look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer mug.
Appearance: Beer is a deep copper color with great carbonation. Head is foamy and rich-looking, with excellent retention and heavy lacing as it recedes.
Smell: Woody hops, sweet malt flavor, and an elusive fruity scent (is it berries or citrus or a little of both). Awesome.
Taste/Mouthfeel: This is simply beautiful. Beer is of a light- to medium-heaviness, but there's a great balance with the carbonation which fools you into thinking you've got a thick beer here. Bitterness up front, but as the bubbles form, there's a real apple-like tartness which is not unpleasant matched by a gentle ester vibe. Beer finishes mostly wet, and goes down smoothly.
Overall: A surprise winner! I got this from a neighbor who works at a distributor...he told me his favorite beer was Bud Light, and I was a bit concerned when he recommended the Grain Belt Nordeast...but man, I definitely trust him now!

Poured from a bottle into a glass. Nordeast isn't the best tasting beer in the market, but for the price it is very difficult to find beers that can compare in drinkability and refreshness. It's my go to beer both in the winter and summer and will continue to be my first choice for reasonable priced beer. Look is what one expects from amber lager. Smell is a good balance of hops and wheat and a sample of honey. Mouthfeel is extremely smooth. This beer can be drank all day and should be the go to beer for any trip to Minnesota; especially on a budget.
