look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Poured from the 12 oz clear bottle into a pilsner glass. I feel this is somewhat unnecessary, I can see what the beer looks like and know what to expect. A clear, golden, yellow beer with my pour producing a white head about 1 inch in height that quickly fades away.

Smell: No malt, no hops, just sweet adjunct. I'm leaning toward corn. Not overly enticing, but it's not made this way to smell nice.

Taste: An overt sweetness to the beer, it did have a little bitterness on the end, but it does not balance out the sweet adjunct flavors, which I am going to go with corn, sweet corn. The advantage to the flavor is there is not a lot of it and it does not linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Light and watery; the beer does have good carbonation which keeps it lively. Crisp, with a clean (read no) aftertaste.

Overall: I would not have bought this if it had not been $20 for a case with a $10 rebate. Still, I ended up giving away 2 of the 6 packs. I just didn't want a case after a couple of these. Interesting enough my bottle looks just like the picture, except instead of Jacksonville, FL it says St. Louis, MO. Found that a bit odd. Not recommended, will not buy again.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pale yellow with a white head that receeds too quickly. The lacing is decent though.

Smell: Sweet corn.

Taste: Sweet corn with artificial sweetener.

This beer isn't too offensive but it's way too sweet and there's really nothing good about it.

Landshark is by far the smoothest American Style Lager on the market. It has a fairly light body and mild hop bitterness. There is some good malt sweetness with zero aftertaste. The taste is not complex, and this will cause Landshark to get low scores from craft beer drinkers, but I would recommend this beer for people who normally drink light beer, but want to try a regular beer.

I'm not sure I find it helpful or relevant when folks rate a beer like Land Shark and use a language that clearly shows that they are comparing it to darker or more full bodied beers like reds and browns. I respect your opinions, but in my mind rating a beer does not mean you rate it as to the preference of the beer type you prefer. Would you compare a Riesling to a Cabernet? Of course not. Can you imagine rating a Riesling and then saying you detected no tannins? If you are going to compare or rate Land Shark Lager, then wouldn’t it be better to compare and rate it against other light lagers? I like reds and browns better too, but certainly not on a hot summer day. Sometimes I just want a lighter beer so I can eat my burger and then go out and toss the frisbee around on the beech. So compared to other lagers of similar weight, Land shark is a darned good beer. It has a hint of citrus, grass, and just a tiny hint of grains and corn—just as a light, refreshing, thirst quenching lager should.
