Smelled bad and taste worse. Bubblegum and a little fruitiness in the aroma (maybe grapefruit). Didn’t get any real hop or malt on the tongue, just some jumbled mess of crap. oddaroma (139) - Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2012
One of the worst brews I’ve had from A/B. Smells like cheap rice beer with added alcohol. The taste is like pouring a bud light into a glass rinsed with rubbing alcohol. Unless you’re just looking for a quick buzz, skip this one. Disappointing. Nickls (2535) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle. Thank you to friends that left 2 extras after a party. I’m not even bothering to pour this into a glass. From what I can tell it smells of light corn, white sugar and light fruit. MLt liqour flavors of sweetness and cooked corn, sugar, and fruity sweetness. Lighter body still that has some bubbly carbonation. I would rather malt liquour with a highr abv. saxo (18571) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2012
Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is pale yellow. Aroma and taste are malt, notes of hops and water. Platinum light in taste! boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a head that vanishes in moments. Aroma is absent. Taste is medium corn lager but not bad. Watery.

Better than Bud and Bud light combined. Aroma shows a hint of grassy hops. Malt character is there, barely, and not completely offensive, though there is some corny adjunct in there. Medium bodied. Clean crisp finish. I drank this is 104 degree weather in NC, and it hit a spot. Maybe not THE spot, but it did quench my thirst. beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2012
The blue bottle is pretty cool looking, but the beer inside is nothing special. Light flavor consisting of grains and green apple, with a slight alcohol taste to it. Musty smell. Probably meant for beer pong or something. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Pours your typical pale yellow color with corn aroma. This "platinum" beer is smoother that regular Bud Light but its a typical light beer. Nothing fancy about this beer. You can taste the higher alcohop content but overall its a fancied up Bud Light. juliskelton (1) - Rome, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2012 does not count
Great beer for the price & alcohol content. Be careful, easy to drink & easy to get a buzz! Cybercat (5841) - Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Well, what can I say? I was thirsty as all-get-out, and it’s hotter than a Wookiee’s temper here in Atlanta. I decided to give it a try. Guess what - it exceeded my expectations.
Crisp aroma is better than what I expected. It’s called Light, but it actually smells like beer! OK, not an outstanding aroma, but at least it doesn’t smell like water. It pours a rather typical clear, wan straw yellow with not much head. Flavor is nothing special - but as I said, better than what I expected from a mega-brewed light beer. Crisp, malty with a hint of fruit. Texture is fairly fizzy, smooth, average body. For a light beer, and a megabrewed pale lager, not half bad.
