If Bud is the king of beers then this would have to have been the Prince, well until the 6th of April this year when the Monaco leader passed away. Is this in poor taste? Yep, sure is. Just like the swill. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 The "new" Rainier seems a bit better than the Rainier I remember 15 or 20 years ago. Smooth feel with a creamy-like sweetness. Mild bitterness. Beery. Relatively clean. Kind of reminds me of PBR. Not undrinkable, but not exciting at all. Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Ahh, vitamin R. It sustained us through high school and the summer of drugs and then left us with only the fondest of memories. Like foosball games of "losers shotgun a vitamin R", like long conversations with my dog, like losing my virginity to a girl who dumped me the next day, like my first raging hangover. Man, they had the coolest commercials though. mephisto (1288) - TAIWAN - MAR 23, 2005

below average. standard smell, very pale, very watery, kind of tastes like rice. to me this is kokanee, it is no differant and this is much cheaper. dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2004
The Big R! A good drink to have when the bonfire has burned away all the hairs in your nose. And that’s about it. An exercise in masochism. CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2004
(Can) Sampled the 5% alc from Delta, B.C. Pours a foamy, white head with a clear, over-carbonated yellow body. Nose of tonic and mild malt. Boring and watery... Not worth sampling again. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Okay, Andy brought me a bottle of Westvleteren Abt 12, LaConner IPA, and this. Well, it was for fun. You see, Andy has a Newfoundland dog, a Landseer (hence his Ratebeer name of Landseer), named Rainier. After the mountain, not this beer. I’m nuts about Rainier (the dog) having had Newfoundlands in the past. So, this was a little fun gift from Andy in honor of Rainier (the dog). Poured this anyway. So pale yellow as to be almost colorless. A temporary frothy white head. Aroma? Yeah, rright. Mouthfeel? Tap water. Flavor? Rainier (the dog) has better tasting kisses and drool. Doubt that even he would drink this. Westvleteren Abt 12, LaConner IPA, and this. Very funny, Andy. Give Rainier a big hug from me. MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Guam SwillFest 2004: Pours a very light yellow, maybe a little darker than the Rainier Light. Thin white head. Has more of an alcohol aroma with a little grape and some corn. Taste is lightly fruity and not as harsh as the Light. Has more of an alcohol finish. More club soda characteristics.
