2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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 it’s 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.

Amber colored pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Spicy aroma similar to cinnamon. Taste is slightly fruity with the cinnamon coming through. Do not taste lime nor fluff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
