Hamm’s Beer Review. Your Least Favorite Uncles Favorite Camp Lager.

By Brian Lemay 100 comments

Campsite rules are different than rules at
the house. If your out of soap or a rag isn’t near
by a good old scrape of the fingernail, and a wipe on your shirt is all you need to clean
that spoon. And if you need water, it’s ok your spit
is sterile and the water pump is at least 20 feet away. Look it up. And you’re pretty sure you washed your hands
after the bathroom right? Oh you only peed, you’re good. Then there’s the rule about drinking. At home I believe noon is the preferred rule. Or 5pm if you’re a church goer, or you have
to pick up the kids. The campsite rule allows you to grab a beer
basically at any time as long as you check your phone first, your wife and kid are out
swimming, then tell yourself normally you wouldn’t but you’re camping right? Now to find a clean glass- so people walking
to the shitter don’t see you drinking directly out of the can labeled Hamm’s. It’s ok to use water here because you’re
not sure what this was used for. Now normally when someone see’s you drinking
a can of Hamm’s there’a an immediate follow up of oh I didn’t know that was still around. Alright let’s get to the pour. Hamm’s is an American adjunct lager, which
is Beer Advocate for a low flavor American yellow beer. It’s made by Coors, and has an alcohol by
volume of 4.6%. It pours a nice golden yellow… clear and
with moderate carbonation. The foam is like you would find in a bubble
bath at home. It dissipates in a few minutes if you wait
around that long. The smell is that grainy processed General
Mills corn flakes. You know like America. A very mildly sweet smell, a light yeastiness
some malts maybe. What about that taste. Just a light sip because it’s still a little
early. Best I can remember like corn flakes, but
ones with chemical sweetner. No real strong hops to speak of , but a little
bit of watery fruit juice. If you can stomach which is another word for
enjoy a natural light you can really enjoy this. The mouth feel, coming back to bubble baths,
lightly soapy- just light enough to add some flavor and a bite of dry carbonation. Now you might have noticed I payed off the
beer reviews for a few weeks, and if my timing is correct my last beer review today, finally
made it to 1000 reviews. Thanks internet! Also good news, it seems a beer company has
noticed all of my mediocre work and decided it would be a good idea to send me a Paulenrer
to review. Which is German. And if I didn’t pronounce that properly,
I’m sure I’ll have it down before I do that one. If you like this sort of review, and you probably
don’t- subscribe to my channel. Give this video a thumbs up, because maybe
you need to do something to even out cutting in front of the old lady at the liquor store. Leave a comment, thanks for watching.

When I was 5, mistook my grandmother's beer for apple juice, and took a big, healthy swig.
I've hated that bad apple juice ever since.

This stuff has always tasted suspiciously similar to Miller High Life; porta-potty/urinal cake aftertaste and all. I had falsely assumed that Miller made it. Any way, here is the recipe for a summer favorite. The North Lawrence Iced Tea: Combine 1 Hamms Beer, 1 Lemon Wedge, Ice and a Mason Jar in a semi competent fashion and repeat until you no longer feel like crossing the bridge onto Mass Street for the night's festivities. Maybe it should be called the weekend ruiner?

YouTube sent me a notification for this. Kinda odd because I unsubscribed on this account. After I clicked the video a survey on how pleased I was with the notification popped up.
I guess it means they are trying new ways to push channels and this one isn't being ignored. Just thought I'd let you know since I have never seen it happen before.
I watch your videos on another account, I heard that subscribers that dont watch vids in 24hrs 48hrs and 2 weeks hurt how often a video is shared.

Honestly I only drank Beer age 15-18. Then like nothing till 35 and then I somehow decided to become an alcoholic.. was that at 33 well doesn't matter. As for Beers though. Haven't had one in over 20 years. There is an American Store in Vienna. Should I check out an american Beer? They are a lot weaker than ours but the taste is supposed to be nice. I would love to check an american beer. What do you need to pronounce in German? Let me know. Great review bet.

My phone doesn't work in the mountains, so I can drink whenever. Usually bourbon, so I can spit on the fire and recreate the scene from Red Dawn.

My drinking daze are over, but I do enjoy these reviews. Hamm's beer is no longer made in St. Paul MN, but Cold Spring Beer is still made in Cold Spring MN. I grew up on a farm not to far from there. Oddly, the first time I drank Cold Spring Premium was at Mr. Whitekeys bar in Anchorage Alaska.

Wow. Your reviews of "shitty American golden lagers" (AKA the beer the entire world prefers (except Ireland)) are amazing. I've never put so much effort into identifying the flavors and am grateful that you do. Comedy aside, your beer reviews are actually fantastic. Thanks, bro.

Best German beer IMO, Augustiner’s Edelstoff. Actually, it’s the best damn beer I’ve ever had.
When I lived in The Netherlands, my favorite Dutch beer was Alfa’s pilsner.
Simple beer makes me calm, and I lose count easier.

My buddy is a Hamm’s kind of guy. Not even whist camping… just, you know, daily and frequently. He is a raging alcoholic and also not really my friend anymore for this and other reasons.

That aside…

I now refer to things that are not so good as “Sub-Hamms-ual” thanks to him. So at least I now have this because of him.

They use flaked maize to reduce the amount of actual grain, hence it gets the sugar needed for fermentation but without the depth of flavour and colour that grain imparts. Grain costs more.

Good ole Hamms – Schlitz (shitz) and Pabst Blue Ribbon . It got a Blue Ribbon for the worst hangover one can possibly imagine . Kinda like a Vietnamese prostitute beating the shit out of you with a baseball bat because you want your money back .
Speaking of Laos 1972 ? = Try a #7 beer made from pure Mekong Delta river water . We used to dig a 5 foot deep hole in the ground lined with wet burlap . The results you ask ?
You get a 60 degree "cold" beer which reminds you of why you were dumb enough to enlist . Don't forget those non filter Lucky Strikes and Old Gold cigarettes . It makes the ants on your dick feel like love bites .
Thanks for this video Knife Bro .
