UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 12 oz. can. I remember enjoying this beer much more years ago. I know my tastes have changed, but I imagine that since Rainier is no longer an independent brewery, the good folks at Miller have cheapened the recipe. Too bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Bottle. Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is corn and a bit of sweet malt. Flavor is what you’d expect from a pale lager. Decent, for what it is.

Nothing beats getting shitcanned around an open fire with the sound of Canadian loons in the distance. Nature! And thanks Rainier for being a part of that. Average macro pale lager.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
