1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Iíve discovered that a rat bastard friend of mine left a Hammís 24 oz can in my beer fridge (along with a Steel Reserve that I canít even begin to understand.) So Rate the Hammís I will. I donít know if Iíll make it to the Steel, but the Hammís could be passable....maybe.
Light color, flavor, taste, smell, presence...pretty much everything. But it goes down easily and I think the half I consumed from the can as opposed to the glass actually tasted better. Perhaps it was that it was the second half as well....

Can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks fine for what it is; a completely transparent lighter gold with white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells cheap and skunky with notes of corn ang grain; maybe a bit of metallic flavor too. Tastes like it smells with a subpar mouthfeel. Not good in any way whatsoever, but Iíve had worse.

Can gift from SJ. FFS. Watery, corn flavor, bland. Not much else to say.
Next time use more malt, more hop, and good ingredients.

Hammís. Hammís! Hammís?? I remember the TV commercials for this stuff back in the 60ís when I was a kid. Then they displaced Natty Boh on the Memorial Stadium scoreboard in Baltimore for a while. Something with a bear on water skis. Yes, I am sober. My kid bought a case, so I swiped one. Pours a pale yellow/gold with a head that goes away in a hurry. No nose to speak of, or flavor. This is an outstanding example of post-Prohibition, post-WWII American megabrew.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Appearance: 1" sudsy white head recedes quickly. Clear straw appearance, moderate carbonation present.
Aroma: some grain husks, corn sweetness, a bit of malt.
Mouthfeel: light and watery. Finish is dry.
Flavor: not a lot going on here. Mostly corn sweetness with a slight malt flavor. Maybe a tiny hint of hops in the finish. Nearly a drain pour for me.

Simple. Straightforward lager. What more do you expect for .50 cents a can? Clean, with super mild corn sweetness. A multi-purpose beer, when you just need something über-light. Sure it's like mildly sweet corn carbonated water... That's what's good about it. A mindless drink. No worries.

12 oz. can. Pours pale gold with a white soapy head that settles to a thin film of tiny bubbles. Aroma is grassy grainy and slightly sweet. Taste is crisp grassy sweet and malty with solid carbonation and some biscuit. Palate is thin fizzy and dry. I like for 4 bucks a six pack!

Bottle. HGT Brew club tasting night. I think this is one of the worst beers made. Looks like horse piss. Smells like horse piss. Taste likes horse piss. What I really dislike about this beer is the oily mouth feel. Yes...oily.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours gold with a white head. Relatively clean and approachable, with some faint grainy notes and a touch of sweetness. Tastes almost like a real beer, but not quite.
