Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Thanks to woodychandler for the CAN!

Clear, yellow, bright white head that goes in an instant. Pretty typical.

Crisp, cold, wet grains and dried corn.

Slight corny sweetness, hints of malts and some aluminum aftertastes.

crisp, light in body, not much substance, and pretty plain overall.

Naturally, easily chuggable, but not something to search for.

Ok ok ok, I get it, your overdeveloped palate doesn't like a nice, refreshing AAL. While I do enjoy big, strong flavors in beer, there are times that a beer like this fits the bill.

It's 95 outside and I'm on a boat, do I want a Black Tuesday? No.

I just got done mowing the lawn, do I want an Iris? No.

I just got home from work/school and I'm exhausted, do I want that $100 bottle of (enter Vermont brewer here)? No.

When rating this, I took into account that it's an AAL, it's not trying to be anything else. Simple, refreshing, highly carbed, light taste with a mild hop presence. Plus, I can drink like 8 of these without getting drunk.

These ratings are all 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
