Very easy drinking beer with a crusty finish of bread, corn and malt. The maltiness gives it an easygoing, everyday kind of appeal. It the brew to have on hand for a Thursday. Any Thursday.

Solid lawnmower beer, a refreshing lager with a rich amber color and a smooth malty flavor. A uniquely good value at at $11 for 12 pack, the Yuengling of the midwest... but better.

Pours a darker amber with a large frothy head. Bit of a sweet flavor and malty. Not a bad brew for the price point. It is a decent tweener beer for those looking for something in between a summer shandy type beer and something a little heavier.

Nice amber colored when poured. There's minimal head. The nose is hard to describe, but it is pleasing. The taste is fairly bold. It is the best beer from the Grain Belt brand.
