Portion of a 12 oz bottle into a Hunahpu's snifter. Let me repeat that: Budweiser Black Crown was poured into a Hunahpu's snifter. From notes.

A: Pours a light amber color, with a quickly fading white-shaded head.

S: Sweet caramel, cotton candy, and a pleasant lack of adjunct. Not 'good', however it's really not an awful nose.

T: Sadly, there's a more notable adjunct presence on the flavor, followed by a bit of caramel...and a whole lot of nothing. Vintage Budweiser!

M: It feels too thick and heavy on the palate given how flavorless it is. This should be easy to drink - and isn't.

O: Better than BL Platinum, I suppose. I've had it once, I never need to have it again.

Serving type: bottle

Saw this at my local C-store and decided I would give it a try. After all, it's black crown, so it must taste regal....right? Wrong. If I had to describe this beer it would be 3 parts bud, 2 parts Michelob Amber Bock. Tastes pretty bad and leaves a "twang" taste on your tongue after your done. Michelob Amber Bock isn't the greatest, but it deserves a crown a lot more than this crappy beer does. I'll stick with Sam Adams Boston Ale or even Miller Genuine Draft is better than the "Black Crown."

Appearance – This is crystal clear with a monster head that fell quickly, not exactly what I was expecting.

Smell – This smells just like their Adjunct Lager. I really don’t get any characteristics of the style. It’s old, stale, cheap American grain.

Taste – Again this has no malt and I can’t for the life of me find one thing about this beer that would justify calling it an Amber Ale.

Mouthfeel – It’s kind of smooth which isn’t bad but it is way too light for the style and the cheap carbonation is wanting.

Sinkability – I couldn’t even finish this sad effort.

Serving type: can
