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.

These ratings areal over the board. Understand that this is not a craft beer, its a mass market lager, it is what it is. Sweet grain dominates the taste, aroma is corn, decent pour with small airy head, very pale golden body with lazy carbonation. Not much of a finish, sort of evaporates. NW cheap lager, nuff said

Yellow beer that is everything I expected. Drink it cause it doesn't fill me up after one. I drink this when I'm in it to drink a lot. Great as a beer back to my favorite whiskey.

"Made Becks Sapphire seem like a mellow well crafted lager in comparison. Hot, prickly, flavors of corn and alcohol. Really really not good...really. I feel like such a whore."

absolutely terrible. pour is a piss golden yellow with a thin head that disappears quickly. aroma is grassy and a bit skunky. first flavors is of a cheap hay and grass but then the aftertaste sets in as a bitter coating on the tongue.

Can from Brewforia. Pours light gold with a slight white head. Aroma is very lightly fruity hop. Maybe a hint of pale malt. Med minus body. Flavor is very mild fruity hop with some lightly bready malt. Truly it is not so horrible as most pale lagers.

The best of the cheap beers, Rainier will get you through dark times. Not much else to say.

Clear pale fizzy yellow under a thin foamy head. Nose has some watery corn and basic lager tones. Flavor of the same. Corn, cracker, pale sugar malt.

Hmmm...Iím wondering where in Juneau, I canít find this beer. Anyways, here goes. Iíve had this various times in pint glasses and pilseners and this is reviewed from notes. The appearance was a decent looking yellow color with a strong transparency all about it. Carbonation was seen rising and filling less than a half fingerís worth of head that fizzled into the beer less than thirty seconds. The smell was grainy and corny. The taste was really only corny sweet and had a dried corn sweet aftertaste. There was a watery finish. On the palate, it sat exceptionally light and was mostly sessionable for the most part. The carbonation is there and is decent for the style. Overall, uh...American Adjunct Lager, did I like it, hmmm...its one of those poundable beers on a hot summerís day (which we donít get too much of those in Juneau, but anways). Uh...yeah, I donít really buy this stuff, but anyways, thatís what Iím sticking to and Iíll leave it at that.

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew fulfilled its needs in college.
