Appearance has a light golden brown color supporting a dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell of the adjuncts within a Bud but also having a sweetness of the malt. Taste has a Budwieser, adjuncty, malt infused sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with fair carbonation. I mainly got this beer do to curiosity, one bottle is all thats needed, no need for a half rack.

12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Born on Jan 08, 2013.

A - Pours a golden amber body. One finger of white foam dissipates quickly leaving behind zero head.

S - Sweet corn, touch of malt. Not sure what else, just predominantly sweet.

T - Again with the sweet corn. Finishes nearly dry with a lingering stale bready malt flavor. Not bad actually.

M - Thin but spritzy.

O - Not as bad as I was expecting. An improvement over standard Bud and the Platinum, but I won't be buying this again.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, I'll put the bottle opener up since it's a twistie, pours a copper color with a short white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing, clear

S: sweet slightly boozy corn mash, sugary, maybe caramel

T: sweet, sweet, sweet, slight malt, mostly sugar, no hops, no depth of flavor, I don't like this

M: overly carbonated, watery, soda like, I can't tell the alcohol is there, the finish is as always clean

O: if you want to buy something from Budweiser get a plain ol Bud diesel, there is a reason it will be around long after Black Crown is gone, this beer is too much like a sweet beer flavored soda, it's trying to be a bock but falls short on all areas

12 oz. bottle "born on" date of 3/5/13, consumed 5/11/13.

Into a pint glass, a clear pale amber color with one finger of off white head. Quick fade to a thin cap. Nose is overly sweet and grassy. Taste faintly of malt alcohol, no real hopiness. Taste is not as sweet as nose, thankfully. Faint alcohol note on finish. Mouth is a bit thin and bubbly, OK. Overall: Rather mediocre, not terrible, kind of what I'd imagine as a sub-par example of pub ale, except it's 6% ABV so it's not exactly a "session" beer. I wouldn't buy another but wouldn't turn one down either.
