This beer is a nice hazy yellow color with a thick head and an aroma is citrus and suggestive of sugary milk. The taste is fairly mild and less sweet than one would expect with a late and prolonged sharp bitterness. Full mouthfeel and soft carbonation that is very pleasant on the tongue and once swallowed. The finish has a fairly clear key lime acidity and flavor profile. A very nice beer.

Everyone I know that tried this, HATED this, but not me! I swapped my pina colada shakes (disappointed) for some of these because I loved them so much. I can imagine this hopped with galaxy too. OMG, please do it & can this baby more often.

16 oz. can. Hazy orange body with an ample white head. Smells of orange, lime, graham cracker, and a touch of vanilla. Took some warming for me to get all the adjuncts in the nose. Tastes much more strongly of lime. Cracker malt with some vanilla. Back end has a soapy combination of lime and graham cracker. Light body. Kinda gimmicky. I find myself searching for the key lime pie flavor instead of just enjoying a pale ale. Whether it comes together as a key lime pie flavor is debatable. It drinks pretty well either way.

Poured 16oz can into snifter. Color is a dirty yellow and cloudy with a 3 finger white head. A good amount of webbed lacing on my glass. Aroma is faint citrus, some lime pie filling along with sweet malt that kind of resembles graham crackers. Flavor is somewhat confusing on the pallet. It is semi sweet up front with the malts, hints of caramel and cracker with a touch of vanilla. Finish is citrusy and has some tart lime. Feel is a bit watery and light with some soft carbonation. This was enjoyable, but more of a novelty than a repeat drinker and I'm glad to have tried it.
