Landshark Lager was supposedly developed as the in-house beer for Jimmy Buffett's chain of Margaritaville restaurants. It has since taken on a life of its own and can pretty much be found everywhere. Just by looking at the clear bottle and the yellow liquid inside, one can easily guess that this is supposed to be similar to Corona or other "beach beers."

Landshark pours a somewhat goldish yellow color. Slightly more than a finger of foam forms but thins out really quick. The aroma is light, with just some whiffs of grain present along with the familiar musty adjunct smell. No skunk, surprisingly. Not surprisingly, the mouthfeel of the brew was thin and very fizzy. The taste all around is pretty inoffensive. It is a bit light in flavor, with the main flavor notes being the grains and an adjunct flavor that strikes me as a combination of corn, grass, and a tiny bit of wet paper. A light citric hop presence could be detected as well, but the beer lacks any true bitterness. The aftertaste is quite clean, with the grains and the corny/grassy flavor lingering on. No alcoholic warmth to be found here.

This actually turned out better than I expected, as I was going into this thinking it would be quite putrid. Definitely a hot weather beer, and as such it should be consumed very cold.

Pours from the 12 oz can a fairly decent pale yellow with a giant foamy head that quickly settles into a modest collar. We have the usual macrobrew fizziness going on inside the glass. Aroma is of wet grass clippings left overnight in the rain. 1st sip is a bland, some what watery mix of straw, overcooked veggies, and maybe a hint of lemon rind. Palate is light and fizzy. Overall, it's your basic bland fizzy macro beer, the kind of stuff that will be a big hit on $2 draft night at the local dive bar. Glad I didn't pay for this one...
