2.53/5  rDev -3.8%

The first time I heard about this beer was from a neon light at a restuarant in rural Arizona back in December. I thought it was a regional beer, but to my surprise I later discovered it was an AB product brewed in Florida. Now I can find it in a number of stores, such as Tom's Farm, where I purchased a single bottle. On to the beer:

Pale banana skin yellow in color, the head is fuzzy, bubbly, and holds up adequately. My nose is picking up signs of milled sweet corn and ethanol. Hey, is this a High Life? Could be, as it tastes similar to one, but with some rough edges. Okay at first sip, floral upfront with corn, it turns into boiled corn with bits of hot alcohol poking throguh the cracks. This beer is light in the mouth with a spritzy carbonation.

Passable hot weather brew and a small step above other island lagers. But this beer is not cheap, usually close to $9 a six-pack. Keep this beer cold.

(This review was done outdoors on a warm summer day listening to "Margaritaville".)

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.

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.

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.

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.

2.93/5  rDev +11.4%

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.

2.13/5  rDev -19%

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.
