It's silly to attempt a philosophical description or review about this beer or any other in it's class. If you are buying it, there is a reason and that reason is you are looking for a good value beer. Schaefer Light is an excellent value beer.

Do you really care what it looks like when it's poured? Why would you even be pouring this beer?? Drink it straight from the can on a hot summer day.

Like most every other macro or American adjunct, the aroma is grain, sweet, some corn.

The taste is where Schaefer Light shines above it's brethren. It leaves absolutely no aftertaste at all, finishing clean and crisp. Extremely clean, absolutely refreshing. Medium carbonation, great mouthfeel, and completely enjoyable.

I know it's cliche or chic to say how much of this you consumed in college when your tastes were unrefined or that it's the worst beer in existence, but Schaefer Light is actually a great tasting, refreshing, value beer perfect for a 90 degree day, or when you want to put many back and don't feel like crushing a huge IPA with an ABV over 8. Very enjoyable.

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.

The beer pours an extremely pale and washed out yellow golden in color. There is a short and short-lived head of white foam.

The aroma is slightly sweet grain, metallic, slightly funky.

The taste is old cooked grain and some grass.

It is very refreshingly carbonated. The regular Schaefer is much better. This isn't terrible for a macro American adjunct light lager, but that only goes as far as it goes (which isn't far). Like most beers of this genre, it is better straight from the can.

The CANquest lives...
A silver can proclaiming: "Proudly brewed in the United States of America using the finest quality ingredients."
Uninspiring, clear yellowy liquid, topped by a large, bright white head. Foam slowly shrunk to a thin floating cap. Some whiff of cereal grain, mild sweetness. Typical lager flavor (however mild it may be), a bit grainy, some adjunct-like sweetness. Mouthfeel and body was thin and watery, slight sticky sweet aftertaste.
Average at best, nothing bad, as expected for a light lager. Thanks Woody
