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!

12 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks Jeff), pours an opaque dirty orange with a tiny white head. Nose screams limes above anything, with maybe a bit of the graham crackers buried deep under. Flavour is much sweeter than the nose suggests, probably from the marshmallows, as they are quite prominent, and then the lime comes in adding only very mild sourness. Quite a bit sweeter than expected, but certainly not cloying. As Iím not a huge lime fan in beer, this was substandard, but for what the concept was, itís passable.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
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. Very interesting beer. Pours orange brown. Nose of blood orange, lime, graham cracker and milk. Taste of lime, blood orange, cherry soda and graham cracker. Better than expected.

bhensonb (14888) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 4, 2010
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.

Ratman197 (14368) - 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.

Tmoney99 (14196) - 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.

djd07 (13678) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with medium frothy off white head. The aroma is a strong lime and spice. Thin mouthfeel with a very strong ginger flavor and lime with sugary finish. The key lime flavor is a little overpowering. Decent

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.
