I really don't think this beer lived up to the hype surrounding it and the price is ridiculous. I can have a Milwaukee BEST Ice that tastes waaay better than this and is priced at an awesome $13 for a 30 pack.
I really did expect a lot more from the Bud Light family.. but I was sadly disappointed.

Bottle provided by my friend Brian, thanks!

Pale yellow with a white head that vanished also instantly.

Grape-like fruity aroma. Weirdly wine-like.

The flavor, strangly, is also wine-like, with notes of white grape juice. Better than most beers in this style, with more flavor. Though see my final graf for my thoughts on it being a light lager. No hop flavor at all.

At 6 percent, I'm not really sure you can call this a light lager, especially considering it has more alcohol than Budweiser. It's better than I expected.

I've never been a Bud Light fan, but I was curious about this one. I didn't wanna spend 7 bucks on a six pack, so I decided to wait for a double deuce to come out. Finally saw one at the gas station and picked it up. Boy I sure am glad I didn't buy a sixer.

I agree with the guy below me, Anheuser-Busch took a lousy beer and made it terrible. Pours out light yellow (probably why they call it platinum) and foamy as all hell. If you were to take a Bud Light, and pour two restaurant sugar packets in it, you'd have this.

I always try to find something good in every beer I try, but it's nowhere to be found here. I hate to slam a beer like this, but this is just awful. Not worth a dime, I'd take a Natty Light any day over this.
