This beer has more taste than your typical Bud Light...more of a grain alcohol taste. Still, this is a watery beer with little taste, so if this is the same price as regular Bud Light, go with this one for the extra booze.

Bottle thanks to swalden28.
Just terrible - InBev is obviously trying to combat the recent craft beer boom with disguisting crap like this. Piss yellow pour, metallic and grainy. Cheap adjuncts all over this. Laughable.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2012 Umm, better than Bud Light... You donít have to choke as many down, thanks to the increased alcohol, but it also does seem to taste a bit better. Or maybe "platinum" just *sounds* like it should be richer.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. This was very clear ans "trle filtered." A bit of a white head. A malty nose and flavor. This was surprisingly boozy for 6%. Ok, I have had it.

The best thing about this is the blue bottle. Not much different than Bud Light in color or flavor. What are they trying to make, "The first FULL calorie light beer"? Bud Light has become the Mountain Dew of the beer industry, put liquid in a bottle and hope it sells because of the name.

12 ounce bottle. Pours pale yellow with a decent white head. Aroma of sweet malt and grain. Taste is the same with a bit of skunk. As already stated, the best thing is the bottle.

Really not that bad. Would much rather have this then regular Bud Light. The added alcohol gives it a heftier mouthfeel then the regular and makes for a more enjoyable experience.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hmm... Tastes just like the regular Iíd say. Lightly stale and bready malts are more apparent - making for a more filling brew altogether. Much better than bud light, and only a tad better than carbonated horse urine. Thatís right.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
What can you say. A light beer at 6%. Rather sweet, with corn and sugar in the aroma and flavor. Not offensive,but not much here.

Made a buddy buy it and bring it to my super bowl party. Pours like hazy water, no lacing, little head. You can definitely smell the fusel alcohol in this one. Taste is somewhat odd, couldnít really pick out the flavors, the taste gets worse as it warms, drink it ICE cold.
