So popular. The t-shirts. The banners. The bottle openers. Everyone's sporting landshark but does anyone really know what it is? Or what it tastes like?

Appearance (3.75) : I'm having a good time with heads tonight. This one pours a super creamy, tightly knit two fingered head that doesn't seem to be going anywhere soon. The body color is what I would call a mellow gold. It's pretty, actually. Transparent and excellent clarity. It's rare to have a good appearance in an adjunct lager, so I'm throwing the 3.75 out there.

Aroma (3.5) : Wait. Is this impressive...? There's no skunk or rotten corn like I expected. Instead it has a fresh melon-light fresh corn aroma with a hint of hop in the background. It's surprisingly fresh and respectable. It's not amazing, but it's way better than I expected.

Taste (4) : Damn. It's actually decent. There's not much there but what it has is spot on. Lightly hopped corn and barley malts quickly morph into effervescence and a dry (comparatively) finish. This brew is actually decent! I'd grab this in a cooler of macros - NO DOUBT. Easy drinking, nice subtle flavor, and doesn't taste like a rusted vat of corn mash nightmares.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Light bodied, as to be expected. Carbonated, also to be expected. Ends dry at the back of the throat. The hop dryness is a great addition.

Overall (3.78) : I desperately wanted to trash this beer because I hate how much publicity Landshark gets. I thought it was going to be horrible. A drain pour, even. But honestly, it's better than most of the macros out there by a nose, and it seems to be readily available and cheap to purchase. It's not amazing, but heck, it does the trick. You owe it to yourself to try this with a burger, a dog, or by itself on a hot afternoon.

Had this at a backyard wedding this weekend. This beer is marketed as if it were some craft version of Corona. It tastes better than Corona but that’s not saying much. The best thing that I can say about this offering is that it is union-made.
