12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass

A: First off, this beer looks really light, thin, watery, and clear. has a nice amount of carbonation streaming, bright white head, little head retention after a minute or so, little bit of lacing.

A: Malts, grains, more musty than anything, not good.

T: Slight malts, grainy, earthy flavors, finishes very musty, strong aftertaste.

M: Lots of carbonation, thin, watery, refreshing on the palate.

O: Black Crown actually started out well on the flavor, crisp, refreshing but it finishes horrible. It has a strong musty aftertaste that reminds of old stale beer. It's thin, watery, but it is refreshing and I could see why someone might drink a whole bunch of these on a hot day. It just doesn't pack enough flavor to make it enjoyable.

Tastes sort of like a older, slightly stronger Budweiser. It was darker in color and had a slightly higher ABV. I don't get how it is classified as an amber or red lager though. It just seems like a more concentrated AAL.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
