COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Key Lime Pie is made with fresh limes, milk sugar, graham cracker, and marshmallow fluff. The prominent flavors are immensely sweet, then tart, with subtle hints of graham cracker coming through in the nose and remain on the back of the palate. Key Lime Pie is a Gold Medal Winner at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.

12oz bottle from Tiffany's, Kalamazoo Michigan. Pour is hazy brown/copper. Trace white suds on top. Lime peel and homemade whipped cream scent, strangely accurate though I should say the lime scent is also reminiscent of lime away cleaner. Low carbonation at first with a watery mouth feel, feels bubblier upon swallowing. Tastes like very tart key limes with a light beer like corona. Not like they were mixed by the drinker, like they were deliberately brewed together. They pull it off well on this one though. Finish has some heat which I assume is from the large citrus content, pretty clean though. I like about 50% of the stuff I get from shorts but not usually their zany beers that are supposed to taste like other things (pb and j, strawberry shortcake, etc.) but I do like this one. Good enough to try one, not a whole 6pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Uhhhhh... Well this is weird... But I guess what was I expecting when I ordered a key lime pie beer? That being said, Iíve never had a key lime pie before so Iím only basing this off chobaniís Greek yogurt thatís 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. Itís like... Off-putting. Slightly. Sort of like a recipe someone would make drunk....... Hmmm... If this were like 8% Iíd be like ok maybe but itís like 5 and it just seems wrong.

chucklemation (839) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Pours a pale copper with a foamy white head that slowly fades to thin. Aroma is graham cracker and some key lime. Flavor is key lime with a subtle tartness, apple, vanilla, and some graham cracker. Finishes dry with a thin body. I didnít care for this one, sadly. Such a great concept, but the flavors just donít work.

Draft at GABF 2014 with Andrew, Mel and company. Pours a light body with white lacing. Aroma is lime, apple, grain and vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium to soft with notes of grainy cereal, malt, lime, lemon, apples - maybe some light graham cracker...

Bottle shared by beerman6686. Clear orange red pour with a slight white head. Aroma is of key lime pie, I can really pick out all the parts but it is super light. I would love bigger aroma here but itís there.

Bottle from trade, thanks Umich03jm! Pours golden brown with a white head. Smells like key lime pie, crust, whipped cream and all. Taste is a bit heavy on the graham cracker, with a good deal of lactose and the lime taking the back seat.
