Aluminum bottle (if its container is aluminum I review it as a can, even if it does have a bottle cap).
Pours out a clear, yellow liquid. I got a huge mountain of merangue-like head, foam lasted a long time, leaving thin lace strings. A few bubble lines continue up from the bottom of the glass.
Smells a bit like sour grain or other wet cereal.
Taste has some light grain, or other sweetness. Sourish, acidic finish. More alcohol burn than I was expecting, not too overpowering, but still present.
Light bodied, medium carbonation.
Trying to be objective...About what I was expecting - a strong light beer ?!?

Bottle purchased and drank at Kelly's Saloon in Geneseo, NY.
Pours a clear golden yellow, with a small quarter inch fizzy head, and a little bit of lacing.
Smells essentially exactly like Bud Light. Slightly sweet smelling.
The taste is similar. Very close to Bud Light, but a bit sweeter. The alcohol is boosted here, but it's noticeable. The sweet corn and grain flavors are pretty gross, and too much for me.
Light bodied, a bit heftier than Bud Light but still pretty weak. High carbonation.
Nice try, AB-InBev, this still sucks.

The time has come to finally review the lone bottle someone left at my parents house.
A- Pint glass pour from the blue bottle. Incredibly light color, an uber pale diluted yellow hue, clearly filtered. Small white head forms to about one finger in size and is foamy in texture. Cap retention is not very good and a thin ring leaves no lace at all. Beer ends up looking like juice.
S- Extremely faint and not much going on. Light grape-like/cidery fruit, bread and weak sugary hints. Really have to stress to get anything.
T- Hard to distinguish from any other Bud products I have had, it has been a while though. Bread and apple juice forward, not really in a pleasant way, sort of harsh. Yeast bread, rice adjuncts and something spicy (not sure if yeast or hops). It doesn't sound too bad but with any warmth at all, things just get more and more muddled and it get's more astringent.
MF- Extremely thin body with a ton of foamy carbonation and a light sweetness. Hint of bitterness but the overall feel is harsh, too much carbonation without anything else backing it up.
When ice cold this isn't terrible. Once it gets any warmth in it, it goes to hell. There is just an unpleasant spicy, adjunct flavor that doesn't work out. Not the worst beer I have ever had but nothing interesting here.

A bud light with a slightly better taste and a little more alcholol kick. Clear, little head but a better alternative than bud light if you can afford the extra calories and extra cost. Will drink on occasion when drinking light beer but still lacks the the taste of a Miller Light (just my personal presence). All in all not a bad beer for everyday occasions, just not up there with the special ones.

Got a 6 pack of Bud Light Platinum...
Couldn't wait to try it out. I guess should be awesome. Saw some guy downing them left and right at a party. Blue bottle looked cool. 8 bucks plus tax no big deal this stuff has got to be good right...
The taste was horrible tasted worst than most cheap high gravity beers. I cannot even describe how gross the taste was. Gave one to my uncle who drinks cheap beer most of the time... He started laughing at how bad the beer was and didn't even want to finish drinking it.
The smell was below average smelled like some kind of synthetic chemicals.
The appearance was cool in the blue bottle didn't pour it into a glass so I couldn't tell you the color.
Mouthfeel was mostly average kind of seemed like drinking a gelatin liquid if you can imagine.
The taste was so cheap tasting reminded me of camo black ice but worst.
