Appearance - The beer was golden yellow with a bubbly white head.

Smell - The nose just makes me think of the spillage at a dive bar. The nose is light and grassy grains.

Taste - There are not a lot of well defined characteristics. The beer is a profile of grassy grains and noble hops. It is not overly bitter, but does run a little dry at the end.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation moves quickly to brush away the main beer profile. It is appropriate for the style.

Overall - For the style, this pretty much nails it. It might be the best American Adjunct Lager.

Hamm's the best inexpensive Beer on the market. Recently had Coors lite and compared it to Hamm's premium...not even close Hamm's won out..Coors lite was like watered down beer.

Pours a fizzy yellow with a thin white head. Smell is sweet with faint minerals. Clear and clean and easy to drink - not too corny for an AAL. I'd drink this in the summer heat if it were available near me.

I drink it a lot, not cause I want to but its very cheap. So it has a special place in my heart.

Not bad when cold, and it has that great old school jingle (search YouTube). I gave it an extra .25 pts overall for the awesome 60's 70's era marketing.

Wanted to try something different from the macro world, so I picked up a 6-pack of 16-ounce Hamm's for under $5. Cheap as beer gets, I imagine. Very light straw color. White, bubbly head retains well — for the style. Sweet malt and adjunct smell. Not much else. Maybe esters. No skunk, at least (although I do have a high tolerance for it, and even prefer it in some beers). Grainy, very light rindy hop bitterness with bready finish. Less adjunct-forward and honey-like than a Dos Equis for example. Light-bodied with extremely sudsy carbonation, and a crisp finish. I won't be drinking the other 5 in a hurry. May share them with friends who don't really appreciate beer when they come over.
