COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

I can think of a lot worse beers than this, but its a go to only when a bar has a lack of craft and an over abundace of cruddy pale lagers. Light amber pour with small white head. Tastes a little fruity like grain belt, just a but darker.

Date: September 24, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Minneapolis Beer Fest. Full description not available as I sampled way too many beers in 4.5 hours!

(12oz bottle dated 5-28-11 thanks to swalden28) clear copper with thick lasting cola-like head. Nose of brown sugar, fresh cracked grain and melon. Taste of old grain, bit caramel, watery, cracker and cream.

This is my third beer from this brewery. Trader Joe sell some of thier beers. We are in Wonewok resort for 3M. This is the beer that they have on tap. The color is a clear amber and pours with a frothy head. The beer is sweeter than I like. Some caramel and very little hops. Neutral finish.

Serving glass: Poured from tap into Pint glass. Appearance: Burnished amber with just a light head and not much lacing. Aroma: Light caramel malts - not much else. Taste: Just barely sweet caramel grainy malts are the highlight, with a very, very light hop finish. Not much complexity, but appreciate the lower sweetness. Palate: Moderate carbonation, surprisingly ample smooth body for a low abv lager. Overall: Maybe not much going on, but it is well constructed and easy to kick back. Better than the standard Grain Belt.

Meh, nothing fancy here. Like a lot of Schell’s beers pretty bland. Oh well.

Served in a clear bottle as a warning to those who should know better, this beer is clearly aimed at a demographic that is going for quantity. It looked bland, tasted blander, and all around was not worth the money or effort to drink it.

Lightly malty in flavor with elements of grain in the flavor, this was a straight-forward, easy to drink amber, not bad as a session beer.

BVery (5930) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap, bottle. Light orange pour with minimal head. Aroma is mild malt and grain. Taste is also mild malt, cereal, maybe a little caramel, and some nuttiness. It’s, you know, okay. Sorry, WymanJ - please don’t hate me :)

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2011 This has become one of my favorite "go-to" tap beers. It has a slightly sweet flavor, and is quite smooth. A local beer that has a lot of history behind it, so I am glad it I like it so well. It’s a good beer, despite elitists like BVery turning up their noses at it. :P
