look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear light golden body, topped by a modest, coarse whit head, which gradually fades to nothingness. Stick, patchy lacing adorns the glass walls. The carbonation is very slight, with only an occasional bubble rising to the surface.

Aroma: Lightly sweet pale malt, a mineral water note, and restrained grassy hops comprise the aroma.

Taste: Opens with clean, but quite restrained pale malt, and a weak flourish of hops, which hint at herbal bitterness. As the taste progresses, the mineral quality of the water seems to increase slightly, and there is a slight hint of alcohol. Finishes with a restrained hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Plain and inoffensive a decent value at typical retail prices.

Presentation: packaged in a sixteen-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at Spec's in Texas for $4.79 for a six-pack of sixteen-ounce cans, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

as to what amounts to 'bout fifty-eight pennies a 12 FL. OZ. 355 ml, and hey besides, i'm unemployed (since jan 2K14) and this is a tasty full american beer, thank goodness, that pours fine into a glass (of any shape, of any size) or, as i am enjoying it now, directly from metal can to hungry beer lipped taste receptors.
me likes hamms and will always 'cause the stuff just tastes good, gall'darnit.

Contrary to the righteousness held by so many beer snobs, there is no perfect beer out there. And really, what IS with many a beer so bitter that a glass of vinegar is like a soft drink by comparison, but I digress... For my money a beer should be refreshing and cold.
Straight up, Hamm's more than delivers on that... As ever, a clean tasting, non bitter, refreshing beer either by itself or with food. I challenge any beer "expert"/aficionado to put any of their gilt edge - trendoid beers up against Hamm's (or a few other "low rent" - pedestrian) beers in a blind sampling and they'll get a dose of reality. Some of these "lesser" beers, Hamm's most certainly being one, more than deliver the goods and do not drain your wallet.

Thanx "Hamm's"

At $10.99/30 pack, it's definitely best beer for your money. I live around a lot of beer snobs who only drink micros but I honestly think this tastes better. Real smooth taste either ice cold or warm. Not too much of a head. Not too bitter. Not too sweet. Perfect beer. Smell that brings back memories of old of my old man n his friends playing horseshoes. Perfect beer for those people who wanna drink a beer while hanging out in garage with neighbors or playing horseshoes with neighbors. Isn't that what drinking beer is supposed to be about? Top grade homeowners beer. Can drink a quality beer and still afford your mortgage.
