Piss yellow in color. Head rises fast and falls almost just as fast.
Extremely light and corny. Next to zero hops and tons of sweaty yeast. Dry, crisp, refreshing, with a easy finish. Slightly fruity.
I'd like to know what "Yakima Vally Hops" are added...? It serves as an easy drinking, affordable, "4th of July party" type beer. Recommended for the price point.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a pale golden amber with a thin film with ring around the glass. It's been a long time since I had an adjunct beer and forgotten how sad these look. Aroma of light sweet malt with faint grassy hops. Flavor follows with very attenuated sweet malt and a slight hint of hops in the finish. Lots of carbonation, giving the impression of sparkling water with light sweet malt added. Hints of biscuit malt in the finish. Very light bodied. Well, fairly close to expectations, very light and innocuous. Thought I was going to tick a brewery; forgot Rainier was bought out a long time ago by Pabst. Uninteresting but harmless.

3.11/5 rDev +17.4%
Formed a finger and a half of head, but quickly down to a covering. The body is golden with lots of bubbles coming up.
The smell has a good dose of grain, but too much metallic comes through too.
The taste is mildly bitter with some honey sweetness in the middle. Descent flavor for the style.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Not too bad.
