The aroma, I swear I smell banana bread along with grains and rust. The taste starts with grains but is overwelmed by isopropyl alcohol and chemicals. It was not a good experience for me, but I will see how it sells. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Very light pale clear yellow pour with sudsy white head. Semi sweet light cloying nose and flavor Cloying sweetness. It’s like a watered down malt liquor. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Extremely clean and clear color with a fair note of white lacing. There is a little vegetal and copper characteristic on the nose. A smooth taste with some slight metallic notes. This beer should still be consumed at a very cold temperature much like it’s bud light predecessor. 574deadzone (1419) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2012
What to say, what to say. Well, it pours the most translucent golden color. Nose is non-existent. Ok, i do have a cold, but still, there’s nothing there on the nose. Taste is...also nothing. Like, maybe lightly sweet, almost slightly tart, and no bitterness at all. Palate is like water with some fizz. It is a miracle of science how they got this to 6%, and I’m thinking there was some voodoo involved. I will say it’s better than regular Bud Light, but what isn’t? I will give them some credit for it not being nasty, but I’m calling a spade a spade: this is a scam. You’re paying for the blue friggin’ bottle. arone12 (929) - Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Looks like bud light! Smells like bud light! Stronger than bud light! What more could you want! The finest of the bud lights I would say! And in a blue glass bottle! Fancy fancy.

Bottle. Pale gold with a thin white head. Nose of light grains and carrots. The taste is sweet with lots of dough and even hints of mushroom soup. The finish is like sugared up corn flakes. Super nasty. JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Light to no aroma. Poured clear and straw yellow. Let’s get right to it, the 6% alcohol. This tastes excatly how you think it would, a bud light with more heat from the additional alcohol. Overall not terrible, but ill stick with craft beer. mkel07 (5988) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2012
355ml bottle. There’s nothing platinum about this beer except the name. Very light and watery in the mouth with a ghastly grain flavour. Typical mass produced pale lager with a horrible aroma and light pale colour and a thin wispy head. hef1985 (20) - cheektowaga, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Pours from a bottle with no head. Lightly golden and easily transparent. No different than that of a normal bud light. Faintly unpleasant skunky aroma. Light taste with a somewhat surprisingly syrup texture on the back of the throat. No aftertaste whatsoever.

Bottle. Finally convinced someone to sell me a single and not hold my nuts to the fire for a sixer or case. Pours gold, deeper than pale lagers, with white fizzy head. Nose was pale malt, corny, mild hops. Tasted pale lagery, corny, with some cloying sweetness and finishing hops. Indeed, this is like a Colt 45 with a bit more smoothness. I agree with a prior poster that said that you could save some money by just buying Steel Reserve.
