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

Can: Never get tired of these beer league hockey brews that get stocked in the fridge. Last week it was Hammís heavy. This week the boys were trying to keep it lighter, I guess. I really couldnít point out a single difference between the two. Hell, there might not even be one. I took about 3 or 4 sips & decided I had more dignity than this. Astringent, heavily carbonation, grainy, metallic, lightly corny, & musty-skunky. That about sums it up. Pass on this ass juice.

I drink everything quicker than the average person (water, pop/soda, milk, juice, etc...)... when I drink it is because I am thirsty. Hamms Special light is for you if you are the same way. Other raters have complained about the head... or lack of head with this beer. If you like head, pour it straight on, and you will get a nice pillowy head. If you do not like head, put the rim of the can on the rim of the glass, tilt the glass, and you will get ZERO head. Appearance is golden with minimal bubbles (it looks like apple juice). The taste is EXTREMELY light, with soft carbonation. It is the perfect "yard work on a 100 degree day in the summer" beer.

I know this is Hammís but I was expecting a lager that was above the norm. Maybe something smooth with a crispness to it. Well, this is not that. It may have more flavor than Miller, but there isnít anything respectable here. It is what it is...

Headbanger (3472) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2014
12oz can 8/23/14 (Meijer)-46į in Lager Glass-Pours a clear light golden with no head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight hops. Taste of the same with a clean finish. This light bodied brew is not too shabby as I was expectim\ng way worse.

12 oz. can. Pours clear gold with a soft white head that fades to a thin film and shows good carbonation. Aroma has grain grassy notes and that is about it. Taste is watery with light grassy grain faint corn. Palate is crisp watery thin. Very drinkable.

Cheap drinkable beer is not hard to come by. Extremely Cheap drinkable beer, that isnít disgusting is. This is that beer. Itís so cheap itís practically free. Small white head that fades quickly. Pale as pale gets. Almost completely clear. Smells like wheat and alcohol. Tastes like beer... Small wheat with a hint of malt flavor with no hops to speak of. Who are we to question NASA and JPL?!? This is the ok stuff!

Precept53 (147) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2013
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.

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.
