COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Appearance holds a light yellow golden color supporting a crisp dissipating head leaving spotty lace. Smell and taste has of light malt and grain with a mild hop finishing fairly clean. Mouthfeel is light with a good spike of carbonation. A refreshing easy drinker.

Squizzle (138) - Idaho, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Iíve been drinking Rainier since Iíve been drinking. When I was younger it used to come in 16 oz "pounders". Those days are gone but if its around Iíll still drink it. Its also great for drinking games.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Oldmanbrau. 355ml can. 5%. Plain, flavourless, clear yellow fizz. Great for NASCAR fans in 40+ weather, or people whose palate has been destroyed by chain smoking. Not much use otherwise.

Hanuta06 (327) - Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Serving: from can--purchased at QFC. Aroma: grassy hops. Appearance: small, frothy, white, initial head with no lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, light-yellow body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with short duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: a living Seattle legend (but now brewed in California). Still tastes okay on a hot day.

Smells like grass, taste like grass. Not a hop in sight. Not offensive. Easy drinking and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hayduke (3380) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Can poured a clear yellow with a quick fading white head. Nose of corn and some citrus. Light body. Think mouth feel. Flavor is corn and finish is light citrus. Macro lager.

downy_dav69 (60) - Ladysmith, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
355 ml. Can. Pours a clear gold yellow, head dissipates very quickly. Aroma is metallic with some hints of corn. Taste is somewhat of corn, metal, and malt- very watered down; could hardly taste any hops at all. There is really nothing to this beer. Quite possibly the worst beer Iíve ever had the unpleasant experience of tasting. I find it remarkable that a beer this horrible actually exists. Never again.

douglas88 (6042) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2013
On tap at the Mountain Brewers Festival 2013. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A basic lager nose with some light earthiness and honey. The flavor is clean for the most part, light earthy grains, no hops detected. Drinkable.
