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.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2013
12oz twist-off bottle. Light amber color, very thin ring. Super sweet aroma, some floral hops. Smells like sweet vomit... Tastes fruity, very sweet malts, residual corn sugars, distinctive Budweiser bitterness. Overall, its a heartier beer for these BL Platinum drinkers. (3590)

12oz twist-off bottle, mixed 12pk. Red Label. Pours clear, orange color. Thin white ring, some lace. Aroma of corn tortillas & fruity esters. Flavor is dominated by fruity esters, some caramel malt, floral hops. It is crisp, with a malt sweetness. Leathery, floral hop flavor in the end. Finishes with a bit of a black pepper like tingle. Overall, Its a Budweiser. Only more color. Keep trying, AB! (3510)

Bottle on Miami Beach. Nice amber body with slight head. Nose is malty, grainy some caramel. Taste is similar with caramel, malts, a tad sweet. Dry in the finish.

Cajun (431) - 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.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours a nice golden amber color. Aromas of malts, hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor has a nice crisp taste with a clean dry finish.

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

drjay44 (3478) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained off white head, with no lacing, over a clear, dark gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is light toasted malts with bread, minimal hops, slight fruity esters reminiscent of apple, pear......taste is slightly sweet, with light fruit notes, tending toward raisin with light pear and apple, becoming dry, with hints of light hop bitterness.......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation with slight creaminess. This really misses the style quite badly. It needs more toasted malts, with more malt aroma and flavor as well as a darker color. Also, the four types of hops are quite hidden. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
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

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
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.
