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 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.

On tap. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber and an off white head to the edges. Aroma has musty grain with a touch of metallic and corn notes. Flavor is more earthy sweet grains with a touch of corn backing.

A great easy drinking beer that can be a cheap replacement for your basic big brewers.

dekester1 (318) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Poured a dark, pale amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma was the highlight being slightly sweet with hint of prunes. Taste possessed maltiness with a slight pear and nut notes. Finish was light hops. Palate was decent. Overall, an OK amber.

foyle (241) - Wyoming, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a 1"+ off white head that slowly falls leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Color is a clear amber with mild streaming carbonation. Aroma: toasted barley malt dominates the aroma, other than that, it is fairly mild. Mouthfeel: light and frothy with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: toasted bread crust, some corn, raisin, maybe a hint of hops in the finish. Overall: decent but pedestrian.

Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12oz bottle 7/31/14 (Woodmans-Waukesha)-Pours a clear amber with no head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and grains. Taste of the same with some slight hops. This light bodied brew is a bit mild but rather boring.

can @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear dark amber with a thick rocky white head, a couple of streaks of lace. Taste is corn and a little malt. I’m really surprised that the flavor disappears almost before one hits the finish. Very weak, not even the equal of their flagship, Grain Belt. Not good for anything but another rating.

Bottle. Aroma of corn and bread. Light brown to orange with thin white head. Medium sweetness with a slightly bitter finish. Refreshing, but nothing special.

Maltser85 (287) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Looks like cream soda almost in a glass. Aroma of grain, lager yeast. Taste is similar, slight malt. Its better than some pale lagers, but it still is not anything special.

Bottle, pours clear amber with a white head, thin and watery with some malt and very slight bitter finish, rather bland but I would take this over a pale lager though

Bacterial (1621) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Draft at Grumpy’s in Roseville a few weeks back. Got this beer for $1 with one of their burgers. The burger was way, way better than this beer, but I won’t turn down a $1 pint of beer. Slightly dark amber in color. Thin, refreshing. Some dactyl in the finish, which might be to style if that style is not very good.
