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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Milwaukee Brewfest. Poured clear medium golden with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasty grains with light grass and herbal accents.. smelled like it was going to be refreshing. The flavor found toasty grains and pale malts at the core.. fresh grassy and oaky notes around.. quick, crisp finish. Light-bodied and toasty on the palate.. not much to it, but it was refreshing.

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 :)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours nice orange with white head, aroma is some light floral hops, touch of biscuit and caramel. Taste is very nice floral and earth hops just a bit at the beginning, leading into a caramel biscuit middle finishing clean and a touch bitter. Drinkable, and some good tastes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to swalden28 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma doesn’t have much going on other than a heavy dose of grain and sweet malt. The flavor is very similar, with grain and a little bit of fruit, which I can’t really identify. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fairly straightforward and not offensive, but something I cared too much for.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Picked up a six-pack at Cellars Wine & Spirits in Shorewood. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of caramel, some light cornmeal, Taste is light to medium bodied, caramel and bready malt flavors, floral hops and a hint of spice. Finish is crisp, a little dry with a short lived dark bread malt and citrus aftertaste. The nostalgic 1930s Grain Belt logo is cool. The clear glass bottle may be an issue if not purchased and drank fresh.
