COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bud Light Platinum has reinvented the category of light beer. Within each cobalt blue bottle lies a bold formula that’s triple filtered with a smooth finish to create its stop shelf taste. Its the first of its kind, and the only beer worthy of the name Bud Light Platinum.

355 ml aluminum bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a very thin , short lived, white head. Aroma of malt, fruit and corn. Sweet fruity flavour with malt, corn and a hint of bitterness in the finish. Light body with a thin, watery texture and soft carbonation.

If you buy this all I can say is you must watch a lot of commercials. No aroma. No flavor. A disgrace to beverages.

Tasted on 7/15/14 from an aluminum bottle purchased at the local Kroger. Pours clear golden with a thin white head that quickly nearly disappears, leaving very thin lace. The nose is sugary sweet corn malt. The flavor is the same with maybe just a touch of green hops. The body is medium with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short sweet corn finish.

Bottle from the Zombie bar. A light malt liquor, interesting. It’s not offensive. Any hops or bitterness are undetectable. Lingering adjunct aftertaste. Fine for what it is.

Nice bottle ... Bad aroma , bad appearance, empty watery taste. Water, malt and nothing about taste.

Doing some shameless macro-bashing in this review. To begin, this label embraces artificiality and industrial manufacturing even in its advertising campaign, stressing how it is specially processed to give as light a beer with as much alcohol as possible. The blue bottle, though aesthetically appealing, again projects an industrial image. Actual beer appearance is unattractive no matter how you look at it, a pale yellow clear watery color with some chemical lacing and bubbles. Smell is adjunct sweetness. Taste is exceedingly sweet, some fruity/ sweet straw flavors. Struck me as rather cringe-worthy. Very watery mouthfeel, thought that came to mind was "corn-water." Finish tries to be bitter but ends up an odd sour aftertaste. Not a clean finish at all. I can't tell whether this is better or worse than standard bud light.

My buddy Al from RI loves this beer! Wawaloam Campground will never be the same because as quick as it goes in, it comes out.

If i could rate this a zero i would. Looks like piss. Smells like skunky beer. Tastes like skunky beer laced with formaldehyde. One of the worst drinking experiences of my life!

This beer is great out of a bottle, but terrible from a can. I was surprised by the difference in taste.

The blue glass 12oz twist off cap bottle pours with a watery clear body that has a yellow hue and supports a weak white head. The aroma offers up sugary sweetness, pears, corn and apple juice. The taste has a fairly smooth body that tries to be too sweet and later succeeds at it with sugary malts, pears and sweet apple fruity esters and then even more sweetness to midway. This doesn’t have much in the way of the steam roller of sweetness. Hops? Not sure. Too sweet overall but not to the point of being offensive just plenty of sweetness to keep me from trying more of this.
