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.

Appearance - Pours a crystal clear, pale gold with a white, half finger head. Smell - Sweet, syrupy aroma Taste -A corn syrupy sweetness gives way to a slight alcohol burn near the end before an abrupt, clean finish.

Milestone beer. Rating #1700. Insignificant beer for an insignificant rating. I feel so insignificant. Remember the movie Antz? I do. Anyway, this bottle was gifted to me by Tcon, though he will deny it. He has denied it. This was purchased on my 26th birthday at the Foo Fighters concert at the gorge, and much to my disapproval, this was the sole survivor of the pack. All the others were drank. Amazing. In a way I guess. If I were to factor the concert into this rating, the story may be much different. Foo Fighters kick ass. This beer does not. Itís no Foo Fighters that for sure. If beer was rock music, this beer would be.. I donít know, some youtuber trying to do a bad cover of Pink Floyd or something. Malt liquor? Oh yeah, I forgot my previous rant that all beer is "technically" malt liquor. Apple juice color pour. Smooth.. yes. Water can be smooth too. It all depends on how thirsty you are. Same goes for the beer. Honestly I donít have any deScriptors for this beer other than that it just tastes weird. To me, itís what a beer flavored Crystal Light would taste like. Are you listening Crystal Light? Sorry, Crystal Light Platinum.

12 oz bottle. 15233. From a grocery store in Honolulu, HI.
Clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet and earthy malt in the aroma. The flavor is cardboard, sweetness, earthy malt and some mild bitterness. Bad and useless.

Can from Albertsons. Drinking this for an Untappd badge, period. Not expecting much. Normal pale lager look and feel, nose a bit maltier than the norm. Taste is sweet grain and adjuncts, not bad, mouth feel is fairly slick. Very drinkable, not much in flavor, but overall decent.

CapFlu (4910) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Light gold with high carbonation. Nose is more corn malt than the original. No detection of hops. Somewhat watery but a step up from regular Bud Light. Courtesy of my brother in law.

gramity (1582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
Appearance is transparent gold. Taste is watery corn pee. I donít like Bud Light, so the fact that this is 6% is somewhat redeeming. However, this is still an offence to good beer and Iíd prefer it was never made.

This brew actually surprised me. This is probably the best product AB has produced. It is light sweet and refreshing. This beer is a great choice after work on a hot summer day.

This is the socially acceptable drink for someone in a crowd of judgemental know-nothings. Still tastes like BL piss-water but has the potency to get you tipsy enough to deal with the likes of the closed-minded. You can drink it like water and it goes through as such. Ideal for lightweight novices but decent enough to fit in with the crowd.

Pours a light golden straw color. Looks like Bud Light. It has a head that lasts pretty well, probably longer than a Bud Light. Lots of little bubbles, and theyíre clinging to the sides of my glass like crazy! Lacing? Did I miss it?

Right from the moment I opened the bottle, I could smell something. At first I thought it was floral, but now I think itís just íunroastedí malt. It also has alcohol on the nose. Itís different. I donít know why Iím rating it as highly as I am.

Taste is very light, the lightness of Bud Light of course. But because of it, I taste alcohol, and I detect some hoppiness in there. The hops bitterness is countered by some sweetness. Itís pretty good. In no way complex, but it works,

Mouthfeel, yeah. I donít know what it is, but it just doesnít finish very clean. Itís light in body, but doesnít finish clean and crisp like Bud Light. Not that Iím comparing it necessarily to Bud Light, but itís not what I expect.

Overall, itís pretty good. After 22oz of this, and the alcohol is starting to kick in, itís starting to seem better and better. I like it. I would drink it again. I would recommend it. But if itís a high alcohol beer you want, there are better options. If itís Bud Light you want, then thatís what you should buy. If you want both, then íthis Budís for you!"
