1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
In the can thanks to Hurrisnow. Pours a medium golden color (not pale) with a bright white head. My can exploded upon opening and gushed out. Bit of a soapy aroma. Flavors are an unfortunate detergent, metallic and finishing lemon sourness. None of these were likely intended by the brewer.
Can from Pat’s. Pale gold pour with white head. Nose of bready corny malt, watery taste, not good. pkbites (947) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2014
I used to hate regular Hamms but my father-in-law would leave some in the fridge for himself and I’d drink it just to spite him. Developed a taste for it. This is more metallic tasting than the regular version, so it’s not as good. But it’s not horrible either. Malty, hoppy, and inexpensive for what it is. jb43 (1650) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2011
(can 7/31/10). Clear pale yellow color. Small white head. Light grainy aroma, with very light sweet corn and citrus. Flavor of the same. Short duration. Light dry finish. Thin texture. Moderate to high carbonation. Spare lacing. ronaldtheriot (1936) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Hamm’s Golden Draft is very similar to Miller Genuine Draft in appearance, smell, taste, body, and even can design. It has been a Miller product since 1999, by the way. Hamm’s G.D. has a thick, white head and a very clear, yellow-golden color, with some lacing. Carbonation is very high. The aroma is almost nonexistent. Taste is good, with grain predominating. Some very faint hop notes can be picked up. There is a semi-sweetness underneath. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and this beer finishes crisp and refreshing. H.G.D. would be a good price-conscious substitute for M.G.D., and I enjoyed it. I’d definitely buy this again and would recommend others give it a chance. This is not sold in Louisiana; I bought it on a road trip to Chicago in July, 2010.

I’m a long time fan of good, balanced cheap lagers. This one takes the cake. I got this from my fiance. She had a chest of random, old beers and being the Hamms fan I am I decided to pick this one up. It’s very flavorful for a cheap lager. Crisp and refreshing...if I could find this more often you have my word that I would buy a case of it almost every week. By far the best macro lager I have ever had.

Hamms is the beer refreshing when you’re a poor sumbitch like my roommate. This is a slight notch above many cheap beers, but still pretty weak and corny. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Oh yes. Canned. The body was pale yellow with a thin white head. The aroma was meaty with bologna and lots of grain. The taste was grainy bread with some iced tea. There was also some raw potatoes. Drinkable, but far from a pleasure. spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Gold color with a white fluffy head. Aroma is slightly metallic and corny. Taste is a bit deeper than regular Hamms and maybe a touch sweeter. Good fishing beer when served ice cold from the can. 3Faveryrogue (181) - Aslip, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Just a really poor beer. I would take a cold Busch, High Life, or Bud can over this anyday. Even regular Hamms. Corny, grainy, over carbonated. Lagers suck, yada yada, we ALL chug them on backup or hot days. Drink another Miller product out of Milwaukee and this can’t taste too far off.
