UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 Opening the hunting camp in the fall is a magical experience: the musty smell, the Hammís signs dusted with cobwebs, the brisk autumn air...The leaves crunch under my feet as my worries disappear in that Upper Michigan wilderness. An owl can be heard in the distance. Back at camp, the sauna and barbeque get lit, and a cooler of Hammís and ice takes center stage. The sun goes down, and coyotes howl at the full moon. I climb into my down sleeping bag, gullet full of Hammís. I wake up and have Hammís and eggs for breakfast. The road hunt is on, with good cigars, hardroll sandwiches, Waylon Jennings on 8-track, and plenty of ice cold Hammís.

Iím a long time fan of good, balanced cheap lagers. This one takes the cake. I got this from my fiance. She had a chest of random, old beers and being the Hamms fan I am I decided to pick this one up. Itís very flavorful for a cheap lager. Crisp and refreshing...if I could find this more often you have my word that I would buy a case of it almost every week. By far the best macro lager I have ever had.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2005 Who hasnít stood around a nice raging fire on a cool fall evening and knocked back a few ice cold Hammís? This stuff is legendary, and is the perfect compliment to some fresh Wisconsin brats and sweet corn on the grill.

You canít go wrong at $4.49 a 12 pack for this taste! Hamms Golden Draft has that old school American lager charm. This beer saved my life my last semester of college when I was broke as a joke. I think Hamms is comparable to any of the other popular beers (Miller or Bud products). I believe that marketing is the key reason people donít think of Hamms as a ípremiumí beer anymore. Bring back the Bear!!!

Hammís Golden Draft is very similar to Miller Genuine Draft in appearance, smell, taste, body, and even can design. It has been a Miller product since 1999, by the way. Hammís G.D. has a thick, white head and a very clear, yellow-golden color, with some lacing. Carbonation is very high. The aroma is almost nonexistent. Taste is good, with grain predominating. Some very faint hop notes can be picked up. There is a semi-sweetness underneath. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and this beer finishes crisp and refreshing. H.G.D. would be a good price-conscious substitute for M.G.D., and I enjoyed it. Iíd definitely buy this again and would recommend others give it a chance. This is not sold in Louisiana; I bought it on a road trip to Chicago in July, 2010.
