COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rainier beer brings together nature’s bounty from the great Northwest. Pure spring waters combine with golden barley and verdant hops to produce a beer rich in taste and texture. Fermented slowly with a pedigree yeast culture under tightly controlled conditions, Rainier comes forth with a satisfying malty flavor over a slightly fruity background, spiced with Chinook, Mt. Hood, and Willamette hop notes.

Cheers to Pdee for the can. Quickly diminishing foam above a light pale body. Aroma of corn, dough, light grain and green vegetables. Tastes of corn and water. Disgusting flavor.

Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Hope ya like corn.

If Bud is the king of beers then this would have to have been the Prince, well until the 6th of April this year when the Monaco leader passed away. Is this in poor taste? Yep, sure is. Just like the swill.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 The "new" Rainier seems a bit better than the Rainier I remember 15 or 20 years ago. Smooth feel with a creamy-like sweetness. Mild bitterness. Beery. Relatively clean. Kind of reminds me of PBR. Not undrinkable, but not exciting at all.

Ahh, vitamin R. It sustained us through high school and the summer of drugs and then left us with only the fondest of memories. Like foosball games of "losers shotgun a vitamin R", like long conversations with my dog, like losing my virginity to a girl who dumped me the next day, like my first raging hangover. Man, they had the coolest commercials though.

The Big R! A good drink to have when the bonfire has burned away all the hairs in your nose. And that’s about it. An exercise in masochism.

CapFlu (4820) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2004
(Can) Sampled the 5% alc from Delta, B.C. Pours a foamy, white head with a clear, over-carbonated yellow body. Nose of tonic and mild malt. Boring and watery... Not worth sampling again.
