Named after the hardworking neighborhood where the original Grain Belt Brewery established its roots back in 1893. The term ‘Nordeast’ comes from the Northern and Eastern European immigrants and their language which helped shape Northeast Minneapolis. This amber American Lager is our way of honoring the storied past of Grain Belt and the people who helped to make it legendary! Cheers!

Bottle. Aroma has mild floral quality, light nuttiness, fresh caramel-like sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel. Very lightly sweet flavor - brown sugar vanilla. Sightly sour corn note in the background, a common note in Grain Belt Premium. Finish has lightly bitter hops with herbs and lemon zest.

makes me feel like a true mn man. even if its only fair beer. It honestly is not that great, but I will take a grain belt on any day. It is hilarious to see/hear about how fast this stuff flies off the shelves at a few local places. (gone in 1-2 hrs). Which most likely makes me subconsciously enjoy this beer more. Overall, I like the color, the taste is ok in the mouth, then absent afterwards. Decent brew with a hometown feel.

DalzAle (2018) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Bottle. Clear light amber pour, some carbonation and a lightly malty and sweet aroma. Flavor is very similar to the GB Premo, but a little more heft to the palate. Slightly more hops, some almond flavor and finshes sweet. Decent? Yes. Worth the price-tag, no.

I wasn’t expecting much but, you know, it wasn’t all that terrible--on a hot summer day--and I had it in sequence with the new Newcastle summer ale and it actually was the better of the two beers. Reasonably clean and simiple. At least they’re trying to do the "tradition and culture" thing rather than creating some kind of massively hyped beer.

This to me was like a mild( watered down) version of a Sam Adams Boston Lager. I was very excited to try it when it came out but after trying it I was a little disappointed. Not a terrible beer but at 4.75 a bottle at the bar I think I will be buying somthing else.

Very disappointed with this beer. I was led to believe it was better than it is and would not recommend to someone looking for a good Amber Lager. Not terrible but not good either.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
In the bottle from El Bait Shop. Pours light brown with a thin white head. Mild toasted aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet with a bit of caramel. Very light and watery in body. Outstanding graphic on the label. Not such an outstanding beer.

All around, a bit bland. Some malty sweetness, but not a lot of complexity or character. Nothing offensive, it would be an ok session brew, but if I’m drinking Grain Belt, I’d prefer it to be Grain Belt Premium, in a can, while floating down a river.

mybrainhurts (390) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Light stricken, spoiled veggies, cardboard, and cola aroma. Flavors of slightly roasted caramel, pizza box, and grass. Raw, grainy and gritty mouthfeel. Never a repeat!
