These days, Rainier is a product of Pabst (which in itself is a beer marketing company… its beers are contracted elsewhere).
I wasn’t able to find this in 24-ounce cans, but I did find it by the six-pack: six 16-ounce cans for $3.99 at a local supermarket. It’s 4.72% alcohol by volume.
Smell: Toasted corn, barest hint of soap. A little mineral-y.
Taste: Cracked corn grains—not cooked corn indicating DMS though. A little grassy wheat and something that’s puckery (but not sour)… a dry note.
Mouthfeel: A bit harsh in the mouth, an unrefined pucker factor. Sharp edged. Otherwise it’s light-bodied with a prickly carbonation.
The verdict: More of a bite that the others so far, but that’s not necessarily a good thing… cheap and rough in a "roadhouse" kind of way, which does have a certain appeal but it’s not the first of these that I’d reach for (without a sense of irony)—but certainly not the last either.
"Roadhouse beer." I like that.
