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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Itís bid light only at 6% abv. I assume this will get me drunk faster during a ball game. Nothing really different here ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Basically a sweeter version of bud light. Donít waste your money. Slight taste of pinapple, this stinks.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix - Lake Ella - 12 oz bottle (actually blue.....jumped the appearance rating up from a 1 to a 2). Little to no head on the light golden pour. Twinges of metal in the aroma, some wet paper bag. Flavor has some honey sweetness, a bit of grassiness, some cereal-like graininess. Tastes like a malt liquor with the edges rounded off. Mouthfeel is a tad harsh. I can see this doing pretty well - "hey, itís Bud Light and itís stronger - just like Canadian beer!".

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 Gold pour with a fizzy white head. Head lasted for about 3 seconds. Awesome. Sweet grainy alcohol water with a lot of fizz, minimal if any lasting flavor in this one. A bit of citrus hops and just a touch of grape drink floating around if I really look for it. Maybe a bit sweeter than the regular, but I didnít notice much else side by side. Not sure how they pulled that off. Good beer, hope they make a chelada platinum version as well.

The aroma is rather offensive, lots of rotten corn and pee. The flavor contains some over cooked cabbage, tin foil, corn, and listerine. Im no beer snob I will happily drink a Miller Lite when in Rome but this is total junk. Bud Ice is delicious compared to this.
