This beer pours a light golden color with a rapidly disappearing head. The aroma has a bit of grain, light lager funk and a touch of bitter hops. The taste follows the aroma. It has more grain, lager funk and touch of hops than your average macro American adjunct lager. It drinks very crisp yet smooth in its mouth feel due to its heavy, yet fine, carbonation. This is quite good for its category.
"Schaefer is the one beer to have when you're having more than one." This was the old Schaefer jingle line that originated in 1961. The beer was brewed by F. & M. Schaefer Company from 1842 on. This is yet another label now owned by Pabst, who bought it from Stroh's who bought the original company in 1981.
