A- Amber, quite clear. Head is thin and white. Retention is mediocre.
S- Very mild, but toast, earth, a bit of caramel.
T- Not much to it. Earthy, toast, a faint bit of caramel. Pretty clean.
M- Fairly light but that's to be expected. Carbonation is overly harsh.
O- Merely mediocre. It's Grian Belt Premium plus a bit of flavor minus a bit of nostalgia.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a completely transparent standard amber color with a foam collar and no lacing. At first the aroma was strictly metallic, but as it warmed up it changed into a grassy hopping on top of raw grain aroma. Tastes of mostly raw grains (and a bit of wheat chaff) as well, the moniker "grain belt" was definitely well-chosen. The grassy hopping rises up and settles down without a fuss in the light bodied finish that definitely refreshes like a lawnmower beer. Not bad, not great.
