Pretty much a beer flavored water, but its drinkable, refreshing and has no offending aromas or after taste.

For a light pale lager its 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"

puboflyons (3230) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 2, 2015
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 (1972) - 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.

SteveOrz85 (232) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2015
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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2015
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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Can: Never get tired of these beer league hockey brews that get stocked in the fridge. Last week it was Hamms heavy. This week the boys were trying to keep it lighter, I guess. I really couldnt 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.

hokygolywundr (1) - Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2015 does not count
I drink everything quicker than the average person (water, pop/soda, milk, juice, etc...)... when I drink it is because I am thirsty. Hamms Special light is for you if you are the same way. Other raters have complained about the head... or lack of head with this beer. If you like head, pour it straight on, and you will get a nice pillowy head. If you do not like head, put the rim of the can on the rim of the glass, tilt the glass, and you will get ZERO head. Appearance is golden with minimal bubbles (it looks like apple juice). The taste is EXTREMELY light, with soft carbonation. It is the perfect "yard work on a 100 degree day in the summer" beer.

60minuteman (1429) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2014
I know this is Hamms but I was expecting a lager that was above the norm. Maybe something smooth with a crispness to it. Well, this is not that. It may have more flavor than Miller, but there isnt anything respectable here. It is what it is...

Headbanger (3942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2014
12oz can 8/23/14 (Meijer)-46 in Lager Glass-Pours a clear light golden with no head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight hops. Taste of the same with a clean finish. This light bodied brew is not too shabby as I was expectim\ng way worse.
