Bud Light Platinum: The Rusty Knuckle

Bud Light Platinum from Labatt Brewing Company (Anheuser-Busch InBev) pours a clear, light straw yellow with a foamy white head that burns off within a few seconds, leaving a small collar and thin film behind. This American adjunct lager smells like corn syrup and grasses, with a sharp metallic note and a very mild floral one as well as a whiff of alcohol.

I Can Think of Two Things Wrong with the Name of This Beer

The taste of Bud Light Platinum is very, very sweet with frozen corn and apple juice flavours. There is a perfume character behind that, but any subtleties are drowned by the sweetness. The beer is syrupy for a moment on the tongue, but is thoroughly watery from start to finish. There is a mildly bitter metallic note in the aftertaste, but the corn taste lingers beyond that and is somewhat cloying.
