COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 2/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 2/20
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Appearance: Clear yellow straw under a fizzy white head which quickly retreats into a thin bubbly collar. Swirls bubbly but nothing special.
Nose: Powdered sugar abounds, especially powdered sugar coated lemon jelly candies. Sweet wetness. Wet straw and Wonderbread.
Palate: Sweet watery beer-like liquid with a medium-light weight and viscous mouthfeel. Wonderbread and confectioners’ sugar. Fizzy tingles on top of tongue.
Final Thoughts: Meh. Nothing special in this newest addition to Anheuser-Busch InBev portfolio that ultimately isn’t that high in alcohol in comparison to quality craft brewed beers with beefy ABV and far more enjoyable. Blech.

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.

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.

the sauger (90) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2017
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.
