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.

Damn annoying jingle, can’t get it out of my head. Not a bad aroma for the style, fruity. Flavour is very bland though. Overcarbonated.

No aroma whatsoever. Faint grainy taste, not much else.

A classic, cheap workingman’s beer. Slightly "off" flavor, not skunky in any way, but more of a burnt flavor. One of those beers that you will either love or you will hate. I love it, but it’s impossible to find down here in the Southwest. An acquired taste.

Definitely not a good beer, but if I’m going for a really cheap drunk with my friends this is my beer of choice.

Don’t 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 It’s 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 it’s 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 don’t encourage anyone to rate this as though it were seperate because it’s 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.
