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.

Bottle. Little aroma, maybe a bit of corn. Seems to be even less flavor than regular Bud light though the corn and sweetness as with all AB products. Iím not sure what the point of this beer is and have no desire for a light beer with more alcohol. I think this product will find the same fate as Bud E and be off the shelves not to long from now.

Pale yellow and white head, and reminds me of a regular crappy bud light and is just grainy and flavorless. I have plenty of friends that will drink this, but count me out.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a very clear and very pale yellow body with a fading white head. Aromas are watery, light corn, seltzer, low grainy, mild acetaldehyde. Flavors are quite sweet, boozy, low quality malt, rice, cardboard, low DMS. Very appley. Lively bubbles, thin. Not much else to say.

Iíll score it slightly higher than Bud Light by .1. It had a grainy aroma with a pale yellow color. It had carbonation that helped hide what little flavor it had.

mcmisko (356) - New York, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Pours light yellow with decent white head that quickly fades. Smells like corn bread and wet hay. Taste like grains and a little cheap alcohol with high carbonation. Slightly larger body than a normal bud. Itís just a bigger bud light. Boring, but not too offensive.

Palidor19 (3143) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Smells slinky with a taste of corn and rich. Highly fizzy and alcoholic with a hard grain alcohol taste it. It bud light with a kick. Nothing else

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2012 The aroma is sweet, corn, adjuncts, noble hops, slight booze. The appearance is pale yellow, white head. The flavor is sweet, corn and other adjuncts, noble hops. Some boozy, solvent like flavors as well. Something like a malt liquor. The finish is very sweet upfront, and eventually I get a light noble hop bittering. Medium in body. Not at all good, but could be worse. Seems a little sweeter and heavier than the standard Bud Light.

Bottle @ home. Last time I was at arminís house, he had a dozen of these in his fridge but neglected to bring one to one of our tastings, so I was forced to buy a case to rate this bad boy. Not a screw off cap, very classy. Out comes in a blue violet, metallic colored glass bottle that is strangely similar to Skyy Blue bottles (bring that shit back!) Clear pale appearance with a big white head that dissipates quickly. Rich corny, pale malty, boozy aroma reminiscent of a weak malt liquor. Fairly strong, corny (or is rice?), a bit skunked flavor that does taste like a strong Bud Light. Somewhat crisp. Not overly offensive but it does suck balls. 23 more bottles to go.

Pours pale yellow with thin white head. Taste is watery and uninspired. Had this a graduation party, so Iím glad I didnít buy it.

jsmerig (1461) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Pours a pale yellow with a bubbly white foamy head Aroma of cider and pale American lager. Taste is notably sweeter than bud light. Still finishes crisp but with a small sour note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
