Bud Light Platinum has reinvented the category of light beer. Within each cobalt blue bottle lies a bold formula thats 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.

BucannonXC5 (1460) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass at my house on Oct. 13, 2012 (purchased at Village Square Liquor & Kegs in San Diego for $2.99 (estimated, forgot to grab a receipt) on Oct. 13, 2012). Pale clear with 1 fingers of white head that dissipated immediately. No retention on the tops or the sides. Smelled bread, hay, cereal, corn, grass, light caramel and light honey. Surprisingly a bit enticing. Tasted like a stronger version of the smell. Could definitely taste the alcohol. Got cereal, honey, corn, yeast and a sugary sweet malt. Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt watery finish. Not a bad beer for the type. Shame on me for thinking it would be better. A nice change of pace from the boring old Bud Light.

Aggiebob (870) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 1, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2016 22 oz bottle. Light yellow color with a thin head. Malty corn flavor. Light bodied. Better than what I remember a bud light tasting like.

Theydon_Bois (17593) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle split at Cotts Convention 2, thanks to 3 way action from some well known deviants, 05/03/16. Pale golden blonde with a moderate off white head. Nose is cereals, grain, pissy notes, bread. Taste comprises light caramel, spent grain, straw, light melon infuse. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Where is the boost ???

chucklemation (1472) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Drank from a bottle. Aroma is sweet bread and some fruit. Flavor is a sickly sweet bread and a sugary, syrupy flavor. Almost boozy, surprisingly for its 6%. Well carbonated with a light body. Nothing great.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pours a nice golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor has a nice crisp taste with a clean dry finish.

The_Osprey (6841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottle share at Cotteridge II as Bud Light Platinum. Many thanks to Macboost and the West Midlands crew. Pale yellow, still, clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is malty, airy, ready salted crisps. Body is smooth, soft carbonation, quite light. Taste is thin malt, biscuit, crackers, soft bitterness. Better than most of the malt liquors tried on the day. Though the ABV is a touch low for this to be considered a malt liquor. (1.9)

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bought pretty much anywhere. Pours almost clear, light yellow. Puffy head that quickly vanishes. Tastes of corn, water, watered down cardboard. Feels watery. Overall? It just PISSES ME OFF that one of the biggest brewers LIES to the public about how great their product is. The fact of the matter is that the ONLY saving grace is that the beer Budweiser produces is CHEAP and easily drinkable with nothing all that offensive. Sure, this beer isnt horrible. Want horrible? Go get Milwaukees Best or some Old English 800. I will say the beer itself isnt horrible, its just nothing special.

Popoff91 (118) - Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2016
22-ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Very little aroma, little taste (and the taste that was there was rather gross), not particularly attractive in a glass, and overly carbonated. Didnt have too high of expectations for it and it delivered. How can they be allowed to have "top shelf taste" listed on the bottle?
