Portion of a 12 oz bottle into a Hunahpu’s snifter. Let me repeat that: Budweiser Black Crown was poured into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes.
A: Pours a light amber color, with a quickly fading white-shaded head.
S: Sweet caramel, cotton candy, and a pleasant lack of adjunct. Not ’good’, however it’s really not an awful nose.
T: Sadly, there’s a more notable adjunct presence on the flavor, followed by a bit of caramel...and a whole lot of nothing. Vintage Budweiser!
M: It feels too thick and heavy on the palate given how flavorless it is. This should be easy to drink - and isn’t.
O: Better than BL Platinum, I suppose. I’ve had it once, I never need to have it again.

This tastes very much like malt liquor, pours with a dark brown/yellow color and nothing really much of note of this beer. it does have some caramel taste, but it is not that much better than drinking a olde english if you ask me! Hiero (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2013
Like a mutation between 80% regular Budweiser and 20% Steel Reserve. Tastes of water and carbonation on the way down. The aftertaste is light and pleasant. The extra alcohol is hidden well. It might just nudge out regular Budweiser and some other mass-produced beers. crossovert (13078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Far better malt character than regular budweiser, but it is useless to compare, this is a pseudo craft that bud is using to try to injure craft beer. It isn’t that great. kirke527 (3) - Reisterstown, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2013 does not count
Golden yellow color with a slightly crisp taste. Minimal head, you can tell from the light taste and body that this is a typical American style beer. It could be classified as Bud’s slightly older and bolder brother, but not by much. I got it because of the Super Bowl ads. The ads were better than the beer...

Voltage, Philadelphia bottle ($4): Pours orangish. Aroma is grain and something that almost resembles caramel malt. Taste is pretty minimal, but has a slightly sweet finish. In some ways, the less said about this beer the better. In any case, I would rather have this than Bud Heavy any day. brewcrew2002 (89) - USA - MAR 24, 2013
Another budwiser attempt to get into the micro world... Carmel notes with that old bud taste radarsock (1203) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bought from town. 6pack. Pours a clear urine yellow with a trim milky head. Tastes and smells of limeade, LME, fried rice, and corn husks. Better than expected
Writing this on my friend’s computer; it sucks. Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
22oz "bomber" poured into a pint glass. Hey, for $2.19, I decided to try it out.
Appearance: Typical amber color ... EXTREMELY clear. Decent head that goes away quickly. Obviously, no lacing.
Smell: Actually not TOO horrible... a bit of adjuncts in the aroma, but mostly a low-quality malt. I was surprised I didn’t hate it. A bit of sweetness as well.
Taste: Tastes not at all like I thought it would... holy HELL is it sweet. It’s not awful, but Jesus. Adjunct flavors came through a lot in the beginning. Lots of sweetness, corn, low-quality malts. A woody taste comes through as well. After taste is of cheap malt, but it’s inoffensive.
Not the worst beer I’ve ever had, but bleh. It is what it is... for the price, it’s good to get cheap drunk. It’s certainly better than Budweiser, but not by much. There’s a lot of sweetness, so I expect a lot of adjunct fans to fall in love with this. SanfordBrewer (1577) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2013
translucent gold with a dense beige head. smooth medium body with medium-high carbonation.
aroma: pale malt, noble hops.
taste: adjunct grain, pale malt, leafy hops, and a touch of wood.
starts decent, but has a strange tangy papery note that builds.
