A classic bad beer from the land of sky blue waters.

Pale, straw colored body; plenty of lively carbonation; thick, fizzy, white head. Barely perceptible aroma of light, sweet cereal. Light grain flavor; white bread; decent hop bitterness. Light body; somewhat fizzy; crisp and dry finish.

Not the worst of (mostly) rightfully slammed adjunct lagers. There seems to be a smidge more flavor and body to Hamm's than most. There is little to recommend this beer for other than decent looks and an inexpensive price point.

My brother had this poured at a bar and I had a couple tastes because I hadn't had one in many years. Now I remember why. It doesn't come close to matching the craft beers I drink. It has a week look, week smell, no body, and no head. The only thing it has going for it is it actually can be classified as beer. Brothers shouldn't let brothers buy this stuff. Hamm's is not the beer you've been looking for.

Pours clear crisp yellow. No head.

Smell is grain, corn, sweet malts and slight skunk.

Taste is sweet with notes of grains, corn, and malts coming through. Its rather bland, but not bad.

Feel is crisp, light, and drinkable. Medium carbonation gives it some pop.

Overall a perfectly fine AAL. Drank nicely with the BBQ we had for dinner.

Comes out that familiar yellow of macro. White head that displayed impressive retention. The aroma was of mildly sweetened corn pops.

Taste gave more of that too, but still imparts hipster retro old school feels, noble prickly hops and high carbonation. I mean, these are enjoyable on a certain level. All the high carbonation and hop bitterness comes off as an enjoyable way to play some whiffle ball or whatnot with in terms of pairings. It isn't anything beyond some 6 row, corn, high alpha long boil hops and whatnot, but if you know what you're getting into, this does finish relatively dry and bespeaks to a simpler time.

And cartoons.

Light, clear ginger ale color with white cap and lacing.

Aroma of clean grain and slightly floral hops.

Taste is very clean, this is a well made beer, managing to be flavorful without the heaviness in the middle that some AALs seem to have. Flavor is not really malty nor is it grainy but a blend of the two in a way that neither conflict but sing as a duet. I don't detect much in the way of hops yet there is a bit of floral something in the aftertaste that finishes things nicely.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

When it comes to AALs this one is firing on all cylinders.

RobertDBase- Love your review. :-) I personally am a High Life fan because of the fresh bread aspect you were talking about. I have a few High Lifes and i start to get a headache sometimes. It happens with a lot of cheap beer or liquor. Hamm's Never gave me a cheap buzz headache. And its flavor was even better than High Life. I love it. 12 pack is like under $10 and only one liquor store in my town has it.

In a perfect world, everybody's drinking Hamm's. -Guttermouth

Searched for Hamms for years and finally found it. $13 for a dirty 30. I thought what could it hurt. Pours a golden beer with a nice head. Smoother than bud light and miller. This is the beer they drink in Valhalla. Be careful. They go down so smooth ice cold that I got down 15 before I knew it

Looks the same going in as it does coming out: off-yellow and a bit opaque (chunky). Smells like a truck stop bathroom floor, recently doused in trucker urine. Tastes the way I would imagine a viking feels before he pillages an innocent coastal village. Feels like doing battle in valhalla whilst reciting epic war poems. Overall: if you're looking for a beer that's cold wet and clear, made from the land of sky blue waters, Reach for a Hamm's!
