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 looked at the website description before sampling. It was served with a nice cream colored to very light tan, fine head, that slowly subsided to a ring around the top, a tiny bit of lace, some bubble streams. Color was a nice clear medium amber. Aroma was beery and a bit of malt. Flavor was mainly sweet with a little malt thrown in. Body and carbonation were ok. Finish was like flavor. Fairly shallow overall. The darker color, I think, predisposes one to think there’s more malt in here than there is. Not planning on having more.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with fizzy beige head. Aroma doesn’t have much to it, a bit of grain. Flavor is the same. Light and watery with high carbonation. Nothing to it.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 Had this on tap at my favorite bar. I absolutely love the nutty flavor that it has, and it is very drinkable and has become a staple in my fridge.

A slight step above grain belt, there is definitely more malt here, but still, c’mon its pretty terrible.

Pours a clear amber with a small, fizzy, white head. Aroma is mild and grainy with hints of biscuits, caramel, and light floral hops. Flavor is mild hops, caramel, corn, and hints of nuttiness and musty notes. Thin bodied and very carbonated. Rather disappointing actually, though not terrible.

Light copper body with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit of walnut along with raw bread dough. There is also a little whiff of apple. The taste is sweet caramel with some bread dough. The finish is malty with lots of old toffee and some dust. A little sweet tea character throughout. This is decent.

A lovely pour. Dark amber with a creamy off white head. Some good lacing and spotting on the glass. Aroma is of metal, grass, and just a bit of caramel and bakery. But not enough caramel and bakery nose to save this. Watery mouth feel. Little malt and hops. Almost no after taste. This looks a lot better than it tastes. A pity because it looks so nice.

I had a lot greater expectations on this one. Good aroma, great tradition, but pretty non-descript flavor with a slight offensive after taste.

I actually enjoyed this beer much more than I thought I would. Perhaps because it was after a long day at the tree farm, sitting around a campfire with good people. Nice carmel and biscuit notes throughout, maybe a tiny bit of hop bitterness. Finishes crisp. I will have another please.
