I've heard less than stellar things about this but you know what they say: Don't judge a beer until you've had it.

Color: Bright yellow with a decent head of foam at least.

Aroma: Sweet and pretty much like the style. Can smell corn/rice or whatever the hell they use for adjuncts.

Taste: Not too sweet upfront. Adjunct taste in the middle with little or no body. Surprisingly does not taste skunked. A bit of hop bitterness as well but not much else to note.

Mouthfeel: Sweet. Smooth.

Verdict: Better than Corona at least. Smooth and simple. If you're looking for a cheap, mediocre lager, this isn't a bad choice. (619 characters)

Doesn't even taste like beer. I finished it because there was no other beer. (76 characters)

Very ugly shade of yellow in a clear bottle. Only reason I tried this is that my hotel has it for $0.25 during happy hour on Wednesdays. The second sip was only to confirm that the first sip really happened. Used the rest of the bottle as drain cleaner. (256 characters)

Landshark Lager was a light-bodied disappointment and, yes, I actually had some solid expectations. Ostensibly, I was expecting something of a lighter lager with tones of flavorful lime and refreshing hops, something I could easily down on one of these summer nights. Unfortunately, this is one of the most unremarkable beers I've tried in a while. The flavor is indicative of extreme amounts of corn and cheap grains, so much so that the "Margarittaville Brewing Company" label couldn't be further from an idea of what the final product actually tastes like. It is beyond and bland and almost entirely tasteless outside of overpowering corn. To make matters worse, my bottle wasn't as chilled as it could've been, which proved bad for about the first nine or ten ounces but detrimental and nearly undrinkable for the remaining two or so. For the brewing company's bestselling, most mainstream beer, it's surely a miserably tasteless and needless offering. (956 characters)

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. (314 characters)

Appearance - This is a pretty, light yellow in color, like a yellow highlighter, with a nice, big, easy, puffy head.

Smell - The corn here is slightly creamed and hops are completely absent.

Taste - The corn is horribly big at the taste.

Mouthfeel - This one felt pretty good in between the cheeks. It's light-bodied of course but the carbs felt good, not that cheap fizzy carbonation you get with a lot of offerings in this category.

Sinkability - The nasty corn is just too offense to try to plow through 12 full ounces. (526 characters)

Had this while traveling on business. Yellowish beer with whitish head that fizzled quickly. Smelled of very little. NOt much aroma to upgrade or downgrade score. Taste was kind of the same way. It was very cold at first and while cold I thought a cleaner flavor than the usual American Macro. Not much hop bitterness to speak of. But while it warmed it started to have a sulphur aroma and some flavors I did not like. Mouthfeel was fizzy and thin. I added about half a lime when my Shrimp Po Boy showed up and it improved the taste dramatically, but my ratings are without the lime. Overall not a good effort. (610 characters)

This beer isn't going to compete with any quality beers but it is a decent mild lager. If you're looking for a unique beer, avoid it, but if you want a refreshing beer, it works.

The smell of Landshark is good, in spite of being in a clear bottle, I've had imports that smell like a family of skunks died in the bottle, this one is good, and the taste is decent too. If you want a reasonably priced beer that is better than your average mass produced lager, this beer will fit the bill. (487 characters)

In the grand scheme of things Landshark is available all year round but should primarily be drank in the summer. It can be quite refreshing on a hot summer day. Better than Corona since you don't need to add a lime to it. Originally had on tap in Key West in Margaritaville, but better out of a bottle. (302 characters)

12 onz of beer in clear bottle.

Appearance: Pale yellow color with some white head.

Smells like corn and cooked veggies

Taste; some sweetness,grains and corn,some carbonation in there.(soda-like)

Mouthfeel : Very light body for this beer.

Notes: You have to give some credit to this beer for being brewed to the restaurant. FOr a big chains rest. with their own beer,nice. (377 characters)

Bottle pours a clear and sparkling, pale yellow body that is topped by a minuscle vanilla head. Aroma is stunted, with light notes of corn and a weak suggestion of vague hops. Light body is watery and heavily carbonated. Taste is unremarkable. Some adjunct sweetness and a balancing bitterness that is remotely suggestive of spicy hops. Nothing offensive here but as for an island lager give me a fresh Carib and some conch fritters. (433 characters)
