Budweiser Black Crown Review

Well I like my beer, as you probably already know, so when a new beer hits the market I got to run out and try it.  It was unveiled at the Superbowl.  The next day, I went out and bought a six pack of Budweiser Black Crown.  Here’s what I thought.

The Black Crown basically gives you exactly what it describes in the following:

Budweiser Black Crown is a new 6% alc./vol.* golden amber lager chosen by you, the people. Rooted in Budweiser’s rich heritage and authenticity, it delivers a smooth and distinct flavor you’ve come to expect from the King of Beers. Brewed with toasted caramel malt and a variety of American Hops, this drinkable golden amber lager is finished over beechwood chips for a smooth and distinctive flavor.

A lot of drunks get excited because it is a strong beer = 6% alcohol.  (Unless you’re in MN and buy it at a gas station or grocery store then it’s 3.2%).  The problem I find with lagers or ambers that have more alcohol in them is that there is almost always a sugary aftertaste.  You need more sugar for more alcohol.  If you don’t add some bitterness to it the sweetness comes out.  Black Crown does have a mildy sweet aftertaste.

You can taste a hint of caramel, and it is a smooth beer.   It’s a little more pricey; I paid $7.99 for a 6 pack.   It’s a beer that everyone can enjoy, but it probably won’t be your favorite beer of all time.  But that’s ok, sometimes you need to switch it up a bit.  And if you feel like being “fancy,” Black Crown is a good beer for that occasion.

Overall I would give this beer a 7/10.
