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.

Leighton (19558) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT - who knows where I got this. Pours crystal clear, dark gold, lightly effervescent with a moderate, foamy white head. Sugary bread, caramel and ripening fruits in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with candied fruits, orange, sugary bread, minimal bitterness, a bit of caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation and lightly creamy texture. Sweet finish, somewhat one-dimensional, with further caramel, bready and sugary malts. Perhaps a touch syrupy at points. Honestly, though, this isnt bad. It quite reminds me of a mild, German dunkel, or just a basic amber lager.

Single 473ML 16oz can $2.35 didnt buy it buy the case b4 thats why reviewed now once single cans showed up. This is the Labatt brewed version. Couldnt smell it till can was to noze. Kinda sweet and spicy but also typical massed produced lager. Alot more smell from glass, can was light. 2 finger head fads away amber looking. There may of been carbnation didnt fully pay attention. Its just like budweiser but a bit sweeter and buttery like. Smooth & easy drinking. Not great but not shit. Dont really care for it but its actully one of the better beers I have had with the budweiser name on it. Would not wont a case of this.

Not a lot of aroma, flavor, or consistency, but mostly inoffensive and fairly easy to drink. A watered-down version of an amber. Id take it over the standard macro lagers, if thats all thats available.

Bottle from Rite-Aid: Poured a medium colored amber hue with a thin yet dense foam head. Aroma smells sugary sweet like Nestea iced tea but nowhere near real caramel malts used by micros, however, this beer does smell more appetizing than regular Bud. The drink is well balanced and has a crisp palate but there is a not enough to convince me that the taste of this beer is even close to the competition on the shelves. Nice try InBev.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker-poured a transparent yellow/orange color with medium carbonation, one finger bubbly head formed and did last for a few minutes. Aroma of -really struggling to find it- metal and apples- ugh. Hits the mouth with light body, malt imparts a creamy sensation, middle and finish are all drowned out by water. Non offensive, but hardly what I would call a beer.

GIJOE (1107) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Pours amber with a frothy, white head that stays long. Smells a bit tinny. Flavor is bland: light malty sweetness and faintly grassy hop finish. Thin and watery. Lively carbonation. Tolerable beer, which is surprising for a Budweiser product. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this one when it was a project beer with number 91406. Smooth and light with some mellow and creamier flavors.

Black Crown seems to be Budweisers half-assed attempt to compete with craft brewing. To be fair, it does have a flavor thats slightly smoother and a bit more complex than your standard Bud product. Thats about all that I have to say about it thats positive. I did enjoy calling it Budweiser Ass Clown with friends, though.

Bire blonde de 6 % dalcool. Elle est mousseuse au versement, avec un col pais. Je trouve quelle a un got initial de.pain aux bananes. Elle possde une lgre amertume. Elle possde un got simple, mais intressant. On gote bien le malt, mais on ne distingue pas la saveur de caramel.Correcte !
