One of my favorites. Schaefer is the one beer to have when youíre having more than one. Schaefer pleasure doesnít fade even when your thirst is done. The most rewarding flavor in this mans world for people who are having fun.

Schaefer is a wonderful low cost brew. It is the ideal weekend companion when hanging drywall with one of your buddies.

A great, cheap beer if you can find it. Surprisingly one of the best beers you can buy for only 5 bucks for a twelver. You wonít be able to find it in your local tavern, but keep you eye out at your local grocery store. One of my top five best beers.

Nothing at all wrong with this classic New York beer. A fine example of an American pilsner. Light, yes - but thatís the kind of beer this is. I find it much better and flavorful than the big boys out of St. Louis or Milwaukee. Schaefer has a nice balance of malt and hops, some grainy flavors from the adjunct corn and/or rice grains, but still not as bland as Bud or Miller products. Shaefer is the one beer to have when youíre having more than one! For thos of you who still think the quality of a beer has anything to do with price, I wish you would do a blind taste test between Schaefer and the bland Bud youíre now drinking. I guarantee youíll prefer the Schaefer. Keep an open mind to cheaper brands like Schaefer, youíre likely to find a diamond in the rough.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2008 No matter what other people say, I refuse to budge. Schaefer is not horrible, and it’s better than quite a few craft beers and a lot of the pretentious garbage that Sam Adams is pumping out, except of course for Sam’s White Ale which is yummy. Schaefer is the kind of beer you can get a twelver of for 4 bucks, and you can drink every last one of them over the course of an MLB game and feel none the worse for wear. Beat that.

No Beer Snob here. When you think of an American lager this is a classic. Itís cheap, my friends, because itís not advertised - I canít remember seeing an ad for this in 25 or more years.. Itís a great session beer in my experience. Put some Shaefer on ice, get it really cold and suck it down on a hot summer day...

Schaefer is all you need on a summer afternoon when youíre grilling some burgers and dogs in the back yard. Itís nothing fancy. But as far as a regular cheap beer in a can goes, its better than Bud, Coors, and Miller. Hereís to the 12-pack attack.

One of the better old-school brands. Inoffensive, but not without its charm. Excellent for what it is, and for the price.

Some days it tastes bitter other days it is delicious it is an above average cheap american lager.One of my favorites gets a double row in the Beer cooler in the garage in the summertime.
