Pours with a thin head that sticks around for less than a minute. Almost no discernible odor, what I can pick up is grassy or vegetable-like. The taste of toasted malts and sweet caramel is very pleasant...and very prominent, considering that it doesn't smell like anything. Nordeast seems thick for its style, it's not something I would feel like drinking quickly- it's more like a beer one would nurse.

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.
