Type

The Beer Advocate reports that LandShark beer is a clear, light golden American adjunct lager with a light, foamy head.

Controversy

In 2006, LandShark lager was introduced under Jimmy Buffet's brand, Margaritaville Brewing Company. LandShark is one of the main sponsors of Buffet's concerts and is sold at Margaritaville restaurants in Florida. In 2007, an Anheiser-Busch spokesperson confirmed that LandShark is actually brewed by Anheiser-Busch, according to an article published in "The Palm Beach Post."

Lager

Lager comes from the German word "lagern," which means "to store." Lagers are often a tavern's house beer. Beer 101 explains that lagers are fermented in low temperatures of 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the yeast in these beers settles at the bottom of the bottle. Lagers are stored for several weeks or months before serving.
