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.

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.

Draft pours clear golden yellow with minimal head. The aroma is generic grain, sweet malt, adjunk. Flavor is boring malt, little hop notes. Light feel. Bleh.

Can at Trineesh’s wedding barbeque. Any association from the name is an embarrassment to the Pacific Northwest: this is a yellow, adjuncty lager with a stewed corn aroma and little or no hop character which I struggled to finish. Dreadful.

Ice cold can at Brian’s wedding in Alaska. Pours a yellow color with minimal white head. Watery, straw aromas. Straw, corn, water, husk flavors. Definitely on the lower end of macro beers

Below average taste. I am not a fan of the after taste. I wouldn’t buy this beer again I would happily drink it if someone gave one to me.

Boring pale lager similar to Pabst or Bud. It’s got a slightly salty flavor and a barely there taste. I like to drink it because it’s cheap

Got a 24 pack of this since I've been wanting to try it for some time now. This is slightly carbonated water. No taste no nothing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

romAa of frozen corn and straw. Pale yellow but has a nice head. Funky spiced corn taste, fizzy body like a soft drink. Not complaining but this isn’t differentiated from others like it.

12oz can pours out a clear crisp straw color topped with a white head. nose is corn some grassy malts and a little skunk. Taste is more of the corn some spice.

It’s the chicken nugget of swill beers: You don’t really know what’s in it, and it’s nobody’s idea of *good*... but there’s nothing to *dislike* about it either. Very sessionable, very approachable, and tasty. If I can’t go with craft beer, Rainier beer is my first choice for a good can of swill.

This beer is a tale gate party in a can. This is what a party taste like. This is the cheap beer, beer snobs can love. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
