1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very excited to try this one. Regular light was a bit of a let down, but perhaps this platinum one will be the beer bud light should have been! Poured a very pale yellow color with a thin white head that faded quickly. Aroma of rotten eggs and rice. Not off to a good start. Taste has some light sweetness with corn and some grains. Some rice. Overall I like the sweetness, but this is not much better than other pale lagers. Aftertaste is a little sweet with some corn. You were the chosen one, Bud Light Platinum! You were supposed to bring balance to Bud Light, not destroy it!

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nominally better than Bud light, mainly because of a stronger flavor and aroma but it was a catch-22, because the green apple acetaldehyde of BL was ever more pronounced in this beer. Also, in malt liquor fashion, the beer had a coarse, somewhat tart/astringent grainy and sugary finish that really makes you shudder.

Smells slightly skunky. Looks like some one peed in my glass. Tastes like water. Not a good drink. No thank you.

The blue bottle Kroger.In red under the watchful eyes. A little yellow. Through its "Mom and Dad, I just see this is a huge white head, but it is long gone. Aroma a bit like the glass cleaning odor weak, almost particles, just a little taste, I really can not complain. whom, is unpleasant, but no real unpleasant, this is the only Iím not happy that their companies.

I really had to go outta my way to get this one!! Enjoy those BA hunahpus I sent!! Nose...what nose?? Not much to talk about. Flavor is light hop and grainy malt/corn. Sweeter than I thought. I didnít think this was horrible but obviously itís not my brew of choice.

This would be the beer if Bud light, Bud diesel, Bud Ice and Bud Dry had a baby. Pretty much a weaker malt liquor that isnít as offensive.

The best thing about this beer is that, when poured correctly, it can put out a fire.

Yellow w/ small white head that actually leaves a hint of lacing. Has that light lager grains of nothing smell, with a touch of alcohol. At first it was what youíd expect from a light lager, metallic, corny, no discernible hops. As it warms though there is a funky chemical flavor to the aftertaste. Itís sweet, but also reminds me of model glue. Itís not good. Iíd rather save $2 per 6er and get Miller High Life if I have to get shit beer.

I am going to sum this up quick.......MR. BEER KIT, this beer is made of a hint of barley, and hops. The rest is a booster!

15 feb 2012, bottle. pale yellow, almost clear. clear, some bubbles. i think this is paler than bud light and it smells fainter than bud light. but it is a bud light smell; slightly sweet lager with the faintest bit of higher alcohol aroma. thin body and a bit fizzy. actually tastes blander than bud light, but there is an alcohol kick at the end. i really donít understand this. itís not worse that bud light, but oddly weaker in areas.
