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.

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!

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.
