This beer is my go-to beer, especially for the price. It is great all year round, but especially refreshing in the summertime. I love it paired with a good grillout/tailgate experience. It is not one of the best beers I have had, but is a tasty, reliable beer for your money.

Poured from a bottle into a glass. Nordeast isn't the best tasting beer in the market, but for the price it is very difficult to find beers that can compare in drinkability and refreshness. It's my go to beer both in the winter and summer and will continue to be my first choice for reasonable priced beer. Look is what one expects from amber lager. Smell is a good balance of malt and wheat and a sample of honey. Mouthfeel is extremely smooth. This beer can be drank all day and should be the go to beer for any trip to Minnesota; especially on a budget.
