16 oz can best before 12/08/14. Poured into a mug.

A: Pours a golden color, perhaps a shade darker than you bud, miller, what have you. Lots of tiny carbonation bubbles, the head was a soapy two fingers that hangs around and leaves some nice patchy lace.

S: Pretty clean all things considered. Sweet grains, fresh cut hay, a whiff of soapy hops, corn adjunct is there but is not unpleasant. Reminds me of a high life without the overpronounced odd cooked vegetable aroma. Smells like stereotypical beer smell.

T: Sweet grains, just a smattering of soapy grassy hop bitterness, maybe a bit if of lemon, clean, inoffensive, finishes dry. Drink it cold and fast, as it warms it becomes a bit rough around the edges with the adjunct grains becoming more apparent but still drinkable.

M: Medium and highly carbonated, average for the style with maybe just a bit more heft. Drinks pretty smooth though.

O: Not bad, makes for a good lawn mower beer. Holds its own for sure against more highly priced offerings in the style. The old school can is really cool as well. Comparable to Miller High Life, PBR, and Coors Banquet imo.

Being from Minnesota means you have to like Hamm's beer. Not liking would be like picking a Lady Slipper or dissing Bud Grant. We frown on things like that.

This is really the perfect beer for drinking in a smoky room with sticky floors, late at night, after you may have over-imbibed. The sweet corn is understated considering the style and it still has a discernible hop flavor and bitterness to accompany.
