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.

12oz bottle from Pickís poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale yellow with minimal white head. Aroma of wet corn, skunk and metal. Taste is light sweet. Corn, metal and sweet grains. Minimal hop bitterness. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, Iíve had worse. I would drink this over regular Bud Light, but I donít think the general BMC populace will like it. The blue bottle is pretty cool looking though.

Light to no aroma. Poured clear and straw yellow. Letís get right to it, the 6% alcohol. This tastes excatly how you think it would, a bud light with more heat from the additional alcohol. Overall not terrible, but ill stick with craft beer.

weird puple blue bottle. if this tasted like bud light i might have enjoyed it. super fizzy front and very weird sugar aftertaste followed by some hot alcohol. I guess this isnít supposed to taste good, just taste ok enough to swallow and get you messed up. i had some hope for this beer, not sure how i figured anything good would come of it. weird drinking stuff. well... off to school

Blue bottle, pours like a bud light. Aroma is sweet and sugary. Flavor is sweet, grainy malt, less harsh than its little brother.

wxman (1474) - OíFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Pours a very pale clear yellow with a decent white head that is gone in 60 seconds. Aroma is corn grits and a metallic characteristic. Taste is saccharin sweetness along with the odd nuances of a malt liquor. Why the f**k did I buy this??

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 Bottle. Pours yellow with fizzy white head. Virtually no aroma to speak of. Flavor is like an extremely watered down cheap sake with light hop presence, faint hint of alcohol, slightly sweet. Light-medium mouthfeel with very high carbonation. Almost hard to rate given that it is so neutral in flavor, so what do ya do?

12 oz cobalt blue bottle. Appearance is no different than Bud Light--clear, piss yellow hue, small disappearing white head. Aroma is corny, metallic, grainy. Taste is sweet--quite a bit sweeter than regular Bud Light--with a little dryness coming up in the finish. Body is paper-thin, carbonation is quite a bit lower than most macros. An improvement over regular old Bud Light, but this is still pretty pathetic. What are they trying to do, make Bud Light drinkers get drunker on their product due to the higher alcohol content, tricking them into thinking this is actually good?

Appearance is as expected. Light yellowish color, some head which dissipates quickly. Fierce bubbling. Aroma is sweet corn with some metallic essence... maybe some paper too. Taste is very light and quite honestly, not bad. Thereís a vegetable, papery weirdness in the taste but otherwise OK. 6%, low on cals, drinkable.
