Bought as part of the liscense with Canadian Brick Brewing. Pours a straw yellow body with some minimal head, and evidently effervescent carbonation. The aroma has some faint alcohol, a touch of sharp hoppiness, and then the rest being a clean barley malt bill. The taste is mainly just malty, but still crisp with a bit of noble hops. The sweetness is moderately sweet though nowhere near too much, just generally good. The beer is fairly dry and definitely easy drinking, overall this is a pretty good experience, and a great super bowl beer to pair with wings.

This beer had an extremely light gold color, with an almost sour smell that reminded me of an old corona. The taste was very watery and not heavily carbonated, no hint of hops and a slight taste of sweet grain. When it comes to a summer beer corona has this beat by a mile. Way too flat and and the flavor that this beer has isn't good.

Some of you "experts" who apparently think that a beer in a clear bottle is automatically gonna be skunky?! And some of you think every beer in a clear bottle must be compared to Corona? Why? Is Corona so effin special? Landshark Lager is a good beer. Usually not hoppy enough for my taste, maybe a bit too sweet of a finish. But smooth, and for fook's sake not swill like some have posted. Let's give some credit where it's due.

473 ml can served into a pint glass. Leftovers from a family gathering.

Appearance - Pale golden color, initially a decent finger and change of white head is poured, but when I turned back around the head was gone. No lacing to speak of.

Smell - Not much here, some faint grainy notes and nothing offensive.

Taste - Some clean grainy flavors and the adjuncts don't leap out of the glass at you. Decent enough and I can imagine this being better in the hot weather.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied, but lacking just a bit in carbonation. A bit of a chalky finish too.

Overall - A decent AAL that is better than some and worse than some. Wouldn't turn one down on a hot day, but would otherwise pass.

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.
