Appearance - Pours a crystal clear, pale gold with a white, half finger head. Sub-par retention. Traces of microbubbles left on the surface. Spotty lacing with poor stick.
Smell - Sweet, syrupy aroma. Not much else.
Taste - Some initial grain and a corn syrupy sweetness gives way to a slight alcohol burn near the end before an abrupt, clean finish. Fairly Bland.
Mouthfeel - Light in body with fair crispness. Semi-dry finish.
Overall - About what I expected, though I did think there was going to be a little more bite from the alcohol. To me, the only redeeming factor this has going for it is the incredibly beautiful cobalt blue bottle. It gives off an eye popping, trance inducing glow that's very calming. I just might hang on to it for a while. The verdict? Better than Bud Light, but nothing I'll spend my money on again.

Just imagine Bud Light with 6% ABV instead of just a little over 4.3%. It still pours out a straw color with a fleeting head that goes flat instantly (and in a clean glass). The smell and taste of very neutral with no hops at all. As expected, the mouth feel is thin. My recommendation is that if you want something with 6% ABV from ABI, go with King Cobra as a 24 oz. can of "The King" goes for about half of at double deuce of BLP.
Overall this beer is perfect if you like Bud Light and want to "get lit quick". It's too bad that one of the coolest bottles around has to come filled with this stuff.

for a spin off of bud light, this platinum is got a little kick to it.. i do not understand that it is still labeled as a light beer because its 6.0% alcohol by volume. But other than that, the color looks like bud light, the smell is very strong of alcohol in my opinion. The taste and mouthfeel is bold,crisp,clean and very drinkable beer/malt liquor.
