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.
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.
