COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bud Light Platinum has reinvented the category of light beer. Within each cobalt blue bottle lies a bold formula that’s 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.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A clear one, golden in color and topped by a small, dense, white head soon collapsing. The aroma is rather grainy, some fruity notes blends in, but overall it’s rather boring and uninteresting. The flavor goes the same path, some grains and fruityness, with a little hint of bitterness added for good measure. Slighlty warming on the palate, quite hard carbonation, even though it’s not very much of it. Short finish. Definitely not my favorite. 130804

(12oz bottle, courtesy of drowland) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of mustiness, corn, and wet cardboard. Flavor of corn, cereal, and grass with a light metallic (platinum) finish.

bhensonb (11079) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from a SaveMart. Pours light gold with a transient white head. Aroma is sort of dilute malt liquor - the tall boy kind. Med Minus body. Flavor is grainy, and fortunately has little, if any, fusil oils. However, it seems gummy and grainy. It’s underrated. Not!

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Pours a pale golden color with a short lived white head. Nose reveals a striking similarity to Bud Light. Corn, sweet cereal, no hops, faint yeast, and minimal esters. Maybe not quite as watery. Flavor does have a touch of hop character, but otherwise your typical light/pale lager. Cereal and grain sweetness, mild yeast, and some water. Very high carbonation and very light body. I actually like it better than Bud Light.
