From the 12 fl. oz bottle with an old date of 21 May 2013. Sampling it on April 19, 2014, which is nearly a year later.

The color of it is quite pleasant with its medium amber copper tone and small white head that fades off quickly.

The aroma is more malty than anything else. It has an odd caramel note to it and halfway decent sweetness. It was not what I expected.

The body is about medium and rather smooth.

The taste also has a nice caramel sweetness to it and that Budweiser Beech-wood roastiness. Better than regular Budweiser by far.

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."
