1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a pale yellow color. Smell is very mild, a touch of grains. Taste is very weak, beer flavored water, not much of anything. Overall there are better light beers out there.

Across the board gross. Worst beer in existence. Pours with barely any color and a bit of foamy head on top. Aroma is weak watery corn adjunct, hay, water, blegh. Flavor follows this with a dirty gag-inducing finish. Light on the palate and the only flavor is the lingering vomit flavor that makes this not drinkable even for beer pong. Handed it out to plenty of people who came to our place for a party though.

Schaefer Light is the hidden gem of American light lagers. This stuff actually has some body. Let’s be honest, no one cares about the pour - it is meant to be drunk straight from the can. It’s a bargain at about half the price of Michelob Light or Amstel Light which are the only two light beers I can think of which are better. The distribution is very limited and even in the midwest spotty at best.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12er of cans from a Wal-Mart near Lake Texoma. Consumed at Eisenhower State Park with a bottle coozie slipped on the can upside down. Aroma is metal, sweetness, and corn. Taste is metallic and grainy. Sure is a lot of metal in this brew. I was still very sad when the park ranger interrupted my dinner to make me pour out my last can of it. Very sad.

Schaefer Light has a thick, white head and a clear, straw appearance, with a pretty good amount of bubbles streaming up. Some sheet lacing is left behind. The aroma is faint, sweet, and mild, and the taste is likewise sweet and mild. This beer is surprisingly flavorful, even though no particular ingredient shines through. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Schaefer Light finishes crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. Overall, I was shocked that this beer had no foul or ugly mineral water characteristics. I’d recommend giving this a try, if you enjoy light beer.

Clear yellow with no head. The taste was almost like water with a little bit of fruit thrown in. This might be ok if you are really thirsty.

(12oz can, courtesy of mar) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, grain, and metal. Flavor of grass, grain, and corn that had been filtered through a dirty gym sock.

(12oz can thanks to mar) very pale yellow with a sparse head. Nose of metal, corn, skunk and funk. Did they seriously not line this can? Taste of dry grain, metal, earth, cracker, no sweetness and a soda-like carbonation.
