A fair amount of lime. Not too sweet, but enough to balance the lime well. Get some bread and such as well. Good stuff.

Bottle thanks Dalzale. Pour is amber orange which appears hazy. Aroma is big lime and sour. Taste is more lime and malt and some spice. Palate is calm and chaulky. Not bad, glad I had a chance to have some.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours hazy amber with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is candied lime slices, and cookie dough. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of graham cracker, marshmallow, and sugar. Overall body is moderate and sweet. This is a really strange and confused brew that didnít seem to quite execute properly.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Draught) Pours a cloudy amber body with a spare white head. Aroma of frozen key lime pie, caramel, cream cheese, and graham cracker. Flavor of caramel, pie crust, bread, light key lime, loads of sugar, and graham cracker. Sugary and unbalanced. Ingredents are conflicting with each other.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Misty brown with a lacy beige head. Leaves a profusion of lacy speckles. Nose is lime honey and sour cream. Weird indeed. Medium body with a tart tang. Taste is lime, but not so sour, and creamy marshmallow. Notes of brown sugar and wheat bread i guess come from the crackers. Iím always amazed at how well their additives hold up in the flavor. Oddly tasty this one.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from manny57. Slightly hazy brown pour, little carbonation and a odd funky malty aroma. Flavor is malt, I guess a little sweet graham cracker, and some barely noticeable weird lime on the finish. I really wanted to like this, but I think I may have had a bad bottle (or maybe itís one of those thatís only amazing on tap.) I have another bottle in the fridge, so I will rerate after that one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy amber pour. No real head. Limes, lactose, honey, apple cider aroma. Flavor has some lemon/lime qualities, maybe some crusty flavors. Odd beer. Really odd.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mostly translucent orange amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of ginger, hints of lime, other random spices. Not really like key lime pie, except maybe the crust. The flavor I was getting again the ginger, maybe some marshmallow and a touch of lime.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at GABF 2010. I donít like Key Lime Pie, so I went into this beer expecting the worst. Dark brown pour. Aroma of lime and graham crackers. Flavor is dead one. Lots of lime and marshmallow, graham crackers, pie crust. Delicious. Great mouthfeel, good carbonation. Shortís is putting out the best most experimental beers in America.

Tuesday Tasting sample thanks to grownfool. Off white head over a caramel orange body. Aroma is marshmellow, lime. Taste is key lime, more marshmellow, not really making me think key lime pie.
