for a spin off of bud light, this platinum is got a little kick to it.. i do not understand that it is still labeled as a light beer because its 6.0% alcohol by volume. But other than that, the color looks like bud light, the smell is very strong of alcohol in my opinion. The taste and mouthfeel is bold,crisp,clean and very drinkable beer/malt liquor.

Super clean appeal to the look. Very light straw color with a fizzy off white head that retreats quickly to a ring around the edges. No lacing to speak of. Inviting aroma of some sweet tropical fruits. The unmistakable taste of Bud Light lager but, there is an appealing sweet flavor that is balancing out the bitterness. This sweetness keeps me sipping for more and I find I am really enjoying this brew. Feel is watered down and not much in the way of body. Overall, I think this is by far the best light beer I've ever had. I understand it's Bud and this makes people dislike it because of the connection to "macro;" but I do wonder if those who rate it so poorly actually have tried it and with an open mind. Just sayin'...
