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.

"Made Becks Sapphire seem like a mellow well crafted lager in comparison. Hot, prickly, flavors of corn and alcohol. Really really not good...really. I feel like such a whore."

absolutely terrible. pour is a piss golden yellow with a thin head that disappears quickly. aroma is grassy and a bit skunky. first flavors is of a cheap hay and grass but then the aftertaste sets in as a bitter coating on the tongue.

Can from Brewforia. Pours light gold with a slight white head. Aroma is very lightly fruity hop. Maybe a hint of pale malt. Med minus body. Flavor is very mild fruity hop with some lightly bready malt. Truly it is not so horrible as most pale lagers.

The best of the cheap beers, Rainier will get you through dark times. Not much else to say.

Hmmm...Iím wondering where in Juneau, I canít find this beer. Anyways, here goes. Iíve had this various times in pint glasses and pilseners and this is reviewed from notes. The appearance was a decent looking yellow color with a strong transparency all about it. Carbonation was seen rising and filling less than a half fingerís worth of head that fizzled into the beer less than thirty seconds. The smell was grainy and corny. The taste was really only corny sweet and had a dried corn sweet aftertaste. There was a watery finish. On the palate, it sat exceptionally light and was mostly sessionable for the most part. The carbonation is there and is decent for the style. Overall, uh...American Adjunct Lager, did I like it, hmmm...its one of those poundable beers on a hot summerís day (which we donít get too much of those in Juneau, but anways). Uh...yeah, I donít really buy this stuff, but anyways, thatís what Iím sticking to and Iíll leave it at that.

Headbanger (3303) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew fulfilled its needs in college.

Tallboy can. Pours cleat light gold with fizzy white head. Aroma is corn and vegetal notes, pale malts, and lager yeast. Flavor is bland pale malts, light corn, and faint yeast esters; crisp, dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Bottle & can. I definitively say this is beer, as I witnessed the pour. Otherwise, it looks like the urine of a dehydrated person with a head that disappears as quickly. Corn and barley on the nose, and relatively little to be excited about for the taste. Yay Northwest! Boo crappy pale lagers!
