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.

If you thought BL was bad, this takes it to another level. A hyped up, more alcoholic concoction of the original that is incredibly popular with college frat kids. Smells like rotten beer; literally. Skunky, with an overpowering alcoholic stench. Appearance is average, pours a light amber brown. The taste is absolutely horrendous. Skunkier than BL with an obscene alcoholic overload. It’s like drinking gasoline, it burns. What little flavor BL had is washed out by the extra alcohol content. Fizzy as is the norm with Macros. Just a rotten aftertaste though. Metallicy, chemically nasty stuff. Avoid this like the plague. Awful, awful, awful. If anything, stick with regular BL. The only thing this accomplishes is intoxicating the drinker in a more rapid fashion.

From bottle to cup. For starters, I found the 6% to be a little odd for a "Light" beer, but OK, whatever. Pours light yellow, but has a bit of a faint pinkish hue. The head is white and fluffy. Retains well. Aroma is grain. Not offensive, but certainly nothing rich and inviting. Flavor is cereal grain and a bit of a harsh huskiness in the back half of the palate. Thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. This was not terrible. Better than most of the macros, mostly because there are less off-flavors.

Like them to get more fucked up, the consistency of the good first taste ends and it's not that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don't see the appeal to this beer, it honestly tastes worse than a regular bud light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at Cotteridge convention 05/03/2016. Thanks! A very pale yellow coloure pour with a fine white head. Aroma is spicy pale grains, corn, adjunct, wet, adjunct. Flavour is composed of sweet sweaty pale grains, apple and corn. harsh finish. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation. Pretty clean overall.

Pale gold with minimal white head. Aroma has just a hint of grain. Dry with a suggestion of malt (and none of hops) and a nuance of raw almond. Finish is . . . oh wait . . . it is gone and left no traces of itself.

In so many words, it is the amped up version of Bud Light that tastes and smells a microcosmic better than its legendary base recipe.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 14, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours pale yellow clear color. Very light malty flavor but really pretty bland. Best thing to say about it is that it is refreshing on a hot day, but then again so is water. Not great but nothing really unpleasant about it either. Basically Bud light with some extra booze.

Bottle from Total Wine in Clearwater, on January 29, 2017.
Clear straw yellow color, small white head. Malty, sweet, alcohol, somce cardboard scent. Malty, grainy, cream taste. Cardboard, nutty, short aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Bouteille de 340 ml en aluminium (caisse de 12). Couleur blonde pâle avec un mince col. Le goût et les arômes sont les mêmes que budweiser et cie, mais avec un peu plus de goût. Pas mal si il n’y a rien d’autres à boire.

It’s Budwiser so I immediately judge it negatively. Once I tasted it, if I want a lighter beer, this is the among the best choices. It’s got flavor - unlike most of its peers.
