beerbill (3331) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2007
12 oz. can. Pours a deeper gold than the typical american lager with a moderate white head. Aromas of caramel, corn, and malt. Same qualities in the flavor. Really not a bad brew.

Pours a little darker than most american lagers. Aromas of corn, hops, and you know the rest. Flavor is a little more pronounced in this lager, a little more bitter.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Uniquely bad even for the style. I am not a fan of any of Hammís beer despite being a fan of some similar brews. This one is too sweet, corny, overcarbonated, reeking of acetylhyde and watery with a strange after flavor. I found in hard to drink, which pretty much kills the cheap beer experience.

Not bad for an American standard...but definitely does not taste like it came from the land of clear blue waters.

I can't say this is there best rendition of beer not as good as the regular and as i can see by the other rating's,I'm on the same page as everyone else.Nice golden color,slight head,weak flavor of water and small hop taste nothing special but will do the trick on a hot summer day.

I donít know what overcame me, but while I was grocery shopping yesterday I found myself on a mission to buy the cheapest beer I could find! This little guy had the worst aromas Iíve smelled in a long time... diacetyls, DMS & adjuncts abound with a sweet candy-corn and cardboard persona. It appears more "pale yellow" than "golden" with plenty of carbonation and a fast, white head. Corn and tin can flavors are supported in a sickly-sweet palate that makes sure to coat your mouth so the experience can linger. Listen to yoí mama when she tells you, "You get what you pay for!!!"

Iím tempted to take a new photo for this page, but I really like the store sign thatís pictured, regardless of its resolution. (Iím surprised the Hamms bear didnít die years ago... if heís promoting beers like this one heís prone to making some really bad judgment calls.)

Reid (1855) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Bought in the 12 oz can...Nice simple black,red and gold design. Not a bad looking macro lager, clear,bright golden yellow with a nice sized frothy white head..that doesnt last too long.Some carbonation visible. Nice "clean" aroma..mostly of malts but some hop detetcted. Taste is actually not too bad for a macro..malty sweetness up front followed by a sort of bitter astringency ( though its not unpleasant)..that may be the hops. Sort of watery in the mouth..has a dry finish. I was pleasantly surprised by this cheap beer..hell it is not what I would call a good beer..but its a perfectly acceptable American macro.

Hmm. Iím not going to pour this one into a glass, so Iím going to tell you what I think it looks like. Clear gold/dark yellow. Small wispy head and lacing. Nose of strong corn and grains. Grassy hops. Weak alcohol aromas. Again, the flavor is pretty much the same as the nose. Lots of corn and grainy characters. The hops are now slightly bitter and a little bit sour. The mouthfeel is watery and the flavors donít last long enough, but are there too long if you know what I mean.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 The 24K beer. I like it. What can I say. Its a classic american beer than has a solid taste.
