5/2/12 Bud Light Platinum

On Monday night I made my traditional trip up to Dorko's Cafe in Mount Carmel. The crowd was of a fairly good size and ripe for the RZA's picking. The RZA was out for blood and by that I mean holding onto their coveted trophy. From the start the RZA could feel the two peat coming. In the end it came down to the largest slot jackpot in Las Vegas history and the RZA came away with the win with a guess of 3 million compared to the opponents guess of 80 million. Both were way off of the 38 million jackpot but the RZA still ended up being closer. The night was filled with fun and excitement and a new beer for me to review. So that night I sampled Bud Light Platinum. The temperature was nice and cold at 38.7 degrees with a small 1/2" head and a foamy white head appearance. The head dissipated quickly with excellent head lacing and  little carbonation. Th body was sparkling with a straw color and an aroma and taste that was a mixture of barely and dough. The finish length was average with an oily mouth feel and a middle tongue hit. The body lacing was excellent and overall I would rate it a B. I would say it is better than regular Bud Light but still nothing spectacular other than the increased alcohol content. The RZA will be on sabbatical for the next two weeks due to track meets but we will return after that to defend our title. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
