16oz can into a nonic. Pours a clear pale yellow with a one and a half finger fluffy white head. Unfortunately the head fades away pretty quickly not leaving a whole lot in the way of lacing. It looks good for a minute, though. Aroma is on the sweet side with a strong corn note. A very light touch of grass but sweet corn is dominant. The flavor backs off on the corn a bit but sweetness is still present. A little more grass and faint graininess and more cooked vegetables. Bitterness is nearly nonexistent but it is there. The finish has a bit of sticky sweetness but finishes fairly clean. Overall, this is nothing more than a thirst quenching lawnmower beer but it does an excellent job of being just that. A little rough around the edges but for the price, it is hard to beat.

Headbanger (3051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a solid white head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was not the best but it did the job in college.

Aroma is grains and mild sweetness. The flavor is grains and mild/medium sweetness in the finish. Not really that much to it as far as flavor as expected, wasnít nasty though.

For $10 a 30 brick, what do you expect? Not much taste, slight alcohol, will get the job done after 5 or 6...

I can remember buying this for less than 10 bucks for a case and it did the job back in the day. Now...no thanks it tastes like the vomit I threw up in 1994.

Can poured a clear light yellow w/ a large frothy bright white head. Minimal aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light bitter finish. Tastes are sugar, corn and hay. Light bodied, and lively carbonation.

Onslow (1103) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz can. Lighter shade of pale brew, fizzy head that settles to a scummy scrum on the surface. Aroma presents the faintest hint of malt and a more prominent metallic tone. Taste is light grain with a metalic finish. Very light (weak) tasting. Oh well - a couple of extra points in the overall for motivating me to watch a couple of the old Hammís commercials on Youtube. In the early 70ís Hammís draft was my go-to beer - Iím sure it was better than this....
