3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked up a six-pack at Cellars Wine & Spirits in Shorewood. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of caramel, some light cornmeal, Taste is light to medium bodied, caramel and bready malt flavors, floral hops and a hint of spice. Finish is crisp, a little dry with a short lived dark bread malt and citrus aftertaste. The nostalgic 1930s Grain Belt logo is cool. The clear glass bottle may be an issue if not purchased and drank fresh.

I have to agree with my buddy. This beer tastes like regular premium and boot polish. Not good at all.

Ran into this one at the liquor store today. Regular Grain Belt was my goto beer for years and years. Not as sweet as the regular. I was honestly really looking forward to this and was a little let down.
