In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Short’s Brewery. It is their Key Lime Pie. It is a fruit beer and dessert beer. If you ready my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please read them to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has a slightly cloudy copper to light amber color without a head on this fruit beer. The smell has of graham crackers and a slight lime notes. The taste has some interesting and complex notes. It is a sweet heavy lime but there is notes of sweet marshmallow to graham crackers. The aftertaste is sweet lime notes. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.shortsbrewing.com):
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.

Closing, I had to crack this beer open to get rid of the bad taste from the Atwater Blueberry Cobbler Ale. I was hoping this fruit and dessert beer would better. I have to say it is so much better. I love my key lime pie so I knew this would be a no brainer. I love blueberry pie so I thought the same thing about Atwater Brewery brew. You can kind of taste the graham crackers and sweetest of the marshmallow notes. It is pretty complex and that is a good. You can pick up notes and something new in each sip. I highly recommend this beer, if you can find another bottle. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
