Drank from a 12 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Sav-Mor Liquors, Medford, MA
Served in a pint glass

A one-inch tall, bright white crown topped the brassy colored liquid. The head slowly faded to a lasting ring. Streaks of lacing clung to the glass.

The nose was decent. Grainy malts dominated. Some light, candy-like sweetness. A crisp, powdery, lager yeast quality was noticeable as well.

The flavor profile was respectable and quite similar to the aroma. Grainy malts were most apparent. Somewhat sweet on the front end. Crisp, slightly lemony and tart in the center. The finish tasted adjunct ridden however. Some skunk came through initially but it dissipated with time.

The mouthfeel was extremely light and airy. I found the overtly bubbly, aggressive carbonation annoying.

I have an intense disdain for Jimmy Buffet and everything that he stands for, and I really wanted to hate this beer as well. Unfortunately for me, it seemed pretty decent for the style. This might not be a bad beer to have at the beach on a hot day. Then again, there are so many better options out there.

I really wanted to enjoy this beer but the first whiff of skunky aroma turned me off right away. Nothing special about it exept for the marketing. Who wouldn't want a landshark advertising surfboard. I will not be buying it again. Add a little lime to it to make it palatable for the summer.
