Grain Belt Nordeast has a very thick, frothy, spongy, off-white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, gold-amber appearance, with a higher-than-average amount of suspended powdery sediment throughout, and a fairly heavy lacing left behind. Aroma is of sourish, citrus, grain and malt, and the flavor is of those elements, alongside bread crust, white bread, some sweetness, and very low level hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Grain Belt Nordeast finishes crisp and easy drinking.

Pretty bland. Pretty watery. Probably a great beer if you want to drink all day and piss a lot.

Bottled 03/06/15:

Pours caramel-colored, as seen through the clear bottle. A foamy white head hangs around for most of the drink, leaving a bit of lacing.

The smell is of slightly toasted grain.

The taste is sweet-leaning - some balancing taste and a subtle hop touch. Sweetened tea-like finish.

It is pretty watery and thin.

A rather bland brew, but easy enough to drink. A basic sweet-leaning amber lager.

Classic MN beer. Glad to see a MN brewery picked it up. Good slightly sweet flavor. Nice amber color. Easy beer to bring to a party for all to enjoy without discussing the flavor notes etc.
