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.

Fatehunter (1950) - 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.

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 isnít differentiated from others like it.

Itís the chicken nugget of swill beers: You donít really know whatís in it, and itís nobodyís idea of *good*... but thereís nothing to *dislike* about it either. Very sessionable, very approachable, and tasty. If I canít go with craft beer, Rainier beer is my first choice for a good can of swill.

Honestly now, this ainít no "craft" beer, but it does fit the bill and the flavor buds if ya just wanna a real simple, drinkable brew and enjoy it as it is. A pretty darn good, inexpensive beer.

Can shared by "hannont". What a funny guy! Colour...pale straw with a thin white head. Nose...used diapers, wet corn and musty lemon. Palate...light, fluffy and redolent with creamed corn and soggy Frosted Flakes. Nuf said.

GABF 2015. The festival was the first time I saw this beer and did not want to pass up the opportunity to try it. Yellow lager, some white head and well carbonated. good palate. A little malt, but nearly flavorless but not bad at all, and perfectly drinkable.

Een pils uit de omgeving van Mount Rainier National Park. Een beetje zoals Budweiser, maar dan iets beter.

Can with lunch at Mod.

Watery, corn-sweetness forward. A classic shit-American-lager, basically. My Aussie friend felt right at home.

Thanks to Stalincat for this long awaited tick!
Pours perfectly clear & pale with a pretty small but well retained head,.

The aroma is sweet and doughy with a little bit of corn, thereís not a whole lot else going on here though.

The flavor is pretty nice, itís a little bit warm on the alcohol presence and itís got some doughy sweetness, but itís decently crisp and there arenít a lot of objectionable flavors, the fruity hop character is extraordinarily muted but this has a more interesting hop character than a lot of other pale lagers of itís pedigree.

Itís actually extremely easy to drink.
