From notes. Tasted from a 12oz bottle. Pours cloudy light brown with a thick white head that leaves solid lace. The nose is astringent lime with a hint of graham cracker sweetness. The flavor is sweet and astringent lime with some maltiness and a graham cracker and marshmallow back. The body is full with light carbonation and a long marshmallow and graham cracker finish.

12 oz. bottle via trade with manny57 - Pours a hazy amber color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head that faded pretty quick. Faint spotty lacing. Aroma is light citrus and toasted malt. Flavor is basically the same. Medium body. This was the one Short’s beer I wanted to try, but honestly, it was a bit of a let down. Just didn’t come across with the aromas and flavor of a Key lime pie. Oh well, glad I had the chance to try it. Thanks Ryan.

Ah, crazy shorts and their concoctions. Thank you for brewing these oddities, no one in my state has any balls to experiment. Bubbly, hazy amber with next to no head. Aroma of lime, graham, malt and a touch sour. Taste is citric and acidic with lime, malt and marshmallow, though perhaps that’s by suggestion from the label. A bit salty as well. Nothing stellar, but gets the job done.

A: The pour is a light amber color with almost no head. There’s 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. There’s a bit of a funkiness which leads me to believe there’s 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 Short’s 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, I’m still scratching my head on this one. There were some things I liked about it, but things I didn’t. A bit like limeade, truth be told, with a bit more sweetness.

A fair amount of lime. Not too sweet, but enough to balance the lime well. Get some bread and such as well. Good stuff.

portableparty (2362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle thanks Dalzale. Pour is amber orange which appears hazy. Aroma is big lime and sour. Taste is more lime and malt and some spice. Palate is calm and chaulky. Not bad, glad I had a chance to have some.

dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle pours hazy amber with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is candied lime slices, and cookie dough. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of graham cracker, marshmallow, and sugar. Overall body is moderate and sweet. This is a really strange and confused brew that didn’t seem to quite execute properly.

bu11zeye (13029) - 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.

3.5
TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2010
12 oz bottle. Misty brown with a lacy beige head. Leaves a profusion of lacy speckles. Nose is lime honey and sour cream. Weird indeed. Medium body with a tart tang. Taste is lime, but not so sour, and creamy marshmallow. Notes of brown sugar and wheat bread i guess come from the crackers. I’m always amazed at how well their additives hold up in the flavor. Oddly tasty this one.
