The beer pours a light amber to dark golden in color. There is a large white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is toasted malt, lightly burnt bread crumbs, slightly sweet with a light grassiness on the end. The taste follows the aromas, quite toasted, lightly sweet, with a grassy and lightly bitter finish. There is an unpleasant overcooked brussell spout note that permeates the entire thing.

Budweiser Black Crown (poured into a whiskey glass) has a thin, off-white head, little or no lacing, and a clear, golden, bubbly appearance. The aroma is very strange because it’s so fruity. Taste is the same with the odd fruitiness (although, I know it’s not a flavored beer), barley malt, rice, sweetness, and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Budweiser Black Crown finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and drinkable. Overall, this is another winner from InBev, and I really like it!

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass,
Clear copper in color, with a decent head of bone-white foam.
Aroma-Faint toasted malt
Taste-Slight caramel note, faint toasted malt, smooth, clean finish, light-bodied. Not too bad. A step up in flavor and body from regular Bud. A little step in the "craft" direction.

12oz sample bottle poured into a plastic cup at work

A: An amber-yellow color. Bubbly. No head

S: Bread, yeast, mild hops. I smell something sweet as well

T: Same bread, yeast taste in most lagers. There is something sweet that I taste in the background but I can't make it out. Maybe cherry.

M: Medium body, bubbly but smooth.

Overall: It's decent. For an AAL, it's pretty good. Not something I will drink though as it doesn't really have any taste to me haha.

A -Pours crystal clear golden with a good amount of carbonation. Nice head that disappears quickly.

S- Smells like corn and sugar. A bit of biscuits and caramel malt. I can detect faint amounts of hops. Some orange and citrus notes. Smells like a Budweiser.

T- Tastes like Bud platinum with a bit more malt back and is pretty sweet. Probably the best Budweiser product out there. Definitely drinkable.

M- Carbonated properly, nice and balanced. Higher alcohol than a budweiser and more body than a bud light.

O- Typical Bud product but enjoyable. I was expecting a bit more as I thought they would want to jump on board with the "craft brew" movement.

Serving type: bottle

S- Smells like Roasted barley, kinda like Bud.

T- I don't know if my palate isn't just that good but This taste like Bud with a kick.

M- Watery, thin no body. Just awful.

O- Cool bottle was only $2 but its Bud, surprised I even bought it.
