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.

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is straw gold, head is 1/2'' thick, but dissipates immediately.

Smell is grainy, bland, corn, ugh.

Taste is all corn and awful grain - i'm going to pour out a portion of it.

Mouthfeel is way over caronated, too crisp and mixed with over sweetened - but not to balance or blend.

Overall, awful beer.
