My rating is what I give Budweiser Black Crown and is based on the comparison between Black Crown and all of the other Budweiser Beer. This is the best Budweiser yet. I am surprised it has such low ratings. I have been drinking bud off and on for 15 years, and most of the time it tastes like piss water; but of course, after the first few regular buds, it does get better.. That aside :), this is a great beer. I was at the store and was considering other beers (micro brews) but saw Black Crown - hadn't seen it before. Got the 12 pack home, hoping it tasted a tad bit better than piss water... and it did. It tasted a lot better. Budweiser will never be known for being elegant, or taste like most micro brews, but this is the beer to get if you need something that tastes good on the first sip while keeping more money in your wallet/paypal acct /bitcoin acct/etc. :D The aftertaste, after consuming a taco and sipping on the beer isn't the greatest, but drinking this beer while eating is wonderful. I wrote this 3 beers in.

Served in a Becker pint.

Body is a copper - amber hue. Clear and slightly carb'd. The off-white, ahem, crown builds to two-finger's. Lace curtains left as the billowy stuff droops.

Wheaty bouquet, some mashed apple, pear, general light sweetness mainly.

The flavors are very close to the nose. The sweeter wheat malt base is the most forward. A little hoppy earthiness in the finish. Muddled flavors of apple and wheat beyond that.

Feel is actually decent. It drinks smooth, light bubble tingling noted. More light than medium body thanks to this.

Color me surprised! This stuff is drinkable. And it even has moments of being enjoyable! Give it a go if you are curious or need that tick fix.

This was a very disappointing beer from Anheuser-Busch, not much taste or smell and the color reminded me of weak tea, know need to go into an in depth analysis. Would much rather drink bud, busch or even select over this beer. I think I will stick with the micro brews made in the area.

12oz bottle poured into a Pint.

A-Deep copped color. Very clear and refined.Leaves a shred of white lacing down the glass.
S-Not a very prominant scent. Grainy at most.
T- Considering it comes from 1 of the big 3 Im impressed at what the attempt is. Full bodied grainy taste with a very subtle hop bite at the exhale. This beer is NOT a craft drinkers beer, but good enough for those pushing the limits of their Natty light college careers.
M-Carbonated, malty, slight citrus, beachwood smokey and bitter for a Bud.

O- overall not a bad beer for people who are beginng to explore the world of beer. A foot in the door. I could drink a couple on a sunday.
