Pours a transparent golden bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh tomatoes and authentic spices. Body starts somewhat thinner than an actual pizza but the flavor is pretty consistent. I’ve had the America’s Brewpub version and it’s slightly better, but both are pretty consistent and pizza tasting without any off-flavors.

Pours a light copper color with with a white head. Aroma is spicy, basil, tomatoes, garlic, and a little doughy. Flavor is spicy, basil, tomatoes, garlic, and a bitter peppery finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poursa cloudy pale yellow color with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is garlic, oregano, pizza sauce, basil, and hints of citrus hops. Taste is about the same but it is very balanced. The spices define the beer, not the other way around like other beers of this style. Thinking about this beer one would imagine something thick and a mess, but it’s not. My favorite of this style thus far.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Words uttered once I smelled this "Holy shit this smells like pizza". It certainly does smell like pizza, so much so that I would have been able to identify it for sure even had I not know what beer this was. Tomato, basil, and just all around pizza. Flavor is less specifically pizza than the aroma though it is there too. Tomato. A little watery and bland underneath the spices. This is not really a good beer but I think it certainly succeeds at what it was trying to do and is a good gimmick.

OK, I had to try this one. Started off promising enough with an aroma of garlic, basil, tomato sauce, all the things that you like on a pizza are in this bottle.
First sip was an attack on the senses. Wow! This is different! and not too bad. Then the second sip, hmm. Then the third, I’m not sure about this. Ended up a drainpour after the 4th sip. This stuff gets nastier and nastier. Might be a god idea to share a bottle with 20 of your closest friends. or not

Call me crazy, but I kind of liked this one. Pours yellowish gold with a small whitish head. Smell is basil, oregano and dough. Taste is malty, doughiness with obvious oregano and pizza and pizza sauce like spices. The doughy, yeasty malt and pizza spices work pretty well together, and while not something I’d drink a lot of, it was fun to share and went down pretty easily for me. Definitely a pizza beer.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
sampled at dark lord day 2008. pours apricot colored, quickly dissipating white head. the aroma is definitely reminicent of pizza, with tomato, basil, oregano and garlic, but i didn’t catch any of it in the flavor. a light bodied, and ultimately unimpressive beer.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2009 Terrible. Looks like a dirty lager in the glass. Thin head and all garlic aroma. Smells and tastes old, moldy, and full of unk (and not like George Clinton funk, i mean old sock funk). Tastes almost like pizza flavored combos, but with tons of garlic and basil added in. Garlic, garlic everywhere. Garlic just stays and stays and stays. Garlic overpowers everything. Much more a "garlic beer" than a "pizza beer". I give it a few extra points for the effort but I’d never have this again.

Imagine you’ve quickly eaten a flat crust tomato and basil pizza seasoned lightly with italian seasoning. You drink a fairly average golden ale and before you’ve swallowed, you burp and let it out of your nose. That is what this beer tastes like.

Well its exactly what it says it is, smelled and tasted of all those herbs and spices listed,like a piece of pizza mixed into a Miller produact. Not by glass of tea
