Dark amber, darker than expected. ARoma is tangy caramel and a wine like thing. Same in taste with earthiness. Not that great. Overpriced novelty.

Bottle courtesy of my friend Lance. Thanks! Cloudy amber to near brown pour with a medium, foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, light limes/citrus, graham crackers and grains. Taste is slight tart limes, sweet malt, grains, graham crackers and light cream/marshmallow. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more tart limes, caramel, sweet malt, grains, graham cracker notes, candied fruit and light cream/marshmallow notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled in a glass that was poured from a bottle,
there were some chunks (about the size of a gnat or a touch larger) of white stuff on top of the beer in the bottle before I popped the cap, the specks were still there on top after pouring the beer into the glass, it does not look good at this point, after I swirled the beer around a bit, the chunks were bigger, probably marshmallow in the beer,
this beer was a medium dark orange with a little gold in the glass, there was some haze,
the pour made a less than half finger white cover that receded quickly to a tiny ring at the edge of the glass with a quarter size island of tiny bubbles in the center, hardly any lacing at all,
some sweetness I believe to be the milk sugar, light malt, a bit of bread and graham cracker,
a faint citrus fruit but it does not resemble lime, faint orange,
the flavors were sugar, bread malt with graham cracker, and some lime like citrus fruit, there was some fruit sour-tartness,
there was a small back and forth of sweet and citrus sour-tart in the drink,
a light mouth feel, no creaminess to it, there was average carbonation,
I tried many bottles over the years, none of them were that great,
the flavor was closer to being a key lime pie than the nose, the nose did not resemble key lime,
I do not know why I keep buying this beer every few years, I guess I hope it comes closer to being what it was intended to be, but it doesn’t,
a disappointment of a drink.

Draft at MBG fest (also bottle) from notes. Pours a hazy copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have graham crackers, tart key lime, sweet creamy topping, pretty much what they were going for. Bottle was not up to the standards of the draft.

Poured a darker orange with a white head. Aroma was of caramel, lactose. Flavor simular, really sweet, light lime, caramel and lactos. Weird and not great.

Pour at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Light amber pour. Odd nose on this - malt with a hint of lime. Sweet beer, slight lime in the finish. Cool to try, but I could not drink much of this.

Key lime pie has a very good flavor. Tastes like a lime flavor initially with a subtle ending. Would drink again

Uhhhhh... Well this is weird... But I guess what was I expecting when I ordered a key lime pie beer? That being said, I’ve never had a key lime pie before so I’m only basing this off chobani’s Greek yogurt that’s key lime pie with Graham crackers and white chocolate. Maybe dropping a Chuck of white chocolate in this beer would fix it... Hmm...

Wow... What a thing this is... Heavy and sweet and weird. It’s like... Off-putting. Slightly. Sort of like a recipe someone would make drunk....... Hmmm... If this were like 8% I’d be like ok maybe but it’s like 5 and it just seems wrong.
