2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle. Poured a pale yellow with soapy head. Minimal odor but what I could smell wasnít pleasant. Tastes better than Bud Light, is less metallic. Will choose this over Bud Light.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz Bottle.
Clear pale yellow, with a fizzy, rapidly dissipating head, and no lace.
Aroma is wet grains, sweet dough, spicy hops.
Flavor is sweet, with a little metallic bite. Mild dry hoppy finish.
Sweetness builds as it warms, but there is just enough hops to keep it from becoming cloying.
Not great, but it has more flavor than regular bud light,

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a very clear golden color with a 2 inch head. The head settles quickly but the abundant carbonation holds a respectable white ring on top. The aroma is crisp and mostly cleanwith some hoppiness and adjunct grain. The flavor is remarkably smooth with a great balance of hops and malt. It does come out a little on the sweet side. Malty sweetness followed by bitter hoppiness. The finish lingers with a bit of a sweet aftertaste. Its definitely an improvement over bud light but too sweet to drink more than one. Drink it fast because it gets even sweeter as it warms. Sugar dumbasses. Now what do I do with the rest of this 6pk?

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured a predictable clear, light golden color with weak white head, no lace. Weak aromas and flavors of mass-produced light lager: mild malt, no detectable hops, adjunct sugars. Mostly neutral, not outright offensive, but just plain not-good. 6% ABV, is that the whole point? So what.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bud Light Platinum has a thick white head and a clear, straw appearance with few streaming bubbles, but a decent amount of lacing. The aroma is a combination of alcohol, sweetness, husks, and grain, and the taste is richly sweet (cloying), grainy, of rice, sharp, and fairly bold, with a touch of hop bitterness at the back end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bud Light Platinum finishes pretty crisp, clean, refreshing, and easy drinking. I think A-B/InBev may have struck gold with this one (or , should I say platinum). Itís a winner, and itís head and shoulders above the dull and flaccid Bud Light. I think weíll be hearing a lot about this one! RJT

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours light yellow and clear with basically no head at all. What little aroma there is is sweet with a bit of corn and malt. Flavor is also kind of sweet, not in a good way. Oily with a hint alcohol. Pretty disgusting. Worse than its lower alcohol brethren.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
wicked sweet cobalt blue bottle. pours a clear pale gold. they forgot to add head in the beer! nose is clean. very hard to pick up. palate is more syrupy with less painful carbonation than itís sibling but still manages to be fairly quick and dry. sweetens as it warms somewhat. flavors hint at white grapes and corn. this is great.. now i have something that will give me a buzz at concerts and sporting events! i hope this works out. when is "white gold" hitting stores? cubic zirconia? iíll be here all night folks.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Head falls quickly and pour is pale clear yellow. Taste is some possible hops, mild fruits, and straw and slight alcohol aromas. Flavor is smooth alcohol mostly with some sweet malts. This is one poor excuse for a beer.
