Good grass cutting beer. Thank to “cheap”, and I agree that the original Hamm’s is probably better “lighter, smoother and better behaved”. But, this one isn’t bad, serve ice cold for a crisp taste to this one. Can’t beat the price on this one.

This is the beer I keep in the fridge just to grab and drink regularly. I enjoy good beers but this is nice and refreshing for drinking more often. And at $13 a 30 pack you can afford the good stuff to go with it. It has a good light flavor and finish. This is the 'fat chick' of beers.... You'll enjoy drinking it but you won't tell your friends you did. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a can. Aroma is bread and corn malts. Flavor is similar, a little sweet. Well-carbonated and crisp. Okay for style.

Crisp, versatile, and refreshing, this beer provides the price tage of a Red Dog with the flavor profile of a premium draft beer. Hamm’s Special Light’s gentle aroma hides it’s delicate flavor until the moment it gaces your lips. This well rounded beer can be enjoyed by a vast array of drinkers, new and old, adept or novice. As legend has it, Hamm’s is the beer of choice among pilots as it bestows a fulfilling relaxed intoxication with minimal hangover. America’s classic, born in the land of the sky blue waters. What more can you ask for?

For a light pale lager it’s good. No foul funky grossness. Easy going down. What the he double hockey sticks else you want in cheap beer? Happy New Year!

old review - a little less offensive than regular Hamms, so a little more palatable. Has that classic swill stank though that non beer drinkers think of when they think of "beer"

From the 12 fl. oz can stamped Sep 14-15 on the bottom. Yellow pour with a fizzy white head that fades quickly. Carbonated to the max. Aroma of toasted biscuit, corn grits, and grassy hops. Adjunct typical. Watery-thin body. The taste is what you would expect but it is not horrible. Mild sweet toasted malts lead to a grassy, clean hop finish. Feels heavier than a light but the character is pretty basic for the style.

RSRIZZO (2021) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2015
12oz can (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into Shaker at 41°. It has a light crystal clear gold color with good carbonation and a loose white head. Aroma is faint with just a hint of corn coming out. It has a very light body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is as light as the aroma giving a very light corn sweetness up front and just a hint of bitterness on the back. After taste is clean and a little dry. Overall better then I was expecting but still just another bland Pale Lager.

From 12 oz can. Very little aroma. Light grainy flavor. Soft carbonation. Smooth finish. Just a simple ligjt beer. Great summer drinker. Tailgate or fishing beer. $13 for a 30 pack. Best light beer for the money.

Canned. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up light bready malts and light dusty notes.. just a hair metallic. The flavor found similar, picking up hints of corn.. not a lot to it. Light-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation.. OK flow.

Can: Never get tired of these beer league hockey brews that get stocked in the fridge. Last week it was Hamm’s heavy. This week the boys were trying to keep it lighter, I guess. I really couldn’t 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.
