Pours a hazy yellow orangish color. Smells pretty pizzaish, straight down to a bit of a cheasy aroma... perhaps my brain filling in the blanks. Pretty scary. Flavor is thinnish lager with wierd tomato thing going on, definite herbs. Yeah, itís a novelty at best and I dont think this is really going to do much for sprechers image, but worth a try at least once.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 16 ounce bottle. I will be honest... I was a bit scared to try this beer. The concept reminded me of Bud Chelada which was a horrible experience. However, I tried going into this with an open mind. We had a few pizzas ordered on a Sunday night so I thought there was no better time to try this brew. Poured a hazy yellow color with a small white head that disappeared VERY quickly. The smell had me scared at first... it smelled like a pizza; oregano, tomato, and pepper filled my nose. When I started drinking it, I was pleasantly surprised. It paired VERY well with a few slices of pizza. It was very refreshing and tasted like a pale lager with pizza spice hints. I know it sounds weird but it was good. I definitely recommend NOT drinking this on its own... have a few slices of pizza and wash it down with this brew. I was impressed for what it is...

OldGrowth (2619) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2008
bottle, at carolina crew get together, provided by mrfacto. Ok aroma, stewed tomato, oregano, little sourdough. Pale orangy gold color, good head that faded quickly. Minor lace. Bitter flavor, Like aroma really. Canít say more about it, Lite body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Kind of amazing in itís ability to deliver on itís name sake, but not one Iíd drink abunch of.

Big 20 beer tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Well I love pizza but this is scary. Scary in sense that I liked it. It was like eating a good pizza and washing it down with a gulp of beer. Oregano, pepperoni and tomato sauce. Funny.

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, thatís amore. So yeah, it smells like a pizza, but it doesnít taste much like one. Then again, I donít want my beer tasting like a pizza. Pale yellow with next to no head. Aroma of cheese, garlic, basil, oregano. Taste of mild garlic to go with light beer qualities of malts and hops. Body is light and oily.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Poured from a 16oz bottle and served in a shaker. This beer poured a hazy golden amber with a thin, off-white head that slowly faded away. Not much lace to speak of. The aroma of the beer was made up of oregano, pale malts, and a touch of garlic. Interesting!?! The flavor consisted of garlic bread, Italian spices, and sweet malts. The spices actually do give off some pizza essence. The mouthfeel was light-bodied with moderate carbonation. Actually not all that bad. I probably would never drink it again, but it was fun to try once.

Strykzone (4832) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2008
This is different. It smells just like a pizza. It doesnít much taste like one, though. It does taste a bit like pizza dough. Perhaps a bit of garlic. There is also a bit of malt and hop and it has a nice amount of zing to the feel. Iím not sure the world needed this beer but it was unique.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Pours cloudy and orange/yellow. Aroma is Tomatoes and sweety malty. Moderate mouth feel with a sweet malty backing. Some qualities, in the beginning of Oregano and basil were present. Interesting with a clean finish that is rather refreshing.

Clearish yellow amber. Smell is pizza dough, oregano and well... pizza. Palate is pale lager and pizza and metallic pepperoni. A hint chalky in the finish. Very carbonated and very thin. Overall, not a great one. It is weird and pizza like - I will give it that but after a day at the Dark Lord release - this was not the highlight of my night.

Thanks facto for bringing this to the Carolina gathering. Pours a clear gold with a white head. The nose was exactly what you would expect, pizza, tomoato, oregano, pizaa all around. the flavor is exactly the same and it is what it is. Very much so pizza and herbs. Donít know how they did it but its pizza-beer.
