(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.

Diluted Schaefer. Pours pale yellow, smells putrid, and tastes horrible. Stay away.

its cheap, its a light beer, it has almost no head, its got some alchol in it, and its cheap..... its just a watered down version of regular schaefer, so if your poor fat guy, in need of a buzzz, go for it...

Can. This premium beer was a frat favorite at my college... and after drinking it you will most likely understand why someone could get turned off to beer in general. Probably the worst beer ever??

Huge thanks to Mar for sharing this American classic. The beer pours a very light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grain and nothing else. The flavor is heavy on the grain and heavy on the corn. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not terrible, but a beer with no good qualities. Avoid this one.

(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.

Well, tastes like a lager, but more like a regular than a light. I remember the regular Schaefer as being rather heavy. At least it feels light when it gets to the stomach. Like the Hamms I just rated, this may be scored a little high, due to the fact that I was working outside and it is very hot this weekend.

How about the avatar on this beers URL? heheheheh. Unfortunately, my light Schaefer came out of a 12 oz can, mostly unpainted aluminum. Isnt it something that Schaefer is brewed by Miller and the Schaefer light is brewed by Melanie? Ive had some good biker experiences with the regular Schaefer and was very curious about this lighter stuff. Ubiquitous pale yellow lager appearance. Aroma is a little unrefined and slightly volatile. Fairly refreshing session brew with little offensiveness. I am a little surprized, probably one of the better pale lagers Ive had from City. Lacks any of the ill effects that City Melanie has had on cheap beer. Cant quite figure it out. Finish is somewhat above average for a City brewed beer. Rather enjoyable for a lighter session if you are a lager lover. Finish is just about as non offensive as the Schaefer. Not too bad!

Ah yeah, I tried this from a can. The body was light gold with a large white head. The aroma was grainy corn with some grass and light bell peppers. The taste has some bell peppers and some light tomato. Not too bad.
