12oz bottle thanks to northernbrews, thanks Jeff! Pours a clear copper red with no head and lacing, aroma is sweet with some marshmellow and a hint of lime, the flavor has a little more lime than the aroma does, not as much as I was hoping for, mouthfeel is a little light, cool beer to try.

Aroma of sour apples and smoked cereal. Appears hazy orange-copper with white foam and lots of lace. Tastes like Graham cracker crust and a hint of meringue. Fizzy, a bit oily palate. Overall, a tasty desert beer!

Tap. Opaque copperish color. Great head on pour followed by nice lace. Super creamy body. Nose of graham cracker, bit of smoke. Tastes simultaneously of "beer" and "key lime pie." Refreshing lime, very apparent graham cracker. A novelty, but good.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/18/2014. Pours slightly hazy orange amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart lime, biscuit, graham cracker, toast, vanilla, cream, light caramel, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of bready malt, lime, lactose, and other adjunct notes with light hop presence; and solid strength. Taste of lightly tart lime, biscuit, graham cracker, toast, vanilla, cream, light caramel, and herbal earthiness. Light tartness and minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lime, biscuit, graham cracker, toast, vanilla, cream, light caramel, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of bready malt, tart limes, lactose, and other adjunct flavors; with a great malt/adjunct balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and slightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice experimental fruit beer. All around well balanced and nicely robust bready malt, lime, lactose, and other adjunct flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

I wasn’t expecting much but this actually wasn’t so bad. Lime and meringue, grains, a bit of caramel and even a graham cracker finish. Pretty smooth and not bad in small doses.

Pours amber with a thin ivory head. Malt, Lime, and alcohol aromas. Bold lime flavor with marshmallow, cream, and citrus notes. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. I am a big fan of key lime pie dessert and I really liked this beer. I thought the flavors were bold and unique.

Key Lime Pie is a beer that does exactly what it sets out to. Sweet and tangy with heavy lime (funnily enough). Biscuit and graham cracker comes through on the back end. Goes well with dessert - drinking this on its’ own may be somewhat cloying and over the top.

Bottle, pours an orangey amber. Lime and bready malt in the aroma and taste. Ok but hardly worth seeking out.

The Key Lime Pie pours a rusty bronze orange color with a small beige head that doesn’t last too long. The aroma is graham cracker and lime. The flavor is lime and sugar with the graham cracker in the finish. Overall this is a decent beer but quite unique.

Interested. Some lime bread aroma amber like pour not much head. Some bread lime graham and milk. Light carbonation. Interesting. Prolly hit their mark but key like beer is what it is.
