COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Fatehunter (1178) - 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.

Can @ Cannon Beach. This is quite possibly the worst beer I have ever tasted.

16oz can from Total Wine in Spokane
Pours clear straw yellow with a small white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, corn and honey. Taste is sweet malts, grainy with a mild bitter citrus in the finish. First time I’ve had this in years (since it was brewed in WA), I remember it being much better than this.

24 dec 2012, can. Light yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is sweet lager malt. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Dry grass hops. Mildly crisp. Ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crystal clear gold color. I can’t remember seeing a clearer beer. Sudsy snow white head that sustains for some time. Stale metallic skunky smell. Slight malt sweetness at first, then kind of taste like old coins smell. Very dry with an abrupt finish. Overall it’s drinkable and certainly better than some beers in the same class. Can says Rainier Brewing Co. (Irwindale, CA) on it. Not sure if this supposed to be listed under Miller.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pint at Hilt in Portland. Never heard of this one before. One of those brewed for a regional market. Pale gold, minimal white head. Notes of corn, straw, pale malts, cereal. Light-bodied, medium carbonation. Corny but inoffensive. Fine for what it is.

cmonster (963) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Pale yellow color. Light corn aroma. Light hop and aluminum flavor. Light body, fizzy-creamy texture, and a light bitter finish.

Metal aroma. Metal flavour. No other discernable flavours other than metal. Just... metal.

romulusnr (11) - Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2012
raisin, citrus, pale, clear, white foam, medium sweetness, light body, average carbonation, short-lived finish, not much aroma, flavor is smooth and respectable, maltier than hoppy, refreshing, all-purpose, perhaps the best of the lowest class of beer.

This is a great beer at an affordable price. Of note, it does not taste like a wooden barel. Steeped in NW tradition (although not brewed here any more) its best served ice cold, it’s quite refreshing. More so than others that are served at warmer temperatures and cost more. This is what I stock the frig with, then buy the foo-foo beers as more of a treat. This brew fills the cooler while fishing for salmon.
