Rainier beer brings together natureís 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.

Donít like it at all. I guess you could get used to it but why? Funny smell, weak attempt at flavour and thin aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2005 Itís been some time since I first joined the sight and went on a macro rampage rating all of them betweet 0.7 and 1.5 - however if you truly consider 2.5 the absolute average, this should be right around the average itís currently at; however, if we were to have a seperate scale for all of the macros, this would be right up there with PBR. I donít encourage anyone to rate this as though it were seperate because itís not, but just keep in mind that Rainier ("Ran-wah" as said by those who love it) is one of the better of the worst.

Smells funky but tastes OK. Typical Macro swill, dirt cheap and has those puzzles in the cap. Reminds me of Lucky Lager when I was a kid.

This beer sucks. I had this beer a few times last Summer as an intern in Seattle, but only when I was really drunk and didnt know the difference. Light and watery.

Had on tap at Long Beach tavern. Was surprised it actually had a head and left foam stuck on the inside of the glass. Your basic everyday beer. Nothing great but nothing bad either.

I had to take my car in for service this morning, so for some fun I walked down the street into one of those taverns that opens at 7 a.m. This beer was the obvious choice! Aroma was mild but hoppy--not high-quality hops, but at least there was some effort expended. Color a lightish gold with thin head--acceptable lace, however. Flavor and mouthfeel both compromised by excessive carbonation, at least excessive for the mild countenance of both malt and hops, which provided flavor only in the front of the palate--a curious sensation. Finish was essentially neutral with trace sweetness. This beer holds a place in my memory cuz my high school mates and I could get a half-case of pint bottles of this stuff for the same price as 12-ouncers of national-brand macrobrew, so it has to rate some value points here!

I drank this a lot when I lived in Seattle, and it was brewed by Rainier right there in the city. I loved the smell of the brewery when passing it. Must be consumed in Washington state to be appreciated. However, now that the brewery is closed I guess it doesnít matter. Better than Bud and a sentimental favorite.
