I don’t know what it is about the smell of this beer that put me off so badly. It’s like concentrated frat-house basement. Certainly not the most offensive smell on Earth, but definitely something I don’t like to drink out of a bottle. The taste is corn with a smack of cheap vodka watered down to whatever abv this beer has. And it gave me such a migraine. Stick to Bud Light. Better still, stick to sobriety. Almost worse than Natty Ice.
12 ox bottle. Tastes worse than you would expect. The platinum must just be a marketing ploy to trap you into buying something that is superior, but not really. badhack (564) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 10, 2017
I'm not sure what they were going for here but this beer has some malt, corn and spicy hop flavor that is metallic, papery and has a hint of charcoal. Zymurgeist2 (2317) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 11, 2017
From bottle to cup. For starters, I found the 6% to be a little odd for a "Light" beer, but OK, whatever. Pours light yellow, but has a bit of a faint pinkish hue. The head is white and fluffy. Retains well. Aroma is grain. Not offensive, but certainly nothing rich and inviting. Flavor is cereal grain and a bit of a harsh huskiness in the back half of the palate. Thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. This was not terrible. Better than most of the macros, mostly because there are less off-flavors. Peterhogan22 (27) - - AUG 10, 2017
Like them to get more fucked up, the consistency of the good first taste ends and it's not that good.

I don't see the appeal to this beer, it honestly tastes worse than a regular bud light.

Bottle shared at Cotteridge convention 05/03/2016. Thanks! A very pale yellow coloure pour with a fine white head. Aroma is spicy pale grains, corn, adjunct, wet, adjunct. Flavour is composed of sweet sweaty pale grains, apple and corn. harsh finish. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation. Pretty clean overall.

Pale gold with minimal white head. Aroma has just a hint of grain. Dry with a suggestion of malt (and none of hops) and a nuance of raw almond. Finish is . . . oh wait . . . it is gone and left no traces of itself. PugUglyBrewer (742) - - MAR 23, 2017
In so many words, it is the amped up version of Bud Light that tastes and smells a microcosmic better than its legendary base recipe. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 14, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours pale yellow clear color. Very light malty flavor but really pretty bland. Best thing to say about it is that it is refreshing on a hot day, but then again so is water. Not great but nothing really unpleasant about it either. Basically Bud light with some extra booze.
