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.

Padron4KM (566) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2012
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,

Bottle. Pours a pale straw color with a head that fades quickly. Mild Aroma is fruity, malt sweetness and grain. Taste of malt sweetness, fruit and grain. Mild bitterness and a sweet finish that lingers. Light body, smooth with a blah feel. Itís Malt Liquor, need I say more.

Virtually zero aroma. Clear, pale gold, fizzy without any head. Sparkling even. Tastes artificial, not necessarily alcoholic but like a diet soda. Slightly sweet, hint of a bitter aftertaste. Odd brew for a very specific audience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[6215-20140307] Tin bottle. Light apple straw aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. More apple and toasted straw in the flavour with a touch of sweet grass. Light body seems very fluffy. Not bad. (4/3/4/2/7) 2.0

Jow (2267) - New York, USA - DEC 9, 2014
So malt liquor was my least rated style and so in my quest for 10 of each I will occasionally mix in these horrible things as opposed to saving to the end. Pours dull pale yellow with white head that fades quickly. Nose is cardboard and grain and off fruit. Tastes of old honey dew, grainy, corn, cardboard. Ugly aftertaste. Bad times

12oz. Props for the cool bottle. Grainy yellow with high boost creamed corn. Flabby and sweet. Medium boost. Seems they sacrificed boost for... Oh no wait a minute. Bud light doesnít have any flavor. This sucks.

Rated base on notes taken 2 Jul 2012 -- Surprising flavor at first. But then I get that they just threw more sugar at this beer to up the ABV and thatís about it. Almost cloyingly sweet.

Unsure what this is supposed to be but beer it is not. Artificial sweet apple flavor dominates. Interestingly, the word beer does not appear anywhere on the packaging. Another one for the sink.

"Cool lookin bottle, Iíll give it that! Actually, itís not nearly as offensive as I thought it had the potential to be. Thatís faint praise, but still. Some sweetish malts (though suspiciously corn-like), and faint hops detectable. Low level skunk. Pretty generic, but not too too bad :)"
