This stuff tastes like garbage. I was given one by a friend at a party, and decided to give it a shot. It's way too sweet and pretty gross. Although regular Bud Light isn't too flavorful, the upside is that the bad flavors are all pretty tame. In Bud Light Platinum, they're even stronger and worse. This beer tastes like it's been filtered through a skunk. Let the frat bros drink this one because I know I won't ever again.

A good beer for emotionally distraught college girls who have never drank a good beer, but would like to spend a little extra money on a beer they think is premium but is actually the same shit as bud light.

Way too sweet . That being said , with a 6% abv and only 4.4 carbs, it's good if you wanna get drunk and watch your waistline at the same time

Like Bud Light but sweeter in a cheap refined way. One of the worst beers I've tried.
