1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted on 1-20-12 in blue bottle, before it was out on the market. It is what I expected, wimpy nose, pale color, plain taste which I actually prefer over regular BL. A little more substance to it than BL and 6% is a plus, especially with 120 some calories it claims on the back of the bottle... somehow I dont buy it, but still nothing I would go out and purchase.

Bud Light Platnium has made an appearance at the bar. Before the Super Bowl hype cracked a blue bottle and shared with a few beer drinkers. Corn, slight fizzle, yellow body, off flavored sweetness. Unanimously panned by the four taste testers. A brand that A-B will more than likely abandon in 12 months.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
The aroma is slightly malty with lighter fluid added alcohol and adjuncts. The appearance is pale gold with a fizzy forced carbonated type head. The taste is like the aroma and typical of the style. The palate is thin. Overall this is not much different than the regular with a tad of added alcohol and watery for the most part.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
typical of the style, clear and lightly tan, Iím giving it a staight up average rating. I was expecting crap, but it wasnít that bad at all. Grainy and sweet, but with a slightly dry finish. Good enough for my expecting terrible. Better than typical for the brewery, thatís for sure.

Well...itís not bad, for bud light that is. Some how they actually squeezed a slight flavor palate in there. Donít get me wrong itís still very bland, but maybe a step in a better direction for bud.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce blue bottle. Pours a pale golden yellow with a thin, white head that lasts. Taste is of wheat, banana, grass, rice and some citrus. Rather clean aroma, with some citrus and grass notes. The body is soft and light, but not overly watery. Reminds me more of Budweiser than Bud Light, which might be why I like it. Easy to drink and well worth picking up again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bud Light Plus! Itís essentially Bud Light with some added sweetness. The appearance is meh. Pale yellow with a quickly disappearing white head. The aroma is malty sweet with a touch of skunk. Palate is very light, of course. The flavor is okay. Overall pretty sweet with not much balance. Itís a thirst quencher, thatís about it.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours very watery yellow with about a finger of the fastest dissolving head I think iíve seen. Aroma is a little lighter than Iíd expect, typical bud light smell, off-sweetness and grass. It tastes...pretty much light Bud Light. A little less sweet, which is an improvement (albeit slight). Drinking it for the novelty.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
12 oz BLUE bottle: Aroma is corn, skunk and butt with a dry stale note in the backing. Appearance is golden but almost clear like water. Taste has got some sweet corn notes, a little bit of alcohol, and somewhat of a dry finish. Overall, PBR light was better than this. Not vile and disgusting. Just not that good. Cheers!

OK, Iíll give them a point for the blue bottle. Pours with a huge white head. Smells like yer usual Bud Light - powdery, Saazy. A little tangy, underhopped, pretty bland. I guess to make it a 6% ABV light beer, they had to remove all the interesting carbs. Goes flat, watery body, slightly tangy finish. Picked this gem up at the Circle K at Betton and Thomasville. Might just want to go with the Natty Ice if youíre looking for high ABV - itís got more flavor and itís cheaper.
