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.

darthmoore (20) - Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2013
UPDATED: APR 12, 2017 Pours a nice amber color with a tinge of rust. Single finger of off-white foam that fades fast and leaves little lacing. Smells of bread and a bit of caramel and some floral hop notes as well as a tad bit of citrus, the hop character is faint however. Picking up a bit of spice as well. Nose is surprisingly pleasant.Taste is medium sweetness in the front, lightly bitter, with a long finish that is both dry and sour in a good way. After all that it leaves a sweet sensation on the roof of my mouth. A surprisingly complex beer for a bud.This beer had a medium body, sticky, with lively carbonation and again a long finish.This is actually the project 12 version of the beer. It has been gathering dust in my basement for several months. Five or six maybe. I remember thinking it was terrible when I first tried it and being almost embarrassed for AB. Perhaps the cellaring actually did this beer some good because it is quite tasty now. Not a great beer but a good beer.

this beer is one of the best tasting beers I have ever had. I was always a Budweiser drinker, but have since switched to this tasteful beer. It is hard to find at our local bars and liquor stores but I can find it at a couple towns within 80 miles so I stock up.

I hate to admit, but in may just enjoy this bud a little more than I should. Has a little alcoholic kick. Refined and refreshing. A step in the right direction and a nice setup toward trying bolder amber brews.

The only beer in the arsanal of Bud beers that is truly worth buying, trying & enjoying. I am 71 and enjoy a good amber removing it from the line is stupid and insulting.

JPDIPSO (6094) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2017 As Batch 91406; Copper to bronze in color. Moderate sized, cream colored head. Decent lace. Lightly toasted raisin bread scent. Some grains and hints of alcohol. Spicy lager comes to mind with the first quaff. Woody and grainy. Drink these cold and you should likely be mildly unoffended. 11/12 As Budweiser Black Crown: Ar - 4 Ap - 2 Fl - 5 P - 4 O - 9 Rate 2.4 Modest white head that diminished to a single layer of bubbles above the dark golden to light amber liquid. Grains and hints of alcohol in the scent. Light caramel flavors. A nice feel, with some real body and a tight, tiny bubbled zip. Clean, but boring. 2/13

jbruner (4567) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2016
Pours a crystal clear golden brown from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma and taste of mild sweet maltiness and mild adjunct, clean lager crispness. Budweiser with some extra malt and color.

Cajun (523) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle - Pours amber, white head. Pretty much a Budweiser with more alcohol. I cant tell that the flavor is much better, nor that theres more alcohol for that matter.

12 oz. bottle. Poured amber with a tan head. Aroma was similar to Budweiser, corn and rice. Taste was sweet, not bad.
