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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

FedForester (14) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2003 Bland but better than Bud. Good head retention. Odor light roasted malt, slight resinous hops. Taste good. Pleasant tingle on the tongue. Good finish. Fairly similar to other Pabst beers in Northwest. Overall a pretty fine inexpensive beer for an old retired forester on pension.

If you lived here in the NW, you're most likey overfamiliar with the Rainier TV commercials from the 70's (Raiiiiiiiii...niiiiiiiieeeer....beeeeeeeeeeer This is a cheap ass beer for those who are cheap bastards themselves or unemployed. I enjoyed this beer during the latter.

Not as bad as some mass produced beer. This is what you drink at a hick bar if you don't want to get beat up.

This beer smells like a wet dog. Makes me think of the commercial with the guy driving up the mountain on the bike shifting gears....Rai Nier Beer
