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.

Pours a clear straw colour with some carbonation. Smells like sweet, sour apple juice. Tastes likes sweet malt and apple juice. Light texture with slight alcohol burn in finish and notes of sour apple juice. Overall a mediocre high alcohol beer.

Great tasting beer. Tastes like a light, but with very high alcohol percentage. Iím still a Coors man though.

It comes in a sharp looking bottle, but itís very light on everything else from its initial appearance in the glass to the final burp. Very pale yellow in body, itís loaded with bubbles that fail to support its rapidly diminishing fizzy little head. The light aroma is the "beeriness" of a neighborhood corner tavern. It tastes carbonated. Yet another pointless alcohol delivery system from a BMC.

Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with a big white head that lasts long. Aroma of dme, corn and dish detergent. Taste is surprisingly decent for a light macro brew however I understand why they donít make regular bud like this as people would drink less to get drunk and it also costs more to produce as they donít cut it with as much water are regular bud light. However I go away somewhat impressed with this beer.

One of the best "Light" beers I have ever had. So I think that Bud Light is pretty much itís own company now. Seeing as that this is not really a "light" beer with 6.0% abv. This is one of the most smoothest tasting beers I have ever had. Goes down like water. Gets you smashed very fast (because you tend to chug it).

22 oz bottle poured a clear light golden color with a thin cap of white head that immediately fell away. Aroma has corn, some grains, and sweetness. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation plenty high. Flavor is quite watery, light malt, grain, corn, and sweetness on the finish. I guess it is done in bud light style but pumping up the alcohol did this no favors other than the buzz factor.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
American bottle. Crystal clear, basically no head, gold colour. Chemical smell, sugary sweet aroma. Very sweet taste, apple juice, alcohol. Kept the light body of light beer, but has an alcohol burn and sugar sweetness. Overall, alcohol delivery system.

Can from a sketchy gas station. Pours sickly yellow with no head and lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma of cheap malts and old man sweat. Taste of Bud Light but with a more sugary aftertaste.

I honestly canít taste the difference between this and Bud Light. Love the claim of "top shelf taste." Thatís adorable.
