I have only drank this beer once. It tastes good but almost immediately gave me a splitting headache. Not the beer for me.

Very disappointing. Looked pale yellow with some foamy head, smelled slightly skunky and not that appetizing. Tastes of corn, malt and grain. Too sweet and that really hits you in the aftertaste. Not much else in the way of mouthfeel. Decent carbonation. I honestly couldn’t notice much difference between this one and the regular Bud Light.

This beer is amazing. Its a 6% light beer smooth taste, smooter than actual bud light.

I will have to go back to this one sometime and see if I can give it a higher score. Liked the 6 percent alcohol but wasn’t thrilled with the taste that much. Something off about it. I like Bud Light but something was just weird about the taste of this one. Cheers.

Very clear gold on the pour with some visible carbonation. Initial two fingers of white head crackling away into the beer.

The smell is a bit sweet and grainy. Other than that not much noted.

The taste is a lot like the smell. A bit sweet and grainy. Seems to have a bit more of the AAL taste than a light beer.

Mouth feel is a bit chewy and the beer finishes a bit slick and kind of hold onto the back of the throat for just a bit.

I will admit that this beer is actually fairly decent. Probably not something I would purchase again or seek out yet I am glad I tried it out. The aroma is very faint and the taste really follows the aroma. I guess this is maybe where the light term applies. My calorie count is stamped 137 per 12 oz. serving on my pint can. Not real sure about other light beers as I have not really paid attention to calorie counts on my beers. I would just reason out that since this has a 6% ABV that the calorie count would be higher than other light beers. That may or may not be something that could influence the shopper. Again a decent beer and may just fit what you are looking for. Cheers!

It goes without saying the beer world is feeled with amazing beers, but Bud Platinum is just average at best. It is a good beer to go with if your wallet just won't let you get the higher priced beer.

The one and only Bud Light Platinum that I ever had smelled and tasted like it came right out of a skunk’s butt. I truly did not enjoy it, and yet it somehow still tasted better than a regular Bud Light.
