Budweiser Black Crown isn't the worst i've ever tasted nor is it the best but they are okay. I am a fan of busweiser in general and never have had a problem with flavor or anything like that. i like that they came out with this. i prefer it to some of the other stuff that they have made and enjoy a nice cold one once in a while.

Part of a mixed 6 pack.

A- not very amber...quite gold in colour, big head of foam, not much lacing.

S- grainy, with a mix of some sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Not much of an aroma at all.

T- pretty bland tasting. The grain is the highlight as I find the malt dull/muted, brings nothing to the table. What hoppiness is there is a mere non enjoyable bitter flavour that also doesn't do anything good for the beer.

M- bigger body than Bud but the carbonation is vrazy fizzy.

O- pretty poor example of a Red Lager, not even a good example of a beer.

Bitter, almost sour. Not red in color as amber would suggest. Not terribly pleasant but the ABV gives a good kick from an atypical macro. Kudos to Budweiser for the effort though.

This is a decent brew in the Macro 6% abv, beer category. I did not pour this beer into a glass from a bottle, so that I can enjoy the nuances of the brew itself - as I enjoyed this beer at a dimly lit establishment.

This beer is highly effervescent, too effervescent I must say, in which the bite of the bubbles sting your palate. Taste is similar to a regular Budweiser beer, but slightly sweeter due to its ABV content. Overall, I would drink this beer with burgers or dogs, and then move on to quality craft brews. Bon Appetit!

Not bad for Budweiser, has a real beer taste... got to say .... this might be one of my favorites from the bud family... I thought this was going to be to Budweiser what Bud light platinum is to bud light, but the flavor is distinct ... Good job guys
