Tasted from a bottle at a tasting in mid-2012, this was a fun find at an otherwise serious tasting. Pours clear golden with a thin white head that left a thin collar of lace. The nose is very strange with basil, tomato sauce, and doughy malt. It really smells like a pizza. The beer tastes almost exactly like a cheap frozen pizza. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and a long basil and tomato finish.

Shared with momos crew. Golden pour with small white head dissipates. Huge oregano aroma. Smells like pizza goldfish and cheese bread sticks from a pizza place. Bready with basil and garlic. Gimmicky and lame but it could be worse. I would not drink more than half a glass but worth a taste.

Welp, thanks stevencon! This beer tastes, smells, and looks like Momo's. You don't eat pizza that isn't yours!

Poured into pint glass. Nice golden appearance. Smells just like pizza, weird! Tastes the same, great sipping but hard to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is disgustingly delicious. It really does taste like a pizza. Smells like doughy crust and oregano. Its light copper color with no lasting foam.

Aurelius (3914) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Savory, mineral, dry malty aroma - basil in anything dominates unless itís just in miniscule quantities. Iím torn on the appearance for this one - the label is so horrid, but itís got the good Sprecher íplumperí bottle. Almost clear gold beer, dense white head. Basically, pasta in the glass. Dry, starchy, bready, mild basil. Brothy finish. This ainít bad, but it ainít great. Drinkable, but itís just an idle curiousity. Planned this out right - I rate the first half of the beer, the rest I just pair with my meatloaf thatís coming out of the oven. ABC, Betton.

fattybladdy (453) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2014
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.

tectactoe (1187) - Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 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 donít want to drink it.

Bottle @ Chrisoís pre-GBBF Shindig. The pourís 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.

Palidor19 (2883) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2014
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.
