Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own. Schaefer has been brewed in America since 1842, making it one of America’s oldest.

It’s hard for me to judge this one, as the nuances between cheap beers are subtle, and I tried this one months after having sampled any other cheep beer. My impression put it several steps up from Natty and Keystone, but it was similar in price. It was drinkable. I would put it several steps down from any number of other mainstream pale lagers, however. Kinda on par with PBR. My intuition is that I would prefer PBR, by a (very) slight amount.

My dad knew someone who worked at the brewery, and when I was a teenager, he would throw parties for us and supply his beer, T shirts, and all kinds of party stuff. So I have to give it good marks for "impression" since it shaped my pubescent years. But as an adult I have put away childish things....

Proud to drink a can of one of America’s oldest brews. Classic water corn grass flavor but just enough hop flavor to make it enjoyable.

The beer to have....when your having more than one. Aroma of corn meal and musty straw. Standard yellow appearance. Overall sweet taste with a little metal bitterness. Kind of crisp for this sort of beer. Pabst is the shelter for all the homeless brands...Oly, Lone Star, Old Style, etc, and has appropriately moved to LA. This one is okay for the low end, and I am sentimental about it.

Drank from a can on a tropical island. The beer doesn’t have much taste although it’s a bit sweet. Not very good.

Location: Can at Thirty Acres, 4/5/14

Aroma: Standard pale malt, grain, and corn aroma
Appearance: It pours a clear pale yellow color with a fizzy white head
Flavor: Typical flavor of the "style" with sweet malts, corn, and some metallic notes
Palate: The body is light, and it has a thin, fuzzy feel
Overall Impression: Not a very good beer, but not significantly worse than most of its competitors, so it has that going for it at least.

12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a decent white head. Aroma of grains and slight malt and hops. Taste very similar. This light bodied brew is not bad as it filled the void in High School as it was the cheapest beer the 7-11 carried.

The Father-In-Law had this one sitting about so i decided to try it. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright yellow color with an enormous creamy-soapy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy, sweet, corny and had faint notes of citrus and Windex. The flavor was corny with a dryish bite and a hint of graininess though was very mild and watery. Short corny and grainy finish. Light and watery body. Bland and inoffensive.

Honestly, this is the second worst beer on earth. First place is the light version. We use to grab this in college for about 30 cents per can (and I was in college in the 2000’s, not the 60’s). Light gold color with some fluffy head I guess. Aroma is filthy corn and wheat, dirty must, and vomit. The flavor follows almost perfectly and this is really tough to get down during a game of beer pong. Avoid at all costs.
