1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Platinum pours a light yellow clear liquid with a fizzy white head of big bubbles. nose is malty and moderately of adjuncts. Taste is reminiscent of bud and bud light but with a heavier sweeter overtone like a malt liquor product. Not good, but not awful. Be interesting to try this and other bud products side by side, because I am not sure they’d be easily distinguishable from each other.
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 (25) - - 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.

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.

Bottle from Total Wine in Clearwater, on January 29, 2017.the sauger (90) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2017
Clear straw yellow color, small white head. Malty, sweet, alcohol, somce cardboard scent. Malty, grainy, cream taste. Cardboard, nutty, short aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Bouteille de 340 ml en aluminium (caisse de 12). Couleur blonde pâle avec un mince col. Le goût et les arômes sont les mêmes que budweiser et cie, mais avec un peu plus de goût. Pas mal si il n’y a rien d’autres à boire. Beer1997 (1) - California, USA - DEC 21, 2016 does not count
It’s Budwiser so I immediately judge it negatively. Once I tasted it, if I want a lighter beer, this is the among the best choices. It’s got flavor - unlike most of its peers.
