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!

Nordeast is better than grain belt but for the money it is not a great deal. Sort of a cool beer to drink at parties because its likely most will be Familiar with it, but be drinking something less unique. Nordeast is a fun change from the normal session beers i drink Like pbr or leinenkugals Original "chipewas Pride" . It has an almost fishy smell, which is the worse part about it. it tastes good, not much to say about its flavor except that it is not lacking in flavor.
for the money i would generally choose somthing else.
