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.

12oz can at BBQ. Drank from can, but I would assume the appearance to be piss yellow. Fuzzy carbonation. Aroma of sweet grain and yeast. Taste is sweet apple, grainy, corn, and yeast. Note to self: Start bringing your own beer to BBQ's!

Another Bud product I’ve had more than enough times. Here we go. This was poured at various times into a pint glass and a pilsener glass. There basically isn’t much change in either glass. The appearance was a light golden color with a rapidly dissipating white head. The smell had sweet corn aromas. The taste gives a big hint of sweet corn taste. On the palate, it sat at/about a medium with a decent evel of carbonation. Overall, just an okay beer by AB, as its nothing I would really go out of my way for again.

From BA review on 3-2-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a light golden color with a billowy white head. The head fades fast giving just an ever so light bit of lacing. Smell – Sweet corn aromas are big and bold. The lightest bit of citrus seems to be present as well, but is light in comparison to the sweet corn aroma. Taste – The taste is as the nose suggests. It gives a big hit of sweet corn taste. Just as in the nose, there is the slightest bit of lemon citrus that bitters the flavor ever so slightly toward the end (still quite sweet however) and rounds out the taste. Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with a very appropriate level of carbonation. It is also much less watery then the normal light beer. Overall – This is actually much more flavorful then the average light beer and its mouthfeel blows the normal light beer out of the water. It still is very one dimensional however with its taste consists nearly entirely of corn. Better than the average light beer, that is for sure, but not something to pine for.

The color is a very clear and very light yellow with a medium white head, and the aroma (well, what little aroma is present) blends lager yeast and corn. The taste is a touch of sourness without much else to it, and the palate fuses a light body, thin and slick palate, average carbonation, and a sour finish.

This actually disappointed me in terms of what it was. Just sheer marketing, this was like drinking a lightly wheat flavored water.

Crystal clear pale straw--I swear, I’ve seen darker ciders--under a thin bubbly white head. Cracker and metallic lager nose. Flavor is light and crackery with a weak body and a weak hay malt finish. Has a little boozy ester particularly toward the finish.

Capa (1969) - Manama, BAHRAIN - APR 26, 2014
Finally got my paws on one of these after a guest left it following a grill out. Clear, pale golden with a white head. Aroma is soft cereal grains, sweet, corny. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is mostly sweet corn and malt. The alcohol is well masked, though. Clean finish. Interesting enough to try once but thats about it. The science behind brewing is definitely on display in this brew.

Strong herb and earthy aroma that is clear golden colored. Taste is medium to strong bitter that is slick and lively. Overall a good beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3301) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Aroma has some corn and light burnt rubber. Nothing else is notable. Pours a brilliant, transparent, pale yellow color with a super fizzy, quickly dissipating weak white head. Starts with a fizzy, watery texture. Becomes slightly sweet, with very light corn in the middle. Finishes with a little bit of a mineral character. I am amazed at how flavorless they managed to make this 6% beer.
