I had this on tap at the "Taste of Chicago" this year. The only choices were Bud, Miller, and Landshark, and at $5.50 a glass (plastic cup actually), I didn't want to spend that on a Budr or a Miller. so I went with the Landshark. Little did I know there wouldn't be that much difference between the three.
The beer was a crystal clear golden/yellow color that didn't make anything but a thin white rim for a head and even that disappeared in under a minute. No lacing.
The smell was pretty typical macro lager - faint malt and corn and even fainter hops.
The only thing I picked up in the taste that I didn't notice in the smell was a bit of lemon flavor. Other than that it tasted like standard macro lager. The malt and corn gave it some sweetness and the citrus hops are used to give it some balance. Not that great but not undrinkable either.
The mouthfeel was thin and watery and because it had only a moderate amount of carbonation, it wasn't all that crisp or refreshing either.
It's plenty drinkable with no foul tastes and a low alcohol content, but I definitely won't be seeking this one out again.
Serving type: on-tap

I thought Jimmy Buffet could have done better than this. I was wrong. Has a very "Euro" smell similar to Stella or Dab, etc. Looks like High Life, both in the bottle and the mug. Nothing overly fancy, just an Americanized version of a Euro Lager without the green bottle. Very crisp clean finish with a strong aftertaste. This is probably good if you need a quick fix to hit the Summer BBQ or pool party. That's about it. Not bad, but not that good. I would definitely pick Stella or something similar over this.
