COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bud Light Platinum has reinvented the category of light beer. Within each cobalt blue bottle lies a bold formula thatís 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.

Looks and smells just like bud light. Flavor is a bit stronger, which is good, but is really testing the limits of how many cost- and time-saving corners they can cut before their products are just outright offensive.

Very super light pale lager. Aroma is of corn and stale malt. Not very pleasant. Tastes light. Not a whole lot going on. Gum. Light malts I guess. Not unpleasant. This is a smooth beer. Not great though. Better than regular bud light.

WisconsinBeer (700) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Slightly dehydrated piss yellow color. No head to speak of. Flavor is very slight hints of malt and grains. Finish is weak, with a hint of sweetness on the tongue. Iím not sure how this really differs from regular Bud Light really. Slightly smoother with a bump in ABV. Not awful, but pretty bland. The blue bottle it comes in is pretty fucking cool though.

stangger (582) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Aroma, for some reason, is overpowering yeast. It reminds me of a white labs yeast vial. Taste is fairly clean, crisp. Itís all relative, obviously, but this isnít offensive. Top tier of macros, at least.

hotstuff (3916) - Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle and rated on 3-29-2012. Pours a very small white, fizzy head that mostly diminished. The body is transparent, no lacing, fast-rising carbonation, and a yellow hue. The Aroma is some malt, corn and grainy. The Flavor is lightly sweet, some malt, and grainy. The Mouthfeel is tingly and this is a medium bodied Pale Lager. Overall, I drank/rated this beer and not much else to say about it.

A decent light lager. More taste than Bud Light, but still not a ton of flavor. There are better lagers out there.

djd07 (2914) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with no head. The aroma is corn malt and metal. The flavor is almost non existent with metallic corn malt. Nothing going on with this one.

The beer has a light gold color with a thin, bubbly white head that had short retention and cling. The aromas were mild, with notes of grain and a touch of malt. The taste was fairly meek with a slight grainy bitterness and only a hint of sweetness. It was a thin beer with a light mouthfeel, and had low carbonation and was on the dry side with a slightly pronounced alcohol effect.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Clear yellow pour out of bottle, thin fizzy white head. aroma is adjunct filled with corn and rice, hints of slight grainy ness, but thatís about it. Taste isnít much better, slight corn, grain, slightly dry. No thanks.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Appearance: Pours out a clear, yellow body with a small, fizzly, white head that doesnít stick around for long. A few trails of effervescence fail to support the head.

Smell: Just a small sniff of husky bland barley and booze.

Taste: Faintly grainy with a scant cereal sweetness. A little booze. Itís akin to a baby malt liquor. Sweetish, lightly husky, lightly astringent finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Itís bad when a beer makes you want a Bud Light.
