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.

Brewed with Marshmallow, lactose, lime ans Graham Crackers. Hazy amber beer, tiny white head. Crispy palate. Pleasant tangy lime. Minerals. Offset by lactose sweetness and a hint of biscuits! A pretty much perfectly flavoured novelty beer! Love Joe Shortís creativity!

A: The pour is a light amber color with almost no head. Thereís a bit of an opaqueness to the beer. S: The nose is a bit confusing. On the one hand, that could be lactobacillus there, but it could also be the limes providing that tart fruitiness. Thereís a bit of a funkiness which leads me to believe thereís some bugs. A very mild sweetness to the beer at times. T: Lime zest really stands out on the palate as I take the first few sips. Again, a slight tinge of lactobacillus, but it could just be the funky nature of this Shortís beer. A mild graham cracker sweetness and hints of sugar to go along with the tartness. M: The body is medium but the carbonation is on the low side. D: Hmmm, Iím still scratching my head on this one. There were some things I liked about it, but things I didnít. A bit like limeade, truth be told, with a bit more sweetness.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours hazy copper with a fine, foamy off-white head. Smells bready with just a hint of citrus/sour. Med body. The flavor is passing different. I think I get the graham cracker, and the sweet could be marshmallow. Thereís a touch of lime. Some brewers just have too much fun.

Tmoney99 (12741) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Draft sample at MBG 2010 Winterfest. Poured hazy reddish brown color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex lime aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Heavy creamy lime flavor with a medium to heavy sour lime finish of long duration. Refreshing brew that is a standout.

bu11zeye (12405) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2010
(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.

Ratman197 (12152) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of lime, cookie and some lactic notes, hope it tastes better than it smells. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of lime, and light cookie with a crisp dry lightly tart finish.

12 ounce bottle as a kickass bonus from deyholla. Thanks! This was a big want of mine, and as such, I wanted to save it to share or at least not drink right away, but hell, I want to try it and I just got back from a big GOTV rally with President Obama, which certainly doesnít happen everyday, so I figured itís a good day, what the heck? Anyway, this pours a hazy copper color with a medium creamy head that eventually fades to nothing. Aroma of lime, caramel, nutty and grainy notes that are truly reminiscent of a graham cracker crust. The taste is lime, that same graham cracker crust and a caramel finish. Medium bodied. Even at under 6% I find this to be a sipper, and certainly not one you could drink several of in a sitting, but still, itís quite an interesting beer and one Iím glad to have tried.
