Default New: Budweiser Black Crown

Passing through the liquor store today and I came across Budweisers new Black Crown Lager.

Bought in a 12 pack.


A -Pours crystal clear golden with a good amount of carbonation. Nice head that disappears quickly.

S- Smells like corn and sugar. A bit of biscuits and caramel malt. I can detect faint amounts of hops. Some orange citrus notes. Smells like a Budweiser.

T- Tastes like Bud platinum with a bit more malt back and is pretty sweet. Probably the best Budweiser product out there. Definitely drinkable.

M- Carbonated properly, nice and balanced. Higher alcohol than a budweiser and more body than a bud light.

O- Typical Bud product but enjoyable. I was expecting a bit more as I thought they would want to jump on board with the "craft brew" movement.


Serving type: bottle

Thanks, I'll probably try a bottle if I can find it in singles. I've not had Guinness black lager yet either...which would you say is better?

Guinness black lager is OK, smooth lager with a bit of toasted barley flavor. Went down good on New Year's Eve.

I liked this beer (Budweiser Black). It has a lot in common with ordinary Budweiser but seems to have much more body.

I think I read Bud uses the same yeast for all their beers so even these specialty beers will stay close to the mothership in root flavor.
