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.

Smells absolutely awful and has a bad corn aftertaste. Cheap as can be though, so if that's your deal then go for it. Not any worse than bud light.

This and the Special Light are the only beers I've ever had at a frat party that made me say I'd rather just stay sober than drink another beer.

Puts other macro brews to shame. Yes, it's an AAL. But there's some hop bite in there and a soft almost-malty finish. At this price point, it's without peer.

This is a good looking beer. The flavor is a bit sweet but is otherwise balanced. Tastes of cereal, cookies, and grass.
