Picked up a 16 oz at Whole Foods Devon for $.99 how could i pass that up. These are the beers we drank as kids, this, Schmidts, Ortleibs (we were drinking Joes beer before it was known as Joes beer) before we graduated to Miller High Life, Genessee Cream Ale, Rolling Rock and the like. What a nostalgic blast this was. Thanks Joe at WF Devon.
And you know what, really wasnt bad at all. Drank from the can, poured a little to take a look. Light pale pour, big fluffy white cotton candy head. Nice. Bready sweet malts and even a little hops for balance. Decent mouthfeel. No off tastes, and a nice break from the usual hop and stout onslaught.
Overall very pleasant. I dont rate to style much (if at all), this is scored on its own merits. Just a good, plain old adjunct lager. And better than lots of craft ive had, yes i said it.

I've been drinking Schaefer for 48 years, from age 18 to my present 66. My children and their friends get a kick out of my still drinking the old-fashioned Schaefer. But for me their old advertising campaign slogan is true: "Schaefer, the one beer to have when you're having more than one."
It is a typical American beer. I don't think that's a derogatory comment -- American lagers suit my taste. They remain my favorite after 40 years or so of tasting ll different beers and ales from many countries. Schaefer closely resembles Budweiser, but Schaefer has a nicer finish for me that leads one to just reaching for another and continuing the enjoyment.
The appearance is a beautiful amber -- it makes me always want to drink from a glass just to enjoy the color. The smell is mild, pleasant -- here comes an honest beer. The taste: just a fine beer that goes with any beer food, be it steamed clams, hot dogs, hamburgers, steaks, etc. The mouthfeel -- again, it's a good-tasting beer that swirls nicely before it goes down.
Overall, it's a very enjoyable beer, especially when you're having more than one. It is an American, honest, consistent, well-done beer.

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.
