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.

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.

My friend Walter would live this. Yellow pour, white head. Grainy stank aroma and a grainy stank flavor. Yeah.

Cear yellow color with almost no head. This was lacking in flavor and aroma. Very watery. Iíll pass on this one.

Bottle. Sour milk and corn malt aroma. Yellow color with moderate but short-lasting head. Sweet corn malt flavor with light alcohol finish. Way better than I expected but unmistakably AB.

I have to say that this is far better than either original bud or bud light based solely on the fact that this has a little bit of fruitiness to it, both in aroma and flavor, and more strength. Not the best, but certainly survivable.
