*Full Disclosure* - I am drinking some of this as I write this review Purchased at a C-Town for $8.49 per 6-pack-
I first had this during the black-out "Harbowl" where the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers. We were at my friends house in his man cave and someone brought 2 cases of this stuff over.

At first glance I was attracted by the beautiful blue bottle, and since it was the only beer available i said sure why not. Two hours later we are were all nicely buzzed from this beer and astonished that this "bud light" had rendered us in this state.

For the price, ease of availability, and the surprise 6%ABV I give this beer high marks.

Bud Light Platinum gets the job done and recommend you all to try it; even if merely to lubricate the esophagus before you move on to some of your favorite imports =-)

Cheers,

St. Anthony

Bud Light Platinum pours a pale gold with a thick white head from a twelve ounce cobalt blue bottle. The aroma is a bit sweet and grainy. There is more flavor than I expected, apple like flavor pops out at me. Maybe a touch of alcohol even. The aftertaste is unpleasant. Not one I particularly care for, I'd avoid this one.

Anticipating a light tasting ice beer... not expecting too much. Thinking this beer is all about the clever marketing gimmicks from the powers that beer.

Picked up a bottle, aluminum bottle... bottle was stupidly cold, not very comfortable to hold for a very long time. Poured bottle into a gobblet...

Liquid flowed from the bottle, poured a very, very pale yellow... almost a very light tan. Smell of sweet corny malts lit up my personal space. Bit of head sat on top of the beer, but quickly dissipated. Bubbles ablaze, reminiscent of a typical American macro lager.

Taste was sweet, almost corny... Couldnt get past the sweetness- from the touch of the tongue, to the moments after the swallow. Not much of an after taste, little bit of malty/ corny sweetness sitting on the back of my tongue.

Overall, sweeter than anticipated- didn't expect much, didn't get much.

I had a bottle of this, it was pretty average for the style, the only thing going for it really is an increased abv threshold. I think for the price it isn't bad, but it really doesn't have much in the way of flavor beyond a corn pop type sweetness. I can't say it is really a flawed beer meaning having noticeable flavor deficiencies unless you consider lack of flavor one, then it is pretty bland which is why I gave it a below average score
