Not really worth doing a full a review, but I'm just going say this is my preferred drinking beer. Being from Minnesota this is easily accessible and cheap, and my go to if I'm at the bar and not feeling adventurous or if you want a beer to give to guests without stooping to the bottom beers. Tastes decent and goes down easy, and if I had more then a couple I wouldn't feel bad about it. For what it is it's my ideal beer on a budget.

A- Amber, quite clear. Head is thin and white. Retention is mediocre.
S- Very mild, but toast, earth, a bit of caramel.
T- Not much to it. Earthy, toast, a faint bit of caramel. Pretty clean.
M- Fairly light but that's to be expected. Carbonation is overly harsh.
O- Merely mediocre. It's Grian Belt Premium plus a bit of flavor minus a bit of nostalgia.

Appearance: Translucent brown/caramel color.
Aroma: Almost no smell detectable. Just a tiny bit of malt. It gets marked down for this only because there is nothing to grade it on in this department. There are no bad smells either.
Taste: A little bready, a little malty. No hop presence. Basically no bitterness. However, it is real easy to swig down with no bad flavors to speak of.
Mouthfeel: Exceptional. Great carbonation level and one of the easiest drinking beers I've ever had. It could use a little more body but overall not much to complain about.
Final Thoughts: I've had this beer before and didn't really think much of it. It's one of those beers that you have on hand once in a while but doesn't deserve to be on a regular rotation in your fridge. However, for the novice beer drinker Nordeast is a good starting point if you want to get into darker beers but fear that they might be overwhelming.
