3.7/5 rDev +7.6%
Appearance: a deep earthy orange. forms a small whitish head that fades pretty quickly but leaves a ring around the top of the beer. Completely hazy and opaque. Medium amount of sediment floating around in there. 3.75/5
Smell: ehh not so appealing. I get super strong candy sugar sweetness that mixes awkwardly with a hint of key lime. a bit of graham cracker falls in behind. 2.75/5
Taste: opens with a nice taste of key lime, a large wave of sweetness comes in, fairly creamy and pretty rich. backend has notes of slightly stale graham crackers. Luckily rather than clashing as in the smell, the flavors blend fairly nicely. 4/5
Mouthfeel: thick, almost syrupy. feels strong than 5.75% but it kinda works for the beer. 3.75/5
Overall: an odd one for sure, but I think it worked well, not quite like as good as the other shorts weird ones but not bad.

3.53/5 rDev +2.6%
A - Pours a dark orange with a two-finger white head. The dissapates quickly leaving light sticky lacing.
S - Aromas of key lime, bready malt, and graham cracker.
T - The flavor opens up with bitter key lime. Key lime fades into toasted graham crackers, marshmallow, and lots of malt. Flavors come together more when the beer warms.
M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel.
O - This was interesting to say the least. Worth trying, but not my favorite Short's beer.

2.9/5 rDev -15.7%
12 0z bottle poured into pint glass
A- dark rusty orange, little visibility, foamy thick head with good retention and nice lacing
S- malt, citrus, spices, bread
T- tons of sweetness candied sugar, malts, vanilla, and graham cracker, lime, and a little hops on the end
M-thick and syrupy with little carbonation feels heavy and flat
O- I love key lime pie but was not a huge fan of this. Way to sweet and malty for my taste and did not like the mouthfeel. Points for originality and uniqueness though!
