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!

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Bottle, at my dad’s house. Did NOT care for regular Grain Belt as made by Schell’s, but this is the rule-breaker. I notice they’re not declaring so in their description, but this tastes like an all-malt amber. Decent "beer" smell after pouring, no sweet adjuncty notes. Amber colored body under a stiff white head. Drinks easily, and agrees more with the Vienna style (or the historic lagers like Yuengling). The usual plain beer mouthfeel, but again the all-malt brew is apparent and appreciated, although further on there may be a touch of corn or ricew. Hops are not too distinct, probably just the basic Noble varieties lending a bit of a prickle in the back of my mouth.

Keg @ Mimosa, MPLS. Light amber with a small head. Nose of caramel and biscuit. Taste of robust caramel malt. Light grain. Sweet artificial apple. Light body, soft carb. Not a bad cheap option

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 (333) - 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 (290) - 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.

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.
