It was free… must've made it taste better. Still better than Corona.

Great with a lime. One of the better cheaper beers and stays nice in a pitcher.

Doesn't even taste like beer. I finished it because there was no other beer.

Great go to beer! smooth lager. Not too strong! Great for relaxing get-togethers and just chilling on a hot summer day.

If you like Corona on the beach, then you'll like this beer. It's the microbrew version of a light, beachy beer. I don't love it, but it's a beer you can have a lot of on a hot summer day.

On draft at one of my favorite haunts. Never seen it and asked ahead of time if it was any good....should have steered clear based on the barmaids response. Maybe it will get better with this big plate of nachos that I'm about to eat but I doubt it. I'll be switching up after this one.

This is just "ok". I'd get it over a Bud Light or something all day. That's about it though.

One of my favorite beers. What sucks is winter time, no one buys it so it just sits on shelves. But summertime, one of the best beers. People waste money in Corona or expensive terrible Mexican beers. This "island style lager" is very smooth and light so goes great with any food also. 12 pack is 12$. Not too bad.

Landshark incorporates a plethora of flavor, ensuring an infusion of fruity scents and tastes. The only problem is that it tastes like a fruity version of a mainstream American light lager.

I was drinking a ton of this stuff when it was in cans in my area. Used to be my lawnmower beer. Cooler on the mower full of ice cold Landshark cans wasn't the worst thing in the world, by far! Can't see myself picking them up in bottles for no real reason though.

when this first came out, i kind of liked it, being a juvenile in my beer palate, and definitely preferring it to a corona (still do). it has less of the chemical off flavors of the other large scale island lagers, and is really pretty easy drinking. so yellow and bright and clear it almost looks to have a green tint in some lights, and while its real well carbonated, and cant hold much head. its smell is its worst feature to me, adjuncty and sweet, but the flavor is better, it drinks clean, and there is no residual weirdness or metallic tang to it at all. the carbonation is outstanding, and the refreshment value is high when its cold, but the clear bottles lend to skunking quickly, and if yours isnt real fresh, its probably terrible. i like the marketing, i like having an alternative to corona for that purpose, but for some reason this beer gives me brutal hangovers. i can drink imperial ipa all night, but three of these and im in trouble in the morning. not sure what does that...

Terrible. Crap aimed at Jimmy Buffet fans. Proving that saturating the market with advertising can sell anything.

Corona-ish kind of taste, I tried it once, wouldn't buy it again.

Winter blues making me dream of warmer weather and ....I just really enjoy the freshness and light feel of his beer in the summer.

Pale gold with two fingers of white head. Leaves a fair amount of lace as the liquid level drops. Skim coat of head lasted all the way to the bottom of the glass. Smell is very mild grain husk with a tiny amount of grassy hops.
Taste is mild cracker malt with a slowly building herbal or grassy hop bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation level. Very smooth going down.
Overall I like this better than Corona. It might be closer to Sol lager than Corona. I enjoyed it and the price was $6.47 a sixer at Walmart. It is finally at a reasonable price point for this type of beer. My bottle says brewery is located in St. Louis, MO. not Jacksonville, FL.
