Hamm’s yes the beer from sky blue waters, Hamm’s refreshing, Hamm’s. Cripes, its been along time since I’ve seen this beer, and longer since I’ve had it. It pours from the can a panther piss yellow. A vigorous pour stirs up the bubbles, but not long enough to register a head that impresses itself. Thick, gorgeous Belgian lace! (true or false, the last sentence was not sarcastic). Adjuncty, barn yard aroma. The taste ain’t half as bad as it ought to be, mainly because its not got much taste at all. Sweet, corny, light bodied. Hell, I bought it as a lark, yet I’m not wholly dis-satisfied. Two dollars and forty-nine cents for a smoking hot six of Hamm’s, money not totally wasted.

12 oz can obtained from a local grocery (HyVee) and consumed a couple days later. Pours a one-finger white fiszzy settling head over a crystal clear very light straw colored liquid. Smells mild hop and 2-row barley sweet. Tastes watery. Malt sweet is very gentle. Hop presence is there, but it's amazingly low. As it warms I get some saaz and maybe hallertauer. Watery mouthfeel and sharp carbonation that's actually part of the taste profile (because there's not much here to taste).

Was at a party tonight and somebody threw a 12 box of 12 ounce cans into the ice tub. Common tactic used by clowns who most likely traded up to a more expensive product.
They'd been laying around in the ice water for a couple of hours, so they were pretty darn cold by the time I had one. Almost too cold, if there is such a thing. There were plenty of other beer available -- but I wanted to see how the venerable old brand was doing these days.
Drank out of the can, sorry purists, so no comments on the head. The beer itself surpassed my expectations. Sweet corn smell. Light, watery taste at first, followed by a burst of strong, but not obnoxious carbonation -- which led to a decent overall flavor. Nothing really stood out -- either good or bad. A good, well balanced lager. Nothing more, nothing less.
Remember when Hamm's was huge back in 70's. For a while, this stuff was truly foul. When General or Pabst owned this brand -- I really think they just mixed together some chemicals to make yellow foaming liquid that got yo buzzed. Today, I believe SABMiller brews this stuff -- and the quality of their operation shows in the product. Definitely worth a try.

This pours a foamy pee color—light yellow with lazy bubbles. There’s a light corn malt aroma with the classic smell of adjuncts. It’s not offensive but not terribly appealing either. The flavor starts off about as crisp and clean and it’s going to get—keep it cold—and rapidly falls off with a harsh, musty finish. About everything I expected from this one.
