2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to Atom, rad extra! Pours a clear golden with big, frothy white head. Aroma is minimal but a subdued malt, grain and corn mix. Taste is not too bad with a very balanced malt to yeast component. Not your typical malt extract. Overall, I could drink this on a summer day or pretty much any other day of the year.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grain Belt Nordeast has a very thick, frothy, spongy, off-white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, gold-amber appearance, with a higher-than-average amount of suspended powdery sediment throughout, and a fairly heavy lacing left behind. Aroma is of sourish, citrus, grain and malt, and the flavor is of those elements, alongside bread crust, white bread, some sweetness, and very low level hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Grain Belt Nordeast finishes crisp and easy drinking. RJT
