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.

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.

Poured a pale yellow with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of malts and grains - slightly prune-like. Taste was a combination of malts, grain and light prune. Palate was thin. Overall, a fairly typical pale lager.

Shared at the Maplewood Concert In The Park last night, thanks! Poured from a can into a plastic cup, a crystal-clear light golden colour with sudsy, lasting white foam. Sure, this is a crappy adjunct lager, but it actually wasnt nearly so bad as I expected. Mostly neutral, clean graininess, light corn. Ever-so-slightly noticeable citrusy and earthy hops, which is more than you usually get with this kinda stuff. Light body, strong carbonation, bone dry finish. Ice cold like this...at an outdoor concert on a hot summer night...you could do a lot worse.

This beer wont appeal to most craft brew IPA fanatics who seek a strong bitter flavor and dark froth. However, I still sense that this beer is at least leaning in the direction of "Yakima Valley Hops" relative to other light brews. The flavor is slightly hoppy, and you can taste some northwest style if you look for it. Once in a while I actually crave this.

Snagged a 24oz can of this "mountain fresh beer" to go with dinner tonight. Drank from the can so it looks like a can. Slight hop presence in the aroma. Flavor is similar with low key sweet Malta and some bread. Surprisingly smooth and not half bad, actually. I wouldnt mind drinking more of this one so much.

Draught at Bavarian Bistro & Bar, Leavenworth
Pale blond color. It may be crisp, but it has no notable flavor, and one of the lowest bitterness that I can remember.
I would rather drink water.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance The beer is served a light golden color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades very fast leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass Smell The aroma of the brew is light overall, but consists mainly of corn and a little bit of a caramel smell. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of a citrus smell as well as some lighter fruity aromas. Taste The taste begins with a mix of a caramel and fruity sweetness with a hint of a corny taste. As the taste advances the corniness fades all while a little bit of grain and some hop of grassy nature come to the tongue. These flavor tastes take the flavor profile to the end, and leave a somewhat crisp and easy drinking mildly sweet taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer on the slightly lighter and crisp side with a carbonation level that was average. For the style it was rather decent but a little higher of a carbonation may have been a bit better for the style. Overall A pretty nice American style adjunct lager with an easy drinkability and a rather nice flavor overall. Nothing fantastic, but nothing really all that bad.

These ratings areal over the board. Understand that this is not a craft beer, its a mass market lager, it is what it is. Sweet grain dominates the taste, aroma is corn, decent pour with small airy head, very pale golden body with lazy carbonation. Not much of a finish, sort of evaporates. NW cheap lager, nuff said

Yellow beer that is everything I expected. Drink it cause it doesn't fill me up after one. I drink this when I'm in it to drink a lot. Great as a beer back to my favorite whiskey.
