Pour is a nice yellow with some carbonation and small foamy head. Had the traditional grain smell, little soapy with a mild skunk mixed in. Taste is simple, very light and easy drinking. Notes of grain, mild hops, corn, and grass. Finish is light and clean, easy to sip all day in the hot sun without leaving you too out of it. I would snag this on the beach for sure plus have to give Mr Buffett a little love.
Cheers.

nice clear golden appearance with a nice white head that quickly recedes and leaves some lace. notes of sweet grain, hay, skunk, etc. not the best, but easy drinking and very light bodied. ideal for a hot day.

From a bottle, it pours a clear straw with a white fizzy head. Faint aroma of corn. You know it's a Summer beer when the carbonation is more pronounced than either the malt or the hops. Mouth feel is thin. OK, as Summer fare, but nothing special.

I enjoy Landshark every now and then. It's decently priced for the quality and is refreshing on a hot day. I'd compare it to Corona Extra with less skunkyness. Mind you this review is coming from someone who usually drinks stouts. This is one of my 2-3 go to cheap light tasting beers.

I was going to be all cute and stuff...but for a macro lager, this looks incredible. It features a lustrous straw colored body (maaaaybe a bit on the light side), plus a big and fluffy white colored head that has good retention and excellent lacing to boot! But when it comes to the aroma...oh yeah, I'm going to be cute. Dem cooked veggies and cotton candy notes doe! There's actually a touch of palpable, nuanced malt coming through, too bad that's ruined by a distinct petroleum character that rears its ugly head once this opens up. I actually taste some pleasant maltiness to start - too bad the finish is cheap and littered with cooked veggies, corn, and cotton candy. The feel is way too heavy for a simplistic refresher, but at least it's not overcarbonated. Well, it has more flavor than a typical BMC brew, but no way I would want one of these over a Pilsner Urquell or Bohemia. In fact, I'll likely never have it again (because let's be honest, who's going to bring this to a party instead of the more ubiquitous BMC or hipster-baity Schlitz/PBR?)

1.98/5: Wasting away again in Margaritaville wouldn't be a good thing if this was the only libation available

I found these on sale at the local supermarket, buy one six pack get another free. I had never tried it so I though why not. I soon found out why not. When I got home I fixed a late dinner and had a couple of these. About two hours later I thought I was going to get sick. This lasted for a couple of hours, then tailed off to just a weak nausea.

I still had ten of these in the refrigerator, so a couple of days later I thought I would have one. I was giving it the benefit of the doubt. One more was enough to convince me. This stuff is vile.

It has a somewhat sweet taste. This makes me think it's loaded with high fructose corn syrup, something that many American beers now have. I have never experienced nausea before from HFCS, so I am thinking there are some other vile chemicals in here as well. My recommendation: Avoid this swill.

Overall meh. Just not enough of anything. Color is standard yellow, normal cream, nothing stands out where flavor is concerned.

L - pale yellow, lots of foamy head but disappeared quick
S - sour smell, not very appealing - not so much noticeable if drinking directly from the bottle
T - not so much has of a taste while drinking it; aftertaste a little unusual (its just not for me)

Overall - There's better options but 'ok' for a hot afternoon.

Lands hark pours pee yellow with no head. Skunk smell. Taste is a little skunky, malty, and corn flavors. Okay feel. Overall nothing special, not the worst.

landshark is landshark, the best mexican-style lager you can get (but that really doesnt say much since mexican-style lagers suck). drink near a beach or pool, or dont drink it at all.
