Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2014
THOUGHTS: Dear, God! It really smelled like Pizza. Or at least what my mustache smells like after eating pizza. Not as awful as I thought it could have been. It was sort of like watered-down, carbonated tomato sauce. I didnít mind the smell or taste, but I donít know if they work as a beer. TECHNICAL: Drank 5/12/2013. Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light, orangey gold with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished leaving virtually no lacing. The aroma had toasted malt and cracker; garlic bread, bread stick, garlic basil, tomato and oregano; and of those garlic might have been the strongest. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was slightly sweet, moderately acidic and ever so slightly bitter with a short duration. There was tomato, pale malts, garlic, basil, oregano, pizza, tomato sauce, hints of caramel, bread, cracker, vegetable, slight straw, and pizza bagel bites. The light body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a dry and ever-so-slightly astringent finish.

Bottle to stemless wine glass (just like the bottle suggests). Looks solid; a hazy apricot with eggshell head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells of basil, tomato paste, and garlic. Tastes like it smells with some oregano as well. Average on the palate. Interesting, but not something Iíd have again; a little goes a long way.

bartlebier (1807) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog). 12oz bottles from CHI, consumed on site and at home when its BB passed its gift date. Tastes like Aldi plastic bruschetta mix shaker that has fallen from the kitchen cabinet straight into a Midwest Lite Lager, although one slightly better than Miller. Fizzy, watery, with heaps of artificial oregano and it seems iodised salt. Not wholly horrible, and not a drainpour, this hard to resist gimmick. Pity the bottles were so heavy or I would have brought some extras to show what the US of A can come up with, apart from DFH 90minute and Bourbon County.

stevencon (453) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2014
Shared with momos crew. Golden pour with small white head dissipates. Huge oregano aroma. Smells like pizza goldfish and cheese bread sticks from a pizza place. Bready with basil and garlic. Gimmicky and lame but it could be worse. I would not drink more than half a glass but worth a taste.

Welp, thanks stevencon! This beer tastes, smells, and looks like Momo's. You don't eat pizza that isn't yours!

Poured into pint glass. Nice golden appearance. Smells just like pizza, weird! Tastes the same, great sipping but hard to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is disgustingly delicious. It really does taste like a pizza. Smells like doughy crust and oregano. Its light copper color with no lasting foam.

Aurelius (4231) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Savory, mineral, dry malty aroma - basil in anything dominates unless itís just in miniscule quantities. Iím torn on the appearance for this one - the label is so horrid, but itís got the good Sprecher íplumperí bottle. Almost clear gold beer, dense white head. Basically, pasta in the glass. Dry, starchy, bready, mild basil. Brothy finish. This ainít bad, but it ainít great. Drinkable, but itís just an idle curiousity. Planned this out right - I rate the first half of the beer, the rest I just pair with my meatloaf thatís coming out of the oven. ABC, Betton.

fattybladdy (582) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2014
16oz bottle to pint glass. Hazy dark orange appearance with large amount of white head. Does in fact smell like pizza, although not strongly so, and certainly not in a good way, its a bit nauseating actually. Tastes weird, some faint pizza sauce, very watery with a slightly creamy texture. Just not good all around.

tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Bottle: straw yellow color, lots of clarity, only a mild chill haze with plenty of carbonation bubbles rising up to a frothy, stark white, fragile head. Aroma is like a bad lager mixed with pizza sauce. Oregano, basil, grain, & a slight metallic, steel-y note, almost with a hint of skunk on the back-end. Tomato-y, likely an influence of the aforementioned spices. Taste is similar... Strange. Oregano, basil, grain, sharp yeast, faint skunk.... Getting that metallic twinge again. Prego mixed with Coors? Eh, the novelty can only carry it so far. I love pizza sauce but I donít want to drink it.
