473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. I guess this is the Canadian version of Budweiser Black Crown. Purchased from LCBO for $2.40 CDN.

Appearance - Crystal clear, honey brown colored beer. Pours with some visible carbonation and a decent 1 finger head. Unfortunately the head doesn't last long and no lacing left behind.

Smell - Corn graininess and some caramel. Nose is quite weak.

Taste - Very bland. A trace of caramel and some general grainy flavor but there's not much else. Nothing offensive, just nothing particularly enjoyable.

Mouthfeel - Light body, moderate carbonation, finishes dry. The one area where the advertising doesn't lie, is that it is smooth.

Overall - A little better than I thought it would be. No offputting flavors or noticeable adjuncts. If the nose and flavor was a little more... well not so weak, I could actually see myself having this again. As it stands, this is a one off.

Purchased at the LCBO for just over $2.40 or a 473ml can. Served at a chilly 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a good white head that is gone in seconds. Rather dark gold color and filtered clear

S- Bubble gum good!

T- Fairly good malt back bone. Some hops but not much. No bitterness or metallic flavor at all. Rather nice

M- Creamy with some dryness

O- Pretty good for a Bud. Nothing like their usual 5% brew. Will buy again

Food Pairing

This pretty good beer went well with...... Spicy tuna roll. Sushi and this heavier brew was nice

Budweiser Crown brewed in Canada from Labbat
So the look of it, not much difference than the Budweiser a bit more amber.
The smell of it You smell the corny more on this one than the original one.
The taste of it. A bit stronger than the Budweiser on the taste due to that higher ABV. The after taste stays more than the Budweiser. Feels less watery.
So overall would I recommend it ? NO. For the price that you pay for a Budweiser Crown, you better go for a Budweiser at a cheaper price.

Had a pint in an authentic Bud Crown glass at a Calgary pub. Sheer morbid curiosity. More of a dark gold than a true amber color, with an anemic off-white smattering of head and an oddly fruity, doughy sweet aroma that reminds one of play dough, red licorice, and some sort of artificially flavored banana hard candy. Palate includes some of these fruit candy type features along with faint grass, caramel (even more faint than the grass), cardboard, and sweet dough with surprisingly moderate carbonation. Thin bodied as the appearance might suggest and finishes doughy and sweet, any hops or hop extract essentially neutered. An archetypal mainstream amber/red lager that happened to arrive on the scene wayyyy too late; this sort of beer is why this style has such a spotty reputation but I suppose if these guys wish to brew something besides fizz water, this is going to be a logical starting point.

Why do swill brewers insist on brewing 'craft' beers? They don't work.
This beer pours a dark golden colour with a fingers worth of head that quickly dissipates. Smells like watered down sake. Taste is refreshing, but so is water. Not much flavour. At least it is not offensive. Mouthfeel is overcarbonated, like soda. Overall, not a good beer. Glad I only payed a couple bucks for the can.

This is a review for the beer being brewed and sold in Canada. Not to be confused by the American version "Black Crown"

Poured a dark golden and amber colour. Decent head.

Smell was ok. Not to strong. Not off putting.

Taste was noticeably stronger then Budweiser. Almost had a "German" beer taste to it. Little bit of aftertaste.

Mouthfeel was almost what it should be. Plenty of carbonation.

Overall I wasn't dissapointed. I was expecting something better then the regular, but nothing world class. Thats what I got.
