2.5/5 rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
12oz twist-off cobalt blue bottle, no freshness date. Labeling looks sort of cheap looking or at least the design is not so appealing to me.
LOOK: Crystal clear pale yellow, head crackles a bit but does stay.
SMELL: White flour, cooked cereal, carbonic, muted
TASTE: Crisp, warming alcohol, plain porridge, faint hop bitterness, light maltiness, slightly cloying
It's basically a light malt liquor. Lacking any real malt flavor and the cloying character it less resembles a beer and more of a very watered down cheap whiskey. There are clearly better light beers out there if you are into that. Now we all just have to wait for the half dozen fruit varieties that will follow it is does well.

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.
