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.

Real good cheap beer. Pabst will not put any money behind it for promotion and no insentives for retailers. The regular Schaefer is as good as a good light beer, the light Schaefer is not that great, too light.

Not a problem getting up in the northeast but southern states can be a challange

Schaefer Hall of Fame likes the taste, easy drinking cold only. Use a cozy and prepare to drive to find it.
