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.

It poured a light yellow color. The aroma was corn with some rice. The taste was very light and not good, rather bland.

12oz. bottle: A friend felt compelled to buy a 6 after the Superbowl and gave me one to try. This one pours a very pale, clear yellow color. There was a good deal of a white head on it, but alas it did not linger or leave any lacing. Light aroma. A bit grainy, maybe some floral but nothing else. Taste is thin and watery. Can taste a touch of an adjunct (corn?) and a hint of sweetness. At 6% you might expect some flavor, but then it wouldnít be a light beer. Itís just an alcohol delivery device with a big ad campaign.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2012
12 oz. bottle purchased as part of a six pack at Safeway in Lynnwood, WA. Pours a pale golden yellow not too different than a regular Bud Light. Aroma: Sweet malt with a hint of pineapple. Flavor: Like a more full bodied version of Bud Light (obviously).

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 5, 2012
355mL BLUE bottle thanks to craftycarl21. Into Lost Abbey rastar tulip. Pours crystal clear light golden, with moderate carbonation. Larger white head erupts and settles down with moderate to small lace. Nose is decent pineapple, white sugar, almond paste. Taste is sugary sweet, oily, artificial canned fruits, sugary peach. Nothing bad whatsoever.

Appearance is transparent gold. Taste is watery corn pee. I donít like Bud Light, so the fact that this is 6% is somewhat redeming. Pour it in a glass though...no one needs to see you with that bottle.

I donít know why I always go for the gimmicks but I do. I guess I just wanted another rating. I knew this was going to be bad and it was. Poured a pee yellow color with no head. Aroma was corn and grass. Flavor was metallic, corn and yeast. Very, very thin. I think this is worse than regular Bud Light. More ABV which is a positive I guess. One positive is the cool blue bottle. HAHA. Horrible beer though. Not wasting any more time talking about it.

Had this from the bottle. Color is a clear yellow, no lacing. No real discernable taste.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2012
2/5/12. 12oz blue bottle consumed during the superbowl - YEAHHH BRO, WOOOOO! Super clear lighter than piss yellow with a small white head thatís gone fast. Light aroma of corn and fusel alcohol with a little bit of rubber band... like other people said, itís kind of a light malt liquor. The flavor screams BMC... itís kinda weird to me, as I havenít had a Bud Light or anything in awhile and itís bringing back bad memories. Sweet flavor that shows green apple and a bit of other fruitiness... basically, this is Bud Light but sweeter. Meeehhhhh.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Light to medium balanced aroma. Light to medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of short duration. Soft beer.

Pale gold with a white head. Nose is faint malts, hops, bland. Flavor is corn, stale, not much going on, a little more refreshing than water.
