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.

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.

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.

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.

It's smooth in the same way that flat San Pellegrino water is smooth. Not as much metallic flavour as the Banquet beer, but close. An oxymoron at 6%. It's drinkable enough. Just not memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a beer thats 6%, I was expecting more taste out of this. Nope, very bland, metal taste from the bottle. I will pass.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold. Corn and bad malt liquor aroma. Basically tastes like Bud Light mixed with Hurricane. Pass.

Pours a clear straw colour with some carbonation. Smells like sweet, sour apple juice. Tastes likes sweet malt and apple juice. Light texture with slight alcohol burn in finish and notes of sour apple juice. Overall a mediocre high alcohol beer.

Great tasting beer. Tastes like a light, but with very high alcohol percentage. I’m still a Coors man though.
