look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear carmel color with a little bit off off white foam head that dissipates after a minute or two. Lots of carbonation bubbles.

S: Sweet grains and bread. The slightest touch of toasted malt. Its got that classic Grain Belt smell to it, but with more malt.

T: Sweet breadyness and sweet grains with a slight tinge of bitter malt near the end. A little to much sweetness for my liking.

M/D: Thin and light mouthfeel, carbonated pretty well. Pretty straightforward, feels like a beer. Drink is okay, goes down easily, not sure if I would want to have multiples in a row though.

Nothing special, not bad at all though. Haven't had regular Grain Belt in awhile, so I'm not sure if I prefer this to the original.

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.

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.
