Rainier beer brings together nature’s 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.

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

SEATTLE HOMiE . Flavored water. Yumm, great in a park at 3am with a cigarillo filled with your favorite filling. Pale malt.

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.

"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.

Clear pale fizzy yellow under a thin foamy head. Nose has some watery corn and basic lager tones. Flavor of the same. Corn, cracker, pale sugar malt.
