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.

Can provided by R. McCarty. Pours golden. Corn and mild hop aroma. Looks like corn, smells like corn, guess what. Not a bad macro and certainly preferable over the usuals. Points for drinking it with a great view of Mount Rainier.

An old school lager that was drinkable. I actually liked the old version better than the new one, maybe a difference in the liquor? not a great brew, but drinkable and refreshing

My rating goes back to the original from Pacific Northwest heritage. Was a very light pale lager, with light grain flavor, very little hops. This was very smooth back then, and finish was quite smooth. Not top rung, but above the macro big three.

Served as a 12oz bottle ($2.50) at The Derby Steakhouse & Casino Butte, MT. Pours with four-finger white head that goes slowly leaving some lace. Pale amber color. Very light carbonation and light bodied. Starts with a bland hoppy corn flavor, finish is insipid, good lawn mower beer.

I became a man on this stuff. Sure, it’s not the best, but there are worse beers out there. Just think of all the great old Rainier Beer commercials when you swig one of these down, and it’ll taste that much better!

Surely it is not Blatz. But not bad either. I could see using this to boil up some Brats---or---getting completely trashed with this pleasure elixir. Drank a boatload of this back in the day, when I lived in Washington. To this day I am fond of that state, and its curious beer.

Pours a medium golden yellow color. Aromas of metal, corn, and some minor hop action. Flavor is kind of metallic, with cheerios and hops.

Ratman197 (12660) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Can poured a clear yellow with a large, but quickly dissapating white head. Aromas of bread, corn and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread with a bit of corn and a smooth slightly dry finish.

Tap. Clear, bright yellow colored with a very nice, long lived, white head and good lacing. That is where the goodness ends. Corny aroma, light bodied and sweet with no hop presence to speak of. Really rather poor other than in appearance.
