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.

Poor amber with metallic edge. I guess the scoop of darker malt in the commercial does have an effect. Did I say metallic.

My Bottom Line:
Limp cereals give off honeyed allusions in this very quiet sugary lager.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the amber-hued golden.
-Hops are nearly absent.
-The malts don’t even develop clear caramel flavors.
-If this were crisp and refreshing, I’d at least quench my thirst. But it’s nowhere near that.
-I would take Sam Adams Boston Lager over this 10 times out of 10 (for a similar flavor profile, intensity and availability).


Boutip (6433) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Can: Poured a light brown color lager with a medium head with limited retention and very subtle lacing. Aroma consists of light cereal with grainy caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by grainy cereal notes with light caramel adjunct notes. Body is thin with OK carbonation. Worst than I was expecting.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Pours a clear dark copper with a big white head. After that this is dominated by acedaldehyde and some caramel malts. The acedaldehyde is acceptable in their regular lager but not in a Vienna. Sorry for folks this is just too much of an off flavor.

Cuso (8880) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from a friend. Amber color with white head. Light malty aroma. Very light malty taste.

Gurthnar (6110) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2014
Can. Aroma corny, fruity. Uninviting. Clear golden colour. Taste is lightly lightly caramelly, otherwise corny ambiguously malty. Not as tragic as most industrial beers. Drinkable.

MisoW (3623) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2014
Can, kindly donated by. Pours golden color, white head. Aroma is caramel, honey, sweet. Taste is malty, corny, hints of honey, caramel.

Tac (157) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Pours deep golden color with small white head. Aromas of toasted malt, some cereal. Taste is somewhat sweet with mild bitterness.

Frank (4220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2014
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 AB-InBev also has a beer called Busch Signature Copper Lager which is way better and cheaper than this garbage if anyone is interested. This headless amber nonsense has a bit more hop character than regular Bud but is too sweet and otherwise pretty boring. It has a bit of that apple-like yeast character Bud is known for and also a touch of diacityl so it is not even clean and well brewed. I can see no reason to ever drink this again.

reebtogi (6330) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
355ml bottle pours a very light amber color with a finger and a half of fizzy white head that settles very quickly. Aroma is grassy with some grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light grainy malt sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A typical macro lager with just a little color added. Nothing special and not recommended.
