    Schmidt is a lager produced by the Pabst/J Heileman Brewing Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  It should not be confused with the now defunked Philadelphia beer Schmidt’s, they have no connection in the least.  This lager is a bit on the thin side, and no…the cans with fish on them don’t taste like trout stout or something.  I guess that there is a hint of corn to Schmidt, it’s slightly smooth and has little or no head.  This beer is however, not as smooth and flavorful than other Pabst product( not to mention other brewers products) that you can find out there in the bargain aisles of your local beer vendor.  The best thing to be said about them is that they have neat looking cans with bears, trout, quail and other wildlife on them.  Perhaps this is the official beer of hunters/gamesmen or what, I drink what I kill!  All in all not a horrible beer, just not a very good one, unless you’re a can collector. 2 OF 5 briefcases.
