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.

Tastes and smells predominately of regularized Bud Light but with more of an alcoholic bite. Iím not kidding, thatís all thatís different: more alcohol. Itís just the same shitty pale lager as before.

They really need to stop stealing from brands that work. Why can't InBev make a new product with a new name ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought a sixer for the fridge for my moochie neighbor who drops by unannounced and decided I had to try one first to see what the fuss was about. This is a very fancy bottle - bright royal blue - clean graphics - easy twist off cap. And that about ends all of the redeeming qualities. Cat piss-like colored pour, no aroma, flat carbonation, flavors of grass stained rinse water from a laundry tub. Yummy. Needed a beer afterwards to wash it down....

UPDATED: APR 6, 2012 Pours a light urine yellow color. The smell is offensive, but the taste is even more so. Cooked Veggies, Sweetened Steamed Corn, Cereal Grains, and rubbling alcohol. Itís like they took Bud Light and dumped a shot of Everclear into it. The palate feels crisp....but too bad the carbonation is way too intense. I also am getting a headache from this beer, which Iím sure is not supposed to happen. Avoid this beer at all costs, though I got to hand it to Anheuser-Busch for making a beer which sucks so bad that it induces the hatred of fellow man.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of drowland) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of mustiness, corn, and wet cardboard. Flavor of corn, cereal, and grass with a light metallic (platinum) finish.

12oz bottle 4/4/12 (Binnyís Downers Grove Singles Rack)-42į in Lager Glass-Pours a clear very light golden with a small almost no head. Aroma of grains. Taste of the same with some sweetness. This light bodied brew is another crappy product from AB.

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.

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2012
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 (705) - 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.
