Can. This was pretty decent. I enjoy key lime flavors. I don't know how many of these I could have but what I tried was pretty fun. It had some elements of vanilla in there to balance out the lime.

12oz can poured into a plastic cup at Disney's Old Key West Resort Hospitality House bar. Slow pour reveals a golden colored beer with a bit of haze and virtually no head. Aroma consists mainly of fresh key limes with some wheat and yeast. Taste is actually like a key lime pie beer: tart key limes, biscuity grain tastes like graham crackers, cracked wheat and yeast along with some very modest hops. Lighter body, lower carbonation, finishes more sweet than bitter. Overall, nothing I'd buy again, but fits the mood here in Florida. However, if you are looking for a key lime pie beer, this is it!

Pretty clear and deep gold. Thin white head that fades quickly with no lacing left behind. The aroma is full of line, wheat and some sweetness. A sweet and bitter beer with some wheat taste and a lot of key lime. There is a mild sweetness and a bitter finish. This is a nice, refreshing wheat beer.

Had a can of this at Olivia's at the Olde Key West Resort when we went for lunch.
Poured into a regular shaker pint glass from a 12 oz. can. No dating the can.

Appearance: Crystal clear golden yellow body with the smallest amount of head. Dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.

Aroma: Plenty of lime and vanilla sweetness, other than that, not much else.

Taste/Moutfeel: Plenty of lime, but not a lot tartness to it. Plenty of vanilla-graham cracker sweetness, a little too much. Thin body with an easy drinkability.

Overall: Not something I would really seek out and try again. It was ok, but it does remind you of a key lime pie. If the sweetness could be dialed back a bit it might be a little bit better.

We bought it as a joke but were surprised about how much it tasted like key lime pie. Not that you're always looking for that in a beer but certainly interesting and drinkable

When you like to drink craft beer you experience all kinds of quality. From poor mediocre to excellent. I find most excellent beers are brewed by guys with formal training but sometimes a rookie can make a good beer. I have tried craft in at least 25 states. This beer that I tried in the Florida panhandle in a can was the WORST craft beer exampl I have ever tasted.
Absolutely dog shit. It had a revolting sour spoiled taste like they dumped fake lime juice concentrate in the fermenter.
It also had an almost tobacco like foul odor to it. I still cant believe that a brewer with any experience could make such
a bad beer. MY advice to Mr Bigtop is to sell his building to the circus and get out of the brewing business. Truly elephant
dung would smell better than your Key Lime beer. Unbelievably bad.
