One of the best economy American light lagers. Best enjoyed ice-cold.

Schaefer Beer is an old, old lager. If you are on a budget, then this might be the beer for you. Schaefer's is cheap, which if you are living in the NYC area, finding a bargain is a treat.

Appearance - Schaefer's look like your standard American lager. Nothing fancy. Nothing out of the ordinary.

The Smell is not overpowering.

Taste - Slight bitterness. No overpowering corn taste or smell. Not sweet.

Overall - For a cheap, old school American Lager, Schaefer's is an unspectacular, but unoffensive beer. It is a reasonable choice if your have a day of lawn work. You can spend more and do better, but for what it is, Schaerfer's is ok.

LOOK: As the can tipped, the beer poured a mostly clear yellow with a large fizzy, quickly dissipating foam. Some lace is left behind. The clarity is poor, as there is some sediment that just doesn't belong in a AAL.

SMELL: Corn, hops, must, bread. It smells grainy which is a perfect precursor to all the flavor.

TASTE: In the taste, grain and processed stewed hops, a bit of corn, but not terribly offensive to those not easily offended. Has a fair amount of bitterness for the style, so hey, at least there's that.

FEEL: Light bodied with a stinging carbonation and dry cardboard in the finish.

OVERALL: This is fishing beer if you like drinking cheap beer whilst you fish. Possibly even a beer pong candidate. Anything else is not recommended.

A great beer for a kegger, but not much else. The appearance is clear with a very fizzy head that disappears quickly. The smell is mostly rice. The taste is very light with a rice soda kind of flavor. Mouthfeel was very light. I knew what I was getting into when I had mine, and it worked well for the outdoor party being thrown. When the situation calls for it, not a bad choice, but by no means a great one either.
