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!

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.

Trev (1929) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2010
clear light amber-brownish pour with a thin quick head. aroma is sweet bready malt, some caramel, slightly nutty. Body is quite light. Light malt sweetness, still get some corn notes. minerally very light bitter finish.

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 (352) - 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!

zeke626 (422) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle, pours a caramel/light amber body with off-white, creamy foam head. Aroma and flavor of malts, light caramel, corn, and bread. Similar to Grain Belt Premium, except with a more malty flavor instead of a corn flavor. Lightly carbonated with an oily mouthfeel. Sticky sweet finish.

I wasn’t expecting too much out of this brew it was a lot more tasty than I imagined. I wouldn’t necessarily call this a stellar beer but it is better than a swift kick to the groin.
