Considering what this is this is a well made brew. It is clean and inoffensive. Moderate aroma of hops and a taste to match. Canít beat the price. Wouf buy again!

Holy Hammster! Loved the Hammís from back in the day......always conjures up quaint images from college.....like collecting bottles and cans in the ditch to scrape up enough cash to buy some needed pleasure elixir to get through another arduous week of learning & suffering. But, I digress. HSL is the beer of choice for rocket scientists at NASA.....who else has 30packs of choice hoppy quality and freshness for $11.50???? NO ONE! So the next time you are admiring those bitchin rocket scientists down there at NASA or JPL....just remember they are trashed on HSL. And you can be too...for a miraculously low price....that just screams to the heavens: "How íbout a double dose of that bitch?" Thatís how I roll. Or not.

Pretty much a beer flavored water, but itís drinkable, refreshing and has no offending aromas or after taste.

Can. Very light sour malt aroma. Clear pale gold with a moderate white head. Watery sweet malt flavor. Thin watery body. Basically malt flavored water. Hey, why not? They flavor water with everything else.

This is it. From the second I swallowed my first sip, I knew it was íthe oneí. After years of searching, I have finally found the perfect party beer. Sure, there are plenty of acceptable ípartyí beers out there. Clear Creek Ice. Keystone Lite. PBR. The list goes on and on. Hammís Special Light, or HSL, takes the cake, however in all categories. For starters, it DOESNíT taste like shit!!! No face-twisting metallic taste, no nauseating hang-over after-taste. The flavor is, if anything, non-existant, so drink as much and as fast as you want without feeling overwhelmed! As a light beer, HSL has a fairly low alcohol content. This also means that whatever your drinking habits are in a party setting, chances are, as long as you stick to HSL youíre not going to get sloppy drunk and make a fool out of yourself, but youíll still get drunk enough to have a good time. At under $10.00 a case, one simply cannot go wrong with HSL. Prost!

Good grass cutting beer. Thank to ďcheapĒ, and I agree that the original Hammís is probably better ďlighter, smoother and better behavedĒ. But, this one isnít bad, serve ice cold for a crisp taste to this one. Canít beat the price on this one.

Can to English Pint. Pours astonishingly clear, pale gold... Foamy white head. Scent is cardboard box,wet corn. Taste is similar....more water, more weak grain. Iíd pick the regular Hammís anytime. They didnít put the Hammís Bear on the can.....not because today itís a politically/socially unacceptable marketing ploy......itís because he would be sad.

Looks as good as ony other clean pale lager. Smell is a little off but not bad. Taste has a little cardboard in ther but never approaches the cardboard of coors beers. Donít think this is as good os the hamms I rated yesterday. Cannot really find anything bad about this fairly mild lager beer. Has a tad of that pocessed feel to it. Yep, not bad overall. I think that regular hamms is even lighter & smoother and more behaved than this. 25 cents for a 12 oz can in a case of thirty at my local distributor.

Can. Slightly sour, stale corn/barley malt aroma. Pale yellow color with small head. Light slightly sweet barley malt flavor. Palate mainly water - just a hint of malt in the finish. On the positive side, no bad flavors. On the negative side, very little flavor at all. Almost worth the $2.95 I paid for the sixer.

seymour (1750) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Tasted from can into a rocks glass, which was more than I could stand. Light golden color, extremely short-lived white foam. Aromas of mushy corn bread and very, very, very distant, oxidized hops. Even less beer flavor than "original" Hammís, plus a bizarre, tart, sticky, long-lasting, artificial sweetener aftertaste. Just awful. I donít care how cheap this stuff is, anywhere itís sold I promise you have better options. Bleh!
