A - This clear golden brew comes in a glass bottle that could cause serious skunkage, and throws up a fizzy and short lived bone white head. No real lace to speak of, but head retention is slightly better than other pale lagers.

S - Corn tortillas with salt. Cornbread malt profile with a very light peppery hop note. This does a better job approximating a real pilsener than some other macro "pilseners," but it still smells like loads of adjucts.

T - Biscuity and peppery. Very much in the vein of a lighter German pils. I'm really surprised by how different this is from what I was expecting. I thought that this would be another Mexican, Bahamian, macro beach beer but this shows a bit more character than others. It's still pretty light and corny, but it does have some saaz hop characteristics and a nice firm bicsuity malt backbone.

M - Light bodied and highly carbonated. The finish is pretty sweet, and that kills the whole German pils vibe that this beer almost has going for it.

D - This is a step above typical beach party clear golden lagers, but it's really nothing special. I would gladly drink a few of these Corona killers on a scorching day at the beach, but I probably wouldn't buy this intentionally. This sample was kindly provided to me by the husband of a lady that I work with...I have a reputation at work as "the beer guy," and he graciously sent one of these to work with his wife for me to try (at home of course).

This beer is a nice golden yellow color sorta like a corona color, it smells great and taste similar to a light beer mixed with corona. its really easy drinking beer and i could drink this easily on a hot summer day or with a nice meal. Its not a heavy beer so its perfect for me.

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.
