy aroma. Lots of carbonation on the palate with some sweetness. The hops are really not detectable and just balances out the malt. Dry clean finish.

It is probably the best brew that Budweiser has put out. It is not too terrible but there are plenty of other beers I would rather be drinking.

Ehh. Itís Budweiser. You shouldnít be expecting a gourmet experience. Itís drinkable if you donít have anything else.

Pours a clear mostly amber color. Could be a tad darker before I call it amber. Nice frothy head. Some lacing.

Aroma is caramel. Roasted malt. Bread. Maybe some hops. The caramel aroma is the best feature, itís pretty strong. It smells similar to regular Budweiser, but the caramel makes it a little richer.

Taste is hoppier than Budweiser. Itís a tad sweet. I really donít have a lot to say about the taste.

Mouthfeel is medium. While itís well carbonated, itís actually soft to the finish, which is weird. I donít really like it. It finishes bitter.

Overall, this is pretty good. Itís somewhat odd. Itís not complex, but they may have tried a little too hard with this. Sometimes, "less is more." I donít really find this so enjoyable because itís hard to pick out any certain characteristics. Itís worth a try, and itís still a pretty offering from Budweiser.

Well, what can I say? I was thirsty as all-get-out, itís hot as a two-dollar pistol in Atlanta, and this is what they had. Pours clear amber with a fairly thick but effervescent ivory head. Weak aroma is fruity and malty. Flavor is actually OK, more fruity than malty, pear with some apple. Mouthfeel has average body, but fizz leaves something to be desired. OK for a party or while watching your favorite team kick ass.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a soft aroma of malt and hops, faint but there Appearance- A dark copper colored brew with a medium sized white head. Taste- An okay BMC product, does not compare on the flavor chart to a craft. not horrible Palate- Has a nice crisp feel, light bodied brew with heavy carbonation. Overall- An ok beer if the place you are at has a limited selection. There are many worse beers out there.

12 ounce single bottle from Hickory Tavern in Charlotte, NC, but widely available everywhere. Pours a lightly dark amber color with a thin head. Aroma is grassy and a bit of hops. Taste is super boring. This is just a stronger version of Budweiser with no redeeming quality what so ever.
