1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 For some strange reason, I’ve been intrigued by this beer. I couldn’t understand why it existed, nor was Bud eager to tell me. It took finding it in a friends fridge to try it. Honestly, it’s been a while since I’ve had a Bud Light, but this does seem superior. Slightly richer corn malt flavor with that same watery taste and crisp flavorless finish. The alcohol is well hidden for a macro of this quality. Really not much here, though you could easily do worse in the cheap light macro category.
Clear golden coloured body with a larger soapier head of white that shows at about 3 centimetres at first and dies down immediately. Aroma of grass, rice, mellow malts and a touch of caster sugar with little else. Light-bodied; Super grassy and mellow malt flavours with some cardboard, a touch of rice and a larger dose of grains right afterwards along with a good kick of lemons and citrus and very little else, but at least the beer shows absolutely no bitterness at all, only some dry malt, grain and a kick of pure sugar with just about no other flavours at all. Aftertaste is dry and grainy with some citrus and sugars and water with rice behind. Overall, a very subdued beer with no obtuse flavours at all and nothing offensive nor bitter at all, just some funky/gross malts and a mellow sweetness from caster sugar that gives this one any character at all. Not the worst beer at all, and showing almost no flavour, but that's okay - at least it isn't bitter nor offensive/pungent. I sampled this sixteen ounce pint-sized can purchased from the Speedway Gas Station at the Disney Boardwalk on 31-December-2017 for US$2,00 (the cheapest beer there) sampled in my hotel room here at the Disney World [Dolphin] on 01-January-2018. willisread (3803) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Bottle given by a coworker. Drank from the bottle. Sweet corn all over the nose and sugary corn liquid on the palate. Sweet and cloying. Undrinkable. Worse than actual bud light. I assume they upped the malt bill. Doesn't seem as thin as reg bud-light. Nah though. yespr (48916) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2017
12 fl oz bottle. Pours pale yellow. Small white head. Aroma is grainy and toasted malt. Flat malt and cornish. Bitter and toasted malty finish. martinrdz1 () - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2017
Not a bad beer overall when Bud Light is too watery you want something to pick it up Bud Light Platinum is that one beer when Budweiser taste way too thick, this is the one that makes up for them. chrom3r (2) - Monticello, Kentucky, USA - SEP 21, 2017 does not count
I'm not a beer guy.. Bud Light Lime is about the only thing I can even tolerate because I hate the beer taste but this....this is a drink I'd do alot for. For some reason the beer taste on here wasn't overpowering but delicate and wonderful. This is the perfect Football game, beer, meat, beer. I love it 10/10

12 ox bottle. Tastes worse than you would expect. The platinum must just be a marketing ploy to trap you into buying something that is superior, but not really. badhack (571) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 10, 2017
I'm not sure what they were going for here but this beer has some malt, corn and spicy hop flavor that is metallic, papery and has a hint of charcoal. Zymurgeist2 (2436) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 11, 2017
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. Peterhogan22 (27) - - AUG 10, 2017
Like them to get more fucked up, the consistency of the good first taste ends and it's not that good.

I don't see the appeal to this beer, it honestly tastes worse than a regular bud light.
