I wanted to like this, but can find no reason to purchase again. I caught a faint scent of key lime in just one of the six cans I tried. I never caught a taste of key lime- not in initial taste, drinking, nor aftertaste. Remove "key lime" from the name, and it would not be missed. Mediocre. Pass on this.

12 oz can.

It is a hazy, unfiltered orangish gold. Off white to beige foam.

Smells a little citrusy, like dirty dishwater (stale) and grainy with a bit of corriander spice.

Tastes a lot like key lime pie, but not necessarily a real good one. Kind of like a frozen pie, or some artificial flavored candy a bit. There is biting lime, some wheat, a hint of sweet creme that is a little cool whip like that I swear I am not imagining, and a slight corriander kick.

Fairly easy drinking. Enjoyable, especially on the ocean front on a 90 degree evening, but not great.

Served to me on-tap at the brewery in a standard pint glass, this beer draws a slightly cloudy/hazy medium golden color with a nice white head that's initially an inch thick when first served to me that settles to pretty much nothing after a few sips, just a faint trace of a ring of foam lining the inside of the glass. Zero lacing at all. Aromas of crisp, somewhat bready malts and wheat to be sure along with some definite lime. The taste is pretty much the same, with crisp, sort of bready malt along with wheat and a nice lime presence. Light hop presence to round this out flavor wise. A simple and straight forward flavor profile. The lime adds just a hint of astringent tart sourness that's absolutely perfect. Has a crisp, yet smooth, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with light to moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish. Easy to drink in the good way. Very refreshing and enjoyable in this hot and humid Florida weather.
