Hamm's Special Light is a bit generous with the name "special", but for a light beer it more than gets the job done. I'd pick this over the BMC* lights any day, especially if you're looking for value in quantity as you can grab a 30 of this for as low as $13 and change.
Does it stand up to complex and flavorful craft beers? Of course not, and it's not supposed to. But to be a crisp, refreshing and easy to drink light lager with no offensive character, it's a win.
*I'm fully aware that MillerCoors has owned this since 1999.

A: Is this water? Pours the color of piss after you have drank a 24 pack of miller light. Straight clear. Watery. Off White.
S: Hate. Lack of love of the mother as a child. Watery piss.
T: Do I kill myself now or later? LATER! I actually think I am hydrating at this point. If you mixed Schwepps Tonic Water and a nice Sutter Home white wine together... you would get this beer.
M: I don't know I have drunk anything at all. The taste of water and wine that is so far from the blood of Christ that I am actually wondering if I should make the sign of the cross or if I should instead just turn myself into prison as Judas to my own body.
However... It doesn't last on the tongue long thank god.
O: Is this beer? I'm still asking myself this question.
NOTE: This is the lowest rating In have ever given.

A - airy white quickly evaporating head. Not much continue carbonation. Color of sparkling white wine minus the sparkle.
S - hay, aluminum, and self loathing.
T - like the thrice boiled dregs of spent mash. This is to beer what warm soda with melted ice is to Pepsi
M - thin watery
D - overall what I would expect and have had from third rate third world breweries. But this gives Milwakee shame on the level of "Milwakee's Best"

THis is a good light beer for the money. I can get Hamms and Hamms Special light as low as $11 a 30 and $5 a 12. For that money you can't expect much and you will be impressed with this beer for the low asking price. I enjoyed this one for a light beer.
Note: I review for the style. I refuse to let my prejudices slant any review. Nothing worse than the typical beer snob reviewing an AAL, same for your AAL drinker reviewing a craft brew.

12 oz can poured into a glass mug.
Note to self: Remember when reviewing this is a light lager – review accordingly
Hamm’s Special Light poured a crystal clear very pale yellow producing a bubbly and foamy bright white 2-finger head that had almost no retention and lacing. The nose is very light and clean with faint aromas of cereal adjuncts like corn. The taste is very low in malt flavor, and no signs of bitterness …like most light lagers. The carbonation is fizzy with a very light and dry mouth feel [again] typical for the style.
At $9.99 a CASE you can’t expect too much. I suppose it is true you get what you pay for.
