look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A slightly aggressive pour gets me half a finger of bubbly white head that disappears in less than a minute. Body is a clear pale straw color. A multitude of bubbles is noted rushing bottom to top.

Smell is watery adjunct. Sweet corn and pale sweet malts up front. Light grassy hops in there as well.

Flavor is similar to regular Bud Light, but somehow slightly more enjoyable. Sweet corn and malts, vaguely bitter grassy hops, everything seeming rather watery.

Again, I can't help but compare this to the original. Body seems slightly fuller and more sophisticated.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

When pouring this beer it looked clear coming out of the bottle. I was a bit confused, not sure what to expect from here on. Glass filled, there is a bit of color, but mostly looks like water with some bud light splashed in giving a clear slight straw color. An aggressive pour yields a small head that in gone in seconds with no lacing whatsoever.

Aroma is a combination of malt and metallic notes. Thankfully it's very dull.

Taste is similar to the smell, a strong metallic taste which may be why they named it platinum. Has a strange aftertaste which is very hard to describe other than awful.

This beer is very carbonated; has me burping like crazy.

Overall this is one of the worst beers I've ever had. It's extremely hard to finish the bottle. Even the bump in ABV does not make up for it's failures.
