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.

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....

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2010
Can. Pours yellow with a fizzy white head, which dissipates quickly. Malty aroma with corn and grain. Similar flavor, with sugary grain dominating. No bitterness to speak of, almost. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes short, crisp and clean with some lingering sweetness. Drink this fella quickly and you’re fine. Good stuff.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2006
Light gold colour. Fairly fresh grainy aroma with light fusel notes. Lots of fusel notes on the palate, though. Otherwise a little grainy, watery. Fairly plain, inoffensive, sweetish corn lager. Fun to try, if for no other reason than to say I did. Thaks, Slob!

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2009
12 ounce can from State Line Liquors. Pours a light golden color with a medium head and lots of visible carbonation. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is grain and a bit of corn and grassy hops. Taste is generic grain with a bit of corn. Thin and watery.

Bottle from the Otown throwdown. I forgot there were actually 4 joke beers and this one was tied as the best...but still undrinkable to me. Grainy, corn, old faded hops. Yuck.

Now that is really a nasty brew....beer....or "beer"...it really can not be called beer for sure as there is not enough malt in it for that! Dirt cheap though. Weak yellowish colour, metallic aroma, no head what so ever, flat cheap flavour with a hint of some metal and something uncomfortable. Best when really cooled! Nasty, nastier, nastiest.......Schaefer.
