Like any Bud beer, if someone like a friend gave it to me I'd drink it.
As far as spending my money to drink a Bud...Never!

Bud beer's are total garbage IMO. I was interested in seeing if these made an improvement...but I doubt it. If I am drinking a domestic beer I have to make it an ice cold Coors!

If you're honestly arguing if bud light, coors light, miller light, busch light or whatever other shit light beer is better than you've got problems, at least tell me you'd rather have a Sam Adams or a Heineken or a Stella or something fancy. But anyway, that Platinum seemed too sweet to me, like it was trying to be a champagne, didn't really like it, don't think I could drink the 12-18 of them I'd need to get a buzz on.

It kills me when I run into the guys who drink nothing but bud. I am sure beyond a shadow of a doubt there are some Bud cultists right here in this forum. We'll probably hear from them in this thread.. it will probably go something like this.. "Bud is the KING. I tried other beers before but they all taste like shit. Anyone who doesn't drink bud is gay. I've been drinking bud since I was 17 and will never drink another beer as long as I live"

I drink whatever light beer you put in front of me. Don't like any too much. Prefer a sprite and vodka or rum/coke. I can only handle a few drinks anyway so it usually doesn't matter

First Taste: Bud Light Platinum40 days ago
Without further ado, meet Bud Light Platinum. *The newest addition the Budweiser family. * I must admit, I’ve been looking forward to trying this beer. *When one of the biggest breweries on the planet makes a new beer, you can’t help but wonder about it.

The Basics:
Platinum is almost 2% higher than its middle class sibling (at 4.2% ABV.) *More corn was used in this brew to enhance the flavor, increase the alcohol, and maintain the light look and texture. *137 calories per 12oz. 4.4 carbs.

The Idea:
Bud Light is far and away one of the highest selling brands in AB’s portfolio. *Platinum is aligning itself with such recognition. Simply put, its the same beer you’ve come to know- just a little boozier & classier.

The Taste:
A little sweeter for sure. *The flavor has everything in common with the regular Bud Light. *To be perfectly honest, without a regular Bud Light to try side by side it’s hard to discern the flavor variation. And no, the higher alcohol is not detectable.

Packaging:
I bring this up for a reason. *Blue glass. After doing some cursory research I have found that most recycling places do not take blue glass for recycling. *That could be a black eye for the worlds largest recycler. * It’s sleek though. *It’s says “hey I’m classy, but I like to party.”

Overall:
The beer geeks will tear this to shreds for sure. *However they aren’t the market for this beer so its of no consequence. *I can totally see this selling well at nightclubs, golf courses, etc. *First thing that comes to mind for me is the benefit of the higher alcohol content. *When you’re drinking at sporting events at $8-$10 a pop, the 6% gives you a bigger bang for the buck.

More info should be available soon on BL Platinum’s new website – BLPlatinum.com, although it’s not active yet.

Agreed that all light beers and macrobrews are pretty much shit. That said, in some small town taverns, you have to choose. In that case, I'll take Coors Light anytime, solely because the can liner makes it taste like water as opposed to metallic water. I've always found Bud Light to be particularly nasty, with Miller Lite somewhere in the middle. Used to enjoy Bud on tap way, way back in the day, but the inevitable headache/runs the next day just weren't worth it.....

I tried it and yes it is good. If you like bud light you will definitely like it, tastes very similar just a tad bit stronger.

Believe it or not Bud Light is the best selling beer in North America.

people who put down the big boys like bud and miller remind of the music critics who put down top 40 songs.

they think the MAINSTREAM must suck.

They point to the guy beating on a bucket wearing a velvet suit and exclaim" you just don't understand the message, he is a TRUE artist, only a music lover like me, GET's it".

Bull shit.

The reason miller and Bud are so big is because they produce a quality product at a quality price.

Bob's butt munch micro brew would kill to become the next Bud or Miller, but he can't. His product sucks mule ass.

Boat,

I'm curious what micro brews you've tried? So if the police asked the search your van today there'd be only Miller, Bud, or Coors empties?

Nah, not everyone, I like Bud heavy from time to time (although Michelob is my favorite shit domestic beer). But I recognize that most other beers are better...I love boson lager, guiness, newcastle, sierra nevada...may imports. But sometimes a good cold Budweiser bottle hits the spot.

Of course I like steak better than a burger, but every once in awhile a burger hits the spot, ya know?

I have an old coke machine in my garage with long necks in it.

Nothing like a cold bottled beer on a summer day.
