This beer is trying to be a "real beer". the 6% scheme is kind of a joke. This beer smells bad. like really bad. it is pretty smooth but it still tastes pretty skunky. There is no fizz to it which is weird considering Budweiser and Bud light are pretty fizzy

Take a Bud Light, add some medicinal alcohol taste to it and a hint of metallic. Wrap it up in a pretty bottle that looks like a credit card and market the hell out of it as premium. My question to Anheiser is if this is the premium, than what the hell is Bud Light?

Anheiser seems to think that you can just relabel sub par beer and market it but the growing rise in micro and craft beers is finally starting to chip away at them. I hope the pace continues. because this is a less than stellar beverage and barely drinkable. I've had a bottle in the fridge for over 7 months because no one will drink it.

So my nephew brought a sixer of this over. Never reviewed it so here goes.

Completely clear pale yellow with a thin white cap. Lots of effervescence. The aroma brings some grain, alcohol, not much else. The flavor is really a disappointment, even plummeting beyond my low expectations. Perhaps a redeeming quality of a macro lager with no integrity is the drinkability, especially at cold temperatures. Chasing hot wings and pizza with BMC products seems to be a lasting trend here in America, which is unfortunate. Bud Platinum, however, offers no drinkability. This beer is a headache waiting to happen, and can only be tolerated at refrigerator temperatures. Why increase the abv on a mediocre (at best) beer? Because it sells. Stupid. Avoid.

Drinkin this shit on a metaphorically cloudy night. Out the bottle so no head, no color, aroma of faint pale malts, subtle cheap dry hop bitterness. Taste is smoother carbo than Bud Light, pretty much the same flavor as the Godhead (bud,miller,coors). I'm guessing the only things that make this beer better is the less crispy carbo and the slightly higher booze. Other than that, the brewery with its platinum bullsh, can go eat a chode.
