UPDATED: JUL 14, 2008 Bottle thanks to Drnk_McDermott some months ago. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. The aroma is mostly light; some oregano and malt. The taste is kind of like a herb filled Wit; lots of wheat and spices, it does taste like Pizza a bit, but in a mostly good way. Very interesting for sure. Drinkable. If I had a pizza shop I’d sell this for sure. Original.

Bottle from Freindly Liqour, IN. Poured clear orange color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate pasta tomato aroma. Medium body and sticky texture. Medium sweet spicy flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable beer that was very different.

bottle - Well... this one is certainly different. It pours a slightly hazy yellow-orange and smells mainly of tomatoes and oregano. The flavor is of a light, malty ale with a moderate tomato paste taste and ample spices. I guess there was some garlic, but my taste buds may have been defective as I didn’t notice much. It beats the hell out of the only other beer with tomato I’ve had, the Bud/Bud Light cheladas, but of course that’s not saying much. Could have been worse...

Bottle at Toscanni, Fort Wayne, IN. Small off-white head that mostly diminished, virtually no lacing, transparent, carbonation noted, and a yellow golden hue. The aroma was old, musty, spicy, basil, some tomato notes, and garlic, garlic and more garlic. Ditto for the flavor and the garlic overpowers the taste IMO. Tingly mouthfeel and light-medium bodied. I had this beer with a delicious pizza and I do not buy into the advertisement that it tastes better with food especially pizza. NOT!! A novelty beer for sure and definitely one that I will not drink again. The waitress said that they have received a lot of mixed reactions about this beer and when she asked if I liked it I said "not at all as it’s pretty much garlic dominated and I like garlic but this is overkill" and two tables over a guy was drinking this beer and overheard my answer to the waitress and he had a look on his face like he couldn’t believe what I said about this beer. Oh well, she asked and I gave my honest opinion. Now it’s time for a "real" beer!

16oz bottle acquired in trade with lb4lb (thanks!). Poured a deeper and cloudy golden color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of pizza crust, oregano, tomatoes, and garlic. Tastes of garlic, oregano, other spices, and a lighter tomato breadiness. Interestingly different! Mamma Mia!

Bottle. Oregano, green pepper, tomato and bready malt in the nose. Very similar flavor - tomato & oregano over biscuit malt with hop bitterness and a touch of garlic in the finish. A well-done novelty beer.

Bottle. I had a few sips of this one straight from the bottle before I poured it. Let me tell you my expectations were quite low for this one. I was surprised to find a pretty tasty brew when I put this to my lips. It definitely tastes like pizza due to the spices utilized. I don’t know if I’d ever make the connection without reading the label, but the garlic, basil, and even a faint meaty flavor are apparent. The malts are sweet and easily accessible. I poured this one into a glass and was surprised to see a golden colored beer. It definitely "tastes amber" if that makes any sense. The aroma is not as a great as the flavor. Raw, leafy tomato is in the nose which is weird for a beverage. Taking a few sips after this, I decide I still like it fairly well. I don’t know if I’ll make any effort to get it again. . . maybe.

Hazy gold orange body with a large lightly off white head. The aroma has some light tomatoes and herbs. There is a definite garlic presence. The taste is light oregeno and basil. You get more of the tomato in the aftertaste. There is also some strong biscuit maltiness. A different brew that is interesting, but certainly not something to go with every mood. Kind of reminded of the pepperoni pizza flavored Combos snacks.

16oz bottle, no date. Clear yellow orange with small light yellow white head, fading to a ring. Pizza crust and oregano are dominant. Hints of salt are also present. Flavor adds some caramel malts that make it seem like beer. Not picking up on any tomato, garlic, or basil, though there is a bit of pepper. Semi-dry finish with low bitterness. A little metallic as well. Light body with light to moderate carbonation. Smelled like pizza, though didn’t really taste like it. I think I liked America’s version better.
