Notes/Commercial Description:
Although the Grain Belt Premium recipe has changed hands over the years, one thing has remained the same–its legendary unique taste. And now that Premium is in the capable hands of a brewery with an even longer tradition than Grain Belt–the August Schell Brewery–may you rest assured that the flavor and heritage of Premium will live on forever.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Beer pours yellow with fizzy foam head - quickly receding to nothing. appearance is average for the style, reminds me of High Life. Aroma is a surprise, there is the typical grain/corn thing from adjunct lagers but there is also a very apparent floral hop aroma that is above average for the style, nothing crazy, but better than most.

Taste is unremarkable - on par for style, mostly standard adjunct flavors, tastes like corn as opposed to rice, again kind of similar to High Life. Thin mouthfeel but appropriate for the style.

Overall, clean, crisp, refreshing, cheap (got a 12 pack of tall boys for $12), a bit above-average for the style. It is what it is and hits the spot after too many IPAs or Imperial Stouts, it helps to cleanse the palate.

Serving type: can
