Grain Belt Nordeast is a great beer from a company that is typically known for making beer on par with Budweiser and Miller. This beer is far more robust and flavorful and I enjoy it.
A - typical for a red amber lager
S - complex and not overpowering in too many of its characteristics. Hops are there.
T - Very pleasant and a bit watery but compared to its peers of amber lagers, it gives a bit more flavor and depth. Hops are apparent but not overwhelming. Aftertaste is pleasant.
M - No complaints. Average with a bit of bitterness.
D - Very drinkable. Smooth with just a touch of roughness
This is a substantial improvement over Grain Belt Premium because it has more flavor and character. It is not a craft beer so don't expect the crafted experience. My take is that if you want a routine "drinkin' beer", this is better than the rest.

Sampling right now on 5/16/14, but had this one in the past.Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a flute glass.
Pours a pretty dark amber with a thin off-white head that leaves a good amount of sticky lacing when sipped. Not much of a smell actually, just some malt and floral. The taste is lightly sweet upfront but isn't over done at all with a little dry finish from the malt. Just the right amount of carbonation and a very easy drinking brew. Has a clean crisp taste that is very enjoyable! Really like this one.
