1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours from a bottle with no head. Lightly golden and easily transparent. No different than that of a normal bud light. Faintly unpleasant skunky aroma. Light taste with a somewhat surprisingly syrup texture on the back of the throat. No aftertaste whatsoever.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Finally convinced someone to sell me a single and not hold my nuts to the fire for a sixer or case. Pours gold, deeper than pale lagers, with white fizzy head. Nose was pale malt, corny, mild hops. Tasted pale lagery, corny, with some cloying sweetness and finishing hops. Indeed, this is like a Colt 45 with a bit more smoothness. I agree with a prior poster that said that you could save some money by just buying Steel Reserve.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a golden piss yellow with a small white head. Some lacing. Aroma of wet grass, skunk, and booze. Taste is harsh, lots of CO2, burns the back of the mouth.... watery, sour finish. Save the dollar and buy the original Bud Light.

The best thing about this beer is the shiny blue bottle. The taste isnít much different than any of the other big light beers but if you want the higher alcohol content without good taste you might as well go with a cheap ice beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bud Light Platinum pours crystal clear and golden yellow. Slightly darker than regular Bud Light from what I remember. The snow white head dissipates quickly. Slightly sour pilsener malt aroma. Flavor of sweet malt. A touch of honey, perhaps, but mostly just clean pilsener malt. Not as much adjunct flavor as regular bud light. The body borders on watery, but doesnít quite cross that line. Highly carbonated and very drinkable. Overall, itís good for a BMC beer and I can appreciate it for what it is. This could be my weeknight drinker if it were a little lower in alcohol. But I guess that would defeat the point.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely to the edges. Aroma has lots of sweet grain with a good amount of hay and a bit of stale sweet bread. Flavor has sweet grains with stale bread a hint of alcohol and hay.

I still donít know why I wasted $2 on this... but for the love of the tick... Tastes like over carbonated, corn sweeted water. Pretty darn bad. I guess it would do the trick if you were trying to get toasted quicker than regular Bud Light would allow.

Its a mystery why the big beer makers continue to churn out this crap, one would think that with the craft/ microbrew explosion they might want to go more in that direction than backward towards the far end of what is only technically beer. Pours very pale yellow, only a little white head, goes away quick. Has little if any aroma but I can tell its something alcoholic. Palate is bad, in that it has no real taste like beer. I would say that corn is what I taste, corn and sugar, but only a little. AH describes the taste as "top shelf" which suggests that they dont know what beer is suppose to taste like. Puzzling, dont waste your time.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Grainy and Light Taste. Funky aroma with hints of sweetness in the flavor - nothing special - better than regular bud light though.....
