I had one last night. It's not as bad as I thought it would be.

I'm not worried about craft brew. What ever happened to budweiser ale?

Oh the catch phrases ... ugh... Even the mighty Guinness isn't above it... apparently their Black Lager is "Cold Brewed"... I called them out on their official FB page, but they didn't reply... They DID reply to one where I called them out on something about hops, but the reply made barely more sense than their original post LOL

I think they just have to attach a buzz word to it such as triple filtered, triple hopped, or cold brewed. I guess it subconsciously makes us think it must be quality if its triple filtered because other beers must be only double or single filtered, only single hopped or brewed warm...

Had it. Will buy again. Standard price BMC but 6% makes the difference.

SWMBO and I were shopping and she spotted some in the grocery store. She said "Bud Lite Platinum? What's that?" I said "Oh, it's probably just some hip new bottle or someth... oh wait... triple filtered? We better get some of that. Whatever the hell that means, it sounds good." She just laughed in my face and we kept shopping.

Quality?
Hear me now: Barring a quantum leap in beer technology based on fundamentally new science, a discovery capable of expanding the boundaries of beereality as we know it, a fundamental uncovering of core physical principle until now undreamed of - in short, gentlemen, until MAN ACHIEVES QUAD FILTERING CAPABILITY, Bud Light Platinum is the Brewing Arts most perfect creation.

It's just Bud Light in a blue glass bottle.

Yeah, I was watching those commercials on the Super Bowl while drinking my 1st batch of Pale Ale. It was also 6% ABV, had an amazing citrus-y flavor (Citra hops...yummy), only costs about .35/bottle...but it was hazy because it wasn't TRIPLE FILTERED!!!
