This poured with the roar of massive carbonation that built a huge head of light foam that dissipated quickly. The bubbling continued to course throughout the pale yellow to watery body.

The nose is of a stale malt and light corn with a touch of metallic aromas. There maybe a touch of piney hops and even a tinge of banana?

The flavor more or less reflects the aroma with sour, stale malts an a lovelorn flavor. The hop profile is fairly benign and this ends with a metallic taste.

The feel is surprisingly bland for as much carbonation but there s a harsh swallow.

BA puts a 2 as poor and I think that word is spot on.

Bottle: Poured a clear pale yellow color lager with a small bubbly head with minimal retention. Aroma consists of light sweet malt with well hidden adjunct. Taste is also dominated by sweet malt with no clearly identifiable adjunct but also very limited characteristics. Body is light with average carbonation. I actually drank this side-by-side with a regular bud light and I must say that the platinum is actually better though still quite bland in the grand scheme of things.
