20oct07. 12oz clear bottle. Clear yellow, white fizzy head. Aroma of pale malt lager. Flavor is very refreshing, crisp, and clean. I was expecting Bud in a clear bottle or a Corona impersonation. This was surprisingly refreshing. At $5.90 a bottle @ Margaritaville, LV... better off buying a 6pk of it back home.

Pours a clear yellow/golden color with big, fizzy, white head. Not much aroma to speak of, but what there was smelled a bit of corn. Taste is similar to that of Corona, but maybe actually weaker. Carbonation level is high. Not impressed. Then I found out it was an Anheuser-Busch product and I’m not surprised I didnt like it.

($1.29 - 12oz. single at Total Wine in Kennesaw, GA) Appearance: Pours an exceedingly pale yellow body with a large, creamy white head. Smell: Oh dear. Only the faintest whiff of puffed corn. Taste: Here goes nothing! Wow, that’s light. Notes of sweet corn. One single, solitary drop of lemon juice. That’s all! Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Watery. Drinkability: It doesn’t get more boring than this.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 Bought in Galveston --- Smell is of slightly sweet corn .. big head on the pour, dies down to decent foam pool, lacing is very impressive --- Taste on the first few sips, well frankly sucks! ...but after awhile it mellows out a bit , some sweet, skunk, metallic ugliness.... On The Beach Beer Only! -- dammit mark!

So my friend Buck says he’s got a new beer fer me 2 try.... it’s the Landshark. I says, "Buck that’s a Pale American Lager in yer cool box". Shur nuff Buck pulls her out, pops the top and I pour her up. Mmmmm I says, "I can barely taste the corn, unlike that crappy ’octoberfest styled Marzen’ Anheiser Busch makes". So I rate err up! As ye kan C she aint much to brag about... but hey if ya effer gotta chooz between any ole lite beer and this stuff.... go with the Shark. It’s definatly the lesser of 2 evils, but still evil none the less! Tell yer maw I says hi.

Pours typical industrial beer yeelow, with white head. Nothing really stands out, a little malt, very little hint of hops, and some malt & corn flavors. Not a bad brew, but not really my style. I can, however, see myself putting a few of these down as a lawn beer.

Bottle with the serial number: 07235JA50. Pours a golden yellow with a white head and unending carbonation. A little grassy scent. Nothing special in the mouth, light and watery are good descriptions. This appears to be Budweiser’s answer to Corona but I found it to be tastier than Corona. It’s supposed to be Jimmy Buffett’s gift to the beer world. Well I am not a Jimmy Buffett fan and my feeling about the beer is mutual.

Okay, not offensive in any way, but lacking taste. Wouldn’t go out of my way to drink this beer again, but wouldn’t turn one down at a tailgate.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 Well, well, well, what do we have here? Now Buffet’s restaurants make a mean margarita, that is true, so I thought it might be possible that they make a decent beer too, no? Ahhh ... an A-B product, I thought as I surveyed the label before a sniff. A bad copy of a Corona I was thinking after the first few sips of this insipid and uninspired beer. Actually, the last couple of Coronas that I had were not skunked ..making me wonder if they are using reduced hop extracts. In this Landshark it really doesn’t matter ... people who drink this regularly have no idea what a good beer is. And no, the line of ones in the rating is no mistake .... Wait .... no .... I change my mind. After looking at some of the high ratings of this beer, I must admit that it is extravagantly hopped, undeniably elegant, a perfect example of a beer brewed with a long fishing trip in mind. Er ...no.
