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.

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.

emacgee (4138) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 26, 2008
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.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Amber color. Smell of Pizza. So weird that I can smell garlic, spice, tomato and malt. Taste is something to get used to. At first you taste the spice and then its like you have had enough of it already. Smell is great!

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle shared by mrfacto at the CC gathering. Thanks Matt! Aroma is very pizza-like--oregano, tomatoes, garlic, maybe even some pepperoni! Flavor is a bit of a step down from the aroma, but still pizza. I like pizza and I like beer, but not so much together as one. Still, very happy to sample this.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle shared at the Carolina Crew Gathering at Turdís Ė thanks to MrFacto for sharing. Or should we thank him? I donít know, but this is such a weird, messed up beer. And heaven help me, I actually started to like it a bit. Okay, thatís not entirely true. It looks like an average IPA, has a thin mouthfeel, and Iím ultimately not sure what this really contributes qua beer. But damned if it doesnít smell like stewed tomatoes, oregano, and basil. An experience.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Bottle. Curiosity got to me here, as when I walk by a car crash. Aroma is dirty and earthy, tomato, oregano, garlic, basil and a light sweet citrus. Pale orange pour with frothy beige head. Sticky, lightly tart, lightly bitter and bready taste is a bit rough, a bit crusty, overspiced with both a weak malt base and uninteresting bg hops. Light body, chalky after. I could see basil being used as an ingredient more often, based on this, especially in some off-kilter saisons, but otherwise ugh. Not unpleasant, as expected, and not even liquid pizza, as others here are claiming, but nothing worth buying twice or even finishing - a three ounce novelty.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2008
16oz bottle-A slightly hazy very carbonated body with a small ring for a head. Aroma of pizza sauce. Taste of oregano, basil, slight hops, and slight tomato. This medium bodied brew is a little bitter as well. I wish I tried the original. A different tasting brew.
