16oz can poured into a lager mug.

Beautiful dark amber, looks like last years Leinenkugel Oktoberfest., head is nice, dark cream lingers awhile. Just a nice looking beer.

Aroma, classic Grainbelt, but heavy floral, grain, sweet, very smooth on the nose.

Very easy drinkin, slick lager, sweetness is upfront with the malt. Hops if any gives you a bite, and disappears quickly. Leaves a little dryness. I like this brew. I first bought this a few years ago at a convenience store in Prescott, Wi. We took it to friends in Minnesota, they said they couldnt get it, it was selling out too fast. Taking a big quaff, and you get smooth, sweet, grain, dry all in that order. Dang this is good stuff. Right now a top 5 "go to beer". Too sweet for IPA lovers, but those still into lagers should appreciate this amber.

Left behind is a nice laced mug from top to bottom. Nice Minnesota beer!

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.
