"itís starting to get relly hard to differentiate between all these nasty pale lagers. This one was slighlty more bearable than some others. Not exactly a ringing endorsement."

In an airport heading to Germany during Oktoberfest and heading through Belgium on my way back home. What better beer to have to set my palet to shitty American lager? Done and done.

Typical cheap beer taste. Taste like a watered down bowl of sauerkraut with a hint of hops.

Can. I used to hate this stuff. My father-in-law used to leave some in the fridge when heís come here to do work I didnít ask him to do. At night Iíd drink it just to spite him. And whatta you know! I developed a taste for it. Aroma is metallic corn water. Pour is *slightly* darker yellow with a thick head that lasts a good long time and leaves a surprising amount of lacing on the glass. Flavor is slightly soury, but shockingly malty! Ample hops too. I paid $3.89 for a sixer of pints. For that price this is absolutely one of the best "cheap beers" out there. Iím not saying itís great, Iím saying adjusted for price itís a pretty good hoppy and malty brew for the money.

No retention and light lacing. Smells of corn and straw. Tastes of vegetable and corn. No aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My college roommates made me drink this stuff because they were too cheap to drink anything else. Of course, in 1980 Indiana, there wasnít much better than this anyway.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, corn, and water. No metallic taste. Very thin. Drinkable.

The greatest bad beer on the planet. If you rate it against other cheap adjunct American lagers itís hard to beat.

16 oz. tall boy can served in a shaker (6pack)- poured a transparent thin yellow color, one finger foamy white head formed, did not lace at all, but did last for more than a moment (start up computer, have a smoke, take dog out). Aroma of hard water, corn, and sugar. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt has to be at least 60% corn, middle is watery, finish has an ever so light hop acidity- but you really have to find it. For $4 a sixer at HESleeze, itíll work. Hidden bonus is that 8 years ago, the old lady and I went to the waterfall featured in the 60ís commerical while on our honeymoon.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a bubbly white head that quickly died into oblivion. The smell had a sweet corn with toast all around. The taste was mainly the same thing. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a somewhat decent sessionable quality to it. Overall, well Iíve heard that some say you havenít lived until you tried a Hammís...Iím not sure how I feel about that line...
