2.76/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

This is a smooth but "corny" beer. This corny effect may not exist after one of these, but on the second or third the corny flavor becomes overwhelming. The bottle is trying to take on a modern look, and I appreciate the effort. The palate flavor is fairly light, but the after taste is too malt liquor for it not to be an actual malt liquor. Drinkable, but not desirable.

3.25/5  rDev +27.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Nice clear copper/amber shade. Decent head that disappears very quickly. Moderate lacing and carbonation.

Smell: Malt and a hint of floral hops.

Taste: Sweet malts, grain, and a touch of hops.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a slight hop bitterness at the end.

The Verdict: Not bad. There’s no doubting that it’s a macrobrew, but it’s a drinkable one. The bourbon flavor it supposedly carries evades my taste buds, though.

Let's all face the facts. We wouldn't have bought, and tried this beer if it didn't have 6.9% It's an aweful beer, don't try to pull out flavors. I like the one comment about all the corn - that's funny - because that's what it is. I mean, compared to all macros, it fits the bill. And with the 1.9% higher abv than most macros, it's okay for the masses. It's basically marketed to the "club" crowd in their early twenties. It's marketed as "classy" and has a higher abv that bars can charge 7-8 bucks a pint. All the while guys with way too much cologne and hair gel think they're drinking something great in their futile attempt of bringing home a girl drinking pina coladas. Yeah, you know it :) I had to try it - because I pretty much drink every beer. But just another Platinum rip-off. Blah
