Landshark Beer Review
If you haven't tried Landshark Beer, don't let another summer go by fooling yourself into believing that it's just another one of those "island style" lagers designed to make you believe you're in the Bahamas feeling tropical, giddy, lose and free. Landshark tastes good just about anywhere and at any time of season, night or day, but it is mostly for a hot summer day. You will get a wide number of varying views of Landshark Beer opinions on the internet. The most surprising opinions I've read are that it is similar to Corona or a cheap version of Budweiser. As someone who likes neither Corona, nor Bud, I assure you that it tastes nothing like either of those beers. What makes Landshark different?
Refreshing, but Hearty
Landshark beer is a light-colored lager with quite a bit more flavor and substance than Corona. While Landshark beer has a bit of the skunky aroma, it has a much fuller body than Corona. If you like heavier, darker micro-brews, as do I, then you might appreciate the cold refreshing flavor of Landshark on a warm summer day. On the other hand, if you're looking for the complexities of a Microbrew, then you might not care for Landshark lager. It is light flavored, but not so light on taste as it's summer color might make you believe. Landshark beer is a refreshing summer beverage with soul.When I tried Landshark for the first time, I had a hard time putting my finger on what separates it from other summer style lagers. The difference with Landshark is not only taste, but texture as I'll explain:
Key Tasting Notes and Qualities
Medium-light taste and a foamy champagne-like effervescence that takes its pleasant time dissolving in the back of your mouth. Your taste buds will appreciate the way this lager quenches your thirst and taste for a substantive beer without filling you up. There is nothing complex about the flavor of this light summer-style beer, but it does have a bit of green apple tang to it as it goes down and finishes in your mouth. The carbonation is far more pleasing to me than Corona, which reminds me more of carbonated water and lacks the full-bodied white foaminess of Landshark. Not everyone always agrees on taste as I pointed out in my Sobieski Vodka review. I can understand why some beer drinkers are critical of Landshark Beer. It's not a cheap beer and the first time I tried it, I thought it reminded me of a typical American beer. It wasn't until I opened up a bottle on a hot summer day that I appreciated it's unique, refreshing carbonation and after-taste. With all of its hype, if you don't find Landshark lager to your liking, I can understand your dissapointment. However, if you haven't taken a cold bottle out to the pool or your backyard on a hot summer day, don't be too quick to judge Landshark Beer.
