look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

A- This looks like your typical AAL, with a typically yellow hued coloration, super white head that starts out around 3 fingers thick (to my surprise!), but does quickly fizzle out with vigor.....it is noisy and before you can blink there is no head to be found. The liquid is super clear, and has many aggressively rising columns of big bristly looking carbonation. There is really no lacing to speak of as well, but rather a watery looking film that covers the inside of my glass as I swirl the brew around. Nothing groundbreaking here.....just an average looking macro style lager to look at.

S- Well, this certainly smells the part initially, with sweet boiled corn being upfront, however, if one tries to be fair to the beer, there is some caramel malt presence, along with dry unmalted grains. I will admit that there is a small amount of robustness wafting into my nasal passage, but at the end of the day, adjuncts and little to no hop finish is present.

T- Wow this is syrupy sweet! Corn syrup, overcooked corn and/or rice porridge and an excessive amount of maltose is present on the palate.......the finish is cloying/sticky with no hop bitterness.......really not much else to say here, but I would say in terms of overall flavor, this fits an above average grade, because quite frankly, there is some actual flavor happening here!

M- Light bodied, heavily carbonated and easy drinking best describe this one. Would I buy this again? Hell no! Would I drink this again? Why yes!......it's not a bad beer but it is nothing by far that one would or should write home about....for an AAL, it does the job and on a hot day I will not pass, but once this is 6 pack is gone my fridge will be one happy appliance!

Look: Urine-dark yellow with virtually no head.

Smell: A ton of yeast and corn, like a stronger Bud.

Taste: Very faint corn, a tiny bit stronger than Bud Light. Incredibly boring.

Mouthfeel: Decently carbonated, thin as water.

Overall: I know beers like this are supposed to just be for quickly drinking five of them without care at a beach bar, but there's much tastier options for that.

The taste similar to some of your Mexican pale lagers. There is some corn syrup there but it's not there excessively they try to sneak it on you. The corn syrup taste starts to manifest itself as the beer gets closer & closer to room temperature. I don't care if it is a little or a lot I don't want to taste any of that junk. Your going to need yourself a lime & shaker of salt for this one in Margaritaville. Cheers! C- (70-74) score range
