look: 4 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1.5

Poured from a 12 oz into a standard pint. This one could be a little old, the old folks were gifted it, and then regifted it to the bottom of their fridge for some one who dared...

Appearance: Surprising nice. Crystal clear, of course, but the head lasted atleast 3 minutes on an aggressive pour. Looks great for the style, though it kind of looks like it's trying too hard to be a Mexican adjunct lager.

Smell: Some of the worst that adjunct lager smell has to offer. Malt, Keystone light, sugar.

Taste: There was "corn" and crap malt up front, which wasn't offensive. That bled into sugar. Lots of sugar. Is this beer soda? I actually gagged on first sip. I don't want to pour this, but I might. This is one of the most offensive adjunct lagers I've ever had. Second gulp let the sugar settle with me a little more. Do people drink this though? Third gulp felt more like a gluten free beer i had earlier with lunch, but that was better. Fourth gulp made me realize how bad this is on the tongue, and how much sucks to smell as it comes to your mouth. This is really unsettling beer.

Mouthfeel: Really light with good moderate carbonation, actually. I'm surprised at how well they had the adjunct mouthfeel down. If this had a taste I could keep in my mouth besides forcing myself to analyze how they did with mouthfeel I may actually recommend it to people who drink the style regularly.

This is like if junk local adjunct tried to make a weird Mexican lager crossover. Mexican lager is already not usually good, this is bad. I think they could save this by investing in better ingredients, but that would probably cut into the profit margin. Also, killing the bottle cost and using a "plain" bottle and label may help cut costs to increase actual quality. While the appearance and mouthfeel are actually not bad, the funk smell and awful taste are bad enough to cut into my overall. This shouldn't be bought. Buy Tecate, Dos Equis or even Corona before this.

LandShark Lager

Poured from 12 ounce bottle into pilsener style glass. Served Wisconsin in the garage during winter cold.

A) Light golden, pretty clear, I can watch the game through this. Two fingers of foam settled quickly to a dusting. A little bit of lacing as well.

S) Very very light malt a little bit of whole-grain cereal aroma. A bit of grass as well.

T) A nice grassy bitterness actually, and then it kind of finishes little bit sweet. Not really too sweet, and not artificial. While this lager doesn't have an immense amount of flavor, what it does have is not offensive.

M) This is light bodied, and certainly has a good jolt of carbonation. Really it's crisp and pretty easy drinking. The finish is nice and clean.

O) What can I say, I wasn't disappointed with this one. It's a pretty good lawnmower beer. It is what it is. I would rather drink this, than most other Macro swill.
