My wife and I were turned on to this beer while vacationing in Florida. We had an unscheduled stop in Clermont FL due to brake problems. Since we were stuck for the night, we went to the hotel bar (Days Inn Clermont) and had an interesting pizza (loaded baked potato pizza) and shot some pool. Of course we had to have beer, and we usually order Corona Extra, but they were out. Bartender suggested Landshark. I’m glad she did.

The clear bottle gives you an immediate look in to what you’re about to have. Crisp, amber colored lager. We drank straight from the bottle so I can’t tell you about the head, but I imagine it would be average. We actually liked the taste of this better than Corona, so it looks like Landshark will replace it in our regular beer.

It doesn’t have the weird aftertaste that many beers have as it gets warmer, to me anyway. So that equates to perfect warm weather beer, or even a cool down from sweaty activities.

Beer snobs won’t appreciate it for what it is, but that’s ok. If we all wanted the same thing, we might as well be robots!

Decent for a light, after-work beer, or even to have with a steak dinner. More complex than your typical American adjunct lager, even though mass produced and not the best. Smells like stale crackers and bread, tastes like sour corn and old bread. Not all that great, but not terrible. Better than most mass produced light beers but certainly not anything worth going out of the way for.

Has nothing that I like about light lagers and everything I don't like.

Very clear golden color with nice carbonation topped by two fingers of soapy white head.

Smells like grains and yeast. Faint hops way in the back somewhere. The smell is very bready.

Taste is like clean water with the grains and yeast crackling across the tounge with that carbonation. Again a very faint hint of the hops way in the background.

Mouth is light and refreshing with a crisp finish.

While nothing overwhelming or complex this really fits for a hot summer or tropical beach beer. None of that skunky funk like some Mexican lagers. Really awesome to have no skunk with this extremely clear bottle. I have to rate this for what it is, that summer or beach beer I would like to drink. And for that I actually like this one! Cheers!

This is a easy drinking summer beer. Don't expect much in the way of complexity; this is a beer produced by Budweiser as the house beer for the Margaritaville chain of restaurants and casinos. That being said it is more flavorful than your everyday Bud. Supposedly developed to replace Corona, it is a smooth taste without the " skunky" taste of Corona.

Pleasant as a summer refresher, much better than typical yank lager... but could never ever compete against German or Czech lagers - or any European larger for that matter...

Landshark is a great summer beer. Living in Massachusetts I wouldn't touch the stuff during the cold months, but on a hot day it's a very refreshing beer. Best thing out of Margaritaville for sure.

After trying this beer this summer, it has quickly become my new favourite. After taking a liking to the Kona Brewing Company’s lineup, I found that Landshark follows in that island-style brewing tradition that is light and tasty, and especially refreshing on a hot summer day. Give it a shot, it’s great!

Bright dark straw/light golden color with moderate activity. Slightly foamy white 2-3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with mediocre legs and swirl reaction. Flavors of sweet grains, lemon, caramel, and floral hops. Slick medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Slightly oily but still well bodied. Light strength finish, grainy and a bit flowery but not that much. No adjunct feel. Great freshness and well balanced. Solid brew overall, very good quality craft for an adjunct compared to other popular macro brands.
