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.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 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 don’t want to drink it.

Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s gold with a small head. Strong oregano nose. Combos pizza snacks. More oregano flavors. Tomato water. A touch grainy. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, definitely strange, but not a bad gimmick.

The beer it's self is average, but the taste of basil and oregano is the dominate flavors. The beer is clean with an herb flavor that lingers all the way. The tomato and garlic is ever so subtle barley noticeable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is malty and watery with oregano. The appearance is deep gold. The taste has all the pizza elements. The palate is thin. Overall this is quite good.

thome50 (1064) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle from Wrye, thanks? ;) Pours a medium red with off white head. Aroma is oregano and tomato sauce forward. Taste is very pizza like with the oregano and spices really overwhelming the palate. Slight bitter and some sort of off flavored meat. Not pleasant.

Great and surprising pizza aroma. With tomato, oregano and even cheese. Very light body, lager like base. Pretty cool concept beer but that’s it.

Bottle 1pt. @ [ (chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig) by chriso - London ].

Clear medium yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, pale malt, tomato, spicy, pizza, oregano, salami - pepperoni. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130810]

Backlog: 500ml bottle from Half Time Beverage Poughkeepsie NY. Pours a hazy orange color with a small foamy white head. Pizza-ish aroma. Very herbal, oregano, basil, garlic cloves, and hints of malt and tomatoes. Taste is similar. Mostly lots of Italian herbs, malty, not much tomato, and hints of toasted garlic. Very strange, but surprisingly drinkable.

Bottle: thanks to andrewmb83. Aroma: rather malty, I do smell pizza, but not sure if its my brain playing tricks. I smell mostly malts. Appearance: pretty light with a thin white head. Taste: again, I don’t know if it is a trick but I taste pizza. Tastes mostly of malts but I do get a basil and oregano flavor as well. Palate: light bodied, soft carbonation. Overall: glad I got to try it. Great idea.
