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.
Can. Pours a clear pale straw body with a large fizzy white head from an aggressive pour. The nose is corn and wet grain with zero hop presence. The flavor is pretty watery and inoffensive, with a mercifully short finish. About what you’d expect from an old guard pale lager. I’ve had a lot worse.

355ml can. BB Dec 2016. This is not a great one, even when stale you can tell it was bad fresh. BeerRenter76 (1034) - Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Originally rated on 2/6/08- For some reason my great aunt loves this stuff, I tried it when visiting her and am glad to say the company was much better than the beer. This stuff really isnt worth drinking. Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours a very light golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew again filled the need in high school. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
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. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
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.

This is probably one of the best "cheap" beers Ive had great for a college party. ronaldtheriot (1993) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 8, 2011
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.
