COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rainier beer brings together natures 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.

Honestly now, this aint 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.

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, theres not a whole lot else going on here though.

The flavor is pretty nice, its a little bit warm on the alcohol presence and its got some doughy sweetness, but its decently crisp and there arent 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 its pedigree.

Its actually extremely easy to drink.

Slumming it! On tap. A: Dark straw color, thin white head. N: Grist, earth, a hint of minerality, slight hopping lends some leafiness. Some peppercorn and regular corn. T: Sweet and a touch bitter. M: Light body, soda like carbonation, no alcohol. O: It is cold and it is cheap. (2 bucks). Not a bad quaff really. Its malty but inoffensive when near freezing.

Milestone beer time! I think Im gonna start doing cool beers for my every 100, and it starts now. 24 oz man can that I didnt bother pouring. I wanted to enjoy this the way this can is meant to be enjoyed. Soft hop aroma. To be honest, nothing about this beer offends me. Flavor is very light, but the taste is in no way bad to me. Smooth flavor and a sweet finish. I like to think Im still enjoying a local beer. Its definitely a local favorite beer, and its hard to go far without someone ordering it. I just dont think I ever had it before today. First time for everything. Not bad.

I have tried the legendary Rainier Ale so this beer came to me w/ high expectations to say the least. This is a bright pale golden head w/ a voluminous but relatively short lived head, which is par the course for the style. This one smells pretty nice right off the bat. Its got a crisp, grassy hop smell with a non-specific grainy character that I consider to be the cheap beer smell. While Id say this is nice overall, it is slightly marred by a light metallic note. It additionally has a light bit of sweetness which combined w/ relatively mild carbonation does not quite provide the crispness I like to see in a good American lager. Still, this is a pretty reasonable beer to drink under pretty much any circumstances. Id imagine it would pair well w/ steak or Cheetos or other things that are good to eat. You could drink it on a mountain or in a boat maybe. I dunno. Fucken cheap beer is pretty great though.

Can thanks to Frank. 16ozer! White can with red letters. Gold top. Nose is strong in corn and moderate with a fruity apple like ester. Taste is gawd awful candied apple flavor. Painfully highly carbonated. This is only tolerable because Frank bonused it to me IP at @@rons wedding. Starts to be tolerable in most aspects except carbonation after several sips. Im not sure if off flavors are better or worse than flavorless.
