Lager?...Or more like a light pilsner. Looks tastes and feels like a very light pilsner. It's not a bad beer but im more into stronger tasting beers like IPAs and lagers, not a lager that tastes close to a very light pilsner almost like a seltzer water

For a cheap lager,this like Schmitz,can’t be beat.No after taste,goes down easy and just does exactly what it should do.This has become my go-to summer brew.Prosit!

When I was in university this was a beer (along wth Alexander Keith's) Canadians were proud of just as they were with The Tragically Hip. I hadn't had it in a long time since those days were long ago so I gave it the old college try. I was disappointed. First, the good. Nice thick, stubborn head along with sweet floral/citrus aroma marriage with a clear, pale straw yellow color. Enticing enough to make me eager to drink it....and then....the taste. I'm not sure what it was but not one of the better American style lagers I've had. Not much punch or bitterness but a weird aftertaste. Almost like I was drinking grass if it could be turned into juice. It did improve a little along the way but not enough for me to want to try again. I'll leave old school behind.

Very little head but carbonation was good. Crisp, clean taste that was refreshing. This beer is better than Labatt's Blue, but it has a sweetness that I do not like in lagers. Hamm's is my go-to for cheap lagers.

Weak flavor. Gassy. Not much to write home about.
