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.

wmubronco1992 (682) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a familiar light yellow. Small fizzy head head. Sweet grain aroma, maybe just a little better then regular Bud Light. Flavor is pretty similar to water, but I like water. Some carbonation. No aftertaste. Not unpleasant actually. Top Shelf, absolutely not, but Iíve had much worse. Iíd drink this again standing in the driveway with the neighbors or watching a football game.

Evolutionary (427) - Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle at big dons bday party. A weaker pale tasting macrobrew. Mild bitterness. Prob not order again but my mouth doesn't feel raped at least. ---Rated via my mouth

JohnnyJ (5200) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Iím not sure why Iím rating this, but here we go. Clear yellow, fizzy head. Cheap grain (corn), sweetness, and slightly musty. Very standard macro brew, but really not bad. If it was cheaper I would drink this as swill.

blutt59 (6364) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle, clear gold with white head, arOma is sweet Karo syrup, flavor is sweet corn and a bit of some grains

Pale and fizzy, blah, blah blah. Iím not going to sit and the finer points of this brew as i would an imperial Stout. It is a macro light. Just more gimmicks to sell the same old stuff. Having said that, for the category, it has some strong suits. It has a pleasant crisp (albeit weak) taste without the overbearing adjunct aftertaste found in some. The 6 ABV is nice to have since it is not overbearing.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 12/20
steeleebird (12) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
As a pils from the states this is what I expect. Smooth with little backbite and the alcohol level is higher than std. Bud lite. Nice addition to their beer line.

2.3
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
Onslow (1318) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Pour from a 12 oz cobalt blue bottle. LIghter shade of pale yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet corn, grain, sour grass. The AB floral hops mix that runs through the Budweiser / Michelob family is also presnet. Not really a pleasant aroma but not vegetal. Taste is sweet grain, corn, with a sour finish, again with the AB hops blend coming out in the end. Actually, not so bad. Re-rating this - actually, pretty good for an IAL (Imperial adjunct lager.)

Like the cobalt blue bottle, should blow up nice when shot in the sun. This is a good drinking beer for the swill drinkers like me...not bad at all.
