QBCBC 1: Schaefer

Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can Episode 1: Schaefer Beer

Some know it as “the beer to drink when you want more than one beer”. Schaefer was bought out by Stroh Brewing Co. in the 70s which was bought by Pabst Brewing Co. in the 90s. It claims to “America’s Oldest Lager Beer” on the can. Not sure if this true, Yuengling claims to be America’s Oldest Brewery, but I guess they didn’t start with the Lager style.

% Alcohol: 4.6

Price: $6.99/12 pack = $0.58/12 oz. beer

Punch: 4.6%/$0.58=7.93

Color: Drunk Piss Golden, like a proper lager.

Aroma: not a very strong smell, lightly floral and very light caramel overtone.

First Sip: Very light and mildly malty, good carbonation, no bitterness, only a hint of hops

Aftertaste: Moderately caramel

Overall: This shit ain’t half bad! I can see myself buying it again. I’d take off points for the lack of any hoppiness in it, but there is nothing offensive about it. The flavor is very mild, which makes it easy to have more than one and not regret it.

Score: 7.5/10

  2. As co-founder of the self-created Schaefer Hall of Fame and Ring of Honor, welcome to the wonders of Schaef.

    Your opening critique of “This shit ain’t half bad” mirrors precisely what we’ve experienced from other Schaefer rookies as they take their first sip. Though normally we get “Hmm, ya know, its not that bad.”
