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.

I’ve been drinking Rainier since I’ve been drinking. When I was younger it used to come in 16 oz "pounders". Those days are gone but if its around I’ll still drink it. Its also great for drinking games.

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.

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 (3578) - 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.

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 I’ve ever had the unpleasant experience of tasting. I find it remarkable that a beer this horrible actually exists. Never again.

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.

Tried this one in Washington state. Worse than Olympia beer. Probably will never try this again.

Lagerboy (1507) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
355ml can, 5% ABV, Stroh CDN version. Clear pale straw yellow, foamy white head settles quickly. Mild sweet corny grainy lager aroma and taste, somewhat fruity. No bitterness or any evidence of hops. Average carbonation, light bodied, no hopped. Made for mass consumption straight from the can. Inoffensive and swillable makes it: LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Fatehunter (1596) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Formed a finger and a half of head, but quickly down to a covering. The body is golden with lots of bubbles coming up. The smell has a good dose of grain, but too much metallic comes through too. The taste is mildly bitter with some honey sweetness in the middle. Descent flavor for the style. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Not too bad.
