Very excited to try this one. Regular light was a bit of a let down, but perhaps this platinum one will be the beer bud light should have been! Poured a very pale yellow color with a thin white head that faded quickly. Aroma of rotten eggs and rice. Not off to a good start. Taste has some light sweetness with corn and some grains. Some rice. Overall I like the sweetness, but this is not much better than other pale lagers. Aftertaste is a little sweet with some corn. You were the chosen one, Bud Light Platinum! You were supposed to bring balance to Bud Light, not destroy it! PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Nominally better than Bud light, mainly because of a stronger flavor and aroma but it was a catch-22, because the green apple acetaldehyde of BL was ever more pronounced in this beer. Also, in malt liquor fashion, the beer had a coarse, somewhat tart/astringent grainy and sugary finish that really makes you shudder. Laurissa0617 (10) - Arlington, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Smells slightly skunky. Looks like some one peed in my glass. Tastes like water. Not a good drink. No thank you. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2012
The blue bottle Kroger.In red under the watchful eyes. A little yellow. Through its "Mom and Dad, I just see this is a huge white head, but it is long gone. Aroma a bit like the glass cleaning odor weak, almost particles, just a little taste, I really can not complain. whom, is unpleasant, but no real unpleasant, this is the only I’m not happy that their companies.

I really had to go outta my way to get this one!! Enjoy those BA hunahpus I sent!! Nose...what nose?? Not much to talk about. Flavor is light hop and grainy malt/corn. Sweeter than I thought. I didn’t think this was horrible but obviously it’s not my brew of choice.

This would be the beer if Bud light, Bud diesel, Bud Ice and Bud Dry had a baby. Pretty much a weaker malt liquor that isn’t as offensive. oobawa (1419) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2012
The best thing about this beer is that, when poured correctly, it can put out a fire. BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Yellow w/ small white head that actually leaves a hint of lacing. Has that light lager grains of nothing smell, with a touch of alcohol. At first it was what you’d expect from a light lager, metallic, corny, no discernible hops. As it warms though there is a funky chemical flavor to the aftertaste. It’s sweet, but also reminds me of model glue. It’s not good. I’d rather save $2 per 6er and get Miller High Life if I have to get shit beer. KlnuSftly (1) - - FEB 15, 2012 does not count
I am going to sum this up quick.......MR. BEER KIT, this beer is made of a hint of barley, and hops. The rest is a booster! Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
15 feb 2012, bottle. pale yellow, almost clear. clear, some bubbles. i think this is paler than bud light and it smells fainter than bud light. but it is a bud light smell; slightly sweet lager with the faintest bit of higher alcohol aroma. thin body and a bit fizzy. actually tastes blander than bud light, but there is an alcohol kick at the end. i really don’t understand this. it’s not worse that bud light, but oddly weaker in areas.
