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.

Had a can of this at the Sunrise Lodge at Mt. Rainier after hiking about 12 miles - best damn tasting beer at the moment. Has a wet paper bag aroma, foamy white head, dark yellow appearance. Crisp lager flavor - find it to be better than the big boys. Goes down very smooth. It sounds like by the commercials in the area that they are trying to get this beer to be the next Pabst - cheap but chic.

Pale yellow in color with little to no head. Aroma is nondistinct perhaps a touch of malt. Flavor is watery, slight notes of grain. I used to drink these at a bowling alley, 16oz bottle gives you more bang for the buck when compared to 12oz Bud or Coors products. Anyways this stuff is pretty bad.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2004 Certainly better than most BMC products. There are commercials for this? Awesome. Taste is typical of cheap beer, but the chemical taste and rice/corn flavor is substatially numbed down. When I see that mountain on the can, it gives me a sense of NW pride.

Once "the" local beer here in Wa., now regarded as second rate. I find it to be refreshing and tasty. Nothing extreme, but clean and cleansing. Kind of a bubbly taste! My personal local favorite (in the bottle). Much better than Bud!

Bad. Typical body, head, taste and finish of a crappy water-beer. Glad I only bought one can.

A not so yummy, yet cheap beer. Good for taking to family gatherings to get your relatives sloshed, while you sit back and enjoy a nice Stone IPA.

Not a lot to speak of for the aroma. Almost looks the same as most standards. Same typical taste that one would look for in a get drunk beer. Rather sweet and easy to drink.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Ok bought at the local cheapo canned food warehouse 99 cents for a 24 oz can..nice enough can..Mt Rainier all in silvers and white The appearance is not great just above average for a macro..least its golden ( pale) in colour..and has a small white head. Smell is sort of weird..like rainwater..and some chemicals..hard to place. I have to say the taste ain’t all that bad really for a cheap macro..sort of Like Miller High Life but a little less sweet.. a lot of corn..but I believe i taste a ghost of some hops in the end. Mouthfeel is not so hot..too carbonated and watery. Overall not a good beer but ok if you want a cheap beer to wash down the dust after some strenuous physical work.
