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.

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.

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.

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.

Tastes like bud light with a shot of vodka. Very sweet, grass, corn, the usual crap. Nice looking bottle, nothing else.

Bottle to glass. This is the color of my piss when Iím medium, to well, hydrated. Clear, as well. Aroma is sweet corn and mineral water. Taste is bold and sweet. More corn and some seltzer water. Thin, light, watery. Karl is correct; you could easily drink a thousand of these in a night.

Bud Light Platinum is beer known to most of us through Super Bowl advertisements and the fact that Anheuser-Busch is ubiquitous. The marketing angle on this is definitely kind of weird. It positions itself as sort of an upscale light beer but then they also focus on the elevated alcohol content. I am wondering if the idea, which is still all to prevalent in the craft brew community, that stronger beer is better beer has gone mainstream. In any case, there is nothing too special--good or bad--about this as far as Anheuser-Busch beers go. It is a very light straw yellow color w/ nearly no head. The first whiff is quite pungent w/ an edge of overripe fruit and alcohol but then the aroma wanes to a low level cheap beery smell w/ a twist of bandages around the corners. This is a very light but slightly sweet beer in flavor w/ a high level of slightly fizzy carbonation, which feels about appropriate. Aside from smelling a bit strange, this isnít undrinkable or anything--it reminds me most of maybe lemon flavored carbonated water--but it really doesnít do much for me otherwise.

Fancy blue glass. 12oz twist-off bottle. Pours clear light golden color. There was a white head but its gone now. Smells like corn. Overly sweet. All I taste is sugar. Gag reflex too. It is pure corn sugar. Tastes like the stuff Iíve used to bottle condition my homebrew. Its just way too strong for the sugary flavor. Fruity flavor in the finish but not worth suffering through an entire bottle. Ugh, so gross. It is just too sweet. Overall, it should be called King Cobra Light. This is worse than the worst Malt Liquor. (3283).

High alcohol, and it doesnít taste half as bad as I expected. The bottle says itís an Ale, but clearly that is not the case. Underrated for sure.
