This is a drop shadow.
Open your Styles Palette and you'll see a "Drop Shadow" style.
Enter your text in the manner and font you like, then click the "Drop Shadow" style button.
Note that you can modify those styles for distance, opacity, and blur. Double-click the layer name in the layers palette to pull up the Styles Modification dialog window.
